Living on its past reputation, meal was okay but nothing special. Too many tables felt crammed in. I will not visit again too many other good fish and chip restaurants in town that leaves the Magpie way behind...

Don't get me wrong I love fish and chips at the seaside and have always been prepared to queue to get into The Magpie every time we visit Whitby. However on our last visit we were surprised to find no one waiting at all and even more surprised to find it almost empty inside! The food was still good but... More

We've never had a poor meal here, it's always excellent. We all try lots of different types of dishes from fish and chips, fish pie, salads, vegetarian, to name but a few and they are all excellent meals. The service is very good and the staff are attentive and friendly.

Good quality fish and chips, with a friendly atmosphere and a good service all round, was worth the visiting this very reputable establishment.

We make an annual trip to Whitby and always go to the Maggie Fantastic fish and chips and good size portions. The battered jumbo sausages are also amazing! Well worth a visit. If it's raining when you go and you have to queue (which you often do) they'll even come out with brollies so you don't get too wet!

We've been visiting Whitby for many years but this was our first time at the magpie as there is always a queue waiting to get in but was well worth the wait

their takeaway service really lived up to our expectations. We saw the previous outstanding reviews so we were curious to try it. The queue to go into the cafe was really along as well as the takeaway queue. However, the staff were efficient and we didn't have to wait that long. The variety of fish they sell was also great....

What can I say that hasn't been said by many already? The Magpie has won pretty much every award invented and many times too. The queues that build up say the lot. We usually get take away and eat looking over the harbour. It is an institution in Whitby. Time of visit? Most years since they opened. A visit to... More
