Pricey, Luke warm food, small portions, inferior quality not matching up to the surroundings. Will not go again. The best thing about it was the bought chutney.

Booked the white house for afternoon tea. Was distinctly average, the kind of afternoon tea you would be able to russle up yourself with a free hour on a Sunday. Only 3 types of sandwich were available: cheese, ham, and prawn. nothing any fancier than one ingredient and the scones came pre jammed and pre creamed so you didn't have... More

Always bring my family here when they visit. Good choice on the menu. Children's portions available. My nephew had spaghetti Bol from the children's menu, he enjoyed it so much he had a second portion, he's nearly 10. Would suggest an adult portion for the older kids as it is a small bowl geared more to under 8s. The rest... More

Excellent food, very clean, lovely Staff & made our two Border Terriers extremely welcome. The Haddock was huge & didn't think I was going to manage it, after a couple of rests, I saw it off :) Value for money, we were suitably impressed. Highly recommend a visit if you're looking for great wholesome food & beverages in a friendly... More

Had lunch here very recently; huge, beautifully cooked battered fish and chunky chips. Others in our group had gammon and roast of the day. Portions were generous. The food was hot and tasty, not 'gastro' but none the worse for that. We were able to get a window table with a great view of the golf course and the sea... More

We came here on a recommendaction from family, reluctantly leaving the fab atmosphere of Whitby town centre where we were staying. We booked in advance that day but upon arrival (a Saturday night at 8pm) we were told there was no room in the restaurant and were seated next to a group of rowdy young women in what I can... More

This was a surprise for me and a very welcome one; at my age birthdays are eminently forgettable! The White House is a large pub / hotel on the edge of Whitby on the West Cliff. It sits firmly above the sea and close to the golf course. We ate in the bar, plenty of customers but plenty of room.... More

Description
The White House boasts the Seaview Restaurant, our fresh, spacious and welcoming restaurant that is situated to take full advantage of the glorious views along the Yorkshire Coast towards Sandsend.
With its relaxed and friendly atmosphere, bright decor and wooden flooring, serves a fine selection of both light snacks and more substantial fayre. The restaurant also offers an extensive choice of innovative dishes and regional specialties, with an ingredient-led menu that is strong on fresh clean flavours and presentation, making the White House one of the more popular restaurants in the area.
In the summer months the views that are commanded by the White House are best enjoyed with a glass of wine sat in the garden looking out to sea.
The restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner for both residents and guests and reservations are recommended to avoid disappointment.
