 Whitby is a charming fishing port on the East coast with a significant fishing fleet and fish market. There you will find several fishmongers offering a vast range of fresh fish and seafood from their own boats. The town is described as ’a big chippy’ and it is highly renowned by their crabs. It is said Whitby crabs are better quality than your average shellfish, offering a very sweet and juicy meat.

From 16th-19th June, Chris and Chrissie at The Brewers Arms have specially
created their own unique Whitby Crab Festival menu, using the freshest, finest sourced Whitby Crab.
