Positive Reviews


Great food and drinks

Even though the menu was small, it was considered to be very interesting by many guests. It was prepared well and arrived quickly without much wait. Breads, meat, fresh fruit and vegetables are obtained from the local suppliers. Gluten free meals are also available. Bar is well-stocked with real hand pulled ales, wines as well as non-alcoholic drinks.


Pet friendly; accommodating staff

Guests travelling with their pets were relieved to have their pets welcomed. The staff members were very helpful and friendly. Few guests were even given the train timetable and advice on various places of interest.


Nice locality and plenty of activities

Whitby, which is set in the middle of the coasts with beaches, bays and cliffs, is close to the pub. Guests can enjoy the moors information and entertainment at the Danby Moors centre. Mountain biking is another activity that gives an opportunity to explore the natural beauty of Dalby Forest.

Negative Reviews


Outdated rooms

Most of the guests felt that the rooms look quite old and are in dire need of a refurbishment. Updating could add some warmth to the rooms. Some guests found garbage from the previous occupant under the bed.


Dirty bathrooms

Few guests were disappointed to see very filthy bathrooms. The roller blind on the bathroom window and shower had dried toothpaste all over it.


Poor Wi-Fi; odd room key

The erratic and patchy Wi-Fi connection was a big disappointment for many guests as they could not even check their e-mails. Some guests found the room keys with one foot long plastic tags very awkward and difficult to carry around. It looked more like a shoe horn than a key.
