You would think that being in Whitby you would be safe ordering fish, but no - it was cold and gloopy.

Lovely food and cocktails! Would recommend the rib eye or if you have a hearty appetite the T bone which was huge! A destination for lovely food or even just a drink 🍹

I chose this restaurant due to the reviews and variety of food it had and the cocktail choice.

This is a fabulous little bar with views over the harbour and friendly, attentive staff. We sat in the window watching the world walk by and drank delicious German beer. For a starter we shared the most amazing battered prawns you will ever taste! They are a plate of joy and well worth ordering even if just for a snack.... More

The chilli nachos were lovely, my husband had cod and chips which he highly rated and the chicken and chorizo skewer was good. The waitress was lovely and recommended the dormunder pils... More

The food was sent back , when returned I was informed the chef had said there was no problem with it. The only redeeming feature... More
