We visited the duchess tonight and were disappointed with the service. Couldn't fault the food it was as good as ever. We normally go for the carvery on a sunday lunch and haven't had bad service before.

Stumbled upon the little pub while visiting a and e in Scarborough. What a little gem! 3 kids meals and 3 adult meals for £34.00 bargain. Food was superb, red hot, tons of it, and lovely and tasty. Will be one of our first stops next year.

Was recommended the Sunday Carvery by a neighbour. Rang to book and was advised to make it for 2pm because of a big booking at 1pm - fair enough.The first thing we noticed was how small the plates were - certainly not normal size dinner plates. There was a choice of three meats - the beef was overcooked, the gammon... More

This lovely pub is an absolute gem, with nice decor and surroundings, lovely staff and delicious food at a great price. Service was really quick and the staff very attentive to our requests. My wife, parents in law and myself thoroughly enjoyed our meal and would recommend the Duchess to anyone who enjoys homecooked, good English food.

We went to the Duchess last Thursday and took advantage of their 'two for one' meal deal offer. We both had the 'Duchess Burger' and were not disappointed. When delivered it looked just the same as the pictures of the burger my wife had shown me on the pub website. When tasted we were not disappointed, it was really good.... More

Last Saturday I organised a Church Trip to Selby Abbey and Scarborough. We had a great meal at the Duchess - pre ordered but only £8:50 for two really good courses. We used a "2 4 10" menu that included Haddock, Chips and Peas (with wonderfully light batter), Scampi, Lasagne, Various Omlettes and a great choice of traditional puds. All... More
