Visiting the restaurant to see what the fuss was about we decided to call fancying some fish and chips, the food was lovely but it felt really odd for us to be sitting at table being waited on to have fish and chips. So we'll stick to the takeaways 😂

I am stood waiting for a meal in the take away. I cannot believe how many of the staff in the kitchen are touching their faces messing with their hair and using their mobiles and then serving customers hand to face hygiene really needs looking at. But the fish and chips are lovely

We visit here regularly & always enjoy our meals. The service is prompt & friendly. Portion sizes are generous. Fish has a lovely light crispy batter. Not tried the deserts but they look very tempting. Can't wait to return again next month for our family get together.

Shame that the fish is not better quality. Chips are good though. We have tried both take out and restaurant. Stopped visiting because the fish isn't good quality.

We (2) are regular diners at whitbys and the experience is always 100 percent spot on. The service is slick and faultless, and the food never disappoints. The quality of the fish is exceptionally good, hits the spot every time, the batter is especially good light and airy, the batter scraps could be made into a speciality in their own... More

Hard to beat this fish and chip restaurant. Beautiful fresh taste, different size portions available. I had a small fish and chips and it was still filling. Very comfortable dining. It's advisable to book as certain times are very busy - I am tod they have coach trips to the restaurant. Definitely worth a visit (or three).

While the best gish and chips in the world are available only at the coast, preferable Yorkshire East Coast, this reataurang comes a close second. Good meaty haddock, crisp chips and decent mushy peas. Good service from friendly efficient staff who don't look at you sadly when you're eating alone or give poorer service to singles. Nice wines to accompany... More

I have an 89 year old aunt who introduced us to Whitby's. When we visit Sheffield and want to take her for a meal, she insists on Whitby's. This weekend I came with six others of my family up from Oxford and Devon and we had a superb meal and a range of drinks from the bar. The fish and... More

Good fish and chips. Service good and quite good value, we have only been in the takeaway part as I have been told the restaurant is quite expensive for what you eat.
