The Magpie Café

14 Pier Road, WHITBY, YO21 3PU

The acclaimed Magpie Café has been the home of North Yorkshire's 'best-ever fish and chips' since the late 1930s. You could pop in for just a pint of Cropton, but the excellent views of the harbour from the dining room, together with the prospect of fresh, sustainably fished seafood, could prove too much of a temptation. Just what to choose is the question? An exhaustive list of fish and seafood dishes is offered daily; perhaps opt for a traditional Whitby kipper; Whitby crab parcel; seafood St Jacques; or your choice of fish simply battered and served with chips. Desserts include locally made ice creams; sherry and marzipan fruit cake; and a knickerbocker glory.
