Whitby Fish and Chips

Post by moodyblue2 » Thu Apr 04, 2013 11:49 am

On my last few visits I have been very disappointed with the fish and chips offered by the following :

Trenchers
Mr Chips
Riverside Fisheries

only reasonable and have had better :

Quayside

So where else would people suggest for best for Eating In and best for takeaway?

Well those are the ones we get ours from. And we live here.

Maybe your taste buds have become accustomed to the taste?

Riverside Fisheries was particularly bad, (tasted like the oil hadn't been changed all week ended up throwing it away!)

I can get far better tasting fish from my local chippie in Kent!

LOL, I'm coming to Whitby in June for a week, where else would people recommend for good fish & chips and how many still use fresh Whitby caught fish?

The fisheries named are quite good although frtom time to time they do vary - but generally good quality. Trenchers for a nice sit down meal is very good - both food and service.

Local fish? Trenchers certainly use locally sourced fish - they advertise which boat caught it. But there isn't too much fish landed at Whitby these days. Most of the Whitby boats fish out of other harbours for financial and logistical reasons.

Given the better methods of keeping fish fresh and the speed of transport I don't suppose you'd be able to tell the difference from fish caught on a Whitby boat off dogger bank and fish caught there, landed at South Shields and whisked freshly caught to Whitby.

I quite like the Railway Chippy - a nice local chip shop, not a tourist place.

We like Hadley's, better still when they did 'take away'.

Royal Fisheries is by far my favourite. And a friend of my wife works there so she's told us how it is behind the smokescreen. Its clean and good

:mrgreen: didn't manage to get there in the end but had very good quality take away from the Quayside (Cod & chips for £6) Was impressed that they had signs up saying where the fish was caught (of Iceland) and that the potatoes being used were from Goole.

We also had sit down fish and chips later in the week in Robertsons (near the swing bridge). This was excellent, best we'd had in Whitby a few years. Cod, chips, bread & butter and a pot of tea for £7.25. Very good value.
