We dined here ladt night, the food was lovely and waiter service excellent. Not very much to choose from on the menu, very limited. But what we did order was lovely. The room downstairs is cosy and warm with an open fire. Definately got loads of character. My only criticism is the middle section of seating is to cramped and... More

We have eaten here a few times over the past 10 years or so on our visits to Whitby, and the food has always been of a good standard, with lots of choice, fish and seafood especially. Thankfully, I think perhaps due to a change of ownership, if you like chips, they are good and compliment the usual suspects. I... More

There's lots of places to eat in Whitby but not many have the wow factor. Will definitely be returning. Only negative there is is that it fully booked for... More

Having walked past this restaurant many times, we were persuaded to book by our B&B host, so glad we did, decent house red, starters of goats cheese tart and onion tart delicious. Mains were pork belly and steak which were also fantastic, crackling could've had more crackle but that might've been to the detriment of the soft meat. All in... More

The White Horse and Griffin could be the most amazing Restaurant in Whitby. The Venue is full of Traditional Whitby charm with a warm and welcoming feel. The food was lovely,albeit an offer of some bread with the meal and a jug of water would have been nice. However, our visit was totally ruined as our table was crammed into... More

Not uncommon for restaurants with a decent reputation in general, to serve substandard, overpriced, poorly conceived vegetarian food. White Horse definitely in that category. Not only was the food lazy, with the main being a variation on starter, but it was clear that staff had no interest in feedback. If you can't be bothered to get the basics right, broken... More

Three of us ate here on a blustery, wet Monday evening in October. Centrally located, it's a well designed place with a welcoming informal feel - you know the kind of thing: distressed wooden tables and rough stone floors. You enter through a long thin bar area that was slightly chilly though the main restaurant area was cosy enough. We... More
