Lovely old traditional pub interior. Called in for a drink. Excellent beers all beautifully smooth and well conditioned. Good choices on lunch menu. The crab we chose was beautiful and served with a good salad and hearty chips. Smiley, friendly service. Always open. Do call in.

Had dinner there on Saturday night, it was very busy and there was eight of us so we had to sit at two different tables. We were told we might have to wait a... More

Stayed in Staithes 3 times over last 3 years and it wouldn't be the same without visiting 'George'. "Friendly staff, will always make you welcome, especially the manager, (Paul)?? We will be back again VERY SOON, Heather, Stewie and 'the Springer Spaniels'.

What a fab little place this is, very traditional and cosy, with fab food. We ate here three times during our week in Staithes and each meal was excellent. A special mention for the very friendly bar maid who even saved our dogs toy from the bin when we left it behind one night. Key words: traditional, atmosphere, friendly, beer,... More

Lunchtime visit, friendly atmospher and very reasonable beer prices. Food was typical pub fare, nice but a bit skimpy for the price (saying that someone on the next table had fish and chips and that looked very generous). Had sky sports on in the bar.

Thank Dave M

This is our favourite pub in Staithes, and we'd love to review it :) We have just completed our 2 new en-suite rooms with tea & coffee facilities & wake up to a full English breakfast
