More about The Magpie Cafe

A visit to The Magpie Café is a ‘really must do’ when visiting Whitby. The Magpie Café is well known throughout Yorkshire (and beyond) to be one of the finest fish restaurants the area has to offer.

Whatever the weather and season, the very large daily queues weaving down the Café’s steps and on the street is testimony to its high quality of fish dishes and excellent customer service.

Located on Pier Road, overlooking Whitby Harbour and housed in a distinctive black and white building, you can enjoy fabulous views of Whitby whilst tucking in to the finest of fresh fish and much more. Specialities include a great selection of dishes that include prime, fresh Whitby fish and a great range of other seafoods too.

On the menu you’ll find not only excellent fish and chips, but an exciting selection of fish and meat dishes to try.

Gift Vouchers (various prices), cook books (with foreword from TV Chef Brian Turner) and the Magpie Teddy Bear are all available on The Magpie’s online shop.
