AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu
Restaurant menu
Open all year
Dog friendly

A whitewashed coaching inn that’s welcoming and dog-friendly. Affectionately known as the G&D, it’s full of charm – from the log fire in the bar, the collection of sporting paraphernalia, to the fountain in the sheltered courtyard – and there are five well-kept, hand-pulled real ales on offer, including an in-house brew. At lunchtime, enjoy a baguette or panini in the bar or, if you fancy contemporary decor and leather seats, Knight’s Restaurant's menu offers a great selection of fish dishes – the ‘scaddock’, that’s a combination of golden wholetail scampi and battered haddock; and Whitby Bay thermidor are just two. For meat eaters how about slow-braised shank of Yorkshire lamb; Holme farm venison steak; or a pot of beef lasagne? If you have a sweet tooth, don’t pass by their Cadbury’s tuck shop cheesecake. The traditional Sunday carvery is hugely popular.
