Quick visit on a cold day. Walls adorned with old photos of Staithes. Nice place to spend time supping ale and admiring the views of the harbour. Welcoming staff. Highly recommended.

From the menu on their website it looks like you might be able to find something suitable. If not, just enjoy the atmosphere while you drink a beer!
