“Delicious and couldn’t fault a thing.”

Fish and chips from here are most definitely the business. Delicious and couldn’t fault a thing. Do try – you won’t be disappointed.

“Fantastic food at reasonable money.”

Simply can’t fault it. Four of us decided to try royal fisheries and we will definitely be back. Many thanks to the staff who prepared our food and served it to the table.

“The best fish and chips…ever!”

Whitby is THE place to get fish and chips and this restaurant is the best! Crispy batter, flaky white cod….and even crinkle cut chips (taking me back to my childhood!). The staff were friendly and it’s within easy reach of the harbour. Highly recommended!

“Fish and chips”

The best in Whitby, Staff the best i have come across in a long time, extremely helpful even when busy

(Trip Advisor May 16)


Probably the best fish and chips I’ve ever had! The portions are huge so make sure you’re very hungry. Most importantly though, the food is cooked to perfection. The batter on the fish is light, thin and very crispy, the chips are crinkle cut and the peas are mushed properly. Yum! ?
