Simply the best fish and chips I have ever had. The batter on the fish was divine, so light and crispy! The portion was very generous as well. I didn't need much to eat later in the day.

Visited one weekend lunchtime. Cheaper than some of the other fish and chips places in Whitby but just as tasty. Lovely cooked fish and chips, definitely worth a visit!
