The bar of the White Lodge Hotel, aka the Chart Room, is open to non-residents from 12 noon-11pm. The bar features superb views across Filey Bay and down The Crescent. You can take your drink into the garden or the lounge bar, whose bay window offers some of the best coastal views anywhere.
The quality of the drink offering marks the White Lodge out, not just in Filey, but probably along the entire coastline. The wines are not slavishly from the New World or stubbornly from the Old. Whilst a New Zealand Viognier maybe present, you won’t have to look too hard to find a reliable claret.
There is a good selection of single malt Scotch whiskies, plus a decent smattering from further afield. Of course, gin lovers are not ignored and whilst the Lodge can’t boast five hundred gins, the ones they have picked reflect extensive research!
From Taittinger to Timothy Taylors; there’s something for all tastes at the White Lodge.
