Regulars to Whitby and now regulars to Trenchers. Great food, service and a decent pint of Golden Pippin. Kids menu is good too.

A local taxi driver recommended this restaurant. So glad he did. Best Fish & chips I've ever had. Went at lunch time & was shown to a table straight away. Tables were laid beautifully with cups & saucers especially to hold a superb cup of Yorkshire tea. Spotlessly clean restaurant. The toilets are upstairs & they too are spotless. Very... More

A clean and comfortable fish and chip restaurant, excellent crispy battered cod and lovely chips - exactly what you hope for in a harbourside restaurant. Staff friendly and efficient.

Lots of debate as to which plaice is best 😜. Trenches was nice, the seafood salad excellent, but for me the fish and chips are not as good as Magpie. Just my opinion based on the fish and chips I had.

Haddock and chips with lovely crispy batter, a substantial fish pie , lots of pleasant staff, it's licensed so beer wine or tea with the meal is your choice. A very good experience.
