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. Table bookings can be taken from Thursday 2nd July, due to limited numbers walk-in customers are also welcome but not guaranteed a table. Bookings can be taken via telephone and Middle Earth Tavern  Facebook messenger. 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. 


Middle Earth Tavern has been offering a warm Whitby welcome to visitors and local alike for many years.
Our stunning harbour side location is mesmerising in Summer and its roaring log fires in Winter offer respite on the coldest of days.
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.
