Fifty Shades of Bay: Part 10 - A Quarterdeck of Comfort in Boggle Hole

A Quarterdeck of Comfort in Boggle Hole

Welcome back to Fifty Shades of Bay, our ongoing exploration of the hidden gems that pepper the charming seaside village of Robin Hood's Bay. Today's adventure takes us to Boggle Hole and the Quarterdeck Cafe & Bar, a haven of comfort nestled within the Boggle Hole YHA. Keep your eyes peeled for Boggles.

A Secluded Escape in Boggle Hole

Tucked away in the delightful Boggle Hole, a short distance from Robin Hood's Bay's bustling dock, the Quarterdeck Cafe & Bar provides a tranquil escape for weary travelers and playful pups alike. Whether you're a family seeking a post-beach refuge, a solitary walker in need of refreshment, or simply someone who appreciates a warm and welcoming atmosphere, the Quarterdeck Cafe & Bar offers a haven that caters to most.

Indoor Cosiness and Outdoor Refreshment

Step inside the cafe and discover a haven of cosy seating, ideal for unwinding after a day of exploring the dramatic coastline or seeking shelter from the elements. But, for those yearning for a dose of fresh sea air, the Quarterdeck Cafe & Bar boasts a delightful outdoor seating area. Here, you can soak up the sunshine (or huddle by the crackling fireplace in cooler months) with your furry friend by your side – the Quarterdeck proudly welcomes canine companions both indoors and out. Here you can also learn all about the Boggles of Boggle Hole.

A Culinary Adventure for Every Taste Bud

The Quarterdeck Cafe & Bar doesn't disappoint when it comes to tantalizing your taste buds. They offer a tempting selection of light bites to appease smaller appetites, heartier meals to refuel after a coastal adventure, and of course, scrumptious cakes to satisfy your sweet tooth. Their licensed bar ensures there's a drink to quench every thirst, from steaming hot beverages to a refreshing selection of alcoholic options.

We highly recommend indulging in their Coffee & Cake Combo, the perfect pick-me-up after a bracing coastal walk. For a more substantial option, their Nachos are a guaranteed tastebud-pleaser. The menu boasts a wide variety to tantalize every palette, including:

  • Freshly Baked Cakes & Bakes
  • Pizzas to tantalise your taste buds
  • Juicy Burgers to satisfy your cravings
  • Classic Dishes for familiar comfort food
  • Delicious Side Orders to complete your meal
  • Decadent Desserts to indulge your sweet tooth
  • A Dedicated Kids Menu to keep the little ones happy

Beyond the Cafe: Exploring Boggle Hole's Enchanting Delights

Boggle Hole itself is a treasure trove for explorers of all ages. The rockpools teem with fascinating marine life, waiting to be discovered by curious eyes. For the budding paleontologists, there's a chance to unearth hidden treasures amongst the seaweed in the form of fascinating fossils. Don't miss out the intriguing Boggle Cave. Feeling energetic and seeking further adventures? Pick up The Cleveland Way and embark on a scenic hike towards the charming seaside town of Whitby or the dramatic cliffs of Ravenscar. Alternatively, you can tackle the climb back up to the Cinder Track, a disused railway line that has been transformed into a scenic walking and cycling path.

Finding Your Way and Parking

Reaching the Quarterdeck requires a bit of an adventure, adding to its charm. You can access it via three routes:

  • Take a walk along Robin Hood's Bay beach
  • By a walk along and a descent down the steep steps that lead from The Cleveland Way.
  • Navigate the steep road leading down from The Cinder Track.

Parking is available at the top of the Boggle Hole road, but keep in mind it's public and paid parking.

So, the next time you find yourself exploring the beautiful Robin Hood's Bay coastline, don't miss the chance to set sail for a relaxing and delightful experience at Boggle Hole and the Quarterdeck Cafe & Bar. With its warm hospitality, delicious food, stunning location, and the promise of further adventures on your doorstep, it's the ideal place to unwind, refuel, and create lasting memories.
