Cosy pub with open fire. Unfortunately the fire was only lit as we arrived and soon went out. Owner saw it was out but did not relight it. Good selection of food available on the menu and specials board. The home made steak and ale pie was very good but the steak requested to be medium was done to death.... More

A long walk up the cinder track for a couple of pints and Sunday lunch. A limited menu but we were after the Sunday lunch anyway. The beef was excellent, although the veg was a bit disappointing. Mrs BB looked enviously at the next table who had parsnips where we didn't! Well worth the walk and we will be back!

We had a meal, I had breast of chicken in cream, mushroom and brandy sauce which was amazing. My other three companions had pie, haddock and beef burger, all served with chips and seasonal vegetables.... More

Found this absolute treasure, after a very long day with 3 hungry children, 1 of which is dairy intolerant. The staff were friendly, and nothing was a problem, and the food was simply amazing, yes there was a wait, but when the food is being freshly made, and the chef even changed the frying oil to ensure no dairy contamination...

We stayed here while in Scarborough for the funeral of a family friend. After a five hour drive, we found this pub to be a charming and welcoming environment. The chef even prepared a beautiful and delicious platter of food for us, even though the kitchen had closed. The rooms were basic but comfortable and the Full English Breakfast delicious.... More

Homemade steak pie with chips and onion gravy........ Fantastic. This was a far cry from the usual microwave food found at some pubs. We arrived at 18:00 and were the 3rd group of the 4 that were there to be dining. When we left at approx 19:00 the place was almost full with diners. This place obviously already has a... More
