Decent prices, fair selection of beers and certainly caters for a more mature pub goer. Very "Blokey " when we went, it's the real ales! Does a selection of food but didn't try any.

Dear Bobbyx Thank you for visiting and posting your thoughts. You are quite correct! We do tend to cater to the more mature end of the market: we love it! Nice relaxed people who know how to drink and enjoy themselves, without acting like fools. Some people try to be too much to too many people. This is a sure... More

We are a rapper sword dance team from various parts of the country who meet up regularly in different cities to dance and make merry. The manager Toby and his staff have kindly let us use their lovely pub to practice in. They have made us feel very welcome and the bacon sarnies were delicious. Great beer and a brilliant... More

We ate at the Scarborough on recommendation but found the food quite average. There was music playing in the background of already an extremely noisy bar. The staff was really busy but remained very pleasant.

Dear Gr0mit, We're sorry that your experience with regard to your food was not as good as anticipated. We do pride ourselves on the quality of our classic 'pub fayre' menu, but seem to have been below expectation on this occasion. This is rare for us. We do have music playing which should be only slightly audible, our apologies if... More

Can't believe we've only just discovered this place, it doesn't look like much from the outside and it's not in the best part of the city centre, however, don't be mislead, it's clean and cosy inside, the staff are friendly and the food is amazing. I had steak which was cooked beautifully and melt in the mouth, whilst my husband... More

Dear Rosie J, We are glad you finally found us! Our location is a little 'off the beaten track', however we see this as both positive and negative. The grade 2 listed tiles on the exterior mean we can't do too much with the outside (not that we would want to!) but hopefully when we get our summer flower baskets... More

Dear MARKO L, Thanks for the great review. The chefs work very hard and, too often in the catering industry, all they will receive in terms of feedback is the negative.
