This is a lovely pub in the countryside. My husband and I both had the Spanish pizza which was amazing. What let it down was when I checked the bill before paying there was a £1 "voluntary donation". When I queried this with the bar...More

The Wheatsheaf serves consistently good food, always freshly prepared and the prices are very reasonable. If you're visiting Whitby it is definitely worth a visit! The only drawback is the large dining room at the back of the pub which is lacking in atmosphere. We...More

A friend had recommended this place largely on the strength of its desserts (and you can have 3 mini desserts) but as I can't eat wheat, as always, I was a little sceptical. It is often hard to find a dessert at all without wheat,...More
