Stumbled upon the little pub while visiting a and e in Scarborough. What a little gem! 3 kids meals and 3 adult meals for £34.00 bargain. Food was superb, red hot, tons of it, and lovely and tasty. Will be one of our first stops next year.

Was recommended the Sunday Carvery by a neighbour. Rang to book and was advised to make it for 2pm because of a big booking at 1pm - fair enough.The first thing we noticed was how small the plates were - certainly not normal size dinner plates. There was a choice of three meats - the beef was overcooked, the gammon... More

This lovely pub is an absolute gem, with nice decor and surroundings, lovely staff and delicious food at a great price. Service was really quick and the staff very attentive to our requests. My wife, parents in law and myself thoroughly enjoyed our meal and would recommend the Duchess to anyone who enjoys homecooked, good English food.

We went to the Duchess last Thursday and took advantage of their 'two for one' meal deal offer. We both had the 'Duchess Burger' and were not disappointed. When delivered it looked just the same as the pictures of the burger my wife had shown me on the pub website. When tasted we were not disappointed, it was really good.... More

We were first alerted to The Duchess by friends 2 years ago and have been using the pub regularly for various types of meals across various days of the week. We have used this pub as our sunday carvery... More

We have tried meal at The Duchess pub numerous times over the years, as we live within close proximity. To be honest I've got to say that in the past, it has been hit and miss on the quality of food. However, we have eaten at The Duchess 5 or 6 times over the past 3-months and we will be... More

Last Saturday I organised a Church Trip to Selby Abbey and Scarborough. We had a great meal at the Duchess - pre ordered but only £8:50 for two really good courses. We used a "2 4 10" menu that included Haddock, Chips and Peas (with wonderfully light batter), Scampi, Lasagne, Various Omlettes and a great choice of traditional puds. All... More

We visited here for one of their so called tasty carverys. Truly dissapointed . Miserable staff, tasteless food apart from the yorkshire puds which were nice . Overall not worth the money . Far nicer food available in other places. We wont be returning next holiday

Sorry to hear your visit to The Duchess was not a satisfactory one. I would be interested to know when you visited us. We pride ourselves on our friendly and welcoming staff so find it upsetting that you found the staff "miserable". We are one of very few places in the Scarborough area that offer a carvery which consists of... More
