This was our first visit to Robin Hood's Bay, and after a walk along the beach we wanted some dinner before travelling home. The Bay Hotel stands right on the sea front and has outdoor seating on the front and the back. We had our dog with us so sat in the February sun out the back. I went in... More

Beer fine. Atmosphere OK. Veg fine. Chips rather nice. Yorkshire pud good. Cumberland sausage was the cheapest flavourless meat free excuse I have ever been served. Took half of it home for my dog. Even she was not impressed. Hugely disappointing.

One of the few places open on a Tuesday eveining in mid february in Robin Hoods Bay. Fire was on but the doors were propped open so not very warm. We enjoyed a drink each and ordered some food. Yorkshire puds, chips and peas were fine but the 'Cumberland' sausage was probably the nastiest cheapest sausage I have ever tried... More

Can't comment on the food as we only dropped in for a drink on a very cold evening in January. The beer, from the Theakstons and Black Sheep Brewery homes was excellent, the log fire superb, and the staff very friendly. Location is stunning, right at the bottom of the village, on the edge of the sea, great place to... More

This is a regular haunt for us. The food is wholesome and portion size will fill even the hungriest. As an added bonus there are fabulous sea views, and real ales on hand pumps. Theakstons is the regular ale, with other guest ales usually available. Weekends are busy here, but turnover is high so it is not usually usually a... More

We were spending a couple of nights in Robin Hoods Bay and during the afternoon popped in for a drink. We received the most inviting of welcomes, like we were old friends. There are a good selection of 'real ales' and the usual beers and lagers. The views over the bay are fantastic, really relaxing looking out to sea. We... More

We popped into the Bay Hotel after completing the C2C walk. The whole bar was filled with walkers and tourists giving it an excellent atmosphere. The wait at the bar wasn't too long and the beer was reasonably priced. Great to follow in Wainwright's footsteps right to the end.

Just completed the Cleveland walk & went to the pub for a drink & a bite to eat at approx 2pm. Asked the bar man if there were any sandwiches available. He sighed, shouted to the kitchen staff 'are you still doing sandwiches'? He said he'd do us cheese or ham. Felt like a inconvenience. Been to this place when... More
