About Rusty Shears

Rusty Shears has become a must visit venue when coming to Whitby. It boasts home made cakes and pastries, speciality teas, coffees and over 150 gins. We serve from breakfast through to late afternoon and at weekends, Rusty Shears hosts Bistro evenings where our chefs are given a free rein to produce an interesting but exciting menu for our guests.

Rusty Shears is slightly off the beaten track being located in Silver Street which is small street behind Skinner Street. The interior is quirky with lots of Victoriana and interesting curios.

During the summer months, we also have our courtyard which is set in a mediterranean style with tables and umbrellas under our own fig tree which provides fruit for our gin infusion.  Guests can while away the hours here chatting and people watching whilst sampling our gins or craft beers

Food and Drink whatever the time of day

Whether you are coming to Rusty Shears for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner or just a drink in the Coach House we have something for you.


Rusty's Restaurant

The main area of Rusty's with the cake/pastry bar taking centre stage. Done in a slightly off centre Victorian theme but nothing matches. Cool in summer and cosy in winter.


The Courtyard

This is a unique area. Sheltered from the wind and cold, the Courtyard has been likened to a Mediterranean cafe with coloured parasols, a fig tree and various herbs/garnishes growing free.

A great place for a snack, maybe sample our gin menu or have a cool beer.


The Coach House bar

A relaxing bar/pub area where we serve our specialist Gins, Craft Beers and other grown-up drinks. The menu in the Coach House is basic sharing fare to complement our drinks menu.
