Did you know that the nations favourite  supper is the healthiest option over any other take away? An average portion of fish ‘n’ chips comes in at around 595 calories compared to a pizza which is 871!

The Magpie Cafe was originally built in 1750, as a Merchants House. It has always been associated with fishing and shipping, however it was not until 1939 when the building officially turned into a cafe.  It is located directly next to Whitby fish market. Every morning the fresh produce is collected from just across the road! People will queue out of the doors to get their hands on a portion of the mouth watering fish & chips. To this day The Magpie is considered one of the best in the business to many Yorkshire folk. We recommend paying a visit, but if you want to eat in then you may need to book in advance!


Harper’s Fish and Chips was created 12 years ago in the small village of Wetwang, with the ambition to create the best quality of Fish and Chips in the area. Harpers became so popular that there now are 10 branches spread across East and North Yorkshire. Attention to detail and quality is shown throughout their food, which makes it people’s first choice over other local Fish and Chip restaurants.  Harpers now also offers award winning gluten free fish and chips at their restaurant in Wetwang!


The Wetherby Whaler was created in 1969 as a traditional Fish and Chips takeaway serving the local community. Over the years the success of the Wetherby branch allowed them to expand gradually over time, and is now one of the most well know Fish & Chip restaurants around Yorkshire. All the produce is locally sourced to help maintain the high standard of food served on a daily basis.  There is nothing better than a fish supper after a long day at work, especially from the Wetherby Whaler!


It was all the way back in 1962 when the Skyliner seafood restaurant was born in Leeds. Now almost 50 years later they still produce the highest quality fish and chips so the locals can eat em straight out the bag! They pride themselves in only providing the best wild caught haddock and amazing quality produce in the area. The Skyliner holds the title of many folks ‘local’ and will continue to do so for many years to come.

And if you’re ever looking for a caterer for your big day The Fishermans Wife will be more than happy to serve up the finest fish & chips on the special occasion!
