Danny O'Revey left this review about The Duke Of York Inn

Excellent setting at bottom of the steps and with views over the harbour, there are crooked beams and the lot. This means it is very popular so you would need to get there early to get a harbour view, even out of season.

Gone a little foody to cash in , but still bags of character.

Two real ales - Black Sheep and Abbot. Also lots of whisky.

With a better ale choice this could be tops.

Occupying a prime position in the old part of Whitby at the end of a picturesque cobbled street and at the foot of the famous 199 steps leading up to the Abbey, is The Duke of York.

The interior consists of traditional seating, fake black ceiling beams, some exposed brickwork and leaded windows and curtains. It’s a pleasant single bar pub with several adjoining areas and decorated with lots of photos and prints on a seafaring / maritime theme.

It’s evidently trying to cater for a broad range of customers, which inevitably means that, at lunchtime, the emphasis is on providing meals – normally fish and chips – to the many visitors to this picturesque seaside town. There's the usual rather impersonal atmosphere at that time of day.

4-5 beers were on which, on my visit, included Copper Dragon, Black Sheep, Deuchars IPA and GK Abbott. Prices are on the high side. There’s also an extensive selection of whiskies.

This is a nice enough place for a pint – but do try and visit outside of peak periods, when, if you’re lucky, you’ll get a window seat, from where you can take advantage of the splendid harbour views.

Mike Hewitt i agree with you we had the same problem when we lived in the Isle of Man and Blackpool we had lots of visitors now we live in Glossop Derbyshire not many at all. This is another Whitby gem of a pub
