When we paid the bill we were asked if the meal was fine/O.K. I replied `No`. I was just about to add it was excellent not O.K. The lady who was taking the payment... More

My husband and I enjoyed a two course meal at The Magpie, Whitby. In the summer they queue Dow the street but a sunny day in November did not have the masses although most tables were filled. The menu is huge including all types of local fish including "woof" which is actually catfish! We chose the two course offer and... More

We are used to queuing at the Magpie cafe but on a quiet, cold November Friday night we walked straight in. It was gloomy outside but warm and cheerful inside. The service was swift and efficient and the food cooked perfectly.
