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.

Good sized portions for a reasonable price. We were a group of 6 adults so booked in advance on bank holiday Monday (advisable). Food selection is good and catered for all of our needs.

Booked Sunday Lunch here for the four of us,was told straight away it was busy and their would be a bit of a wait. No probs, after a 45min wait our food arrived. Sunday roast of Lamb was lovely & generous portions But,our Gripe. A...table positioned next to the toilet entrance with a bar table opposite,as you can imagine it was like Piccadilly Circus at rush hour. No where enough room at all. No complaints about food or staff at all, but this area is not ideal for Eating..More

We had our food in the dining room, very pleasant and relaxing. I had the fish pie, very tasty, lots of fish and a great topping. Gammon was very good and the Cheese Burger, not so the Lasagna, too much cheese on the top and...not much pasta and meat, when we complained they advised that others had said this also. They did take the amount for the dish off the bill. The Chocolate Fudge Cake was lovely, plenty of sauce and great Ice-cream. We have eaten here before and not had any problem with the food. The Sunday Lunch is excellent and the Scampi We would eat here again. The staff are all great nothing is too much trouble, they are always pleasant and smiling.More

Lovely spot for a stay, just above the harbour so a short walk from plenty of cool sites including the Cleveland Way and English Coastal Path. Great rooms, good-sized and with a decent view. Food was high quality and great value: a cut above your...average pub grub but very reasonably priced and with a good range of veggie and vegan options. The only note I'd make about the vegan offer is that other than the veggie burger, there wasn't sufficient protein in the vegan meals to meet NHS guidance for adult nutrition. Could do with adding say a load more kidney beans to the chilli (at least 200g per person), some green beans and chopped roasted nuts to the Thai curry, and a couple more sausages or some vegan bacon to the vegan full English.More

Amazing home made Gluten free Steak and Ale Pie. Amanda has created a delicious pie, full of delicious steak, with tasty proper homemade gravy. There are other gluten free options available from the menu. 10/10 Phone ahead to make sure the pies are available.

Friendly service but sadly the food was very poor not sure if it was the chefs night off! Whitebait was very undercooked not crispy at all and tasted as though the oil was not fresh. Salmon over cooked as were the prawns

Lovely place to stay! We had a few days stay in the summer and would definitely return. Room was clean and comfortable, food was delicious. We managed to get a parking space onsite, but it was busy. The free WiFi is very poor though, I...can only assume that’s due to the people who come to the pub and are logging on. I hardly managed to make a connection in all the time we were there. Staff are lovely and friendly and the bonus of being able to take our dog was brilliant for us, as we came for the lovely coastal walks and somewhere nice to lay our weary heads..which is exactly what we got!More

Fabulous home cooked food. We both had the battered mushrooms and the steak pie and we couldn't fault them. The pie was amazing, absolutely packed with braising steak, the pastry was golden, the chips were proper chips and not frozen and the gravy was out...of this world. I'm only sorry I couldn't finish it. The portion sizes are huge! The staff were lovely and friendly.More

Visited twice in the last couple of months as we are weekly stay visitors each month nearby. Found the lady behind the bar on Sunday 26th November helpful and friendly lighting the bar fire and advising on the food and accommodation. Three meals at lunchtime...completed timely, well presented and well cooked specially my very large fish and chips cooked gluton free which was the best I’ve had in a long time.Muscles very nice but miss the tomatoe chilli muscles as a previous option Great location rather than tracking down into the village below. Easy parking and nice to see the locals visiting,real cliff top pub great views and nice atmosphere and dog friendly. Will be back.More

Great location. Nice hotel with basic facilities. Stayed one night with my sister. The rooms are very basic but functional. The location makes up for it. And the breakfast was lovely. You are paying for the location, not the room. Because the rooms are above...a pub, we were woken up by drunken guests shouting in the hallway around midnight. Apart from that it was ok.More

Hi I am not sure. If you message them on Facebook they normally reply quickly. I think food was served in the bar.
