Stopped off en route back to our hotel and 6 of us went in for an evening fish and chip supper. The restaurant was very busy and we were accommodated in a separate dining room.

Filthy place - dirty cups and grease on the cutlery. Extremely rude and blunt waitress (we sat on the right hand side behind the till) who started walking away as my wife was still ordering! The bread is cut into triangles so asked for it not to be cut and was told no - confused, I asked why and was... More

Come here regularly with my family as it's my grandparents favourite chippy and they love the senior menu. Never been dissapointed, great fish and chips, cracking service and the puddings are lovely too if you have room for one!

Wetherby Whaler cannot be beaten. They are by far the best Fish and Chips for miles. Beautiful white fish, lovely chips and excellent service. Although it was bank holiday Monday and very busy we only had to wait around 10 minutes to be seated. Can't wait to go again.
