We decided to take the 10 minute drive out to the Inn after reading that it was child friendly and it was tipping it down with rain in Scarborough last monday evening and arrived at 6pm as thats the time they start to serve food. We entered by the lower bar and were greeted by a roaring log fire and the very friendly landlord.
He made us feel very welcome and showed us where a high chair was for our 2 year old, who we decided to let sit up to the table rather than use the chair and she promptly fell over with a couple of tears. The landlord immediately came over with crayons, a colouring book and a few kind words which was a really nice touch.
I tried a couple of pints of the locally brewed ale named after the inn, which was top notch, just as well that i was driving or the temptation to have more would have been hard to resist!
Both myself and my wife had the steak pie which whilst a bit pricey at £11 was absolutely delicious and accompanied by a dish of 5 fresh veg and another of huge crispy chips, which were divine. Being a greedy guts i had a desert which was supposed to be sticky toffee pudding but turned out to be syrup sponge, so i was a teeny bit dissapointed but it was nice non the less.
If we are back up that way, we would definately return, a proper traditional atmospheric inn with top food and ale, how another reviewer percieved it to be a 'chain' type of pub i will never know. Great place with a smashing landlord !
