Spent a pleasant hour here on a half term day out so we (and our Springer!) could have a bit of a rest. Great pint of Taylor's Landlord and even more enjoyable couple of pints of "Black Death". Wide variety of customers from blokes in for the real ale to B&B guests and families, all welcomed and enjoying the day.... More

Visited for a drink, which I left without finishing. The chardonnay was mediocre, but worse than that was that the barman had commercial radio playing in every room. Why would I want to have a drink with my partner on holiday, whilst being sold insurance and car loans? Awful. Who is the pub being run for? We both used the... More

The most welcoming bar man we met in whitby, full of knowledge of the local area, advising us on all the pubs etc. Very friendly young man. Pub is ok, although every one seemed to be staring which made us feel a bit uncomfortable. So we left and went to another pub recommended by the bar man.

Not sure what's going on in this pub since the owners have bought another pub in Halifax , Xmas day and Boxing Day there was no heating just a small convector heater , bearing mind it was 0 degrees outside , talking to the staff it seems nobody has been left in charge . Shame because they really turned this... More

We popped in for lunch and ordered two normal pub meals. The meals arrived 30 minutes later. Not bad if the pub was busy but there was around 10 other people in the pub. The food was nice and not badly priced, but this was ruined by the wait. The pub had a wide range of drinks on sales. Eat... More

We only popped in for a quick pint but from what we saw the pub is excellent. It's got plenty of character and charm, and a great selection of beers. Situated right in the heart of Whitby next to the harbour this pub is perfect to while away a few lazy hours.

Whilst walking around Whitby taking in the sights and sounds of the active fishing town we stumbled upon the The Dolphin Hotel on the other side of the estuary with dining room windows overlooking the estuary and fishing boats. The staff were friendly and accomodating. The meals we ordered were of excellent quality and well prepared. Well done team.
