My family and I plus our Yorkshire Terrier visited the Runswick Bay Hotel for lunch after enjoying a short walk in the area. The outside appearance of the hotel is very unappealing and in need of renovation and redecorating, however we decided to give it a try as it is dog friendly!! I was immediately impressed by the local real... More

The hotel is situated at the top of the bank that leads down to Runswick Bay beach. The hotel needs a little updating here and there but don't let that put you off. The staff are very welcoming, the food is excellent, the beer is cold, but best of all.....it's dog friendly ! This is a genuine establishment that loves... More

Camping 5 mins away the RBH offers really nice pub food with a good selection of real ales. The hotels rival Cliffemount Hotel up the road is more expensive and I would say they food is not as nice, so certainly not worth the more expensive prices.

Whilst staying on the close by Runswick Bay Campsite, we used this place for a couple of beers and light bites whilst sat outside soaking up the sun or waiting for the Bus. Cracking pint of Bud and the other half loved your 'home made' cheesy chips. Friendly polite staff, Restraunt side looked modern and recent. Will use again. Cheers.

My wife and I recently stayed here for three nights and we're only sorry we didn't book for one night! The room we had was average, with shabby chic furnishings. Although we found the breakfasts pretty good, well cooked and served by very pleasant staff we were less happy with the food served in the evenings. One night my wife... More

We visited this Hotel twice in the last week for an early evening meal and both times we were both incredibly impressed. We were greeted on arrival by the beautiful Ted, a chocolate Labrador with impeccable manners. The interior I think is undergoing refurbishment but to me it was looking good and the bar and restaurant areas all looked clean,... More

A great find. Called in for lunch on an anniversary day out because we had heard it was dog-friendly. The hotel staff were really welcoming and definitely dog-friendly, happily accommodating the whims of the more neurotic of our dogs. Food was very good, served quickly but freshly cooked. Reasonable prices too. Very pleasant seating area with lots of space and... More

I visited a few weeks ago for a family meal. The food was spot on, as was the service. The staff were very friendly and theres a nice selection of drinks available at the bar. What more do you need? I'll be returning again soon.
