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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We look forward to eating here every time we visit our holiday cottage in Fylingthorpe. It's always consistently good and gluten-free being well catered for. Sunday lunches are the best we've had. It's also very dog friendly (although we tend to leave our dogs at...the cottage, it's still nice to see dogs being welcomed) always friendy and welcoming.More

Superb birthday lunch. Lovely interior with hare & hound themed paintings & ornaments, very friendly staff & gorgeous lunch (steak & ale pie, beef wellington & chicken parmo all highly recommended). Well worth a visit.

Difficult to put into words really. We're visiting family locally with friends and wanted to find a pub close to where we were staying. I know the area well and had visited the pub years ago with my Mum and Dad. WHAT a transformation from...all those years ago. A great atmosphere, REALLY friendly and welcoming staff and superb food. Perhaps a slightly limited choice on the evening menu and the pricing reflects the quality of the food. We had our evening meal here nearly every night of our week's stay and also a family reunion lunch. BUT, for me, the biggest feather in their cap is how welcoming they are to dog's. I have Great Danes and the team went out of their way to accept and accommodate them in a fairly limited space. If I was having to date them it would be a very easy 9.5😄More

A lovely and genuinely, warm welcome from the landlord. Great, family friendly pub, with super warm wood burners. Excellent selection of drinks, food was delicious, 4 of us with 4 different mains, which we all thoroughly enjoyed. We were staying for a few days locally...and look forward to our return. Wish we had a pub like this at home!More

Lovely food, great ambience plus they couldn’t do enough for a severe allergy sufferer like me. The waiting staff were delightful and nothing was too much trouble. I had salmon with rice and broccoli and my daughter had two delicious starters and cheesy chips. All...cooked from scratch so we could have everything done how we wanted. I felt very safe as I’m usually worried they’ll give me something I’m allergic to in restaurants. Not so here, they were professional and careful. Recommend the food to anyone and we will be back.More

I came with 5 of my family for Sunday Lunch and we all agreed it was absolutely delicious. We ordered the Roast Pork, Turkey and a Pie; all of which came with beautifully cooked vegetables. I had the Turkey and it tasted like the best...home-cooked roast without having to lift a finger (except to raise a glass or two!). I had a Mars Bar Cheesecake for pud, while others had Apple Crumble and Custard and a Chocolate Brownie - all of which were delicious. Service was great and really friendly.More

Stopped by for a birthday lunch while walking part of the Cinder Trail from Whitby. Amongst other things, we had the famous steak, mushroom and ale pie, the hot beef sandwich and fish finger sandwich - all delicious. Easily the best food we’ve had in...quite a while.More

What a fabulous find, a great traditional country pub, the food was amazing, freshly cooked at a great price. I had the steak ale and mushroom pie, it was amazing. All 5 of us thought the food was fresh, of good quality, presented well and...served with a smile. Definitely a further visit will be on the cards when we are in whitby next time.More
