Lady behind bar told us that she'd just switched everything off but she'd "switch it all back on if we like". We thanked her and she then immediately disappeared. We sat for at least ten... More

Although we were in the Duchess for sandwiches ,tea/coffees after a funeral, we found the staff very friendly efficient and very attentive to our needs. The food was excellent and very well presented, certainly the atmosphere was good. I think the majority of the friends and family thought it was an ideal venue to have further meetings and get together... More

Overall very nice, reasonable priced food. Friendly staff. The downsides to our visit were that upon arrival, the door labeled the "restaurant" was the wrong room to enter. We preceded to walk through the pub area to the conservatory, the pub seemed pleasant enough. The table itself was rather sticky and the cutlery was slightly dirty. Good taste in music... More

She gave us a table in the conservatory at the back, we ordered our food and it came quickly. I had the wholetail... More

Visited here whilst on holiday with family. Good price for meals and good selection. All the children ate free, portion sizes were generous. Staff very friendly and helpful. Will defiantly return in the future when visiting Scarborough.
