Fresh seafood by the sea near Whitby

Overlooking the North Sea just north of Whitby, Estbek House is perfectly positioned to source its materials from the chilly waters out front and the rolling moors behind. It all takes place in a handsome Regency house that operates as a restaurant with rooms of considerable charm. Start with pan-seared scallops (from Shetland, but they grow `em good up there) with pea purée and crisp Parma ham, and then lemon sole, expertly filleted and served with watercress sauce (or another sauce if you prefer) and dauphinoise potatoes and mixed veg. There's fish pie, too, plus local fillet steak glazed with Shiraz, and, for dessert, plum soup with ginger sorbet.
