It's a small, friendly cosy place, and I'd say the better of the cluster in the immediate locality.

Unfortunately it was a bit too crowded to stay when we called, but I'd give it another go at a quieter time.

Small 2 room pub just at the bottom of a steep hill opposite the swing bridge.

My 3rd pub in Whitby to do and after 3 it was sitting in 3rd place! Nice old fashioned decor however on my lunch time visit it was very quiet, with just a couple of local blokes in. As we were leaving a large group of fellas came in and filled the small room at the front.

3 ales on cask, these were Wells Bombardier, Black Sheep Best Bitter and Golden Sheep. The Golden Sheep I had was very well kept and poured.

Worth a tick but not the best pub here in my opinion.

This was over favourite watering hole in town. Good selection of ales, although I was on the lagers so didn't sample. Vy friendly welcome and the communal seating arrangement facilitates a good bit of banter with strangers! Would definitely go back.

Quirky, characterful old pub.
Good beer on hand pumps, friendly staff.
Nice surprise just off the harbour side.

Visited this pub on the last day of the Whitby regatta and when I walked in the pub was full of geordies all pixxed.... not a good sign. A small but lovely pub the beer (Skipton Copper Dragon) was actually quite decent and well kept...

When some of the geordies left the pub the landlady sprayed air freshener all over and made everyones beer flat.... she replaced them though which I thought was a great touch... overall I quite liked this pub..... it had a friendly atmoshphere but when its packed its packed.... the beer was well maintained...
oh and not all geordies smell either !!
