Unfortunately we could only stay for one night but we will be booking again for a longer stay because we found this place to be excellent.

The lounge room was very welcoming with the fireplace lit and big comfy lounge chairs. The dinner was exceptional – the quality and presentation of the food was at a Michelin star level.

The breakfast was well worth it too. We enjoyed the homemade jams, fresh coffee, croissants, and the full English breakfast (fantastic bacon and sausages).

The owners were very friendly and welcoming.

Our first visit here was for a weekend in the depths of winter on my wife's birthday. We received a very warm welcome from our hosts and nothing was too much trouble. When they found out it was her birthday, they left a souvenir mug and home-made biscuits for my wife in our room. The room was comfortable and the snug bar had a roaring log fire. The restaurant was far beyond our expectations - not pub food but superior English cooking, with the provenance of all the fresh ingredients, from home-reared beef to Whitby fish (and even the vegetables) listed on a blackboard in the bar. Yorkshire-size helpings! The location is perfect for visiting Whitby and the North Yorkshire Moors, and the pub stands in a picturesque setting by the River Esk. Couldn't fault it - we've booked again for the autumn.

Spent two nights here recently and went walking in the surrounding area. Stayed in room 5 which was a lovely 4 poster with bathroom and a little sitting room. Plenty of tea and coffee, a bar of chocolate and some homemade shortbread await. If you are sensitive to noise then ask for a room that is not over the main bar area as there as you can hear some noise from below. The bedroom of room 5 however is perfectly quiet and over the restaurant area.

A lovely warm welcome when we arrived from Karen in the bar area and we felt like we fitted in very quickly. In a small village pub you would imagine that as a stranger you would feel uncomfortable but this is quite the opposite and the local community seem very friendly.

What makes this a good place to stay however is the food. With almost nothing around without someone having to drive, having a restaurant (a very good one at that) on your doorstop is fantastic. A word of warning - the full english is not for the faint hearted! There is a lot of food however it really will last you until supper. We ate both evenings in the restaurant and would happily have ate for many more. The scallops were sublime, the beef excellent and the puddings sizeable. Plenty of choice, all freshly cooked by Alistair and his team and a good selection of wines, at reasonable prices, to go with it all. If you can manage it after all the indulgence, sit down in front of the fire and enjoy one of nearly 60 odd whiskies.

A lovely weekend walking on the moors and around some beautiful scenery, complemented by a very warm welcome and good food at the Board Inn.
