“Fantastic staff, great calamari !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

As always great food, cooked to perfection. The staff are always helpful and knowledgable. The queues were not bad at all for a Bank holiday. Tracey our waitress was fantastic, explained about the different fish on offer and made the whole evening special.

“Lives up to expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

Worth the obligatory wait in the queue. I had battered halibut and chips; the fish was cooked perfectly, the meat was moist and the batter really crispy but not greasy. My partner had battered ling and chips, with a massive portion of peas. Good food and very quick and attentive service.

“Good food at good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

Thoroughly enjoyed my lunch which was well cooked and considering the size of the portions was good value. The service was very good. Can't comment if this is the best fish and chip shop in Whitby but I liked what was on the menu which was extensive and can cater for all needs.

Excellent food and service. Good sized 'Yorkshire' portions! Audrey was a star waitress with a sense of humour.
