“A great place to stay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2013

Set in a charming village location this rural Inn combines old-fashioned character with the best of modern facilities. Rooms were very good and the food was excellent. The full English breakfast was as good as it gets, quality ingredients cooked to perfection. My only small gripe concerned the lack of fruit and yoghurt to go with the cereals. We enjoyed their evening meal which was good value though the price of drinks at the bar was a bit steep.
We stayed 3 nights for the price of 2 booked through Laterooms; good value but I'm not sure that it would have been without the "free" night.

Look forward to my next visit.

We stayed here as a surprise for our grand kids. Jill was the perfect host, nothing was any trouble. They have simply got the ethos of good customer service
The rooms great, spacious and with complimentary toiletries, tea and coffee facilities
The food in the resturant was first class as was the beer
I would highly recommend this B&B and will most certainly use it again

We really enjoyed our stay here, very friendly, clean and well decorated rooms. Recently renovated and looking lovely. Tasty food too, good (not /too/ tricky) quiz on a Tues. Family who run it were Happy to help however they could.

We chose The Forge from Late Rooms as it had a special offer on and we are so glad we did!! We are regular visitors to Whitby and normally stay in the town but from now on this lovely country pub will be our choice. From the moment we arrived we were made so welcome and nothing ,absolutly nothing was too much trouble for Beth,Jill , Phil and their delightful staff. We stayed in the Cottage room and loved it, it was so cozy. Breakfasts are fresh,locally sourced products are used and it is beautifully presented. They offer a traditional cooked English breakfast but will make you an alternate if you prefer, you just have to ask! We also had their Sunday roast and couldn't fault that either, they serve it all day if you are lucky enough to be there on a Sunday! After three nights there we felt like members of a big extended family and we were all sad to say Goodbye!! They deserve huge success with their new venture and we wish them all the luck in the world. We will be recommending it to all our family and friends and can only say go try it, you won't be disappointed!!

This newly renovated pub has got it spot on. The rooms are beautifully decorated with very comfortable beds and great bathrooms. My English breakfast was the best I have had in a long long time. The pub was packed on Sunday for lunch which all looked very good. The pint of Guzzler was excellent. Jilly was a perfect host and I enjoyed a great night in a stunning part of England.

What more could you ask for!
One of the best Sunday lunches in the area in a beautiful Yorkshire village! The portions and quality of the meat are mind blowing and they serve a good pint of ale!
They even give the little one's a free child's portion!
We shall be regular visitors
