The Magpie Cafe

SquareMeal Review of The Magpie Cafe

A Whitby harbourside resident since 1940 or thereabouts, the Magpie is arguably the mother of all chippies. Families dote on the place, and devotees will remember when the owners provided umbrellas if the heavens opened; these days, an extension provides shelter from the storm – although the queues haven’t diminished. The main attraction is a wondrous array of fish procured from the local boats, although the kitchen casts its net well beyond battered classics such as cod and haddock. But that’s just the beginning: also expect a haul of daily specials (poached monkfish in creamy tarragon sauce), kids’ deals, veggie options and a few meaty staples – all served in trencherman Yorkshire helpings. For afters, take a look at the legendary 30-strong list of homemade desserts. To drink, a beer or a pot of tea generally does the trick.
