Our second visit to the wayfarer the last being two years ago. We were a group of 8 and were comfortably seated. The owners resisted the peak season greed of squeezing an extra table in so although the restaurant was full there was ample room for our table. The group had varied meals from the main menu and specials board.... More

My husband and I ate at the Wayfarer recently. My husband's starter of garlic mushrooms was simple but delicious. All the elements of my black pudding starter unfortunately tasted of deep fried oil that badly needed to be changed. I was told that the lamb main course is always cooked pink which is how I like mine to be cooked.... More

My husband and I travelled on spec to Robin Hoods Bay and stayed at The Wayfarer. We were welcomed by the new owners who were friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and spacious and we had a comfortable nights sleep. If we had pre-planned the trip, we would have tried to book a room with a balcony but as... More

We have just returned from an excellent overnight stay at The Wayfarer and would definitely recommend both the Bistro and the b&b. Michelle welcomed us when we arrived, and was then on hand to serve during the evening dinner service, and following breakfast... And her professional attitude and smile remained at all times. My fiancée and I enjoyed an excellent... More

We have stayed here previously on numerous occasions but this was our first visit with the new owners. We had room 2 which has a lovely balcony (great for people watching with a glass of wine) and has a wonderful view of the bay. We found the standard to be just as high, with clean, comfortable rooms with an excellent... More

First time we had stopped in the area. We only stopped for the one night and we had been given a room on the first floor which had a balcony and gave us some lovely views. The room was cosy and had an ensuite shower. The bed was comfy with the standard welcome chocolate. Having not eaten in the restaurant... More
