We eat here every time we come to Whitby and we are never disappointed. The fish and chips are to die for especially with gravy!!

Stop at Trenchers for a quick dinner with a couple of colleagues taking a tour to Whitby for the evening. Looking for some fish and chips and I think we found a real gem.

Staff were welcoming & friendly, you weren't rushed, very relaxing. Fish was lovely & fresh with a nice light crispy batter and the... More

Excellent friendly service and the food was fab. We shared a large haddock and chips with a lovely curry sauce! Not too much batter on the fish and the chips were fresh, tasty and delicious. Highly recommend!

We had plain fish and chips though there is plenty more 'refined' choices on the menu. Absolutely lovely. Good service friendly and great environment. It's set up a little bit like an Italian ice cream parlour -so perhaps not for intimate candlelight dining - but for a good meal out (and a notably fairly priced wine list) it is a... More
