As it says, it comes with a view over the harbour. Good, no-nonsense home cooking deliciously prepared. Popular with the local fishermen and welcoming to the casual visitor. No hesitation in recommending this one.

Lovely staff, excellent food. We had heard that they were one of the best places to get Fish and Chips in Scarborough, so we decided to try after having a couple of bad experiences elsewhere... Winking Willies... Bamfords... One of the best decisions on where to eat that we did make. We were on a little holiday with our daughter... More

Arrived into Scarborough early Sunday morning so decided to try a breakfast. Breakfast was good value and we enjoyed it. The only slight let down were the sausages as we thought they were a bit dry and flavourless. Would visit again though
