Duke of York:

Without doubt the place I enjoy most for lunch is The "Duke of York", which is situated at the bottom of the 199 steps. It serves Fine Ales including Black Sheep. The view over the harbour and out to sea gives a feeling of total relaxation, especially if you visit during the Winter months, when its not so busy. Try sitting in the dining area next to the open fire and you will find that the excellent choice of meals and the fine ale will ensure your return. The staff are friendly and so are the locals, whom I am sure you will spot quite easily!

Board Inn:

The "Board" which is next door to the "Duke" serves an excellent pint of hand drawn John Smiths. If you walk straight ahead as you enter and go down the stairs you will find a very pleasant although perhaps basic restaurant. Its ideal for feeding the kids whilst mum and dad get an excellent value for money meal and enjoy a drink. The view over the Harbour is superb and most tables are next to the picture windows.

The Station Inn:

Situated on New Quay Road, and having recently been refurbished its one of the most attractive pubs in Whitby.The new Landlord serves an excellent selection of quality ales and good food at reasonable prices. It has one large room and two smaller rooms.




The Shambles:

Only recently completed and is located on the top floor of what used to be Burberry's factory in the Market Place. It has a wonderful modern atmosphere and the food is excellent, as is the range of beers offered. There are patio windows giving access to the balcony, on which you can relax and take in the comings and goings of the harbour.

The Dolphin:

Situated on the East side, adjacent to the swing bridge, its nice to sit outside with a pint of Tetley's and spend an hour watching the world go by. Inside its even better sat in the bay window overlooking the upper harbour having lunch. In the evening this is a young persons venue, but during the day its a nice place to have a look at the town centre, whilst relaxing, having a beer and eating some good traditional food.

The lounge bar provides traditional bar meals and a range of daily specials. All meals are prepared using fresh local produce and with a little prior notice they are happy to cater for special requests. The bar is well stocked, serving a good selection of beers, wines and spirits. In the winter a log fire enhances the already pleasant atmosphere .

Raven Hall Hotel: Ravenscar

There are some places that make you feel as if you belong there. Raven Hall is one of them. The food is good, the service is good, the beer is good and its just a few miles from Whitby. The hotel grounds are surrounded by Battlements, with various levels to visit and the view out to sea and across Robin Hoods Bay is magnificent.

The Cozy restaurant for Sunday Lunch or an evening meal is delightful.
