“A few days in Whitby”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

We took friends from Kent to see Whitby which is a place I know well and where my parents lived. Unfortunately due to mist, fog, low cloud, fret - call it what you will - we didn't see as much of North Yorkshire as we would have liked! We had eaten at Cross Butts Stables several times in the past and always liked the place. The food is very good and they coped well with our nephews and niece. They have a lovely outside space with rabbits, horses and glorious views (when weather allows you to see them!) This time we stayed in their courtyard rooms for 3 nights. Very different - our rooms had an 'upstairs' for the bedroom with living area and bathroom downstairs. The meals were excellent and the accommodation was great. Staff were helpful and courteous. Really couldn't have asked for more - except good weather which was beyond their control!

“"A great mix of food, staff and surroundings!!"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We had been out for the day at dalby forest, the weather had been unkind, We were wet, cold and in need of food and as all the other pubs had stopped doing food so we had a drive round to find somewhere, We have driven past the place a hundred times in the past and if id have known the food was this good we would have stopped and visited a LONG time ago. The menu is great, not to big and not to small, and as my husband can't eat certain things its sometimes a task to find suitable things to eat for him.The inside is lovely in decor, old yet upto date, all the lovely origanal beams and big wooden hand made tables, the staff were ALL very helpful, polite and welcoming. I had the steak and ale pie that came with a veg and the best REAL chips, the pastry had herbs in it and the steak just melted in the mouth. And as for the veg, there was peas, carrots, THE most Amazing pumpkin puree, and as a yorkshire lass I love gravy and all i was missing was a slice of bread to mop it up and Im fairly sure if id have asked they would have got me one!!!. All in all this is a fantastic place with great views and AMAZING food. They also do weddings here so if you are looking for a venue with charm and personalty, with food to die for then this is the place for you!! Please PLEASE give the cross butts stables a go if your passing by its well worth it and please bare in mind that when we visited we had not booked and just turned up to be welcomed by a great place. We will be back with friends soon.

“Sunday dinner at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We had a table booked for 3.30 pm for 11 including 2 family members who are in wheelchairs.we arrived early and only had to wait ten minutes till we were shown to our table.They have a room upstairs with access via an elevator.The decor in this room was dark and not as inviting as the rest of the place but this would be my only criticism.We of course ordered the Sunday dinner mine was the Turkey and others ordered the Beef and some ordered the whitby fish and chips and they were all outstanding.The Yorkshire puddings were a bit crispy but nothing that a good lathering of gravy couldn't fix.The food at The Crossbutts definitely stands out in a very competitive market and we would highly recommend eating there.

“Made to feel as welcome as cockroaches”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We pulled in to their car park to be greated by a lovely sign sayoig all welcome open from breakfast to supper. We walked in to be greeted and asked "have we booked"?. No as we were on a day out, they sniped that they were fully booked. And we could wait but there was no where to sit. So we left as they unpolitly piointed out they had a wedding. Good for them however once there is no wedding I am sure they would be more accomadating to passing trade.....bad show would not advoise you go as very unwelcoming staff.
