Venturing into the Worsley Arms restaurant is like stepping back in time.Its a rather old fashioned place but none the worse for that. What is for sure is that the food here is excellent and served by a chef who has a great sense of fun. For example my starter consisted of a superb pork terrine pie with melt in... More

Dear Scribbler82 Thank you for posting your thoughts, I was delighted you enjoyed you lunch, I agree, that beef sure looked good! We do try to price the Sunday lunch menu with families in mind, and by buying our beef whole and direct from the farm we are able to 'sharpen our pencil' a bit, but you are correct it... More

We visited this restaurant without prior checking reviews and can certainly recommend it most highly . We were there for Valentines night , so the restaurant was themed accordingly . The menu was £25 for 3 courses a little cheaper without dessert. I presume the general a la carte menu will be similar every other night .. These guys can... More

I had the chicken which consisted of a smallish chicken breast on top of a spoon full of mash it tasted... More

Dear Kidheaduk Thank you for your review. I am sorry that you were disappointed with your visit, skimping on portions is not something that we are often accused of as other reviewers will testify. We would have welcomed a comment at the time to allow us to rectify any problems or concerns that you had (or even supply the magnifying... More

This is the place to drop off for a cup of tea and cake and sitting in front of the open fire makes it special. The staff are so attentive and friendly too. Must try the restaurant some time.

We had been to Scarborough for a break and wanted a meal part-way home. We have a Hi-Life diners clubcard so did a search and although this was a small detour, it was well worth it. They advised us they had a large group coming in so were keen to take our order to avoid any delays then showed us... More

What a discovery, what a menu. Really didn't expect the food to be as good as it was. Wife loved the fish and the local venison was special. Really good food, well presented and tasty to the last bite. Yum.
