Green’s of Whitby

13 Bridge Street,


Tel: 01947 600284

Has one of those enviable, picturesque settings, nestled close to the busy fishing harbour of this charming, bustling coastal town in Whitby.

Rob & Emma Green have created a winning combination at Green’s Restaurant & Bistro by offering two distinct dining experiences – a buzzy Bistro atmosphere downstairs, and the more formal – but equally welcoming – ‘Upstairs at Green’s’.

As National Seafood Chef of the Year, Rob offers a menu that is attentive to the surrounding bounty from the coast, and with his daily contact with the best local seafood suppliers and skippers of the local trawlers, he can ensure a menu that boasts the best of ‘The Catch of the day’

Prime local meats and game are also a speciality, and by making the most of the landscape as his larder, with its abundance of fresh local produce, means that Rob changes the menu frequently to offer you “the best of the day”. This has been instrumental in Green’s Restaurant & Bistro being recognised as not only one of the finest restaurants in Whitby, but one of the finest restaurants in North Yorkshire.

It’s hard to separate fact from fiction in this tea room set up as a retreat for a famous Londoner to escape up north. The fact is their coffee and cakes are first class, with scone and clotted cream for less than £3.50. Great coffee. A nice range of smoothies with names like Moriarty and Mrs Hudson, a good selection of sandwiches, including nice vegetarian options (hummus & grated carrot; roast vegetables)
