Situated on the harbourside, this is a long-standing local landmark. In 1893, it was an ‘old established commercial inn’. In 1823, it was ‘a posting and commercial house’. The Royal Mail coach to York left the inn every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. The service had operated from The Angel since its inception in 1795. The Diligence coach (to Scarborough) and the Union coach (to Sunderland) also operated from the inn.
