“A Whitby tradition”
Review of Fortune's Kippers

Fortune's Kippers
Ranked #2 of 28 Shopping in Whitby

Reviewed 29 December 2017 via mobile

Whitby is such an interesting place. If you’re travelling from the South it’s perhaps not the easiest place to find. But if you do make the effort make sure you take a moment to buy some kippers or smoked salmon from Fortunes. We always make it our business to walk up the tiny lane to the old smoke house that feels like it has been there for ever, and to receive a gruff Yorkshire welcome as we make our purchase. If you’re lucky you might catch a glimpse behind the red wooden doors where they smoke the fish at the back.

The staff were personable and helpful. Having never had kippers and staying just next door, we knew we needed to have this experience. The smoked kipper pate was great on crackers.

We have bought from the smokehouse many times over the years and always managed to let the attitude of the miserable sods that run it go over our heads . But when you buy stuff that is sub standard you tend not to repeat the exercise . We called in last week and bought 2 pairs of their most expensive kippers , they were awful , dry things that bore no resemblance to anything we have bought there before , really tasteless and after the bones were removed there was were little meat left . I really think it's time they packed in.

Excellent kippers at a very reasonable price, all smoked on the premises. Nothing better than walking down to the shop, picking up a large kipper and walking back to cook it for breakfast!

A small artisan smoke house producing excellent kippers. They sell several sizes and I love the large ones.
