“Nice friendly pub, off the tourist trail”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Well worth a walk up the hill. Quiet and friendly refuge from the tourist trail and close to some very interesting shops.

“An ideal pub”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

This pub was just round the corner from our accommodation so we decided to try it and were very pleased we did. There is a lovely cosy feel to the place. We had lunch: crab sandwiches and a bowl of chips. The sandwich was freshly made with lots of delicious crab, the chips were the best I have had for a while, you could tell they were freshly made as well. Service was good too. It is nice to find a pub like this that has everything just right.

“Bric a brac tactic!”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Great homely pub filled with lifeboat memorabilia. Nice staff and a good mixture of people. We really enjoyed it and would come back next time in Whitby.

“Welcoming and warm!”
Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

Small and cosy, the Elsinore is decorated with bric-a-bric of all kinds which in some pubs might seem contrived but here seems completely at home. There was only one ale on handpull when I visited which was Camerons Strongarm and although I usually look for a bit of variety this was still perfectly acceptable for a couple of pints. I can't comment on th food as I didn't eat but if you are looking for a warm, interesting little pub in Whitby then this is perfect.
