Description: Real Ale And Pub Food On The Seafront, Overlooking The Harbour In Staithes. Bottome Of Church Street, Opposite Gun Gutter
Reviewed 6 April 2018

Life really doesn’t get much better than sitting out in the sun, overlooking the harbour, great pint in hand, eating a fresh crab sandwich.

There’s not much more to say - brilliant food, great beer, fantasy location. There’s a great menu, but I imagine seating will be very hard to get in summer.

If you’re in the area, an absolute ‘must-do’.

We had a lunch here today and it was excellent! The menu was worryingly vast for a small pub but the food was genuinely lovely and prepared freshly. Service was efficient and quick too.
Big daddy and super sis in law had chicken parmo - a vast swathe of chicken with bechamel sauce and cheese. he highlight has to the me the proppa chips and garlic mayo. The big boy sons demolished steak and ale pie - I would challenge anyone to cram in more meat - a desperate dan cow pie! I had mussels which were many and lovely.
Great food and atmosphere and a cute pub - just make sure you sample the chips - they are legend :-)

Staying in Staithes for the long bank holiday weekend we visited here a couple of times. The pub was busy all the time and as there was no booking it was a free for all on tables. I found it quite stressful trying to get a table but once seated menu choice was good. Really attentive bar staff and waiting staff and good wholesome food. Would recommend but would prefer a fairer table approach if you cannot book; ticket system from the bar or something similar.
