“Just love it so much”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

What a fab pub you have made of the scape house. You should be very proud! Lovely food (bit expensive to be perfectly honest) but still we love it. Wish we could afford to go more as we just love it and the staff are all lovely too!!!! Keep up the good work thank you

“Raelly worth trying”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Went here last night for a meal with 8 friends. Feeling dubious as I have not had many good pub meals lately. How wrong I was. This was really good. The menu was varied and interesting not just the usual pub fare. The prices were good and the portions very generous., but the best thing was the well cooked fresh really good quality food . The staff were great too, nothing too much trouble and they were all very friendly. The pub was really nicely decorated and had a lovely warm Christmassy atmosphere. I will definitely go back.

“Good food - nothing fancy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

Went with 10 friends for our 'Christmas Do.' We were able to choose from the Christmas Menu or the normal one, which impressed us as most places insist that everybody has to pick from the same menu. The food was good with large portions, but nothing fancy - just like the sister pub, the Rose & Crown at Cop Hill, indeed some of the dishes were the same. We thought it was excellent value, and the staff were very cheerful and gave great service.

The downside? Whilst the pub ceiling and walls were decorated, the table was bare, there were no Christmas decorations on the table, no crackers, no table cloth - it could have been a transport cafe with the wipe down tables.

“Sunday lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

We recently visited the Scape House for Sunday lunch with friends after having seen good reports on tripadvisor. First impressions were very good when we walked in on a very cold lunchtime, with a lovely log fire burning to create a cosy atmosphere by the bar. Unfortunately we were not seated by the bar, despite having booked a table the week before, but by the chilly, draughty toilet door at the far end of the pub. While the food and service were very good, and I must stress that they were very good, the overall experience was spoiled by where we were sat. I would go back and give it another go, but ask to either be seated in the bar area or the dining room at the front of the building.
