Not local to the area but stopped here for lunch and really glad we did. Great food, and given the standard of what we had, it was amazing value - two courses for just £12! I had a risotto with pheasant, and the risotto was probably the tastiest I've ever eaten so compliments to the chef. Our dining experience was... More

We booked for a late Sunday lunch having read how good it was supposed to be . In some ways it was very good . The beef was served medium rare and was wonderful. The pork my partner had was equally as good . The starters however were far from good . The pea and ham soup was in reality... More

Had an excellent night's stay at the White Horse and Griffin. They catered to my every vegan need including providing soy milk along with the tea amenities in the room, and the great value for money price included a cooked vegan breakfast. Our room was beautiful: clean, historical and filled with character. The location is in Whitby Jet central- church... More

My husband booked us in for a romantic supper on the second night of our trip. Since we ate here last it has changed quite a bit - but I was hopeful of a another good feed. Prompt service to begin with at least. Bread arrived along with our drinks. I had a special gin and rose and rosemary cocktail... More

My husband and I spent two nights at the White Horse and Griffin in November. A hotel, restaurant and pub combined in a 17th century building, the White Horse makes quite a change from the modern hotels that we usually stay in. Our room was at the top of the building up three flights of steep stairs. (I wouldn't recommend... More

Lovely atmosphere and great tasting food. The 3 course meal was good value for the food quality. Only bad point was certain food items listed in the menu were missing from the dish, such as the the crayfish & prawn salad starter listed with iceberg lettuce & tomato. Had no tomato and definitely wasn't iceberg.
