Every day at sea should start with a hearty breakfast- and you’ll find no better in Whitby than that served at the Singing Kettle.
Situated on Angel Yard which is accessible from both Baxtergate and New Quay Road- Singing Kettle is a firm favourite with the port’s skippers, anglers and even tourists who regard it as a ‘hidden gem’.
Singing Kettle can also prepare packed lunches for your day at sea with great deals available when bought in conjunction with a full English breakfast.


Mr Chips is a family run takeaway and restaurant on Church Street that has customer satisfaction and a great service at its heart.
Operating as both a highly acclaimed takeaway and a licenced restaurant- Mr Chips has been the recipient of several awards, much praise and also seems to have a penchant for attracting visiting celebrities!

Malcolm (who runs Sea Spray charter fishing) and Paula are both around early mornings so help and advice is always on hand. Call in for a cuppa and a natter prior to sailing!
