Feeling fancy and refined? Try the Star Inn The Harbour

The Star Inn The Harbour

Brought to you by Andrew Pern, whose name is synonymous with his Michelin-starred pub, The Star Inn at Harome. He had long wished to open a restaurant in his hometown to celebrate the ingredients he grew up surrounded by and began to learn to cook with. The menu features Catch-of-the-Day fish and meat specials and also world-famous North Yorkshire Moors produce, such as furred and feathered game. Surf ‘n’ Turf-style dishes are a restaurant speciality mirroring its ‘one-foot-in-the-sea-one-foot-on-the-Moors’ location.

Fancy unrivalled views straight out across the sea? It’s got to be The Fisherman’s Wife

Located on the winding Kyber Pass, the restaurants elevated position enjoys unspoilt views across the North Sea, perfect for watching the waves over a relaxed lunch. Expect to find classic Fish & Chips alongside more elevated specials such as Fruit De Mer. Want to take in the sunshine? Visit their dog-friendly outdoor seating area or order from their takeaway hatch and find the perfect picnic spot.

What to try famous a fish dish? Give the one and only The Magpie Café a visit…

Magpie Cafe

Located in Whitby and housed in a distinctive black and white building overlooking the harbour, the world-famous Magpie Café needs no introduction and is a staple within Yorkshire for some of the finest fish and chips around. Recognisable by the long queues down the street of people waiting for the chance of a cancellation, booking is essential!

Treating the family? Let the Royal Fisheries family treat you to a perfect meal…

Royal Fisheries

A favourite with our tribe, Fusco’s Fish and Chips and Royal Fisheries is a family run business dating back to the early 1950s. The restaurant has recently celebrated over 50 years based in Whitby and is looking towards many more. With a traditional fish and chips menu featuring desserts that will take you back to your childhood, this is a perfect family-friendly restaurant to get some quality fish and chips.

If you’re a sucker for seafood, Sandgate Seafoods is one is for you…

Sandgate Seafoods

Arguably one of the best wet-fish shops in Whitby, you can sample some of their seafood delicacies whilst wondering the cobbles of Church Street and stock up on lots of fresh fish and seafood to cook at home later! Luxurious lobster, langoustines, prawns, the list of sensational seafood and fish goes on and on! Their beautiful window displays are both eyecatching and enough so that I can never pass by without going in.
