Whitby – Fish ‘n’ Chips and Daytrippers

On a sunny August Monday morning Laura and I motored down to Whitby in North Yorkshire. It was our first day trip out in many moons and

One of the reasons for the trip was to sample the famous Whitby Fish ‘n’ Chips and what better place to try it than at the Quayside Fish and Chip Shop.
Whitby, North Yorkshire
It won the national award for best fish and chip shop of the year in 2015.

We had arrived early in Whitby so it was almost a Fish and Chip brunch that we ordered. Eating Fish and Chips at 11.30am was rather odd, but having spent some time in South East Asia it was not the earliest strange meal of the day, that we have ever had.
Whitby, North YorkshireWe enjoyed our Cod and Chips just across the road from Quayside. Sitting on a concrete bollard type thing. Proper British holiday style of alfreco dinning.
I’m always dubious about ‘Award Winning’ but I can say hand on heart that it was great. Really ferm well cooked fish in the best batter I’ve ever had that was not homemade.
