About Abbey Wharf
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.
We enjoyed a beautiful meal in what we believe to be the BEST seafood restaurant in Whitby! We have eaten here several times before and will definitely be back!
Great service and beautiful food
Fabulous location, Lovely views with a great selection of Drinks. Food as always was great
Just a perfect place to be when the sun is shining...
Lovely scallops and mussels
Had a beautiful meal thankyou :-)
Food is plentiful and gorgeous. The staff are young but professional and handle the situations well with guests who have a few too many. They are very patient . Love it there and we will return
Very good food. Quite quiet which affected atmosphere. Had to ask staff to clear table for desserts. Ordered ice cream for dessert which arrived incorrectly. Despite this, a really good night overall. Great food.
We were made to feel very welcome along with our 2 dogs and water was provided for them. The menu was varied and coped with our group of 2 meat eaters , a vegetarian and a vegan. The food was delicious and the vegan wine - Tall Horse Shiraz was yummy. We’d definitely come again. Thanks
Lovely food. Excellent location.
Understaffed. Which resulted in very slow service. Soggy chips. Asked for the bill. It never arrived after 10 minutes of waiting. So left money on the table. No one acknowledged us when we left.
I think "disappointed" would be the best way to sum up our meal here. The location and setting are great but we felt let down by poor service and some average dishes. We were left with our starter plates finished for around 20 minutes. Eventually we alerted a member of staff we were done and they finally took them away. We then had to wait again as this meant they would "now start on our mains". A couple next to us that came in after had finished their 2 courses before we got our main. The calamari starter was a let down. Far too much batter. It looked and tasted more like onion rings. The seafood paella was also bland. I did enjoy the monkfish main. We heard complaints from 2 other nearby tables about the service and some other issues such as an incorrect wine on the bill and a main course being cooked before a starter. It's a shame as this place has all the foundations to be great. Get the service right and I'd recommend it to others. As things stand, I won't be going back.
The Maitre'd needs to be a bit warmer with her welcome. A smile would not go amiss. The waiter was very eager to please and couldn't do enough for us. The food was great and the drinks were very good. The bar staff were excellent. Would definitely come back.
Waited for drinks for a while
Fabulous food and fantastic staff. Definitely not to be missed!
Great location in the middle of everything.
I really enjoyed my time here, the food was so nice, having pre ordered because of a large party booking worked well and waiting time was at a minimum even through the restaurant was busy. the service was great, the staff were friendly, polite and swift. Definitely recommend and will come again when I’m back in Whitby.
Our waiters were friendly and attentive (especially the young man who served us - didn’t catch his name, but he made us laugh). Food was delicious, views over Whitby were fantastic. Would definitely recommend for an evening out in Whitby !
Loved this place, 1st time visiting and it was a fab experience. Food was truly delicious, service and venue was exceptional. Have already booked for when we visit Whitby later this year.
The food was beaut and we couldn’t fault it
Food was cooked to perfection, staff were very professional and attentive, highly recommend to all.
We waited over 1 hour to get food after ordering. As it was my son’s birthday treat and I had put that in my reservation I had hope the restaurant would have arranged something (the restaurant on the previous night gave him some ice cream and sang happy birthday). For the price and poor service, we will not go there again.
