Meet our Sponsors, Wetherby whaler

Wetherby Whaler sponsors Sporting Achievement of the Year 2018

For over 40 years it has been our privilege to serve you, our customers, with the finest fish & chips in Yorkshire.

The Wetherby Whaler is a family owned chain of fish and chip restaurants and takeaways. The business was founded by Phillip and Janine Murphy in Tadcaster in 1969. Originally a traditional fish and chip takeaway serving the local community, it was here that we learnt our trade and developed our skills and knowledge that enabled us to prosper.

In 1989 the opportunity arose to purchase our first Wetherby Whaler in Wetherby. Our first Whaler had a takeaway with a small café on the first floor, and the café represented an opportunity to develop our ambitions to provide a full service restaurant business.

We now employ 220 full and part time staff at our 5 branches serving about 750,000 portions of haddock in our restaurant and takeaways per year.

Throughout our growth and expansion we have remained a family business, and our two daughters are now an integral part of the day to day running of our organisation ensuring that the future is in good hands. Joanne and Caroline continue the proud traditions and principles of the Wetherby Whaler Experience, with a loyal team of management and employees who are equally dedicated to delivering the finest value fish and chips in Yorkshire.

Proud to sponsor The Yorkshire Choice Awards
