We had expected to find a choice of B & B's on the road between Whitby and Staithes but there were very few. We asked at one which was fully booked and the owner directed us to Runswick Bay as she said there were several there. We stopped at The Firs and although it was only 12.30 we were shown room 8 on the ground floor and there was no problem in leaving our luggage, making a cup of tea and then going out for the afternoon. We were told we could decide whether we wanted an evening meal when we got back but we didn't arrive back till about 5 and Mandy prefers to know earlier in the day - but we still got our choice from the 4 starters, 4 main courses plus about 5 desserts. The room was comfortable, the shower-room modern and clean, and it was nice to have a sofa to sit on rather than just the bed or an uncomfortable upright chair as in a lot of places. The food was well cooked and plentiful, and our only suggestion would be the option of a two course meal rather than the offered 3 courses at £25.50. The Firs is a good compromise between B & B in a private house and an expensive hotel, our B & B room rate was, I think, £84 per night.
