Stopped here for lunch while cycling on the cinder track - have been before for a drink - and ideal location at the top of the hill and with lots of outside seating. The views from the garden cannot be beaten and would definitely recommend as somewhere for a drink as the sun sets. However, the food we had today was terrible. The choice was limited as the restaurant is being refurbed. We ordered two bowls of soup - which took an age to arrive. The soup which was supposed to be Leek and Potato had a cheese fondant texture and had a skin on the top - and was served with tasteless cheap white sliced bread. Not good and wouldn't eat here again.

Went to a surprise birthday party here. Great location with fantastic views across the bay, good beer on tap, great service and the buffet they put on was spot on. If I'm ever back in RH's Bay I'll be going back. Highly recommend giving it a try.

We had lunch here this week. The setting is lovely, sitting in the garden overlooking the bay, however, we were not particularly impressed with the service or food that we received. We placed our order, eventually, at the bar. It was a sunny, warm day and the bar was packed and there was just one person serving drinks at the bar as well as taking lunch orders. The food was pricey for what we received. The sandwiches were on sliced white soggy bread and the crab lasagne, whilst tastey, was very small.

We are staying in beautiful Robin Hoods bay and ventured up the hill to eat in the Victoria Hotel. The restaurant was open with two free tables. But for some unknown reason they would not put the two tables together to accommodate our party of six. A little dumbfounded by their refusal to accept a perfectly sensible request I asked if we could sit elsewhere in the hotel and be served the restaurant menu. They would allow us into the empty and rather ugly bar, but nonsensically we could not be served the restaurant menu in the bar area.

Following the Hotel's senseless inability to serve us we walked a little further on to the Grosvenor Hotel and had lovely meal served by wonderful and accommodating staff. They saw us walk in and joined two tables without us having to even ask. The Victoria Hotel is at the bottom of the rankings for Robin Hoods Bay for a very good reason. Do not go there, walk on by to the Grosvenor.
