Will Larter left this review about The Board Inn

This is a tourist honey pot, in a superb location at the foot of the 199 steps which lead down from the abbey. I remember coming here on my first visit to Whitby in 2002, when I persuaded the barman to mix me a Theakston's XB (one-third Old Peculier, two-thirds Theakstons Best Bitter), and it's still a Theakstons pub today. Beers on the bar on my latest visit were Old Peculiar, XB (itself: ready-mixed, you might say) and Lightfoot, plus a guest from Caledonian. The beer was fine - I had Old Peculier this time - but the background music was a bit loud. Other than that, it was a fairly quiet part of the day (it was Mothering Sunday, but the earlier large crowds had dissipated and it was a very cold evening) and the pub was relatively comfortable. The landlord bade me a cheery farewell as I left to tackle those 199 steps up to the youth hostel.

A little more basic than the Duke of York next door, and more space because of it, which is handy with its location at the bottom of 199 steps and bustling Church Street.

2 standard front rooms, the back room extends out with good views of the river & harbour.

It is slightly old fashioned & ripe for a refurb but is a good contrast to next door and a nice all round place.

Three Theakstons beers including Peculiar

Harbour side pub with views and at bottom of the 199 steps so an unenviable location, the beer is good but sadly limited perhaps through a mix of tourist expectations and the dead hand of a pubco. Front bar with three pulls and view of the steps, there's rear and downstairs dining areas with harbour views. Food is a bit ping and fling but good enough and reasonably priced.
