Fish and Chips

Fish and Chips

No trip to Whitby is complete without sampling the best fish and chips in England!

A trip to Whitby isn't complete without a visit to one of the copious number of fish and chip shops and restaurants. The Magpie Cafe is the most well known and considered one of the best throughout Yorkshire and beyond. One of the things every visitor in Whitby notices is the queue outside the Magpie in all seasons and weather conditions as people come to sample the finest fish dishes in Yorkshire. Recommended by Rick Stein as the best fish and chip restaurant in the country.

Our personal favourites include:

  • Hadley's, which is a fairly smart looking fish and chip restaurant across the swing bridge on the right hand side.
  • Trencher's, which is opposite the train station

If you can't wait that long, we absolutely love to stop at Thompson's on the way to Whitby, which is a large fish and chip shop/resturant on the A64 just after York roundabout on the left hand side.
