Modernised local pub, refurbed after bad flooding, lots of brick & light wood and a fantastic feature fire place, a little bit brash but very well done and the beer is excellent. Spiral staircase I tink goes up to a restaurant area that overlooks the river. Light airy pub that is well worth a visit, though refurb works continue.

2 real ales, was actually the 2nd best on my Whitby visit, behind the Station Inn.

A white rendered building - it could date from any century from 16th onwards. You step down to it from the street, which makes me think it is pretty old. I was worse for the wear when Mrs Staal and I turned up. It was my birthday and the good lady wife was accompanying me on a Whitby crawl. She was sober. I wasn't.

Internally, the room was rectangular in shape with the bar at the right hand 'short' end. They had one pale real ale on, Copper Dragon Golden Pippin. The second tap was labelled up for Copper Dragon Black Gold, one of my favourites, but unfortunately off that night. They had the usual lagers and smoothpours. I also had some of the Theakston's Dark Smooth, which was nice.

The seating is centred on benches around the wall.

I found this pub perfectly acceptible. I could have spent more time here and would definitely add it to my Whitby 'regular' drinks stops. Mrs Staal also liked the pub and she is hard to please!
