The Marine's chef Simon Truman serves up the best fish and chips to be found anywhere in the country, and not at silly prices found elsewhere in Whitby either.

Fantastic restaurants adorn the beautiful streets of Whitby. Along the harbour front you will find world class cuisine. Whitby is famous for its fish on a global scale, and some of the best fish restaurants are right here.

A small portion (Enough by most peoples standards) is £4.99. For those with a larger appetite then the big portion is larger than the plate and still only £9.99 in 2012, beat that if you can. We doubt you will !!

Real Whitby Rates The Marine 5 out of 5

Greens on Bridge street has the most extensive fish menu you will find, and all locally sourced too.

Not to forget the Magpie either as the ques outside tell the story of how popular their fish and chips have become. That said, we still prefer The Marine.

Harry’s Bar and The Moon And Sixpence are found near the lower harbour on the west side. Their menus offer a wider choice than the others mentioned above who focus largely on fish. The Steak at The Moon And Sixpence is one of the best Ive ever tasted.

If its Italian your after then Cosa Nostra is the place for you. Also worthy of note is Mutreys who make the best Pizza in Whitby. Chef Garry Mutrey made his name at The Huntsman in Aislaby. You’ll find Mutreys Restaurant on Grape lane, It has a very special feel to it and an atmosphere that buzzes on a busy summers evening.

If its a late night curry, we suggest that The Passage To India in Station Square will take some beating.

If its a smaller more traditional meal or snack your after then we can endorse places like : The Humble Pie And Mash, Java (The burgers are amazing) or Sherlocks. All locally owned and each very special in their own unique way.

Whatever your taste we are sure you will find something to your pleasing in and around Whitby.

Sadly we have recently learned that  Weatherspoons are to set up in town – BOO, HISS. This concerns Real Whitby as it may effect the business of the smaller locally owned restaurants we’ve already mentioned above. These are business that our friends and acquaintances have taken time, money and a great deal of creativity and enthusiasm to build up. We hope you will continue to support locally owned unique business over Weatherspoons when it opens. Otherwise Whitby may loose those unique places that make the town so very special.
