We came across the Wheatsheaf by chance as had originally gone to Egton to eat in the other pub as it advertised itself as "dog friendly". Sadly, the stink of stale cooking fat that we could smell before we've even got through the door put us off, but I noticed that the Wheatsheaf was just a few steps down the road and looked far nicer. What a lovely pub! A nice welcome from the landlord, our dog was allowed in the bar with us which was beautifully decorated and full of locals which is always a good sign. A nice menu, neither cheap nor expensive, a very good house wine. We weren't rushed, we were made to feel welcome without being fawned over, it was the best meal we had in our week in the Whitby/Robin Hoods Bay area. Would definitely go back.

Don't Bother !

We booked this place 2 weeks in advance for a group of us. The table was booked for 8pm but they got this wrong and had us down for 9pm. We then waited 1hr 15mins for our starter !!. When some of our party complained, they were met with nothing short of disdain and certainly no apology. The food whilst nice, was nothing special. This is not a welcoming country pub and we felt we were an inconvenience. Give this place a miss, there are plenty of pubs in this area with great food and just as importantly lovely welcoming hosts !!, try the Postgate just down the road in Egton Bridge - wonderful !
