Been here quite a few times the view is amazing but the amazing stops there. Such a disappointment !! Yes it was expensive but the main issues was the quality of food and service. There was a male staff member at the counter as you entered who was not interested in helping at all and quite rude. The food was... More

We went to Scarborough Pub for lunch and cannot speak highly enough of our experience. Friendly, helpful service. Very organised. Food arrived quickly and it was delicious and fresh. We sat on the balcony upstairs overlooking the ocean. Magic! The place is clean and well maintained and good value for money. Very impressed 👌🏼

4 of us visiting the area stopped in here for breakfast after walking the local Sea Cliff Bridge. The poor experience started with the sloppy customer service attitude of the young woman at the order counter. The meals (big breakky and eggs benedicte) were almost cold - except the eggs. Dishes that were supposed to have spinach probably had about... More

The service was fantastic. The greeting at the door was very inviting and pleasant. The 3 dip entree was very impressive. The flathead dish was pretty damn good... and now we come to the Salmon. Salsa Verde was flat, the salmon whilst cooked well was stone damn cold as was the chat potatoes which resembled warmed up rubber as they... More

We had a really disappointing lunch at Scarborough Hotel today. While I can't fault the location and the amazing views, our food was simply not acceptable. We ordered two plates of prawns. When we got the prawns we noticed they had white spot disease. They were small, not overly tasty and covered in spots. Knowing that there has been a... More

Food was very nice and was made pretty quickly. For the prices they charge they could at least provide table service for drinks and food. The view really does speak for itself. Just watch the final bill. We were given a bill at the table and then when we went to pay for the bill they printed out another bill... More

The Scarborough Hotel has been long-established as a venue, as stated by another reviewer, and we have found it to be first-class for food, views and atmosphere on every visit. It is certainly worth driving out of Sydney to enjoy lunch or dinner here. The coastal views from the large garden, filled with rustic tables, is superb. You can also... More

A family friendly, dog loving pub with fantastic food and a healthy atmosphere. We love to take a Sunday drive from Sydney down the Scarborough Hotel. bookings are advised for large groups as sometimes its hard to get a table with a view out the ocean. A relaxed atmosphere and friendly helpful staff make for a great way to spend... More

This restaurant has one of the best views of the beach I have seen while in Sydney. And the food was pretty good as well! As it was a bit hit that day, we preferred to sit inside. On a chiller day, the garden would have been a great setting for the meal. We went there for late lunch so... More
