We we allowed in the front part of the bar -fantastic. There was plenty of choice of food which arrived very quickly and was really good. The beer was the best my... More

Had the 2 meals for £9.00 deal. Fish and homemade steak pie with real chips would definitely recommend. They also do a steak meal for 2 with a bottle of wine for £22.00 on Friday nights. Selection of real ales and a welcoming coal fire a very cosy retreat .

Always a friendly welcome and four real ales on. Three ubiquitous and one good Yorkshire one - Wold Top Bitter. This beer was on good form each time we went in. The 'home cooked' food was worth going in for. The locals go for the food too, so it has to be good!

After a six hour road trip to Scarborough from Bournemouth we just wanted a hot meal. What we found was great food in a restaurant that was buzzing with visitors and locals. A warm welcome from the landlady despite a packed bar. Spent the evening chatting and laughing with locals, dog friendly and also very friendly to southerners! At ridiculously... More

We visit here regularly, having a holiday flat nearby, and the food and service is always good. My steak pie was very tasty although I left the puff pastry top, so I suppose I had stew! But either way it was very good as was the service both at the bar and at the table. We will keep returning here.
