Our Whitby Fish and Chip Recommendations 2015

Here's a list of our top fish and chip recommendations for Whitby in 2015:

Hadley's Fish and Chips

A firm favourite with locals and visitors alike, Hadley's is one of Whitby's longest running eating establishments and remains a family business to thsi day.

Excellent service and delicious meals ensure they're always busy - so get there early! Having said that - they've plenty of room downstairs and a nice dining room on the first floor too. Family friendly and great value!

Silver Street Fisheries

Silver Street Fisheries is one of Whitby's best kept secrets. Small, but perfectly formed. It's the perfect place to grab a take-away (to wander the streets with, or eat at their outdoor seating) away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre.

It's only a few seconds walk from the Whale Bones, and the Khyber Pass, so our suggestion is get your Fish and Chips and walk up Silver Street, turn the corner (to the right) and find a bench overlooking the harbour. Can't be beaten!

The Magpie Cafe

Will there ever not be a queue outside The Magpie? Probably not - it has an enduring appeal and consistently good reviews so is (probably) worth the wait (or you can always book before you arrive to avoid disappointment).

Amazing fish and chips as well as an extensive fish menu featuring all kinds of wonderful creations. Definitely worth a visit at least once in a lifetime - but if you can't bare queuing read on...

The Magpie Take-Away

The antidote to the queues? Try The Magpie's take-away. It's just next door, the fish is just as good, as are the chips. The only difference is you don't get a plate - but then you do have the option of strolling leisurely down Whitby's wonderful West Pier and enjoying the view towards Sandsend, or across the harbour to the Abbey.

Perfect (provided it's not raining)!

Quayside Fisheries

They're always winning awards, so it's no wonder they remain a hit. They too have both restaurant and takeaway so take your pick!

New for 2015: Abbey Wharf

New for 2015 is Abbey Wharf - in what used to be The Shambles on the East Side, in the Market Place. It's been totally refurbished, including an extended balcony with outside seating and a mezzanine level for private parties and overflow from the restaurant.

The bar features a selection of world beers and unusual spirits. And they have a takeaway option too (though not for beer, I don't think).

Yet to be tried - but definitely on the 'to do' list.
