This was a surprise for me and a very welcome one; at my age birthdays are eminently forgettable! The White House is a large pub / hotel on the edge of Whitby on the West Cliff. It sits firmly above the sea and close to the golf course. We ate in the bar, plenty of customers but plenty of room.... More

As soon as I walked through the door I felt comfortable in this pub, it has an excellent ambience. Service was efficient and friendly. Food was quickly served, well presented and tasty. Prices maybe just a tad above usual pub grub level, but not a problem as the whole experience made it worthwhile

Just finished a three day break where we visited the White House each night. Excellent food & first class service from a young vibrant group of bar staff. Compliments to everyone involved. Will certainly return.

We visited whilst on holiday for my husbands birthday with our 3 yr old. We were all made very welcome. Service was very efficient and the food was excellent and amazing value for money. Wonderful views of the coastline. Would definitely visit again.

Usually stay here but unfortunately there wasn't availability. However we visited for an evening meal and it was the best ever. I had the Lamb Henry which was cooked to perfection in a delicious jus and my partner had the fish and chips which he thoroughly enjoyed. The pretty and cosy eating area looks over the golf course to the... More

Popped in for our tea and was not disappointed. Menu was plentiful. I opted for the Hunters Chicken which was lovely - lots of sauce too. Hubby had turkey roast - no complaints from him. The inside was nicely decorated with some lovely views. Would return.

Thank blueblueLancashire

The White House boasts the Seaview Restaurant, our fresh, spacious and welcoming restaurant that is situated to take full advantage of the glorious views along the Yorkshire Coast towards Sandsend.
With its relaxed and friendly atmosphere, bright decor and wooden flooring, serves a fine selection of both light snacks and more substantial fayre. The restaurant also offers an extensive choice of innovative dishes and regional specialties, with an ingredient-led menu that is strong on fresh clean flavours and presentation, making the White House one of the more popular restaurants in the area.
In the summer months the views that are commanded by the White House are best enjoyed with a glass of wine sat in the garden looking out to sea.
The restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner for both residents and guests and reservations are recommended to avoid disappointment.
