From the sea to the land and from the kitchen to your plate, the talented kitchen team at Alberts Eatery know just how to make the best of local produce and the fresh fish which lands just a seashell’s throw away.
What’s the draw?
Fine food and fossils. It’s an unusual combination but one that sits nicely on the menu at Albert’s Eatery where the twin pleasures of nostalgia and convivial dining go side by side. Albert’s Eatery lies within the Museum of Whitby Jet in Wesley Hall, a former Methodist chapel in the heart of old Whitby. It’s packed full of character thanks to the striking features such as the original Victorian tiles. A vaulted ceilings and stained glass windows add to the sense of history, making it an unusual and fascinating place to sit and enjoy a very modern-day breakfast, lunch or dinner.
What’s to eat?
Few things are better than seafood at the seaside and with Albert’s being in such a prime location, seafood is our speciality. We care passionately about our delicious fresh fish dishes, offering fish which has been locally caught and prepared wherever possible from local quality suppliers. Our menu is ideal for all. You can go for a seafood blow out, sample daily specials featuring freshly caught fish from the boats or just go easy with the very real and simple pleasure of a Whitby crab sandwich. For lovers of seafood, we highly recommend our delicious seafood chowder or fresh Whitby lobster. We also have a range of alternative meat dishes plus vegetarian and vegan options too.

A Royal Celebration at Albert’s Eatery
Marking a double celebration of Queen Victoria’s 200th birthday and the grand official opening of W Hamond’s Museum of Whitby Jet on Church Street, guests were invited to Wesley Hall on Friday 24th May 2019 to enjoy a champagne reception and an evening of musical and social merriment.
With the rejuvenated building looking resplendent, both inside and out, it was only fitting to see those who attended being greeted by ladies in period costume and being able to mingle with a special guest as Queen Victoria herself made an appearance.
Despite two centuries of royal duties, Her Majesty looked remarkably fresh and was more than happy to put herself in front of the abundance of phone camera and press photographers keen for a chance to take their own birthday souvenir pictures.
