Hi! Can anyone recommend a cracking Sunday dinner in Whitby? We are staying close to the harbour and would like it within walking distance. Many thanks in advance!
This thread from earlier in the year might provide some help (although some recommendations are out of the town so not walking distance for you):
In town, there are lots of traditional pubs in the “old town” which do lunches, but I’m not a big Sunday dinner person so can’t recommend from personal experience I’m afraid.
Would love to be able to say yes.Most pubs avoid them because it is easier to buy in from the wholesale suppliers and do the usual lasagne,chilli,scampi,chips, garlic bread,etc dressed up with a bit of salad, easy to prepare without any wasteage!The Board Inn, Dolphin,Jolly Sailors and George Hotel do Sunday lunches.The George advertises a carvery so your meat of choice may actually be from a joint.Have been disappointed so many times getting slices of cold meat and a gravy boat.On the outskirts of Whitby consider The Penny Hedge, The Stables @ Cross Butts and the White house.All £5-7 at the most in a taxi.The White House has nice views and is a gentle 20 mins scenic stroll back along the west cliff with views back to Sandsend and forwards to the Abbey,St Mary's Church and the harbour.Apart from the Jolly Sailors on the harbour side you will find details on their websites.So not an ideal response but have narrowed your options down a bit!If in doubt ask a local when you arrive
Friends just back from Whitby had Sunday lunch at the Fylingdales Inn close to Robin Hoods Bay.(£9 in a taxi.) They said the food was top quality and there was plenty of it including roasted carrots, parsnips and potatoes as well as the usual veg etc.Booking is not required but on busy days they can sell out as early as 3pm
