“A real good night !!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Sunday night in the Runswick Bay Hotel. We were told it was under new ownership so gave it a go. Still on going decorating but that's no problem. Had an excellent meal then in the bar for a few drinks, which was full of locals having a good night. We felt at ease and enjoyed the night. can not fault the staff, the landlord and the locals.will be going back soon. Been in other pubs locally but this one was best by far.

good place to stay on the walk. it is being redecorated but will take time. Nice friendly staff and owner, good beer, large hotel room.
breakfast was good, atmosphere was good, with a mix of locals and tourists. good to have a chat with some local people when visiting other parts of the country. one of the local blokes even went home and came back with some blister treatments for us!
only minor snag was asking for a rare steak and getting a very well done one - shame because it was a good steak. would definitely go again and expect that the redecoration will continue to improve the experience. keep up the good work!

Returned for a weekend break a year after our last visit. The place seems much more popular than previously with a busy bar and lots of meals being served. Food was good, the steaks being particularly impressive. Minor niggle- having to ask for and then wait for all the condiments, even the vinegar for fish and chips. Some rooms have obviously been refurbished and yes there are wires hanging from ceilings, but the rooms are of a good size and very comfortable.Another niggle- no spare toilet roll in room so had to find one in bar toilet. Breakfast good and plentiful.

I came with my family in a party of 16 as we were staying down in the bay, we were told there would be a wait which was fine as we were in no rush. When the good came it was very tasty with a lot of choice! The only problem was with the bill, we asked for it 3 times and ended up adding it up ourselves. But apart from that a nice meal out!

Stayed there on our penultimate night on our Cleveland Way Walk. To be frank the accommodation was shabby, seen better days, requires investment to bring it up to date. Breakfast service was exceptionally poor, they ran out of milk and tables were not made up properly. The only positive note was the evening meal was quite good, based on the overall experience would not stay there again.

Our room had about twenty wires hanging from the ceiling where spot lights hadn't yet been fitted. Lots of apologies- but should they have let the room when not finished? We weren't warned about this or given a choice of another room or part refund. The four poster had no canopy on it, just the plain wood frame which is not how they're supposed to be. Luckily we had brought a spare blanket which we threw over the top of the frame so that we didn't have to lie in bed looking up at a load of wires!
The plumbing from other rooms is very loud especially in the middle of the night. Pillows are hard. I had to clean our window so that I could see out of it properly. Worst, and the only thing which really annoyed, was the wait for dinner which from ordering to arrival of food took over an hour. Lots of apologies when food arrived.
Breakfast was disorganised with lacklustre service. More apologies.
On the plus side they have great beer, a good bar man (Oliver), great location and the food when it arrives is edible. Poached eggs were excellent. And they're all nice people. There was a general feeling that they needed to get more organised and sharpen up! Hopefully this will improve.

The New Owner of the Runswick Bay Hotel (Simon) is doing a great job.
The food was always good and now even better with a great family atmosphere and also dog friendly. Great Place , Great Service , Fantastic rustic feel and with both fires lite and roaring on a cold day the ultimate place to have a pint. ???
The Chicken Parmo is a must > enjoy.
