“Short Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

We could not have been made to feel more at ease and relaxed. The owner has only taken over a year ago and really trying to build up its reputation . Good location as easy to get to most places. The chef was off on out visit as slightly out of season but Mark russled up some supper for us and we were very pleased and enjoyed it so much we had the same again the second night . Breakfast delicious .. Brill stay .

Delightful meal in a stunning establishment with a roaring open fire. All welcome, good ales, including GF option too!!

Landlord and lady very welcoming.

Can't wait to go to their Thursday night steak night, 2 steaks for £20.

Love their ethos which is good pub food using top quality local ingredients.

Oh and it's in the heart of the North Yorkshire Moors as well, what more do you need.

We had dinner last night in the bar with our two dogs, we were welcomed by the owner who couldn't have been more helpful. My daughter is vegan, and thought the menu was wonderful, and the food great. My husband and I also had a great meal in front of a lovely open fire, the owners are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble, we will be back.

Room Tip: We only had a meal, so can't comment on anything else.

After finding this place , to be honest not my first phone call , I must say that I could not have been happier . Stuck at short notice on Saturday night , I was made very welcome . I chatted to the new owners at length and found them good company . The last review said it all . Cosy ,clean & friendly , with great food & large portions. Also a nice pint of ale. I am passing again later in the year and have already ordered my room .

The Grapes Inn is about halfway between Whitby and Guisborough. It was only a 20-minute drive into Whitby so the location was very handy. The room had everything we could want for our brief stay, and the full english breakfast was excellent, with generous portions. The bar has a cosy, country feel to it, and the owner is very friendly and welcoming.
Overall, The Grapes is great value, and we would recommend it to anyone wanting a quick weekend away like us.

To start with, this is a Pub, not a five star hotel or a gourmet restaurant. And a good Pub at that, in a delightful old building overlooking Scaling Dam and the moors. The bar area has loads of atmosphere, staff are friendly, interested and helpful. I felt welcome on arrival, which was rather late after a difficult journey, and was happily served much needed drinks.
Yes, the room was small for a double but with that view from the window and the large area downstairs, how much bedroom space is needed? The bed was comfortable with cotton sheets and good pillows; the en-suite was small but perfectly adequate, clean and with plenty of hot water and lovely big bath towels. Breakfast was perfectly adequate and served to individual requirements. I was not there for a meal but it appears from the menu that plain, locally sourced food is served - a good pub menu.
Location and character is everything here - ten minutes drive from the coast and in the middle of wonderful walking country, quiet and relaxing. Not a plastic sanitised box - there are plenty of chain hotels if that is what you want. Sure there is renovation to be done, but in the meantime I would not hesitate to return when in the area.

Room Tip: Ask for the front if you want a fantastic view

If you are planning a trip to this area then forget this place. I note the excuse from earlier in the year that the owners had only recently taken over, well not a lot has changed. Its dirty, dark and coming apart at the seams. It has the feel of an unloved old boot. The front area is full of weeds. The room leading to the corridor to rooms smells badly of damp. Whilst the bed was clean, and has to be said comfortable, the room was barely big enough to swing a cat and the shower quite simply awful. Like trying to wash in drizzle. Sleep was interrupted on numerous occasions during the night due to macerator toilets being used in other rooms, yes you can hear them every time regardless of room. Also a louder motor cranked up until at fever pitch a number of times. So loud the room vibrated.
Room also full of spiders and cobwebs so don't stay here if you are Arachnophobic.

We left a homemade salad in a sealed container in the guest fridge in the corridor only to find it gone the next morning. When we quizzed the owner he claimed to have put it in his own fridge for safe keeping. He supposedly went off to retrieve it only to return 5 minutes later with an empty container saying it had been thrown out, downright bizarre!! He did reimburse 10 pounds but still very strange behavior.
At breakfast he apologised for the lack of real coffee explaining that his coffee roaster in DEVON had gone on holiday without telling him. Coffee instead was from a Nescafe mound on a plate on the bar and a pot of boiling water. Breakfast was mediocre under-cooked bacon and sausage that tasted like sandy breadcrumbs.
Given that we booked this place based to some extent on previous reviews on this site i am concerned as to the authenticity of said reviews. I travel constantly and can honestly say this is the worst places i have stayed in a long number of years. They need to call in Gordon Ramsey!!!

Room Tip: don't bother
