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!
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.
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.
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 Grapes: Scaling Dam
Adjacent to the A171, eleven miles from Whitby
towards Guisborough and opposite the reservoir at Scaling, this former
coaching inn is stone-built to keep out the winter winds, you'll find
the warmth and welcoming atmosphere of a traditional rural hostelry. Add
to this the very best in home-cooking and well-kept real ales, and you've
got the ideal location for a family lunch.
The Lion Inn: Blakey Ridge
The Lion Inn on remote Blakey Ridge, is a 16th Century traditional Inn. It stands at an elevation of 1,325 feet above sea level, offering breathtaking views over the valleys of Rosedale and Farndale.
Open fires burn all day and evening in the ancient
fireplaces. The original low beamed ceilings add to the friendly atmosphere
of the Inn. The bar is well known for its good selection of quality real
ales which include Theakston's Best, XB, and Old Peculiar. An extensive
bar menu is available including vegetarian dishes, children's meals and
daily Chef's Specials. Well worth a visit.
The Falcon Inn: Near Cloughton
Originally a Coaching Inn, the Falcon stands
in its own fifteen acres of pasture and woodland, with its southerly aspect
towards the sea. 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
