“Good lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Had a lunch here, chicken wraps, toasted sandwich and toasted tea cake, all very good. Wide choice on menu caters for all budgets and tastes. the fish and chips going to another table looked impressive and good value for money. Pleasant staff and good ambience. Will definitely return.

“Lovely food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Lovely food well presented. My wife had Pork and I had Sea Bass both excellently presented with fresh vegetables as an accompaniment as well as real chips. Finished with a cheeseboard with lots of choice.
All in all a lovely evening - excellent service and great decor

“"Poor!"”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Went to this restaurant whilst on holiday. I ordered sea bass & my wife ordered a gammon steak which was supposed to come with new potatoes. When the food eventually arrived her meal came with a baked potato. As she liked baked potato she went with it, however, once she opened it up to eat it was off. The waitress took it away but they did not have another nor any new potatoes & three times asked my wife if she wanted chips. My wife had already told when placing the order she definitely did not want chips She was eventually given extra salad. When we had finished our meal, which I will say was very nice, the waitress asked if we would like the desert menu to which we replyed yes. Big mistake, after waiting for 10 minutes we had to ask for it. We then received one & before we had time to look at it another waitress came & asked what we wanted. That was the final straw. We basically told them to just get us the bill. Several other people in there were also complaining, one gentleman had been waiting for 40 minutes for his starter & said to cancel the rest of his order as he wouldn't have time to eat it. The place was not that busy either. If you are going to Scarborough the is certainly one to avoid.
