After seeing queues out of the door on Friday night, myself and my boyfriend decided to try this place on the Saturday night and I wish we hadn't. First of all, we waited a good 15 minutes to be seated, despite being the only ones in the queue and seeing many, many people leave in that time. Then when we... More

Visited the first weekend of February. We had phoned ahead to reserve a table as it was my wife's birthday. On arrival we were seated straight away. Service was friendly and prompt. Had to ask the waitress to give us extra time as the menu is so big!! Food was delivered efficiently once we had ordered and was enjoyed by... More

Now this is how to do fish and chips!!! Still thinking about how good this meal was, we should have known people have raved about The Magpie for years but we never fancied it, boy have we been missing out. This was without doubt the finest fish and chips we have eaten and it certainly puts our local to shame.... More

Tasty fish and chips and large portions. My fish was not piping hot whereas my wife's was. The restaurant is very popular and we had to queue for about 5 mins to get in. Overall a good meal, but perhaps a little pricey compared to other fish and chip restaurants. Service was good.

Visited late afternoon and missed the queues. As usual excellent fish and chips with mushy peas, bread and butter and a pot of tea. We had the cod which was so fresh and the batter was perfect. Friendly service. Great way to finish our trip to the seaside!

We queued for a short while but the weather was good so not too bad. We were given a good table on the fort floor with lovely views over Whitby harbour. Our drinks arrived fairly quickly and the food not long afterwards. It was delicious as usual and very hot. Altogether a very enjoyable Saturday lunch

Ate in on a Friday night, and had the haddock and chips. Fish was very well cooked, and chips were tasty. Pricey as fish and chips goes, but worth it. At peak times there can be quite a wait. It is possible to book, but you have to do so many weeks in advance.
