Just off Junction 49 of the A1(M), and with a fish-centric menu belying its landlocked locale, this “eclectic” thatched pub has been doing the business for years: the flag-festooned interior is “cosy and intimate”, while it is “gorgeous in summer to sit outside” – and it’s also well worth an overnight to enjoy the “quirky” themed bedrooms. Its rating for food is becoming ever-more borderline though, with critics saying that “while prices soar ever skywards, quality doesn’t”. Overall though, this is still assessed (just) as “good pub cooking” with “wonderful seafood”.

“In a lovely location with fantastic food and a great menu”, this “old favourite” festooned with bric-a-brac has a focus on fresh seafood – although you’d have to cross the moors to reach the closest stretch of coast. Top Tip: “stay in one of the amazing themed rooms with private hot tub”.

It’s “worth a trip from Hull or York for the variety and quality of fish alone” at this “wonderful quirky place”, just off the A1, crammed with bunting and bric-a-brac. The “fabulous” plates (from the catch delivered daily from Hartlepool) comes “in Yorkshire sizes”; if you overindulge, repair to the Crab Manor hotel next door.

“An eccentric place serving wonderful food” – off the A1, a “quirky” thatched inn whose interior is packed with bric-à-brac, and which is one of the best-known pubs in the country, never mind the county. Foodwise, the speciality is fish: “exceptionally fresh fare, delivered with genuinely warm hospitality and professional service”.
