We sat in the lounge upstairs next to the fire enjoying a gin cocktail and some excellent beer. The food was prepared beautifully and the restaurant is a lovely experience. My only comment is that we left still hungry; the portions for the mains and desserts are really quite small by any standards. Nevertheless, worth a visit.

Called in for family dinner. Our dog was welcomed and the atmosphere chilled. Had the special bouillabaisse- was stunning! Merlot was great - had a super meal will be back :)

We went for Christmas dinner , Christmas day; it was very busy , as you would expect, but everyone was lovely, our waitress was bubbly and sweet. The food was excellent, and plenty of alternative options to turkey. It was a good atmosphere, even though it was busy. We have been many times now and never disappointed. We are going... More

Please trust us (my hubby and I), when we say try the cocktail 'damn shame' & 'rhubarb & ginger' (I can't quite remember the last... More

The presentation was brilliant with the white crab meat in a crispy roll[not at all like a spring roll] more like the shape of a... More

Called in for a drink. Got seats by the fire which was lovely. Got to meet the most beautiful dog! Unfortunately the drinks weren't great, the Guinness was so bad I thought he was going to throw it away but nope it was presented to us, straight poured from a height over flowing with bubbles...

We popped in here for our lunch after seeing that lamb's liver, onions and mash were on the menu. Couldn't resist. We did have to wait quite a while for the food to come to the table but it was worth the wait, lovely pink, tasty liver. Would eat here again.

Our party of 4 attended a wedding reception booked at the inn for the whole night. About 25+ people where invited. The inn had put together a great menu selection for the guests to pick from in advance. On the night, the function room had a great atmosphere. The food was great, but the best thing was the staff, who... More

I would recommend the White Horse for dinner to anyone visiting Whitby , the food is great and the atmosphere excellent . It is a little let down by its service which seems a bit complacent and the tables are a bit too close for intimate conversation so more a spot for dining with friends than a romantic meal for...
