Middle Earth Tavern

Certificate of Excellence


Certificate of Excellence
The Middle Earth Tavern and Cirdan's Harbourside Grill is a beautiful harbourside venue just a short walk out of Whitby town center. The sunsoaked beer garden leads into the main bar, with a genuine stove fire and a selection of popular draught ales and a selection of flavourful hand pulls to get comfortable with, along with complimentary nibbles at our tables! Along with the main bar is the back room with a darts board and a pool table for those with a more competitive nature. Upstairs is the restaurant Cirdan's Harbourside Grill which provides a range of meals including local produce from the award winning Radford's Butchers as well as fresh catch directly from traditional Whitby fishing boats to your plate! Lastly the Middle Earth Tavern provides guest accommodation for up to 3 rooms, all rooms are en suite Doubles and are provided with a complimentary breakfast box filled with yummy goodies for you to enjoy!

Great pub, friendly staff, open fire but spoilt by bad language locals sat at the bar. Unnecessary for holidaying couples wanting a quiet drink. Shame. We like the pub a lot but the f word dominates the conversation. The owners need to address the problem. We're not prudes but
