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.
At Abbey Wharf we pride ourselves on the excellent level of service and the quality of the food and drinks we serve. All our meals are cooked to order, by our trained chefs, ensuring our guests all enjoy a meal to remember.
Specialising in locally sourced fish and local meats, the Abbey Wharf Menu offers something for all tastes.
Our charcoal fired oven, Bertha, ensures we can deliver delicious food time after time, with that characteristic wood-fired taste.
The Abbey Wharf Bar is stocked with all that you would expect from a quality restaurant and bar.
With a traditional range of beers, wines and spirits, soft drinks and hot drinks available, Abbey Wharf caters for all tastes.
However, alongside the usual suspects, Abbey Wharf is pleased to specialise in an excellent choice of world beers and spirits.
Imported from around the globe, our wide choice of more unusual drinks ensures there's always something new and original to try.
Abbey Wharf is available to hire for events such as private parties, wedding receptions and group dining.
Guests are able to make use of our mezzanine level floor, above the main restaurant and bar. This area enjoys amazing views of Whitby Harbour through our recently renovated roof-lights, as well as its own private bar.

My sister and I had a lovely meal yesterday the food was fab and the service was excellent I can thoroughly recommend Abbey Wharf
Good food and service
More vegetarian options needed. Fabulous on everything else xx
Doing a great job in the circumstances food was fantastic and they were very accommodating! Thank you!
Fabulous place fantastic staff excellent food see you soon
Staff very friendly food was nice and it arrived quickly, it’s just a shame we couldn’t order food and drink all at the same time, we had to order at different counters, otherwise would haven given 5* Thankyou
Lovely meal thank you 😊
Covid precautions excellent. Couldn't scan the code for the menu but the waitress quickly brought us paper menus. The lady on the desk (think she was called Vicky? Shorr grey hair) taking food orders was lovely and very obliging when we asked for extra sauces. All in all a lovely evening for my Mum's birthday. And to be dog friendly too is a bonus as my boy goes everywhere with me . Would definitely recommend and will be back next time I'm in Whitby (next year) thank you
Not sure you are doing the right thing, every one else is doing table service!
I had really high hopes for your restaurant after viewing your menu online. I was a bit disappointed when I turned up and realised that the majority of your vegetarian dishes had been removed, but understand this is due to the current situation. The service was good and waiters were friendly. I was quite disappointed when my burger which I asked to come without mayo was covered in it. But the waiter apologised and said they would make me a fresh one, so I thought oh well no problem. 2 minutes later the same burger comes back on a different bun (pretty obvious it was the same patty as when you lifted it up the burger had mayo on the bottom). At this point I couldn’t really be bothered to argue but a little sad to see the lack of care to put a mistake right. Would be great to see some more adventurous vegan and veggie options too - I know you specialise in seafood so would be great to see a tofu/seaweed fish option or something a bit more exciting than just burger and chips. Overall the restaurant is beautiful and the food was enjoyable just would be great to see it made a bit more accessible for people who don’t eat fish or meat (or don’t like mayo).
Lovely fish and chips
Lovely atmosphere, lots of staff who attended to us when needed. Great view!
Hard-working staff coped well on a very busy evening.I liked it a lot,and would happily return if in Whitby again.
Excellent food would recommend to anyone visiting Whitby.
Only a temporary menu at the moment, i.e. main meal only, so detracted a little from the experience. However the food we did have was very good 👍👍
Love the building and open airy feel of it. Staff are always very helpful. The one way system seemed to work ok and we felt safe.
I booked a table for my wife's 50th birthday and we thought it wouldn't be as good a night as there wasn't enough staff ( due to covid)for table service but the staff made every effort to make a fuss of us and make her night special there was a limited menu running but we chose the homemade fish pie and we both thought it was fabulous and will be having it again real soon just like to say thank you to all the staff u all worked hard on the night and was really appreciated.
Lovely food and service was fantastic. Served by a young man with ginger hair (didnt get his name), apparently his mother also works there. He is a a credit to your restaurant very helpful and polite. Overall a pleasant dining experience.
