Reviewed 21 February 2018 via mobile

The kippers are famous in whitby,but seem to be a bit of a secret to everyone else. The building is really special (and you feel like you are back in time).I bought two pairs and they were truely delicious. I cannot wait to go back and try the salmon,but the smell of the kippers cooking was to die for.

This place is worth seeking out just to see the building the kippers are smoked and sold from.
It is tucked away on a narrow street with fisherman's cottages. Mostly now made into holiday accommodation.
It really is a step back in time.

Been to whitby a few times before I even knew about this place. The last time it was closed but this time I manged to buy. I bought a pair of kippers, some kipper pate and some bacon, which is sold in cafes around whitby. The kippers were very nice. Yet to try the bacon.

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.
