I have been here many times and have always found the food and service great. The meat is of a very good quality, and the flavour of the food in general is fantastic. You get plenty of food, and l couldn't have fitted a pudding in. The service is also very good and the staff very efficient and friendly.

We have been here numerous times now, and to be honest is the highlight of our weekends away to Scarborough. We have tried nearly all of the restaurants within and around Scarborough but the reason that we are repeat customers here is that they have the most freshest food, wide variety menu of both food and drinks and mainly the...

Having visited this restaurant on previous occasions with no problems, we had no hesitations about booking our extended family (12) pre Christmas get together at this venue. We had to wait 2 hrs for our meal to arrive, after 1 and a half hours of waiting we were told that there were no French fries, would mash do instead, and... More

Went here late on Saturday evening, staff were great and accommodated me and my partner to a table. The waiting staff took our drinks orders promptly and brought them straight over. We went for SOL but there is ample to choose from. The venue had two largish Xmas parties in that night and the largest of the two were amicable... More
