Station Inn

New Quay Road Whitby YO21 1DH

The nearest pub to the train station (very handy for the holiday steam train services), the Station Inn also happens to be the best real ale pub in town. It's a resolutely welcoming place, packed to the rafters with Morris dancers and the like during the annual August folk festival, and you're guaranteed a good pint with a ridiculous name whenever you visit (there are up to eight real ales on at any one time). There's lots of live music here throughout the year too – beards and sandals yes, but also some belting blues and rock.
