The Black Horse is proud to support local charities. Although dogs are not allowed in our accommodation, they are more than welcome in both our bars where you'll find water bowls and dog treats available. Please help us support Whitby and Scarborough Dog Rescue by purchasing one of our Good Dog walk Guides, available for just £1. This has 8 local walks and a list of other dog friendly establishments in the area.

We support Runswick Bay Rescue Boat, an independent lifeboat based in a small village just up the coast.

The Black Horse supports Whitby Lifeboat, the station being just a short walk from the pub. Hand knitted yellow wellies are available to buy from the bar at £2.50 a pair. The biggest boost we've been able to give though, is from our hand made dog bandanas. These are £2.50 each and available in 3 different sizes, and a variety of designs. You can check out our FaceBook page 'RNLI Dog Bandanas' and upload a picture of your dog in its bandana. The first 6 months of selling them has raised over £3000 for Whitby Lifeboat, so we thank all of those who have purchased them, or donated material.
