First visit today and it didn't disappoint... food was amazing. Bang bang chicken salad was divine and Halloumi foccacia was also great. After lunch we shared a sticky toffee pudding which was delicious. Staff were warm, friendly and visit attentive. Can't wait to visit again

We visit quite often and can honestly say the Sunday lunches are the best we have had in Scarborough. The vegetables are great and not your bog standard carrots, cabbage etc. Everything is tasty. As soon as you walk in the door a member of staff always greets you with a smile and hello. They are really friendly. We have... More

We stoped in here on our way home from Scarborough and had a light lunch which was brilliant!! We took the dog with us and we're able to sit out in the court yard. The portion sizes were excellent and gave brilliant value for money. The setting was also lovely and can't wait to go back

Stopped off here for lunch and so glad we did. I had the sandwich and soup, soup was homemade roast carrot and parsnip and was very tasty and really thick. The sandwich was roasted ham with red onion chutney. There was so much ham on this sandwich and it was gorgeous. Hubby had the bacon cheeseburger which he said was... More

We visited for morning coffee and scones at the end of our holidays and were impressed on all levels. The Barn has been converted into a most attractive space for a café and the lighting and overall décor, plus high standard food and service would seem to make it a most appealing venue to visit on the summer weekend evenings...
