Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My husband and I came here for lunch with my sister and brother in law, and there dog. The pub is very dog-friendly. The service was great - barman was very friendly and efficient. Food service was quick and food was excellent. I ordered a...side salad to go with my meal and it was presented very nicely - wasn't just a bit of lettuce, tomato and cucumber thrown together as is often the case. will definitely be back.More

Been here countless times over the years and always make a point of walking to it when we visit Scarborough, but Friday was a bad example how an arrogant, cockey member of staff can ruin a good establishments reputation! His manner was so off putting...and when my wife asked politely for our table to be cleaned, he replied he was busy and would do it when he got the chance!!! He never made an effort to do so and there was only 8 customers in at the time! HE WAS AN ABSOLUTE DISGRACE. We will go back but hopefully someone takes this on board and gets rid before we return. My advice to him is get out of hospitality it's not for you!More

Took my mum here for lunch as we’ve often walked past but hadn’t been in for years. The steak pie & chips are definitely recommended. Fast service, good food & amazing sea views.

My lovely friend took me here for lunch and it has changed a bit since I was last here many years ago! We had lunch and the menu was very extensive and it was difficult to choose but the steak pie, mash and peas were...so good and talk about loads of steak 🥩 with not one piece of gristle or fat.. Brandon was very kind attentive and funny and made us feel very at home 🏡.More

We’re a family of three, a couple with a 7 month old baby and a dog so eating out for us can be chaotic… we’re also quite picky and like nice places… after looking at various places to eat we tried here and it was...perfect. The pub is traditional and old but the pub grub was lovely Overal fab home cooked pub grub in a lovely setting by the sea at really fair prices! We will definitely visit again.More

Visited for lunch after visiting the sea life centre. Food was ok - my wife had scampi and chips which she said was good. Chips really nice. I had the Yorkshire pudding with beef. I’m sure the Yorkshire pudding was a frozen one - was...like an aunt Bessie’s one. Lovely area and views.More

We’ve been here for family birthdays. It’s ideal as we can pre-book as generally there are between 20 & 24 people. We’ve also been as a couple and enjoyed everything we’ve had and the service has been pleasant. It does get busy at weekends and...Bank Holidays so either book, be prepared to wait for a table or be disappointed?More

Ordered 2 cokes but when we started drinking them they were flat. They poured us another but still flat, said he would go and change it but when he came back and poured another they were still flat. We ended up with 2 cans instead...and being served by miserable staff. We then went and sat outside and the tables were filthy and looked like they hadn’t been cleaned in a while! Will definitely not be going backMore

I have severe eating problems at the moment so I'm restricted as to what I can eat & the staff were so accommodating with what I...ordered to give me what i could eat from the dish & it cane to the table perfect.
