The Wheatsheaf Inn
You might get lost searching out this idyllic pub so here's some help. Egton is close to Whitby off the A169 north-west of Grosmont. From Pickering, turn off the A169 to Grosmont and Egton. That should do it. The inn is a traditional stone-built inn, situated in a delightful part of North Yorkshire in the small village of Egton, just 5 miles from the sea. The owners of this Freehouse aim to promote a welcoming atmosphere amidst the beams and fireplace. There is an emphasis on attentive service, guests receive good hospitality and excellent value for money. In the bar the original character has been maintained. A good place to sample the guest beers available. There is accommodation Rating, the small, cosy bedrooms have been furnished in keeping with the style of an old country inn. The restaurant has stone walls, oak beams and attractively laid tables which create a good setting for dinner. A varied ? la carte menu offers a good selection of starters, including several seafood choices herring/fresh sardines/fish pate and smoked trout. Main courses range from country pies to international dishes such as Cajun chicken. There is also a special dish-of-the-day. A good selection of bar meals is available. Nearby the surrounding North York Moors National Park provides ample scope for walking, fishing, riding, canoeing, sailing and trips on steam trains. Robin Hood's Bay, Staithes and Whitby, with its abbey, are a short drive away.
Visited October 2002. Our room was excellent and good value ?55 pounds per night. Beer, food and ambience excellent. Need to book early during the shooting season. My wife and I stayed three nights and enjoyed every moment. Current real on tap - Black Sheep. (David Jenkins)
A delightful Yorkshire Moors inn, Good bedrooms and a real local pub feel. New owners past 12 months but experienced licensees. Gets very busy lunch and dinner so wise to book if you want a sit down meal. Was being updated last time we visited and is improving with each time we call in. We travel up from Herts several times a year and would not go elsewhere, A class act. Food is outstanding by local pub standards, we have had better meals there than in many rated local eating places. Guest beer changes regularly, Good middle of the road wine list, outstanding Yorkshire hospitality and of course stunning scenery. Visit, stay and enjoy! (Richard Tyminski 2002)

I would like to say that I visited the Wheatsheaf Inn Egton, Whitby UK for the first time from Australia, I was fortunate enough to stay with some friends living in Norton and Settrington, I totally loved the atmosphere the food was superb and the staff friendly. I will be recommending this inn to my friends when I return on my visit to the UK again. (23/05/07)
