This is our 4th year visiting Robin Hood's Bay. The staff and service at The Bay Hotel is always good, everyone is so friendly. OK, the bar area is very small so there might well be a wait to get served for drinks but once food is ordered, it is always delivered piping hot within 10 minutes, can't fault them... More

We stopped here for lunch on a sunny day, so we were able to get a seat easily. The selection of food is great, and we were very pleased that the fish we ordered was fresh. Portions are ample too. The beer is fresh and there is a great selection, and there is a great view. However, the interior is... More

We asked Dan if we could book for 18 people for our Anniversary. When he heard it was our 40th he offered us Wainwright's bar. When we arrived he had a board outside welcoming us and saying it was a private party. The room inside was decorated with banners and balloons. The evening was fantastic with good food, music and...

Good beer and decent food but terribly slow service at the tiny bar. Locals jump the queue quite openly and brazenly, which I understand but as a tourist, I felt undervalued. The regulars alone would not sustain this bar. You need the tourists so treat them like you understand that
