user reviews of Waiting Room, Whitby

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

My trip top Whitby was primarily for sightseeing. But, I did manage to get to the Waiting Room at the station for a swift couple of halves before boarding the North Yorks Moor Railway train back to Pickering. This micropub on the platform has limited opening hours and wasn't opening until 4 yesterday. It's a fairly tiny place that is clearly very popular. I arrived at 4pm to find it already quite full. Customers must have been queuing at the doors. The ale range was Durham Maltstar, North Riding Sticky Toffee Porter, Revolutions The Final Countdown, Great Yorkshire Flying Herbert, Lords Maid of Orleans & Bad Company 02_19. I was drawn to the Porter. But, I decided to go for cider instead, with a couple I hadn't had on the list of 14. The full list was Gwynt y Ddraig Haymaker, Sandford Orchards Fanny's Bramble, Thistly Cross Whisky Cask, Orchard Revival Heritage, Dudda's Tun Bone Dry, Mayfayre Cider & Perry, Lilley's Bee Sting Perry, Cherries & Berries, Mango Cider & Lemon and Ginger Cider, Weston's Rosie's Pig & Rhubarb Cider, Abrahall's Lily The Pink & Snail's Bank Very Perry. Most of the customers seemed to be regulars and the owner was certainly very knowledgeable. No children are allowed inside. The walls have railway memorabilia, whilst there were many pumpclips to peruse. A good conclusion to my first trip to Whitby. I will be back!

If you like real ale then it's a brilliant place. I do so it was, but for anyone wanting the usual national chain fare then perhaps not.

Pleasant enough micropub in Whitby station. Locals are friendly enough though the ale was fair rather than good. Doesn't usually open till 4.
