The Fox and Rabbit Inn is a traditional country pub located in the North York Moors National Park on the edge of Dalby Forest on the A169 Whitby to Pickering road. An idyllic destination for a relaxing stop off drink or meal.
Since July 2004 it has been owned by brothers Charles and Toby Wood who are enthusiastically involved in the day to day running of the pub as your host and chef.
Charles and Toby give their guests a warm reception by providing great service and high quality food and drink in comfortable surroundings. Patrons are welcome to enjoy anything from a pint of ale to a three-course meal while they appreciate the panoramic views across the North York Moors.
Experienced chef Dave has created a varied menu featuring fresh, simple ingredients, cooked to bring out their best qualities. When possible, vegetables, meat and fish are sourced locally. Using only the best produce, a varied and seasonal menu provides lunches and dinners to suit all tastes.
