“Back again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

This is our favourite restaurant in Robin Hood's Bay. The food is brilliant - all freshly prepared and all the staff are so pleasant and friendly. Chris and Lucy always make us feel so welcome. Looking forward to our meal there in December already!

“Probably the best in RHB...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

The Wayfarer came highly recommended and it didn't let us down, a first indication of how popular it was on Friday (25th Oct) was that only early sittings were available - pre-booking is a must - the restaurant itself is small enough to be cosy but with modern, clean decor which makes a nice change in Robin Hoods Bay, staff were polite, attentive and not at all pushy.

The food itself was excellent, my wife had half a dozen huge King Prawns for a starter that could have easily been a main course and my 16oz rump steak main course was cooked rare and to perfection, something that some chefs seem to have a problem with.

Loved the meal here and the bill of £52 for two people with two courses and three rounds of drinks was only just a few pounds more than would have been in the pubs in Lower Bay and well worth it.

“Excellent food and ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

Went to the Monday Steak and Bake. Didn't listen properly when the waitress explained the deal but anyway £38 for 2 delicious fish mains - cod and monkfish - and a nice sauv blanc was excellent value. Highly recommended.

“Lovely food and no dearer than the pubs in the bay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

The weather forecast promised a couple of nice days at the start of October so we got a last minute booking at the Wayfarer. We decided to eat there on the first night. It was a good choice. We ate there the second night too. They serve very nice sea food and very nice meat dishes. The accommodation was spotless, the beds excellent, but it was the food that made the place so good. To conclude. This is a nice comfortable place to stay, but the restaurant is quite superb.
