Clean spacious and comfortable dining area. Swift efficient and friendly service. Superb fish & chips. We both had the regular size cod and chips it arrived quickly and was cooked perfectly. Generous portions too. Can't fault the place at all if you don't visit this place you are missing out.

Very hot and not too greasy. Restaurant... More

After visiting Trenchers for the first time on new year's Eve 2016/17 and having superb fish and chips, my partner and i thought we'd found our new go to fish and chip restaurant. The second visit we paid in late January was looking promising until the last mouthful of cod had 2 large bones inside. The latest visit on 18/2/17,... More

Regulars to Whitby and now regulars to Trenchers. Great food, service and a decent pint of Golden Pippin. Kids menu is good too.
