“Great location, fab views, decent food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

We visited The Bay twice during a weeks stay in Ribin Hood's Bay, once for food and one the other occasion for just drinks. Both times The Bay was very busy probably due to the fantastic location. Food was typical pub grub-sandwiches, burgers etc and was very good particularly the chips. The only negative is that there was never enough bar staff on and the ones that were on need to learn how to smile! :)

“Enter at your own peril”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

Terrible terrible staff !! Please owners of this establishment listen !! We were what I can politely describe as ,glared & snarled at by a dark haired barman for asking if they were still serving food ( menu on pin board outside saying you were ) no excuse we were polite and he was very aggressive ! My friend myself and our 2 teenage girls left immediately upset by his behaviour . It was fortunate that our husbands were not around to witness this abuse . I will never cross the threshold of this place again . I have never thankfully had to write a review as bad as this before .

“Busy But Worth It”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

We ate & drank at this dog friendly bar / restaurant the first weekend in August on a very busy Saturday night. The weather was not too suitable for outdoor eating so everyone wanted to be inside. The wait for drinks at the very small bar was a little on the long side, but well worth the wait. For a very small bar there is a large selection of draught beers and lagers, along with the usual selection of spirits. We waited until a little later in the evening to order food when we had finally managed to secure a table. The four of us dining (plus one dog) ordered different meals from the menu and all of us were happy with the food. I ordered a 16 oz steak, medium rare which was cooked to perfection. The bar / restaurant is very busy during the summer season, but I would imagine it is very different during the winter months. The only downside is the price of the drinks which were a little on the expensive side, but as I said before the season is very limited to make this business viable.

Great food and perfect location for looking out across the ocean added bonus of dog friendly dining.

“Lovely pub”

Definitely worth a visit, but eat elsewhere! Brilliant view, good atmosphere, nice pint, a proper seaside pub. Fairly poor food though
