The Horseshoe Hotel
Whitby and the Moors
First In Last Out: Whitby
This little pub is well off the tourist trail, being hidden away on the "Fishburn Park" estate. It serves a selection of real Ale's which are kept well.
The FILO has been increasing in popularity over the last couple of years thanks to Landlords, Justin and Martyn's efforts. It's now a great community Pub. Families, Goths and Dogs are all welcome.
To enjoy a superb pint with the local folk,
head up Windsor Terrace, which is at the back of the railway station,
up North Road, turn left onto Park Terrace, right onto Fishburn Road and
you will find it just on your right. Its about a four minute walk!
The Hart Inn: Sandsend
One of my favourite days out especially when
we have friends to stay, is to walk from Whitby along the beach to Sandsend.
Its about two and a half miles. The highlight of course, is to have a
few beers and a bite to eat before setting off back either by walking
or, if alcohol induced weariness becomes a factor, by bus! The inn itself
has a charming oldie world feel to it, with a coal fire completing the
Birch Hall Inn: Beckhole
This is my favourite pub on the Moors. The Theakstons
is excellent and where better to drink it than outside in the garden,
with the sound of the babbling river constantly in your ears and the occasional
treat of listening to a steam engine hauling its train up the heavy gradient
from Grosmont to Goathland.
Moorcock Inn: Langdale End
Its worth a trip to visit The Moorcock at Langdale End. Its not far from Silpho just near Scarborough. The food is quite reasonable and the beer is served over a trestle across the kitchen. On a summers day you can sit outside in the sun and imagine that you are drifting back in time about sixty years or so. I always think that this is what a pub on the bleak and empty moors was once like. Someone just selling beer brewed on the premises.
The Elsinore is Whitby's original 'Goth' pub
and is one of a handful that openly welcomes them on each of the Goth
weekends. It can get extremely busy at those times of year and getting
to the bar can be nearly impossible. Usually though the Elsinore is for
the local folk. In addition to an excellent pint of Cameron's Strongarm,
warm mulled wine and traditional pickled eggs are available.
