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

This place lives off the location not its kitchen. Sea views all round but all windows soaked in condensation. The meals were edible. A let down as the pies were microwaved up (with freshly cooked chips). The drinks were fine they sell Strongbow Dark Fruits on draught if you like that.

We last visited the Bay Hotel 25 years ago at the end of our Coast to Coast walk. This time, we had only walked the 7 miles from Whitby. The walk was wonderful. The Bay Hotel is on the sea with astonishing views which are simply breath taking. Unfortunately, the kitchen was being refitted on the day we visited so... More

This is a great location at the edge of the slipway at RHB where in winter you can genuinely get waves splashing up against the windows of the pub. The pub has a warm and friendly atmosphere, if dated. We ordered burger and chips and received a poor processed burger in a cheap bun with frozen chips. Now, in my... More

We were holidaying in the bay and arrived at the The Bay Hotel with the intention of having a drink and seeing if we fancied anything to eat there. However the overwhelming stench of dirty old fat smacked us in the face before we even set foot over the threshold. We decided to carry on and have a drink and... More
