I always make sure that I visit this wonderful smoke house where one can buy kippers, haddock and other smoked items that are done on the premises. I do recommend the high quality produce. I just wish the owner could be even slightly engaging and...More

Previous reviewers have said it all. These are the best kippers I have eaten in the past forty years. If you liked smoked fish and are near Whitby, you would be mad not to buy some here.

We called at Fortune's Smokehouse for Smoked Haddock, Kippers & Bacon, last Items before we left for home in Halifax, believe me you can forget all the supermarket smoked ?? fish etc. fresh from the Smokehouse is best. No Comparison.

Anyone who appreciates a good kipper will love a visit to this historic smokehouse in Whitby. Having just eaten mine for a Sunday breakfast, I can vouch for the succulent texture and great taste. Excellent old business still trading in a time honoured fashion.

Would never visit Whitby and not come home without a bag full of kippers for friends and family. The ideal breakfast.
