COVID-19

Following the recent restrictions of COVID-19 Middle Earth Tavern will be re-opening Saturday 4th July 10am. We have been working hard putting safety measures in place, to keep our customers and staff safe. 

At this current time we will be serving wet sales only.  No need to book just walk in we have plenty of room. We ask all customers to continue with the social distancing measurements in place, also be aware there may be a 10 minute wait for a table so our staff can thoroughly clean down all tables and chairs for the next customers.

Welcome to Middle Earth Tavern and Cirdan’s Harbourside Grill( restaurant temporarily closed).
Eat, drink and stay with us – You’ll not find a warmer Whitby welcome!
Our stunning harbourside location is mesmerising in Summer and its roaring log fires in Winter offer respite on the coldest of days. We are dog friendly in our down stairs bar only.
After tidal surges devastated the downstairs bar we renovated and haven’t looked back since.


Through excellent customer service, a superb drink selection and welcoming atmosphere our popularity soared and in 2017 we started serving food with the opening of Cirdan’s Harbourside Grill. Restaurant temporarily closed!
In addition we offer clean, comfortable accommodation in our newly refurbished en suite rooms at an attractive price.
