Never visit Whitby without going here. Fish and Chips at it's best. Haven't had the pleasure of dining in yet but I'm looking to in the future. Always enjoyed the food there and never had a problem with it. Highly recommend.

The Magpie is a very well known place and is a legend. It is the best place to get quality seafood bar non. You have to go if you are in town.

The steps were up to the restaurant which was closed due to the fire. Not sure if that's reopened yet. The takeaway section is on pavement level.
