Good atmosphere, popular with locals and holidaymakers. Good menu. We ate in the bar - excellent starters, huge portions. We asked for our steaks medium but they came well done. Apart from that it was a very nice meal with lots of fresh vegetables. Pleasant, friendly waitresses. There's also a restaurant and lounge area both of which could do with an update, decor wise.

We ate here on 2 nights while visiting the area. The meals were very good and the staff were friendly and efficient. They also serve good cask beer and our dog was welcome in the bar.

The bar was a lot busier than when we visited last year but retained a friendly atmosphere with a mix of locals and visitors to the area

Had a great two night stay here this week. Very good location, close to other places of interest which are easily accessible by walking, driving or local bus. Booked a room for two with on suite. Decent accommodation that had everything needed. Was clean and well presented. Ate in the restauratant on both evenings and the food was excellent, as were the breakfasts.

Was disappointed. The menu had changed from last time I visited, not the same range of choices. It was overpriced for what we had. It looked like the place was being renovated but even so it seems to have lost a lot of its charm
+ atmosphere, which is a shame. The staff were friendly enough though.

Room Tip: I didn't stay, just visited for a meal.

Took my mum for dinner , too hot to cook. Lovely greeting on arrival ordered pint larger shandy for me and a large red wine n lemonade for mum took our drinks and choose what we fancied to eat there was a menu and specials board both had plenty of choice.
I asked for a prawn salad as it was to hot for cooked food and mum had a crap n prawn salad both were lovely and had a few new potatoes with them plates were cleared quickly when we had finished and the staff were fab, the only thing I was a bit disappointed with was the price £30.85 which I thought was a little high for two drinks and two salads

Sunday night in the Runswick Bay Hotel. We were told it was under new ownership so gave it a go. Still on going decorating but that's no problem. Had an excellent meal then in the bar for a few drinks, which was full of locals having a good night. We felt at ease and enjoyed the night. can not fault the staff, the landlord and the locals.will be going back soon. Been in other pubs locally but this one was best by far.

good place to stay on the walk. it is being redecorated but will take time. Nice friendly staff and owner, good beer, large hotel room.
breakfast was good, atmosphere was good, with a mix of locals and tourists. good to have a chat with some local people when visiting other parts of the country. one of the local blokes even went home and came back with some blister treatments for us!
only minor snag was asking for a rare steak and getting a very well done one - shame because it was a good steak. would definitely go again and expect that the redecoration will continue to improve the experience. keep up the good work!
