We visited "Trenchers" for lunch and it was fantastic, the staff were very friendly and nothing was to much trouble. the cod and chips were the best we had tasted, we had been to "The Magpie Cafe" the week before and were a bit dissapointed but were definatly not dissapointed in "Trenchers". the batter melted in your mouth it was so light and the fish was lovely. the dessert was very nice too but be warned, the portions are huge so if you want a dessert go small!!!!

Were recommended this fish and chippery by a friend who favours it above the Magpie. The meal was excellent, but on checking afterwards, found that the large cod and chips which we had, was in fact £2 per portion more expensive than the Magpie, and was not as good - although it was very good. A massive serving, but being a lover of thick crispy batter, found the batter to be thin, holey, and not up to standard. Also thought it a bit of a rip off to charge for bread and butter by the slice when you are spending nearly £15 per head on a plate of fish and chips. So with paying extra for bread and butter, mushy peas, and tea - it makes for a very expensive fish and chip meal.

However - very family friendly, spotlessly clean, and the toilets (with two young children) were a delight to use. Staff very friendly and helpful - found us a large window table with room for two high chairs.

Do agree witih other reviews that for the price, there are better fish and chips to be had in Whitby, but if you want some large portions, a clean and friendly environment, and you can't get into the Magpie, try here, but make sure that you have a thick wallet.

Restaurant was spotlessly clean, staff were all very friendly. Fish and chips were delicious, batter was light and the cod was fresh. Would definitely stop here again.
