Could you run this pub in Whitby?

The Elsinore Inn is a traditional community pub at the heart of Whitby, North Yorkshire. The pub welcomes its customers into an open plan trading area that has a feel that typifies what Whitby is all about. With its oak panels, cask marque ales, sea faring traditions and blue collar industry heritage it’s truly a home from home for locals. The pub is infamous for its entertainment offer including live music that brings the pub to life, making it the place to be on a Saturday night.

The pub is incredibly unique for being a hub for the goth scene, with it being a crucial part of the Whitby Goth Weekend for the past 26 years. The first ever ‘Gothic meet up’ originated at the pub and brings tens of thousands to the area annually, all of these people hold the pub close to their hearts.


We have exciting investment plans to give the pub internal and external redecoration that will enhance the pubs current traditional, homely feel.
