The food was incredibly tasty and generous but it took 2hrs 20mins in total from when we arrived to when we left because the service was incredibly slow. The staff were friendly and courteous.

I used to come here with family as we had relatives in the village. When we go back now it brings back very fond memories. The food is good pub food and reliable. The service is good and the atmosphere is really nice. It has a nice setting and is very convenient on the Whitby to Scarborough road. Worth visiting.

Spent 2 nights in a very comfortable room with four poster bed and tea making facilities. We were there for a 60th birthday meal for 28 people. Food was served quickly and piping hot. Everything was delicious. The wine was surprisingly good considering it was on tap and put on the table in jugs. The two of us ate there the next evening. The chips were the best we had ever had. The cooked breakfast was excellent with cereals and fruit also available. The staff were friendly and helpful. Would recommend highly.

Booked an overnight B+B, when touring through Yorkshire.The owners daughter greeted us and made us feel very welcome. We booked for dinner in the dining room, glad we did, the restaurant filled quickly. We had been contacted prior to our stay to inform us that there was a private function on the same night we were staying, not a problem as, it really did not disturb us, (party was on in the public bar). Our room was well presented, clean and had everything we needed for an overnight stay. The locals were friendly, I should mention we are a sociable couple so we found this welcoming. Menu offered good wholesome grub, a bowl of chips and selection of new pots and 3 veg came with the main course. The staff were friendly, and worked hard to offer this family run pub a homely, relaxed feel. My only moan was being woken by a female residents voice, I assume coming in late (about 1.30am) as she thanked the landlord.. This was obviously not the landlords fault...Breakfast was the usual offering, plenty to fill you for your day ahead. Would recommend if anyone is in the area....
