Popped in for a quick drink while shopping. The bar was about half full and had a nice atmosphere. The one guy that was on the bar was nice and friendly and the seating area was clean, only critique was there was a smell of damp. Apart from that, it was a nice experience.

This is a great little pub. Good for watching sport or late into the night live music ! Nice light & clean, good choice of drinks with good service. Does not serve food, but if you just want a drink here's the place.

A good place to watch sport as plenty of tv screen around the room. There is also live music on some nights including Sunday's which is a great idea. Pity about the toilets, as the building is old the toilets are very small and old but also smell really damp with rotting wood in the ladies and a door that... More

Since all the nightclubs in Scarborough have now closed, much of the late night reveling has moved to the bars with late licences. This one is my favourite because the quality of the live music is superb and it's quite an eclectic bunch of customers that attend. On a quiet night this place is still busy.
