Bar Staff are very helpful and friendly. Good choice of Beers and Cider. We found a table fairly easily, as it was quite busy. The food was really nice. I had Marstons Beef Ale Pie and my Wife had Hunters Chicken. Both well cooked and presented. A nice friendly Pub not too far from the Town Centre and Rail Station.... More

The thing that motivated me to leave a review was the good service from both staff on duty especially the supervisor Chloe. Food was ok too, usual pub food as you'd expect. Really cheap so you get what you pay for. Saying that, in Scarborough I've had worse food that was a lot more expensive! I don't go for microwaved,... More

My nanny went for a meal with her friend. They ordered there meals and drinks then said to the lady behind the bar we might have a sweet later. At that the girl asked my nan for her credit card. My nan thought she was paying for her meal to see the girl put the credit card in a draw.... More

Hi Donald, Thank you for taking time to leave feedback. I would like to take this time to explain why we had to stop service on this particular evening.
