Eating out

There are a plethora of eating out places in the local area and this list is by no means exhaustive but it is a list of the places that me and my family use and like


Just one offer in the village (pictured right) but its a good one.  Kaskane offers good honest bar food and good beer at very reasonable prices.  Its so popular that booking is essential but there is a decent beer garden if you just fancy a cold pint.

An easy walk from the village and served by buses from the square the next town Loftus has recently got some really good food options to go alongside the good selection of pubs that it has always enjoyed.

The Reunion Bar and Restaurant is a really great addition located in my old junior school. Its a big place, its dog friendly with an extensive menu and drinks offer and has a sports bar bit off the main bar. It is worth checking their website as they sometimes have bands on at weekends 

Micklow Taps is a second new addition in the market place and I really like it.  They serve sharing style tapas alongside a good cocktail menu and their own beers also brewed in the town.  You will be made just as welcome popping in for a pint as you would for food.


There are 9 other pubs in Loftus, most are dog friendly and all are worth a visit.

A mile past Loftus is the Tiger Inn in Easington with a good food offer


A really nice 4 mile walk along the cliffs or 10 minutes by car takes you to the Victorian seaside resort of Saltburn and a number of good eating out opportunities

The Seaview (pictured) is my particular favourite for a real treat, I might be biased because the owners are our friends but it was featured on the BBC’s Remarkable Places To Eat and the Times, Alfresco Dining Top 20 places to eat by the sea

Also in Saltburn
The Kings Grill – A nice place for a fillet steak
Coco and Rum – Modern Thai
The Ship Inn – Traditional bar food, great beer garden, good beer selection 
Allessi’s – Traditional Italian, good happy hour on pizza and pasta
Bar23 – Wood fired pizza, great beer selection and cocktails


A really nice 4 mile walk along the cliffs in the other direction or 10 minutes by car takes you to the fishing village of staithes

The Cod and Lobster (pictured) does bar food with a seafood emphasis, the outside tables are also a lovely place to enjoy a pint
If coffee and a scone or cake is more your thing then Dotty’s tea room is really good.  Other options are the George just along the street and the Captain Cook at the top but I haven’t tried either.   Another option if your in the car is the Ellerby a couple of miles past Staithes for good bar food and Sunday dinner


A drive or a bus but a very popular tourist destination with some really nice places to eat.  My favourite is the White Horse and Griffin with an extensive menu including steaks and fish complemented by a nice wine selection

If it’s Fish and chips you fancy then Trenchers and the Magpie are both really good options which won’t disappoint

There are too many other places to mention including a couple of good curry houses and loads of great pubs

North Yorkshire Moors

The coast is obviously a draw but Skinningrove is just a few miles from the moors and sometimes its nice to head inland and explore

I like the Kings Head Newton Under Rosebery, why not climb Roseberry Topping (in the background) to work up an appetite
The Jolly Sailors on the moor road towards Guisbrough is also good with a really nice tea time menu and a top Sunday lunch

My parents also recommend these ones, 
Wheatsheaf Inn Egton Bridge
Crown Hutton le hole
Fox at Roxby

bon appétit
