Royal George

The Royal George

Serving lunch and dinner The Royal George is a fine choice of eatery for those visiting Staithes. It is located at the bottom of the village and is small but perfectly formed. It serves real ales, great food and all just 100 yards from the sea. Whether you are looking for a quick bite, leisurely lunch, or evening meal this could be the place for you.

Seating up to 50 people, The Royal George serves lunch and dinner on a walk in or reservation basis. Their menu includes a wide range of dishes, many of which are less than £10. We recommend the steak pie or crab sandwich which is made from locally sourced crab. They also cater for vegetarians and those with special dietary needs should you require these options.

The Cod And Lobster

The Cod and Lobster is a firm favourite dining venue with both locals and tourists alike. It stands at the bottom of Church Street overlooking the harbour, and is commonly referred to, by those who know it, as the last defence from the ravages of the North sea!

Locals will tell you that on occasion one may have to wait for a retreating wave before making a dash into the bar to avoid getting wet feet. Once inside, however, this ‘dash’ is more than worth it as you are met with spectacular views. Cozying up to the blazing fire you can watch bobbing boats through the window, or maybe even catch sight of a full moon.

The Cod and Lobster menu is full of traditional fayre sourced from local suppliers. This includes, of course, freshly caught cod and sumptuous crab for sandwiches. They also run a breakfast and childrens menu, as well as daily specials. We recommend the kebab (prawn, salmon, cod, scallops) if you fancy seafood, and the 12 ounce sirloin with stilton sauce for all those meat lovers.

The Captain Cook Inn

Sitting at the top of Staithes on the Cleveland way, The Captain Cook Inn offers a varied menu within the bar, elegant dining room, or al fresco, weather permitting. They serve all freshly prepared food that has been sourced locally where possible. They also cater for most dietary requirements including vegetarian and wheat free alternatives.

Known to locals as simply ‘The Cook’, The Captain Cook Inn offers a warm and family friendly environment. If you listen closely whilst dining there you may hear fisherman’s tales of their daily catch, some of which you may be eating. We recommend the steak and ale pie, and also Sunday roasts which locally are legendary. Be warned, however, that hearty appetites are a must when eating here.
