“Sneaky treat”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

Taking advantage of a evening together my partner and I took a drive to Whitby. We have ate at cross butts a few times but only once for dinner. We arrived and sat in the garden and admired the outstanding views, whilst chilling and pursuing the menu. I myself was spoilt for choice however I chose the duck pate and seabass with crab on a bed of risotto, my partner opted for duck spring rolls and beef sizzler. Once seated in the conservatory the food arrived promptly and the pate and his spring rolls were tasty. The main course arrived and again was tasty especially my partners sizzler. The bill for 2 courses, 2 glasses wine and a pint totalled 54 quid. The only slight gripe I have is "please clear the main course away prior to offering the dessert menu" if given 5-10 mins grace we would have probably had dessert but when you are still looking at dirty plates dessert is the last thing you want. However it is a lovely place and the older chap who waits on is lovely.

“Holiday In Whitby.”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

While on holiday last week we visited this restaurant every nigh for our evening meal.The food was delicious and the staff were lovely. Our waiter was called Michael and nothing was too much trouble for him. The portions were huge and the food was amazing. When i said i could not manage the huge ice cream he suggested i just have the kids one and it was more than enough . The fish and chips were fab. We enjoyed the chicken with saute potatoes in a white wine sauce which came separately suited me as i dont like wine sauces. When i told him to give my complements to the chef he said it would be a pleasure as the chef was his brother and he was very proud of him. The chap behind the bar Greg remembered our drinks after our 1st night so we did not have to ask every night.Its a wonderful setting and the gardens are beautiful. They also sold eggs and vegetables fresh from the farm.We bought some eggs and they were lovely.We will be back again when next in Yorkshire.

“consitently very good”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

For a few years when in Whitby often eat at this very good restaurant. Pleasant helpful staff and nice large surroundings with large car park and garden.

Most memorable though is the constant excellent quaility and presentation of the food. The evening menu presents good choice well cooked and always feel I must give my complements to chefs and staff. Food during the day is equally good and if there for breakfast then I recommend without hesitation.

“Excellent find”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

We visited this restaurant on the bank holiday Sunday without a reservation. The grounds are stunning to sit and have a drink in.
The waitress explained that we might have to wait 40 minutes as they fully booked. We orederd some drinks and then went and sat in one of their many comfortable lounges.
The waitress was very attentive and in no time at all we were seated in the dining area overlooking the wonderful gardens.
The food we ordered was soon delivered to our table it was lovely and hot, absolutely delicious and more than we could polish off. We did have two courses!!
When we return to this area we will return to this gem of a restaurant.
