I'm just back from a few days in Scarborough. I stayed at The Highlander Hotel on the Esplanade. I enjoyed my stay at The Highlander very much. My room was comfy and clean. The service was very friendly. Nice breakfasts and good food in the bar.

Ate and drank there two nights running. Was stopping at the Crown Spa hotel next door (50 mtrs away) Prices are a lot more pleasing to the pocket here than the 5* Crown!. Friday evening in the bar was steak night, two rump steaks and a bottle of house wine for two was £22. Well what can I say, bar... More

We use as our local when we are in Scarborough. There is a good range of traditional beer always available and if you like wine then there are a good range of single serve bottles available. The staff are really welcoming and serve you quickly and there are a large number of regulars who are also friendly and welcoming.

This was our second visit for a Sunday Lunch carvery. We were greeted warmly by the staff who were very pleasant and efficient. The food was a typical carvery with plenty of choice. Would I recommend it and return at sometime.....yes and yes.

The Highlander is a lovely, small hotel in a neighborhood filled with Victorian buildings. We had a spacious room on the top floor with a beautiful view of the water; the hotel is old but very well maintained and clean. We ate at the pub both nights that we stayed in the hotel and enjoyed the neighborhood feel and the... More

We were staying at the Mansion House hotel on the Esplanade and the Highlander was one of the recommended places to eat. On a three night stay we ate at the Highlander twice because the food was excellent and the value for money second to none. The menu is what is sometimes sneeringly referred to as "Pub-Grub" but so what?... More

A warm and friendly place with a good selection of ales served in true Yorkshire style, excellent, we stayed over for the quiz and enjoyed the... More

My wife and I have just spent 10 days at Scarborough at a B&B hotel, so we needed to seek an eating place for our main meal. We were based at a hotel not far from the Highlander on the Esplanade, so on the 2nd night of our stay we popped in to 'test' the food. We were not disappointed.... More

As a local, who calls in often at lunchtime for a drink and occasionally a bite to eat, the proprietors and staff deserve praise and recognition for their professionalism and ability to make each person feel welcome and valued: a rare attribute nowadays. Friday nights are especially noteworthy and extremely popular when 2 steaks and a bottle of good wine... More
