There are many places to eat in Filey some of which we have identified below.

  • We like the San Marco but you will need to book it at least day before. There is a happy meal slot from 5-6pm if you are interested (it will be busy with kids though). Telephone number 01723 515457
  • Also for a great meal, not cheap, there is the Downcliffe Hotel (good coffee and cakes during day) at the south end of the promenade.
  • Corner Cafe & Restaurant on Station Road.
  • Gold River Chinese restaurant on Mitford Street bottom end towards sea, just past the Star Inn. They also do take away but higher price than the New Kam San.
  • Bistro 22 has a very interesting menu and is bigger than it looks from outside. Located on Murray Street.
  • Victoria Court, The Crescent.
  • Bella Italia, Mitford Street.

All these restaurants are in easy walking distance from Slipway Cottage. We enjoy walking back round by the promenade on the way back, head towards the Crescent and go down Crescent Hill. There are street lights so it can be done in the dark too.

Whilst there is a huge quantity of places to eat if you are wanting to drive we have identified two that we enjoy.

  • The Copper Horse at Seamer ( which will need booking.
  • Or you could try the The Royal Oak in Humanby.

Take aways

  • New Kam San chinese take away on Murray Street, menu on coffee table.
  • Fish and Chips is obviously the delicacy in Filey and the best, in our opinion, are those from Dicky Bees at the top end of town, on Mitford Street. It is only a 5 minute walk from the cottage. They will do Haddock with the skin off, as long as you ask on the way in, otherwise skin on is the default. NOTE all Fish & Chip shops close early at 6:30 in Filey. Very strange.
  • Hungry Toms for Pizza, Burgers, Jacket Potato etc. Murray Street.
  • The Deli on Belle Vue street is a good place to get food, but you need to plan ahead as it is only open during the day.
  • Filey Tandoori, Station Avenue.

Pubs & Bars

  • Bonhommes Bar, Royal Crescent Court.
  • Royal Crescent Vaults, South Crescent Road.
  • Station, Church Street (often live music).
  • Three Tuns, Murray Street (serves food).
  • Coble Landing Bar, just round the corner on Coble Landing.
  • Imperial, Hope Street.
  • Foords, Queen Street – up the steps behind the cottage.
  • Belle Vue, Belle Vue Street.

Cafe & snacks

There are many tea rooms and cafes in Filey, too many to try over a single week, here are a selection of the ones we enjoy. As you can see we spend a lot of time drinking coffee and just letting the world go by.

  • Bakers cafe on the Coble Landing serves hot and cold snacks, great for a Bacon Butty if you don't feel like cooking yourselves – also other places on the Coble Landing for Fish & Chips, Crab and general food.
  • Downcliffe Hotel, South end of the promenade does home made cakes and quality coffees. Sit outside and watch the world go by.
  • Cafe in the Country Park, up the steps at the South end of Beach Road has a full menu all day. Situated next to the boating lake, adventure play and crazy golf it is more for the family orientated.
  • Bramwells tea room, Belle Vue Street is a nice quaint spot though quite small and often full. They do brilliant cakes and a good selection of soups.
  • Bistro22 on Murray street does everything from elaborate lunches to simple coffee. If you are wanting a long lunch rather than a snack this is the place for you.
  • Gibbys Cafe on Hope street is very good and off the main walking streets so is often more quiet than others
  • Frothies on Union Street has proper coffee and great cakes.
