I spent an hour in Yorkshire's most eastern Pub - and was blown away by the views

Picture the scene - you've just walked the length of Spurn Point and back with the dopamine high of completing the scenic walk and in need of a well-earned reward.

Whether it be a brew, a bite or a pint, one of the closest stops will be the Crown and Anchor pub on the corner - overlooking the historic walk.

Having just completed the walk, and the fact that the nearest shop is ten miles away, I spent an hour in the pub to rest up in what turns out to be Yorkshire's most easterly pub.

With a small population in Kilnsea, and it being a Tuesday afternoon I knew that I wouldn't be fighting to get to the bar. The quaint bar had a selection of lagers and pale ales, but I stuck to a lovely pint of Guinness.

While the pint was waiting to settle, to my right was a plethora of awards given to the place. One of them really caught my eye, having been awarded the most Easterly Pub in Yorkshire - presented back in 2011. I imagine with all the coastal erosion since, that it's only cemented itself further.

A local pub to the people of (technically) New Kilnsea, the original hamlet was washed away back in 1826 - with the Crown and Anchor giving prime views of the Spurn Bight and Humber. I can imagine during peak beer garden weather, people are fighting for a bench outside.

On the day I went, the wind was picking up so we opted to sit inside. While I got the drinks in, my dad got chatting with a couple who sat in our proximity who were from the neighbouring parish of Patrington and were visiting family in (new) Kilnsea.

The food menu looked rather incredible - with the specials looking rather tasty; Yorkshire pudding wraps, chicken tikka, and pies - its just a shame I had no appetite or I would have devoured a wrap.

The walls were covered with tributes and memorabilia to Spurn - as half expected. I could've spent all day looking at all the faces of people who worked on the shores for ages. I couldn't help but think if the staff see the same faces twice - or if people are just passing through following the walk given the seemingly isolated location of the pub bar.

Speaking to Yorkshire Live in October, publican David Whitaker said that people are put off by the location. "It’s out of the way, a Marmite place, definitely, as some people just can’t do with it. The nearest shops are ten miles away. That’s a big thing for people but once you’re here, it’s so beautiful and so peaceful.”

He wasn't wrong about the peacefulness of the place. Although the beer garden faces the road to Spurn Point, with only one car passing us while we were there, we got a great view of the River Humber - clouds parted for a few minutes of sunshine as we got a true glimpse of the three-mile walk we'd just completed. When I next have a walk around Spurn, I'll definitely be rewarding myself here again.
