The Ellerby is open from 12 noon until 9pm every day. Our fayre is mainly standard traditional food done really well. Our steak pie, in particular, is a customer favourite and definitely worth trying. We have a lovely setting, provide great service, make good food and have a friendly team, all of which make The Ellerby a lovely place to have a lazy lunch or relaxing dinner. We have a 55 seater restaurant and are able to cater for large parties and special family occasions. We have daily specials and we also have a separate children's menu as well as a vegan and coeliac menu. We are especially busy on a Sunday and booking ahead is advisable.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is our fourth stay here in the last 16 months and it just gets better and better. The owners and staff are so welcoming and made all of us feel so special throughout, especially our dog Milo 😁 who is always treated like royalty....We have visited many hotels in the whole of Yorkshire and have to say this is our favourite and already booked in for our next stay and visit to the restaurant for our birthdays. If you are thinking of visiting this gorgeous area of Yorkshire then Ellerby is a must stay/visit.More

Lovely stay. Immaculate and cosy rooms with lovely touches such as Elemis products, and water and milk in the fridge every day.. Lovely shower and a very comfy bed. The staff are so friendly and welcoming and the food is delicious. Very dog friendly too....I would highly recommend the Ellerby.More

The Ellerby @Ellerby Gorgeous country pub with really friendly staff. We were driving on the main road and followed the local sign "Homemade Pub Food All Day". Free Wifi with easy access. This pretty pub (and Inn with 10 rooms) was recently taken over by...a local lady who worked way back here when she was 15/16 years old. We were impressed by the fresh food and homemade battered Whitby scampi (which was fresh and lovely). Spectacular smoked haddock chowder which I had to try. And a very good menu suitable for families and a special menu for vegetarians and gluten-free options as well. Toilets are new and immaculately clean. The biggest plus point for us was that it is dog friendly. We could eat in the large bar area with the open fire with the dog. There was another large restaurant area for people without dogs. They brought out a dog water bowl and even sausages chopped up for her! Home-made food served all day long and a carpark over the road. Oh, and there are 10 ensuite rooms which are dog friendly as well. So, I think we're going to be coming back here. Nice walks locally and a short drive to Runswick Bay, which is a lovely beach with rock pools, car park and a cute cafe.More

What a lovely little find. Beautiful place in lovely surroundings. Not far from Whitby. We had room 6 on the ground floor. This room is disabled friendly with a bath and shower in a wet room with his and hers sinks and complimentary toiletries, nice...addition of flannels with the towels. Queen bed in a large room overlooking the road through the village. Secondary double glazing keeping traffic noice down to a minimum as bus stops right outside. Two comfy chairs and tea making facilities with a fridge with free milk and water . Large tv with sky tv. We loved the room but the bed is as hard as rock and slopes at either side. For the quality of the room maybe look at investing in new bed. Bedding lovely. Outside our room was a communal conservatory for staying guests with Chesterfield sofas with a large tv with free sky channels. The conservatory looked out on to the garden with outdoor seating in beautiful surroundings, leading to a private carpark, free of charge, plenty of parking across the front of the hotel in addition. Dog friendly for those that chose to bring pets. I have allergies so not my personal choice but owners dog was lovely and is kept out of the restaurant and lays in the bar. Didn't fuss around people but was friendly if you wanted to stroke it, my fella did but I have to keep my distance but he was cute 😊 would we stay again? definitely !! We had our evening meal in the restaurant, food and service excellent, food not cheap but neither was the quality and presentation of the food. The 3 fish crepes where delicious. Good variety on the menu and decent portion size. Nice bar with very welcoming friendly staff throughout our stay. We had breakfast included and again couldn't fault food or service.More

Just come back from having a lovely lunch. The bar man was lovely said we could either sit in the bar or restaurant. We opted for the restaurant. Husband had steak pie it was full of meat plenty of gravy and veg and not a...pea in site as you get in a lot of pubs. I had the mixed fish crepe. Delicious. Piping hot which again is something you very rarely get now. If you are passing that way pop in you will not be disappointed. You can also take your dog in the bar area. Enjoy.More

We brought our residents from the local care home here in may, they enjoyed it that much they all asked to come back again today. The staff could not be more accommodating if they tried and friendly, nothing was to much trouble and again today...was the same, the food was amazing even the small portions were huge, they made each of our residents feel at home and really did look after us all. The facilities were also disabled friendly with easy access to the lovely garden for some of our wheelchair users. We have already booked in for our Christmas Meal and look forward to it.More

Staying local to Staithes we wanted to find somewhere nice to eat on the afternoon of our anniversary. The Ellerby was recommended to us so we gave it a try, and we weren't disappointed . The village of Ellerby is beautiful. The Ellerby itself has...the prettiest garden to sit in, although inside was just as nice we decided to eat outdoors. I ordered the crab salad, oh my days it was just perfection! Such a great portion and so very tasty. My Husband had the steak pie which he also really enjoyed. Staff were lovely too, great service.More

This place is slightly of the main road between Lythe and Hinderwell, but is well worth the visit. Our first and second visits on the same weekend break, and it really didn't disappoint. We had the traditional pub fayre the first time - Lasagne, Steak...Pie, Chicken curry, all well presented and tasted great (chips could have done with a little more browning). Our second visit was for fish and chips and was a really nice portion. The outside area is worth a mention as it is a nice enclosed garden with plenty of plant growth (including apple and grapes growing), and on a good night is a pleasure to sit in. We will definitely be visiting this place again, and will recommend it to friends.More

Fabulous. No other word for our dining experience. We enjoyed a Sunday Roast (I had beef, my wife had lamb) and the food was superb. Ample, very tasty portions. Service was excellent. Staff friendly and welcoming but professional. We'd stopped by the previous afternoon to...book a table and were advised that as their Sunday Roast service usually ends by 5pm, there may not be many roast alternatives left at the time we wanted to eat but the lady who took our booking said she would make a note to the chef to reserve some meat for us so we would be guaranteed our roast at 5pm. Above and beyond!! We are staying in the area until Friday and will definitely visit again for our evening meal.More

I think this question must relate to the previous owners because dogs are now allowed in the comfortable and spacious bar area. In fact, this is probably the most dog-friendly pub I have ever visited.
