View is great if you can get a table with a view. Food is less than ordinary so not worth the drive. Prices mid to high for quality of food. Reality of experience did not meet hype.

We regularly catch the train or bus to the Scarborough pub for lunch which we did today. We have never been so disappointed. One of our favourite meals has been flathead fillets & chips with salad. Today there is a new menu, it is now...More
