Featured Whitby Restaurants
1. Magpie Café Fish & seafood restaurant in Whitby 14 Pier Rd - YO21
“Bloody brilliant!” This “rightly famous” harbourside legend enjoys well-earned renown as “the UK’s best chippy” (“there is a reason we wait in the cold North Sea air to get in here”) and is “always a must-visit when in the area”. “There’s a huge menu, despite which everything is fantastically fresh” and dishes come in “Yorkshire portions”; and while “it can feel a bit cramped when full to bursting, it’s worth it for a great lunch overlooking the sea”. On May 1 2017, disaster struck when the upper floors of this 17th-century building were razed by fire, forcing the closure of the restaurant (but not the take-away). Re-opening is planned for late-October 2017.
2. Trenchers Fish & chips restaurant in Whitby New Quay Rd - YO21
A “good old-fashioned fish ’n’ chippie at it best”; OK, so the “clean and efficient decor” can seem “a little clinical”, but the food at this celebrated, booth-lined venue, a stone’s throw from the quay, is “wholesome and enjoyable” and “some people go just to see the loos” (multi-award-winning and anything but bog-standard!)
3. Greens British, Modern restaurant in Whitby 13 Bridge St - YO22
2014 Review: “Fantastic” cooking of “fish straight from the quayside” inspires largely positive reports for this ground-floor bistro (with more formal restaurant above); its ratings are undercut, however, by those who say it’s “not as good as it was”.
4. The Star Inn The Harbour British, Modern restaurant in Whitby Langborne Road - YO21
Andrew Pern (of The Star Inn at Harome) fulfilled his wish of having a restaurant in his hometown of Whitby in summer-2017. The harbour-side venture features Catch-of-the-Day fish specials and game from the North Yorkshire Moors.
