We review our meal at The Marine, Whitby - Read what we thought....
We had a luscious evening meal at The Marine in Whitby...
The Marine, more formally known as 'The Marine Hotel', is one of the newer and smarter hotels in Whitby, located right on the harbourside.
There was an attractive and pervading scent of lilies, emanating from the several gorgeous flower arrangements on tables, windowsills and on the bar...
And some lovely quirky design touches; artwork, photos, and a very unusual 'faces' wallpaper in the back room...!
This is one of the most popular hotels in Whitby for eating out, so if you want to make sure of a table, reserve in advance - particularly for busy periods (Summer hols, weekends, live music nights) - or try dining early.
(You can now reserve a table online here)
Typical Menu Includes
Menus at The Marine Hotel in Whitby change daily, and aim to use locally sourced food where possible.
On the date of our visit, July 2011, the menu included:
Ian had lobster linguine - pasta and sauce with a lobster claw, and lots of big bits of lobster in the pasta, too.
I had my meal with a white wine spritzer with elderflower cordial - which I can heartily recommend - it was delicious!
Everything about the meal was gorgeous - such delicious, well-cooked food - sublime!
The asparagus was soft, tender and delicious too.
We could hardly refuse dessert after such a wonderful main course...
Although the restaurant was busy, the service was always very good, and the bar staff and waiting staff were extremely helpful, efficient and courteous.
Our food also came very quickly.
The lovely, relaxed but trendy-sophisticated ambience, stylish decor, great service, and truly delicious food all combined to make this a wonderful and special dining experience.
Rooms at The Marine Hotel in Whitby
We haven't stayed here, but the rooms at The Marine Hotel look some of the smartest and most elegant of the hotels in Whitby - very luxurious - although a little pricy!
...but they do look gorgeous, and all have a stunning sea-view!
There are 4 rooms, plus a room available at the Marine's sister business on the same street The Moon and Sixpence.
I'm putting these on my wish-list!
