Great choice of ales and cracking fish & chips in a great location. I enjoyed the Deuchars and my wife had Moretti lager. Haddock & chips was massive and cheaper than most places, a nice place to spend an hour or two

We came to Whitby on a family day out 22nd February '17' and after chatting to a local resident ; they recommended this establishment. When we first entered the pub it looked a liitle gloomy and a traditional interior but we were made very welcome. We originally were planning on having a drink then a meal somewhere else but after...

Visited here after travelling from leicester for the week. Fancied fish and chips and what we actually got was whale and chips! My father and wife couldnt finish them. Asked how big they were and was told 18oz fillets! Cooked really well and good selection of beer aswell. At £14 for the two fish and chips would deffinatley recommend.

There are some tables that have excellent views over the harbour mouth which greatly add to the ambience if you can get one. The food was of excellent value and portions more than adequate. I enjoyed the fish pie immensely and my wife did not want a big lunch so just had a prawn cocktail, which was a meal in...

When in Whitby we normally eat in the establishment next door to The Board Inn, but it was very full so we thought we'd have a change. The dining area which I believe seats 46 people, is down a flight of steps from the main bar area and overlooks the harbour. It has a small bar, the tables are quite...

We stopped at this place for a Saturday night, its location is ideal, right in the center of Whitby by the harbor, and at the foot of the 199 steps to the Abbey. We were up in room 2 which was an attic room, it was a little awkward going up the tight winding steps, but nothing to be bothered...

Having a few days away in Whitby and just had to try the fish and chips somewhere. We were advised that the food here was good. The fish and chips were probably the best ones that I have ever had. This was on a Saturday night and at 9 o'clock a singer came on. Great food and great entertainment, what...

Called in for a couple of drinks nice friendly staff music not too loud so could still chat. It was a Tuesday when we called so not so busy. Would call again especially as my other half could have an old peculiar and was impressed that you could buy cockles and mussels.
