The past 17 years have flown by since "Whitehead's" opened. Mum and I have strived to build up a good following; serving only the finest quality Cod and Haddock from top quality suppliers and chips made with 100% British potatoes. From our original takeaway fish & chip counter service, we opened a small fish & chip cafe next door. Customers liked what we were serving and it seemed a natural step to open a purpose-designed restaurant where we could seat up to 70 people in comfort. The fish & chip restaurant and takeaway work well side by side and we are proud of our great team, who deliver a very high standard of customer service.

Hazel Whitehead is key to having established the reputation of Whitehead's, working alongside Geoff since opening Whitehead's doors at The Greenway, Hornsea. Though not so much on the front line these days, Hazel plays a vital supporting role.

Hazel's business experience includes running a bakery, followed by a fish & chip shop in Rotherham before opening the first shop in Hornsea. Fish is in the family blood, having fished from Bridlington and more recently, Geoff's brother fishing out of Hornsea. Little wonder the Whitehead reputation for fresh taste goes before them!
