This place is beautiful and the food was delicious. My only grumble is that the staff were not particularly attentive or very happy actually!

The moon and sixpence was busy but that’s what made the service all the more impressive. We were shown to our table and had drinks within 5 minutes, our order taken within 10 and the food arrived 20 minutes after that. We both had the Brisket Curry which was packed with meat and was really tasty. We had a pudding each and that was great too. I would definitely eat there again as the food was lovely, the staff attentive and friendly and the place had a great atmosphere.

On our drive up to Whitby we decided to look for somewhere for lunch. We all decided on something different other than your usual chippy. My son had the fish and chips which was delicious the batter was beautiful lots of firm fish. He had it with bacon fries. My daughter had a chicken sandwich with garlic fries which were amazing. My husband and I both had burgers which were fab. The place is lovely and quirky and the staff very friendly and helpful. We will be attending the scooter Rally next year as usual and I’ve already said to my my girlfriends we are defo coming for lunch and cocktails 🍸

The food was excellent lots of choice ! Plenty of vegetarian and Vegan options on the menu. I asked for something that wasn’t on the menu but the chef was happy to make it!
