Took my husband and friends to the Board Inn for a birthday dinner last night. The food was fabulous. Portions are large - I had two starters and still couldn't manage the pudding I fancied. All the food was clearly made from fresh good quality produce. It was beautifully cooked and imaginatively presented. Thoroughly recommended

We had probably one of our best Sunday lunches here ever. The food is amazing - really fresh and very generous portions. We had the chicken and the lamb and both were excellent - coming with all the trimmings which were beautifully cooked. Staff were all very welcoming - would highly recommend.

Lovely welcome, and consistently friendly, relaxed service throughout our stay, thanks to manager and staff who know how to treat people well. Room was very small but spaces were ingeniously used to house all manner of treats and equipment. A boiler fault (following a service) meant hot water ran out whilst filling bath. Manager couldn't be more helpful, offering us... More

Bed mattress is very lumpy and needs updating. The twin bedroom was nice same small bathroom. The downstairs bedroom is really small, the double bed is... More

Second visit..first was in 2009 and shocking that we've waited this long to go back as we had a fabulous 8 night's here. Stayed in Apple Tree Cottage again which was lovely. Alistair, Karen and the whole Board Inn family make you feel so welcome...such a friendly gang. Food was lovely and we ate there every night...the lamb shank is... More

Wonderful location, fantastic menu that is locally sourced and drinks, you will not go hungry Great hosts. Ask for what accommodation is available as there are rooms and a self contained cottage. Highly recommended. Easy trip into Whitby by the local rail/bus,fantastic location for walks on the moor. We will be back.

Had dinner at The Board Inn. The place is lovely and the service was excellent. The menu looked very good. All four of us had a fish main course and sadly we were all disappointed with the fish - soggy plaice and overcooked haddock. The chips and vegetables were excellent and the desserts were fantastic - the home made ice... More

Have been here a few times and must say have never been disappointed. The place itself is set in a lovely position. Able to sit outside if weather is good. Food is delicious-weather it's a sandwich, Sunday lunch or meal on an evenin. A must if you are in the area
