Village Pub of the Year

Congratulations to the Fox & Hounds at Dalehouse, which has been awarded the Village Pub of the Year by the Whitby Gazette. The Fox & Hounds is 900 yards, or a 20 minute stroll, from Dunsley in Staithes (, and serves fabulous food and excellent beer in a cosy bar, a sofa-and-fire corner or the little restaurant.
 We get lots of enquiries from guests wanting news on where they can drink real ale in or near Staithes. Fox & Hounds is high on the list, but we also have the Captain Cook Inn, which has new owners, and is famed for its Real Ale Festivals ( and is a CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) favourite. In the lower village, 50 metres from Dunsley, is the Royal George which serves real ale and bar meals by an open fire; and of course the Cod & Lobster on the harbour which offers real ale and pub food including bistro-style meals, with a sea view.
 Plus, for foodies, we have an award-winning seafood outlet, a brilliant butcher (who also sells homemade preserves), the Cleveland Bistro with its new owners Rob and Sharon, who are pushing the boat out on local produce and even local beer, brewed by Dunsley's neighbours!
 So, Staithes for beer and food: you can't go wrong. See you down there!
