“Unfussy and good quality to match”

We stopped for sandwiches mid afternoon. Very friendly staff and lovely fresh crab sandwiches served with a small salad. Would definitely recommend for a lunch stop while you're browsing the shops and sights of Whitby

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

Very Reasonably priced, £12 for two steak burgers chips and salad, which was absolutely lovely, £6 for a Smirnoff Ice and Budweiser which is really good. Atmosphere was really good, but it can get busy, Staff were really friendly, food can very quick and was very nice.

“Glad we stopped”

Called in here when looking for a quick snack.
Lovely cakes and friendly staff. Kids were struggling to choose from the extensive milkshake options. Try the upside down cheesecakes!

“Surprised to not find this ranked higher”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

After walking the length and breadth of Whitby one Sunday checking out all the menus we chose to eat here. I had fancied fish and chips but then that is what everyone else is serving.

Here there were some different dishes and the atmosphere was less formal than some of the others. They have light things and then some decent main courses.

I had a sea food platter and my partner has a steak. The impractical thing was that they were served on chopping boards which could have been more messy. Both were substantial and we found it difficult to finish it off.

The prices were reasonable and the service was quite good. They had high chairs if you are a family with young children.

“Great coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

We called in here about three times over three days during our stay at Whitby. The choice of coffee is good and the selection of milkshakes is incredible (althought we didn't get chance to try one). The decor is nice and it has a great atmosphere. Only criticism is that the toilets are a little on the grubby side.
