We popped in here for lunch and we were welcomed by very friendly staff. We ordered and the food was brought within a reasonable time and was delicious, the home made pie in particular. A very pleasant experience.

Good takeaway fish and chips, quick and friendly and efficient service. They let you put your own salt and vinegar on which is good!

By far one of Whitby's best chip and fish restaurants. The food here is fantastic. We were looked after even with some confusion with the order. The place is clean and presented well. My only down side to the whole meal was one of the...More
