Stopped off after a visit to the park. Worse mistake we made. Ordered cream teas and they came ready made up with spray cream not fresh clotted cream as a proper cream tea. The tea came in a massive pot and a chipped milk jug. Dirty cups. They also don't seem to clean well as if you assess the photos... More

Seems to serve everyone before me so I almost walked out after 45 mins. When the cod & chips did arrive it was ok but nothing special.

Popped in for a coffee on a cold rainy September day. Very quiet. Just had a coffee and a scone. Service and price fine. No complaints.

The sandwich cost £2.95 and consisted of two slices of bread, a mashed up egg which had large pieces of egg white and mixed with... More

We were in Scarborough for a long weekend and this restaurant was only a short walk from the guest house. We went for a meal here on the second night and were not disappointed. The service was good the waitresses were friendly and the food was lovely. I would return here.
