My daughter and myself noticed this restaurant while taking the open top bus tour and thought we'd give it a try after the novelty of fish and chips wore off. In walking in, the room was full of war time memorabilia and a menu of (a range of pies), mash and peas or bangers and mash. We sat down and the man took our order and within minutes the meal was in front of us on wartime style ration tin plates and tea in a proper mug!!
My daughter (aged 10) loved it as she'd enjoyed learning about WW2 in school and as a teacher myself, I wish I could take my class to a similar restaurant. It was the first time during the week that my daughter (who can be a fussy eater) ate all her dinner and she said the sausages in the bangers and mash were the best she'd ever had!! The owners of the shop were highly courteous with a fantastic sense of humour and the broad Yorkshire accent added to my experience (don't hear that accent too much in Derbyshire!!)
Our meal consisted of:
Steak and Stout pie (gorgeous!!), mash, peas, gravy
Children's bangers and mash
Ice cream with chocolate sauce (also in tin ration bowl)
Tin of Fanta
Mug of tea
and came to a very good price of just over £12
The only downside, I could point out is that the restaurant is very small (about 8 tables) but in a way, it adds to the experience and my regret is that we visited on the last day of our holiday. This quaint little restaurant will be our first point of call on next summer's visit to Whitby and I can highly and unreservedly recommend this place to all. Well done to the owners for offering something different!!
