The North York Moors are famed for their beauty and, as the inspiration for such classics of literature as Wuthering Heights, have attracted many to experience its untameable wildness. No place is better for a long walk and, with a great selection of traditional pubs and inns along the way, a long walk could take all day before returning to a friendly and warming fire at a cosy Scarborough hotel.

The Blacksmiths Arms

This public house oozes tradition and prides itself as one of the last remaining authentic country inns. It is also the place where The Queen and Prince Philip had their first ever pub lunch in 2010 alongside 60 other guests, so if it is good enough for royalty the owners hope it will be good enough for their patrons too!

The Hayburn Wyke Inn

Set between Whitby and Scarborough this pub makes for a great stop off along coastal walks. The 18th century inn is set close to a secluded cove that has its own waterfall gently cascading over onto the beach, making it popular with Yorkshire ramblers.

Bar 7

This sophisticated bar serving cocktails, wines and beers overlooks the River Esk and is set within the Quayside Building making it perfect for evening strolls in Whitby, though it is a great choice at any time of day, serving fair trade coffee with the best of views; it’s a perfect spot for a night out during a stay in the area at luxury Whitby hotels.

Bryherstones Country Inn

This traditional family-owned pub provides the best of Yorkshire experiences, whether you’re new to the area or a local, all are treated to the most warming service. Located in Cloughton in Scarborough, it makes for a great stop off during walks in the area, where visitors will be welcomed with a refreshing pint of their cask conditioned ale.
