The restaurant on Pier Road is collaborating with Prosecco DOC to celebrate this "natural and surprising" partnership.

Stuart Fusco, of Quayside, said: "We are so excited about this brilliantly fun campaign for National Fish and Chips Day.

"Prosecco DOC is such a great accompaniment to fish and chips, and it really is a perfect way of celebrating our favourite day of the year."

The first 50 diners at Whitby's Quayside restaurant can enjoy a complimentary glass of Prosecco DOC with their fish and chips on May 27 2022.

Neil Phillips, wine expert and Prosecco DOC Ambassador in the UK, said: "Prosecco DOC works perfectly with Britain’s much-loved fish and chips.

"Its high acidity and the subtly sweet notes of Prosecco DOC Brut pairs beautifully with the delicate flavours of the fish.

"With the freshness and fruit character of the wine - as well as the fun of the occasion – it's a great pairing!”

The Fusco family has been serving fish and chips in Whitby since 1968.
