Lovely meal

Brilliant fish and chips overlooking the sea washed down with a couple of gin and tonics made for a great meal. My only criticism is that the decor could do with a freshener. Staff friendly and polite.

On a day out to Robin Hoods Bay we decided to have lunch at the Bay Hotel and Restuarant. Decoration isn't at its best and it could do with it being refurbished. It was 1:30pm and we didn't want much to eat therefore only ordered soup and a roll. Just as well as the menu wasn't brilliant. The soup tasted... More

On this occasion we only had evening drinks in the bar. I love the bay hotel though as the bar is directly over the North Sea. On the evening we were there it was a cold windy evening, and the warming atmosphere of the bar, with the wind battering at the window was perfect for this old smuggling village by... More

We eat here whilst staying in Robin Hoods bay for 1 night. We picked this pub/Hotel due to it's location right on the sea wall. We both had fish & chips and we can both say these were very good and worth eating here for. We managed to get a table next to a window which provided great views to... More

A very nice place to sit and eat our meal. They even allowed us to bring our friends' dogs in which they do nto normally do, though we sat next to the door. I had some wonderful spare ribs which were in a lovely rich sauce which was not too spicy as a starter, and plenty of them. For mains... More

Went to the bay hotel on 28th April for lunch I ordered the salmon,new potatoes,and salad salmon microwaved to a frazzled potatoes and salad far from fresh for £12.00, total ripoff. Complained to the waitress who could not have cared less. Also my partner had scampie which was ok but the chips not nice.

Had dinner here with our family of four. Staff friendly enough and the beer was fine. Place was trading on its position ie right on the Bay. Had a nice enough outlook but the food was disappointing, if you are staying down in the Bay then it has a proximity advantage; however I would say it is well worth the... More

We arrived here just on the stroke of 2pm when the lunch service ends and were made to feel welcome nonetheless. We had scampi with chips and a crab sandwich with a side order of chips. Both were very good and incredibly fresh as you would expect in a seaside resort. We are al fresco overlooking the beach on a... More
