Hi

I'm heading up to The Whitby\Scarborough area in a couple of weeks and could do with a few recommendations of decent places to eat. I'm open to all types of food and cost isn't much of an issue.

Cheers

Cafe Fish in Scarborough.

A seafood place, as the name suggests. I'm not a seafood fan, but Mrs _S and my stepdaughter enjoyed the seafood. I had a steak and it was really good. We'll be going back again.

Yes, the Magpie in Whitby is brilliant for fish. You might have to queue, but its well worth it. There's a reason people do queue to get in.

Whiby Magpie for Fish & Chips superb

i don't think it is that good anymore; its living off its reputation unless they have changed recently. i was very disappointed with this place when i went last year i had better from the takeaways across the bridge.

Scarborough good food? - lol :D:p

i lived up there for 5 years and never could be bothered to queue up for the Magpie in Whitby :(

to be honest most of the fish and chip places in whitby are good

I prefer trenchers..its big and queues rarely form (unless James Martin has just mentioned it again on the tv)

Try the Green Room in Scarborough. English food, fairly sure the chef tries to source all local produce.

Not had a bad experience in maybe 6 trips.

They're really not IMO (I work in Whitby). Best takeaway is riverside (further round the harbour opposite the boat yard, only lunchtime during the week is Friday though) but even that can be hit or miss. Magpie and trenchers are both alright but you'll pay for it, magpie is better IMO. Mr Chips despite being clarksons choice is expensive and not much cop in my experience. A lot of the rest are pretty dire, much better in Saltburn on the front near the pier. Have a look on trip advisor though, there's a couple of other places than just fish and chips in Whitby that get good reviews and there's a lot of pubs in the area.

Thanks for the suggestions all. I'm expecting to eat plenty of fish and chips and seafood. Are there any decent Indian restaurants anyone could recommend?

I went to The Marine the last time I was in Whitby and the fish and chips was wonderful. Although I can't compare it to any of the other options.

EDIT: Just noticed how old this thread was.
