First ever visit to this pub. Very quiet as weather was terrible. Friendly staff but very slow service for only 3 tables.
We ordered 2roast beef Sunday lunches. Reheated veggies and toughest beef I've ever had.
Staff behind bar even laughed at our attempts to cut it .......

Great location but won't be rushing back.

i love the cod and lobster as i do staithes.the staff are lovely always smiling even though they rushed of there feet.pub has great feel to it,must mention it has been taken over by new landlord whom are great people and service same as always excellent.the food seems to have dipped in standard but im sure they will get it back to high standard that is expected from cod & lobster,the food was still nice just bit bland and there was 4 of us who all had different dishes of menu and all said our meals were bit bland but still nice.the steak with trimmings was poor as got chips & salad,with steak it should be chips large mushrooms,tomato, peppercorn sauce included.hope cod & lobster get up to high standard soon as fantastic place.

We revisited this pub in November having really enjoyed our food and drink last year. However following the change in ownership, I tend to agree with an earlier comment that the previous high standards are not quite the same
The Black Sheep beer was not well kept flat and lifeless and the fish and chips which I raved about previously was ok but poor by comparison - only a small fish and far too much batter

Staff dressed in black - all polite but the 'soul' of this pub was not there.

By contrast The George was really warm and welcoming, fantastic Theakstons XB and Old Peculiar - the only problem is you have to get there early because it gets packed - I wonder why....?

Called in for lunch on a quick visit to Staithes. Lady serving was great we had a crab sandwich, a must !!, good selection of beers and nice wine as well. 10 out of 10 for effort getting the fire started.
Definitely recommend a visit and we will be going next time we visit Staithes, the evening menu looked really tempting as well.

We called in for lunch and enjoyed the views out across a rolling sea. Had a crab sandwich which was absolutely packed full of crab - one between 2 would have been ample! Really fresh and one of the best crab sandwiches I have ever had.

The evening menu looked very tempting too.
