Newest Review: ... black and white building, dating from 1750. It stands opposite Whitby fish market, enforcing the statement on the menu that all the fish is fresh off the Whitby boats. As the queue moves up the worn stone steps, you can look inside, through the lovely bay windows to see laughing customers with huge plates of food in front of them, which only serves to increase your determination to get ... more

When we told people that we were going to spend a weekend in Whitby, almost everybody said the same thing: "Are you going to visit the best fish and chip shop in Britain"? The fame of the Magpie Café can be partly attributed to Rick Stein, who found that the Magpie had, "opened my eyes to how good a chip shop could be". By telling Britain that they could get the best fish and chips in the world in Whitby, he created the longest queue in Britain at the same time!

One of the best places to eat I have come across is The Magpie Cafe in Whitby, it is situated down thepier and has a world wide following, in fact it has had awards from Egon Ronay and les Routiers, plus more.

The fish is gorgeous and you can choose small, medium ... Read the complete review
