My wife and I ate at the Blacksmiths Arms Inn as we were staying at the establishment. We both had Sea Bass and it was cooked beautifully. It was NOT deal fried so the taste and texture of the fish came through. We were truly impressed with the quality of this meal. The staff were friendly, and so were the... More

Ate 2 nights in a row after being recommended by our B&B. A short drive out of Scarborough. Well worth a visit. You can eat in the bar or restaurant. Huge portion sizes. Great variety. Lovely atmosphere.

Very nice pub/Restaurant and accommodation set in a quiet little village The food is extremely good and the price will not break the bank I would recommend advance booking for meals on a weekend and bank holiday.

Enjoyed our meal here - we were fortunate to get the last table as we hadn't booked. Service was good, food tasty and portions generous.

Easy access for Whitby and Pickering. Hotel staff all nice and friendly. Our room was over priced but was the last one, nothing wrong with the room it was nice just over priced. If had paid for one of the other more reasonable priced rooms though we would have been more than happy. It is a nice pub hotel.

We stayed for 2 nights here and the place was first class. The room was large and well decorated but what made it outstanding was the evening meals and the friendliness of the staff. The meals were good quality pub food which would be hard to beat anywhere. All set in a cozy atmosphere. We will defintly go again when... More

We stumbled upon this lovely old pub and were certainly glad we did as the food on offer was of a higher standard then the usual 'pub grub'. The family run business offered a diverse menu and after we had all eaten starters we were simply unable to try the attractive desert menu! Great service also and my in-laws, who... More
