We called in to rest our weary feet and it just so happened that the International Rugby match between England and South Africa was on, so one very happy husband! A point of John Smith's and a half pint of Stella Artois was £4:25 which we considered very reasonable. A medium glass of Shiraz was £2:75, also acceptable. Beautifully clean...

Really nice family welcoming clean pub. Prices really good, food is good pub grub. Ale was good, had a Doombar. But best of all was the service, two very well mannered staff and very helpful. For this fact alone I would be back.

Was astounded to be charged £14 for two pints and two halfs of carling in this pub!! God knows what they charge for premium lagers but we won't be finding out!! If...

This is our 2nd visit and I can't fault it. I always look forward to the delicious food and lovely friendly staff. We haven't tried to book an overnight stay yet but wouldn't hesitate. I'm sure it won't be long before we're back in Scarborough and having another lovely meal here.😊

We were looking for somewhere to have lunch and saw The Dickens Bar & Inn which had on display outside a menu which offered Ham, Chips and Two Eggs and this appealed to both myself and my wife. There were other offerings but this suited us. When we got inside we were pleasantly surprised by a clean, well decorated establishment...

On a stay in Scarborough I looked for somewhere to eat, this place was almost straight facing the main hotels. Clean and modern, very friendly staff with good grub thrown in. I had the Steak and Ale Pie, yummy with a pint of John Smiths to wash it down. There was an artist on crooning some decent tunes, the place...
