A Trip To Whitby isn’t complete without a visit to
The Magpie Cafe

It’s known throughout North Yorkshire and beyond as one of the finest fish restaurants in the area. One of the things every visitor to Whitby notices is the queue outside Magpie in all weathers and seasons to sample the finest fish dishes in Yorkshire. Our fish and chips, seafood chowder and other excellent fish dishes set us apart and our reputation is based on the good quality of the food and service we provide to our customers.

“Not just fish and chips, this is exceptional food. Superb cod or haddock in crispy batter and chips with real quality. Chowder dishes with rich sauces, fish stew combinations that will enchant. We go whenever we are in Whitby and have sorely missed it this year due to closure. It is truly unique beyond its Whitby home.”

“Excellent food, recommend the mussels and lemon sole portions very generous. Highly recommended, nice atmosphere, waitresses very friendly and cater for people with a smaller appetite offering the smaller fish portions I’d requested.”
