Can't fault it at all.

We stopped at Wrea Head last night and ate in the restaurant along with friends. The food was superb, well cooked and presented. We all commented on the quality, taste and value. The menu is not large but does have plenty of choice. I had the scallops which were tasty followed by the steak. The... read more

We booked for a murder mystery night which included a 5 course dinner. Food, service, ambiance, entertainment and company all excellant. We went not knowing what to expect and have been really impressed. The staff were attentive and made the whole evening a pleasure. Whilst not cheap it is certainly excellant value for money and we will return in the... More

You don't need to stay at Wrea Head to enjoy the food!! We have now eaten several times in 1881 and each meal has been wonderful. The food seems to get better each time we visit, which is a good sign the chef continues to hone his skills and knowledge. I have had lesser meals in restaurants with awards, so... More

Visited with two friends and only two other couples (probably guests in the hotel) were in the restaurant. This meant that our conversations were easily overheard as there was no background music. The staff were very attentive and the food was excellent (one of the best meals we have had in Scarborough) The setting is idyllic so hopefully more people... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I am sorry that your evening was a little lacking in atmosphere as it is normal to have background music playing at all times. It is all computerised across the hotel so the system may have crashed and was not picked up by the team or they had a problem... More

We have recently returned from a short break at Wrea Head, we had a package that included evening meals so we ate both nights in the 1881 restaurant, and we were not disappointed with the meals on either night. The package included choices from the normal menu but for a small charge (£5) you could upgrade and mix the menu... More

The new owners here have turned this place round wonderfully. It's in picturesque location, it reeks of history and it's a very beautiful building. The decor inside is dominated by oak panelling and subdued lighting. The bar is expensive but not overly so. The staff are obviously professionally trained, well attired and very helpful. The meal put on for some... More

My partner and I have continued to enjoy the delights that Wrea Head have to offer as we take different friends there for the overall experience. We are coming to know the staff better which makes for an even more relaxing time. If I do have a criticism it is that on one occasion I suggested we might enjoy a... More
