We diverted to this pub, after cutting a coastal walk short and were very pleased that we did. Whilst we only needed a snack the food was delicious and of high quality, especially my prawn sandwich.

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.
