“Fabulous!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Hubby and I were in Whitby for our wedding anniversary weekend and just by chance popped in for a drink (or several!) on the Saturday night. Drinks very reasonably priced and comfortable surroundings. As we were leaving, we mentioned we would like to have dinner there the following night and I said I fanced steak. The landlord said he would get one in specially for me. On Sunday night, we returned, and when the barman realised who we were said yest, they had got steak in and we were shown upstairs to the restaurant - really cosy and quiet with a great view of the harbour. When we mentioned it was our wedding anniversary, we were told drinks were on the house. The food was great, the staff very friendly and I would certainly recommend this to anyone visiting Whitby.

“Yo Ho Ho !”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Popped in for liquid refreshment only.

Not disappointed. The main choice beers being from the Samuel Smiths Brewery in Tadcaster.
Settled for the Extra Stout at 4.30%. A good choice.

Seeing as it be a sailors retreat one had to finish with a flourish - of Rum ! White Rum.

The service was fine. The ambience was alright - methinks this be a place many a local calls theirs.

The décor was a little gloomy, but, neat enough. When selecting a seat - one near the main entrance alcove to the Public Bar be a good choice - the glass being clear not opaque - thereby offering views outside over the waterfront.

The 'gentlemen's retreat' was clean and roomy enough, but, the soap dispensers needed filling if only to do away with the soap bars and the hot air hand dryer needs some extra oomph !

Another establishment one will bear in mind when in town again.

“A little gem”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

Lovely food, cooked fresh to order, good portions and well presented. Beautiful harbour views. We always have a drink here when in Whitby , but this is the first time we have had a meal there. The restaurant is upstairs, so away from the bar areas. Nice and cosy ,just right for a quiet meal away from the usual hustle and bustle you normally find in Whitby on a weekend. We will be back.
