Location and contact

Abbey Wharf's restaurant comfortably seats over 250 guests, in our beautifully refurbished premises. As well as tables for groups of various sizes within our main seating area we also have room for diners who prefer something a little more 'al fresco'. With an extensive balcony overlooking the harbour and out towards Whitby's famous East and West Piers, Abbey Wharf is a wonderful location from which to watch the world go by. Upstairs, our mezzanine level with its own bar serves as overflow from the main restaurant, as well as providing a space which can be hired for private parties and functions, giving an added level of privacy. The Abbey Wharf Bar is stocked with all that you would expect

We called in last week with our dog for fish and chips. The food was delicious and the portions good. The Abbey is a stylish modern venue overlooking the harbour. It is a relaxing and welcoming venue. Highly recommended

I would certainly book if I was you. The venue is large and will cater for you but like a few of the other reviews have said Whitby is usually quite busy!
