Private Dining Rooms

At Raithwaite Sandsend, we have all sorts of private dining rooms and suites that can be cleverly transformed to create a memorable private dining experience and stylish celebration. Set 2.5 miles from Whitby, our hotel is just the place for a private dinner party or small gathering. And our specially curated, sustainable menus at the recently-renovated Restaurant and Bar 1822 make the most of our surroundings: freshly-picked veg from the Dales, just-caught seafood from the Yorkshire coast, and mushrooms and herbs foraged from our very own grounds.

Private Dining and Party Rooms

Take your pick from our variety of private dining venues at Raithwaite Sandsend and we’ll transform it into your perfect location for a family get together or group celebration. Whether it’s a private dining room for a cosy lunch with close family overlooking the terrace, or a full-on shindig with friends, we can rearrange our venues to accommodate your needs, whatever the occasion.

Our smaller suites are the perfect place for parties of up to 20 guests, and for slightly bigger groups we can create a private room that can seat up to 40 – ideal for a wedding party.

Events and Special Occasions

From graduations and special birthdays to anniversaries and family parties, we’re able to set up our dining rooms so you can celebrate in style. And you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to dining options: five-course feasts, special buffets, and canapés made from seasonal ingredients – we can source whatever you like. We also offer a range of freshly-mixed cocktails, as well as a wide selection of wines and Champagnes to suit your private party.


We’re in Sandsend, just 10 minutes from Whitby and 7 miles from Staithes – where Captain Cook famously learned to navigate the seas – a remarkable coastal setting between the North York Moors and the Yorkshire coast. Raithwaite Sandsend is known for its warm service, elegant rooms and delicious food, showcasing the best local produce from Whitby and Yorkshire.
