“Overnight break”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Whitby is one of our favourite "bolt holes" and we stayed at the Stables having read an article in the Yorkshire Post paper. We were not disappointed. We had originally booked to go in January but that trip was snowed off so this was the rearranged visit. We stayed one night and had the lamb shank from the menu which was very good. Breakfast the next day was also good - it would take a few trips up the 199 steps to Whitby Abbey to work off the calories. The next time we visit we may try a different room to see how it compares to the one we stayed in.

“Limited menu, expensive, great service”
Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

Lovely food, but the menu is very limited. Tad expensive at £17(ish) average main course. My pint of Guinness which I ordered on arrival had a 1.5" head on it with the remainder running down the side of the glass. Service was a little slow but compensated for by the waiting staff which were second to none. Probably wouldn't go back

“Excellent well worth visit”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

We booked a group for a meal in mid January on a cold night and we couldnt believe how warm and welcoming it was. We sat in the lounge area while we studied the menu and were then shown to a large table. The meals were all brilliant and we are all fussy eaters and no one had any complaints at all. The meals were a bit pricey but you get for what pay for. Would definitely visit again maybe in summer to see the views

“Local sourced wholesome food in a rustic setting”
Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

All food is sourced locally, and the suppliers publicised. There are no service charges and the prices are reasonable. Check put the website http://www.cross-butts.co.uk/restaurant.php. It's a lovely location, just outside of Whitby and a rustic feeling to the restaurant itself. Sunday lunch is a selection of meats served with a variety of six seasonal vegetables. Smashing!
