After looking at several fish and chip restaurants which seemed extortionate, we were given a leaflet by a chap dressed as an 18th century sailor! We sat upstairs which was tastefully decorated and spacious. The service was good and the food lovely. Reasonably priced too. Even the kids meal had huge chunks of fresh fish.

So pleased we choose this restaurant for lunch! From the outside it looks quite small and we hadn’t realised there was a large seating area upstairs. We were a party of 8 so we didn’t think we would get a seat as down stairs looked full.
We were politely shown upstairs to a lovely room but unfortunately didn’t have the best harbour view, this was the only down side as the food was just scrumptious!
Our children had homemade chicken nuggets, beans and drink for £3.50! while we had the famous Whitby fish and chips.
They make their own Tartare sauce here which should be bottled as we had never had better anywhere!!
Can’t wait to return next year.

I have eaten there twice this week and to be honest both meals were truly scrumptious. The staff are nice and very friendly. Now I can personally recomend the home made cheesecake(which I had today). I am not a plate scraper as a rule - but even I scrapped the plate. It was truly yum. Excellent value for money and cant recomend it enough. When in Whitby just look for Captain Cook or go to Baxtergate opposite the Yorkshire Bank. It will be well worth it.

We had several conversations with the publicity man who was handing out leaflets outside and then the next time he had turned into a young lady. She said it was his day off but to look out for him because he was now sporting a Captain Cook outfit. We had a drink in The Angel (Wetherpoons) and tried The Harbour View. It was a pleasant surprise on a busy Whitby weekend to find room (upstairs). The area was bright and clean. Unfortunately for us the table overlooking the harbour was taken. We enjoyed haddock and chips with bread and butter and a pot of tea. What else! The staff inside were like our original friends on the harbour side, friendly, knowledgeable and loyal to their employer. Highly recommended. We later saw you can get in from the harbour and not just from Baxtergate.
