After our visit to the Pheasant/Star Inn with Pat and Tony we drove to Whitby via Pickering. Whitby is slowly changing and Tony had spotted a possibility for accomodation if the Globetroffers decided on a group outing to Whitby. Reported in the Yorkshire Post “The Albany Hotel” looked quite classy and for a group, paricularly out of season, very good value. However finding it became a lost treasure hunt even after much walking, not having the address and a goose chase advised by the local tourist board didn’t help. On a positive note we saw a part of Whitby that is both elegant and quiet, just a stones throw from the harbour front!
We would not be true Globetroffers if we hadn’t have popped into a restaurant and as P&T had never quite managed to get to the renowned Greens we decided to call in for a light lunch. We were the only one’s in but Chris the very helpful waiter did advise booking for evenings as it a popular establishment even out of season.
Their signature dish is Chilli battered squid so T and G had starter portions, the girls opted for starter portions of Moules Mariniere. All I that needs to be said is WE ARE OFF BACK and recommend everyone else should.
Blackboard menu, hung York Hams(for sale), wood and stainless steel very French Brasserie nice ambience.
A glass each of Suavignon for P&T and Rose for D.
