We visited a few times for drinks but only ate here once at lunch time. It is very hard to get a table here but we did manage it by arriving very early. We just had sandwiches with chips but it was delicious. The atmosphere in the pub is great and the bar staff are lovely. We wouldnt hesitate to... More

We ate here a few times when we stayed in Staithes. The food was very good, wonderful battered onion rings! And very large portions. Helpful staff turned the music down on request. Thanks.

Nice pub, dog friendly down stairs, bit pricey, had better food elsewhere a bit more reasonably priced, but good service and friendly staff.

Reasonable value. Hot and tasty food, but can't say there was much atmosphere. Service was OK. 'very good' because of the food - 'average' would have been a bit harsh.

I absolutely loved my stay in Staithes! It is very hard for anywhere in Staithes to not be "central", but the Royal George is in a great location 2 minutes from the harbour. The staff were very welcoming, and went out of their way to get me a table at dinnertime despite the pub being very very busy. My room... More

Staying in Staithes over Easter. Pub pretty packed on Maundy Thursday evening but when we said we'd like to eat they said they'd let us know when the next table was available which it soon was. I had scampi (local from Whitby) and chips - guilty pleasure - really good chips - and my husband had the fish cakes. Very... More

A great place for a pub lunch with a good menu, friendly service, reasonable prices and a lovely atmosphere. Our order was taken quickly and served in a timely fashion, the staff are excellent and we'll certainly call again in the future.

A traditional local pub. You must try the fish and chips, a little pricey but well worth it and a good atmosphere too.

Booked online for one day/night we arrived at this pub in the cobbled street just short of the harbour in Staithes to a warm welcome, great pint (or 2) and really tasty, wholesome food. Very friendly, helpful, cheery staff in an old, comfortable pub. Our room was nicely decorated, very clean and fitted out with what you would expect today.... More

We stayed here for one night while visiting Staithes and it was a good choice. Friendly, realaxed and with good offerings for both food and beer. Our room was comfortable and clean. The bed was comfortable and the light traffic outside meant a good night's sleep was enjoyed. Breakfast was also very good and helped on its way by the... More

This is our favourite pub in Staithes, and we'd love to review it :) We have just completed our 2 new en-suite rooms with tea & coffee facilities & wake up to a full English breakfast
