The Marine

13 Marine Parade Whitby YO21 3PR

This end of the harbour is under the thumb of the stylish Marine Hotel, which has its own bar and restaurant on the premises as well as the informal Moon & Sixpence brasserie just down the way. Here, the style is cruise liner chic, with a piano bar-cum-restaurant that makes great use of big windows that face on to the harbour. Jazz and mellow sounds tinkle away – some weekends the baby grand is given an airing – while for food we're talking about things like oysters, crab claws with a chilli dip, roasted sea bass or shellfish linguine. A great range of breakfasts is served until noon too (full monty, eggs florentine, kedgeree, Whitby kippers etc), making this a brunch place par excellence.
