We stopped at Wrea Head last night and ate in the restaurant along with friends.
The food was superb, well cooked and presented.
We all commented on the quality, taste and value. The menu is not large but does have plenty of choice.
I had the scallops which were tasty followed by the steak. The steak dish was very good, obviously using top quality meat.
Breakfast the next morning was very nice, quality products cooked just right. The menu choice is good but I opted for the Full Yorkshire and it certainly hit the spot.
All the staff we met were courteous and pleasant, they are a credit to the hotel. We can't wait to visit again.

We booked for a murder mystery night which included a 5 course dinner. Food, service, ambiance, entertainment and company all excellant. We went not knowing what to expect and have been really impressed. The staff were attentive and made the whole evening a pleasure. Whilst not cheap it is certainly excellant value for money and we will return in the future.

You don't need to stay at Wrea Head to enjoy the food!! We have now eaten several times in 1881 and each meal has been wonderful. The food seems to get better each time we visit, which is a good sign the chef continues to hone his skills and knowledge. I have had lesser meals in restaurants with awards, so it shouldn't be too long until a rosette or two come knocking??!!
Ingredients are fresh, in season and sourced locally, especially the Game (supplied by the local Shoot!). Tables are well spaced and impeccably dressed, together with comfortable seating.
I too can't remember any background music (computerised across the hotel Gerald??!!) but don't personally think it is needed, unless perhaps there are only a few diners, then a bit of classical might be pleasant to hear?
You also have the added benefit of using the wonderful bar or main hall with open fires for pre/post lunch/dinner drinks, which is always a plus point over the majority of restaurants!!
For the quality of the food, service and beautiful surroundings, Wrea Head can't be beaten for the price and continues to be the best restaurant in the area.

Visited with two friends and only two other couples (probably guests in the hotel) were in the restaurant. This meant that our conversations were easily overheard as there was no background music. The staff were very attentive and the food was excellent (one of the best meals we have had in Scarborough) The setting is idyllic so hopefully more people will visit and the ambience will improve

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I am sorry that your evening was a little lacking in atmosphere as it is normal to have background music playing at all times. It is all computerised across the hotel so the system may have crashed and was not picked up by the team or they had a problem rebooting it. I am glad you enjoyed the food and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
