We found this place when we stayed at Park Resort Cayton Bay. 'Himself' is a massive real-ale fan, and when confronted with a choice of electrically-pumped Boddingtons or electrically-pumped Boddingtons at the resort, he set off in search of the holy gr(ale). A short walk across the road found this little gem, where he discovered the treasure of the Wolds; Wold Top ale, hand-pulled, no less! Aside from this, the establishment serves good food, ranging from soup and a sandwich/panini at lunchtime, to evening offerings of racks of ribs and speciality curry/steak nights. I can only comment on the lunchtime menu, as we didn't eat here in the evening. Sandwiches and paninis were stuffed to bursting with fillings, bowls of chips were huge, and soup was delicious. I may be wrong, but I get the feeling that this is a family-run business, as the atmosphere and the staff are friendly and efficient but relaxed at the same time. The beer garden is secure and welcomes dogs and children; there is a smashing timber climbing frame contraption, on which our four-year-old granddaughter had loads of fun and made loads of friends!
We like this place a lot, and would very likely visit in the future, even if we weren't staying at Park Resorts Cayton Bay.

Just visited the Tow Bar for their Monday night steak night and we can honestly say that this was the most disappointing visit to any restaurant we have had in years!
Cramped into the conservatory along with desperate starving campers from the adjoining campsite, we were treated to overcooked, unidentifiable animal flesh which left us wishing we had gone to the nearby circus and had a hot dog instead.
With a garnish of three mushrooms and six rubbery onion rings between the two of us we are now back in the caravan devouring maltesers and a walnut whip to get over the shock!

We visited Cayton village campsite and after a day on the beach we stopped with the dog for a fantastic meal and a few drinks. The staff where very friendly and kids have plenty to do in a big beer garden.

We bought a caravan on cliff farm in April going into the pub that day was one of the deciding factors in us buying, we are now frequent visitors to the tow bar. Run by Sonia, her lovely girls and an excellent barman you immediately feel at home with the welcome you get, its like going to visit old friends, food and service is brilliant! All our family loves to come over and go to the tow bar for a good laugh and lots of fun. Would not hesitate to recommend visiting the tow bar. Lovely people.
