“Outstanding All Round”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

We had nowhere to eat on a sunday evening and found this place on a whim. Looked great from the outside and certainly didn't dissapoint from the inside either.

We were met with a warm welcome, were given the option to go straight to our table or have a drink in the converted loft lounge which we went to with our refreshing drinks. What an amazing view!!! - Comfy and stylish chairs and sofas, beautiful table arrangements and a truely breathtaking view over the Yorkshire countryside. We reviewed the menu and made our selections - Were taken to our table (with the view) ordered our meals and had our drinks refreshed.

The meal - Absolutely delicious, great presentation, Quality ingredients and most importantly very fresh and with an extra something that made the dish more personal. Dessert was phoenominal and extremely tasty. The best meal we had in Whitby by far.

As for the venue the grounds were well kept and lovely to stroll round after dinner. There is a small play area for children and plenty of outdoor seats and benches as well as a lovely lilly pond towards the end and well kept cows which were very friendly and healthy looking!

Toilets were clean and in keeping with the decor of the establishment. Staff were very attentive and friendly - We honestly couldn't have asked for more.

Highly reccomend this place. We will revist again.

After a couple of days in York we made our way to Whitby & stayed in Cross Butts just outside of Whitby, room was excellent split on two floors. Very clean & very well planned. Stayed for dinner & was not disappointed. Starter & main where delicious & was too full for any deserts. Breakfast was just as good as the previous dinner. Great value hotel. Would recommend to anyone.

We stayed 2 nights & overall it was excellent. Room 6 is magnificent & worth the extra as a treat. Everything is pristine,clean & well maintained throughout the pub & hotel. Going midweek we took advantage of the meal deal which is an extra £20 per person for the evening meal. We did exactly the same last year except it was June. Food is excellent & 2 courses is more than enough for an healthy appetite. its also good value as there's not a huge amount of change out of £20 for the cheapest 2 courses. The return visit was every bit as good as the first visit and we plan on visiting again next year, but which month will it be ?

Visited for a friend's wedding.
The wedding room is tight for the 30 people in it. The venue is relatively recently refurbished and the hotch potch of "romantic" items in the garden make it seem slightly artificial.
Good food for the wedding breakfast.

Been to The Stables over the years but feel that the food doesnot have the same extra something that it had.
Such a shame because there is a lot choice of quality restaurants in Whitby.
The service though is still good but the choice is not the same.
It was better when it was self-service at the carvery & we only given 1 choice of meat at our last visit when it used to be 3 .
We also thought the cost of soft fizzy drinks at £1.60 per glass was a little bit expensive.
Still in a lovely setting & but will be a while till we return.
