Great location

This pub has the best location in the Bay. Although it's not quite as full of character as other pubs in the Bay its position on the beach and outdoor seating make up for this. Decent range of drinks on offer.

I have visited this place for decades. The best thing is its excellent location. Food and beer are OK. Just normal pub grub.

Can't beat the oceanside location. Food was pretty good, place was full & everyone reasonably happy. Also went to Ye Dolphin, where food was better, & so was their homey atmosphere.

Called in for Dinner and it was really, really busy so took a while to be served at the bar and to order our food. The table we sat at was dirty and full of empty glasses probably because the Bar staff were rushed off their feet. The food was decidedly average and the Lasagne we ordered looked like it... More

We called in here for a quick bite while visiting the area recently. It is in a perfect setting right on the beach in the beautiful Robin Hoods Bay. The service was very quick and friendly even though they were very busy and the food was very tasty. Highly recommended

The view from the outside seating area was amazing. The portions are huge and the specials nicely cooked. The service was speedy and friendly.
