The Wetherby Whaler, Wetherby
We’ve all heard of it – but have you tried it? It definitely ranks highly in our fish and chip shop bucket list. Founded in Tadcaster in 1969, it original served the local community with takeaway fish and chips – since skyrocketing to nationwide fame because of the sheer quality of both the service and the produce. Now with five branches (including Wetherby, York, Wakefield, Guisely and Pudsey), it serves the finest fish and chips in Yorkshire. As tourists flock to Wetherby to try out these sensational fish and chips, we sit smugly knowing it’s only a trip down the A1 – and it’s so worth it! Enjoy a delicious open bag as you stroll along the river, overlooking the wharf and the Wetherby bandstand. Just perfect.
Seaview restaurant – Saltburn
The photo says it all. With such a stunning setting at its doorstep, who wouldn’t want to dine here? The Seaview Restaurant is a real gem, sitting on the Saltburn seafront. Diners can book a table in the stylish restaurant or on the upstairs terrace where you can soak up the spring sunshine with undisturbed views of the coastline – or if an open bag of chips on the beach is more your thing, take advantage of the just as delicious takeaway menu. Perfect for both a sit down meal and for dining sand-between-the-toes al fresco style.
