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.
