An intimate restaurant in Sandsend, Whitby

From fish caught just off Sandsend beach to delicious local cheese dishes, the humble pie and mash and pizzas made with freshly-baked bread and herbs foraged from our gardens, you’ll be hard-pressed to make a choice from our carefully curated seasonal menu.

Our tables are accommodating for groups of various sizes and our extensive cocktail menu means you’ll be sure of a fantastic atmosphere, whatever the occasion.

Situated only three miles from the popular fishing town of Whitby and just a short drive from the North Yorkshire moors, Raithwaite Sandsend is proud to champion local suppliers and has some of the best fish dishes in Whitby, alongside vegetarian options and a variety of other dishes.

Vegetarian Dishes

Eating out as a vegetarian can be difficult, however, at The Restaurant we are proud of our extensive range of vegetarian dishes. We are big believers that seasonal food does not have to be just for meat-eaters and at The Restaurant vegetarians are catered for with an extensive menu that evolves with the seasons.

Delicious Seafood

Fish dishes are a coastal necessity, and not just from traditional fish and chip shops! Choose from a variety of fresh seafood dishes, such as sea bass with seasonal vegetables and crab linguine as well as the classic battered fish and chips.

From The Grill

Our resident butcher Andrew Radford visits the famous Malton market every week to source the finest produce for our grill. All our steaks are made to your specifications and served with chips and a sauce of your choice. Sides are also available which include minted potatoes, triple-cooked chips, garden salad and roasted courgette.

The Bar

With beautiful views overlooking the sweeping grounds of Raithwaite estate, Bar 1822 is perfect for sipping on a well-deserved post-walk drink or relaxing with a post-dinner cocktail. With modern furnishings and an extensive drinks cabinet, Bar 1822 is open throughout the day and into the evening.
