Pub does excellent food with great views of the harbour. The staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Can unload car outside... More

We are regular visitors to Whitby and have eaten here a couple of times in the past and always enjoyed it. We often pop in to try and get a table, but usually there is a big queue of people waiting. However, on a recent visit, we were lucky and got a table. Our 7 year old wanted fishcake and... More

Dropped in a couple of times last week for a drink when we were ambling about on the East Cliff area. This was the favourite pub of my parents when they visited the town; my father sailed on the Duke of York during WWII and he had a particular soft spot for the location - set just above the harbour...

After a long hilltop walk into Whitby and descent to sea level, we found the Duke of York. The pub had good signage and attractive outdoor plants and appeared very welcoming. As it was after 1.30pm it was great to see they are open for food all day. The bar staff were very professional and friendly and on viewing the... More

Although this has views of the sea to die for, despite very expensive drinks the cleanliness of the toilets was disgraceful. They are very small, smelly and the decor is "very tired". I would not dream of ordering a meal here for that reason.

Stayed here for one night, lovely pub lovely room. We ate in the pub on the evening and the food was beautiful. Friendly staff. Only down side was the early morning wake up call (6.30am) by the dray-man but what else do you expect staying above a busy pub. Would definitely stay again excellent views and atmosphere...proper pub

can't fault this place. Great views over the water, drinks aren't over priced, the pub has a lot of charm and the bar staff were just lovely. We were so touched by how friendly they all were and we wished we could visit more often. Try the whisky board if you go! Whisky, chocolate, information page - brilliant.

Stopped off here for a few drinks. Staff are wonderful. The drinks aren't over priced. They have a great variety of whisky and all the drinks were spot on. Would definitely recommend. The food menu is great too. Anyone in Whitby should check this nice little pub out
