“Great value and a character host”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

We have been going to the Pines for many years. Their hot meals (the only Filey café that serves them) are really good value. Nearly all are around £5 and that covers things like Gammon with chips and veg, or different homemade pies with chips/potatoes and salad or veg. You can really fill up at the Pines and if it is a coolish day, or if you want plenty of energy for a beach walk, they will really fit the bill.

This is very much a local’s café, but you will be made very welcome and the genial and amusing host, Malcolm, will get a laugh out of you, not least with his congratulatory comments every time that you order something. We have know Malcolm and his wife Margaret (who is normally in the kitchen) for many years and the café always has a friendly atmosphere with people talking to one another and being entertained by Malcolm’s numerous comments. Also ideal for families and just slightly off the beaten track on Hope Street.

The Pines in Hope Street Filey well worth a visit, home cooked food, very friendly service and reasonable prices. Refreshing to find good traditional home cooking
and excellent service, will definately return.

“great little diner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2011

The five of us visited this small friendly diner while at Filey and what a find. They serve light snakes to full meals all cooked to order, the food is sourced locally and the staff are always friendly and willing to help in any way possible.
The meals are very resonably priced with large portions. It does get very busy, so you may have to wait but it is worth it.
