“Fine Dining in a perfect setting”
Reviewed November 13, 2011

My boyfriend and I looked on trip advisor for a restaurant to go for our anniversary. The Coachman Inn did not disappoint. The staff were friendly and attentive. There was a choice between a la carte and the Coachmans classic menu. Both had a wide range of starters, main courses and desserts. My boyfriend and i favoured the a la carte. We had the lobster and crayfish ravioli and the home-made soup to start and then the breast of chicken with mushroom tortellini for main. The puddings sounded amazing but we were just too full. Water is served on the table with warm home made bread. The room is perfect for a romantic meal but also larger parties. Fine dining just 15 minutes from Scarborough.

“Excellent all round”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

We came for an early Sunday lunch with our 14 month old daughter. We haven't been out for many meals with her and I was a little nervous about how we'd get on. Staff were excellent from the moment we arrived - very attentive. Bar was cute with good cask ales, and dining room was beautifully presented. All our roasts were cooked perfectly and as other families arrived there was a really good family atmosphere.

Overall, lovely restaurant and one of the best quality (and value) sunday dinners we've had. We'll definitely return when we're next in the area.

“An excellent meal leaving us planning our return”
Reviewed October 26, 2011

We booked last minute for my wife's birthday, it was mid-week so we were nearly the only ones in the restaurant.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the menu offered a good range of dishes. When they arrived they were well presented, well cooked and just about the right size. I had smoked haddock and risotto to start with belly pork for the main. It was all excellent and full of flavour. We shared a dessert and had coffee to follow. It was very relaxed, the staff were there when we needed them and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening. We wondered why we had not been before but will certainly be returning soon.
