  • OMG - I am told that is modern speak for exceptionally good which a kipper from Fortunes is.... really is. If you like kippers you wont find better. Somewhat eclectic opening hours but worth it.
  • Lovely little cafe!!! Great food, relaxing warm atmosphere & very friendly staff.
  • Absolutely fantastic. What a history behind this place. It's not only some place, it's a destination. To be fair it should be a destination for every professional chef! You won't get that product anywhere on this planet!!!!
  • Best kippers in the world! My Grandparents Mr and Mrs Furness would make a special trip every year when I holidayed with them as a child, but their love of them started when they would stay in Whitby and my late father Jim would help the current owner when they were boys.
  • If you like kippers then this is the place. The smell as you walk towards the small shop is a delight, and lingers throughout the day. Expect traditional smoked kippers wrapped in newspaper, but try the bacon too. Don't be late though, once the shop has sold out it shuts.

Where to stay in Whitby

The majority of the town's lodging is near the small harbor at the town center. Consider a guest room in one of the historical buildings that line the water or on one of the narrow streets that branch off from the boardwalk. For views of the picturesque town and the cathedral, consider lodging inland and up the hill. Ask about themed rooms designed for the Whitby Gothic Weekend.
