Beiderbecke's Hotel

Hotel | "A quirky boutique hotel in the centre of town!"

When we visit Scarborough we always try to stay in a different hotel just to have a change of scenery (we are there a lot). On this occassion we decided to try Beiderbecke's in the centre of town. Touted as a boutuque hotel, which I think is the only one in the town, we were excited to stay in this beautiful Georgian building. The hotel itself is located in area known as The Crescent, which historically was the place to stay, especially in the Georgian time period. Most of the rooms look out onto the tree-lined park that is found in the middle of the crescent, the perfect place for a lunchtime picnic.We arrived just after 4pm and so were able to check in immediately, the reception area is...Read More

Da-Claudio

Restaurant | "A nice quiet little Italian restaurant!"

Set just a few steps away from the main drag of Scarborough's pubs and bars is this little gem of an Italian restaurant. It's not somewhere that as locals we have ever really thought to go for Italian food. The reason being that we mainly head to the better known Giannis or Florios, both are longer established restaurants. So we were excited when we were taken by our family to Da Cladio's, just to try something new. We were warned not to expect pizza, as it isn't served here, but that didn't bother us at all.We arrived and headed into the restaurant through the secret entrance hidden on Bar Street. We were left standing for a few minutes and then a waitress, who appeared to be on her own, ...Read More

AZ Turkish Restaurant

Restaurant | "Turkish Food at it's best!"

O.k. so perhaps the title is a little misleading, because I'm sure you would be able to get better Turkish food in Turkey. However, in a little town like Scarborough I think this restaurant is the best you're going to find. It's a very small, intimate restaurant, perfect for a date or a romantic evening with your other half. I think they can seat a maximum of 34 people, so very tiny. It's also located a little off the beaten track, quite close to some guesthouses and not a long walk away from the beach. As you wander up Columbus Ravine, you'll just see a restaurant with lots of twinkly lights outside and then you've found it.When we arrived, we were the only people in the restaurant so had...Read More

Restaurant | "A newly extended restaurant that still serves great food!"

When choosing somewhere for a romantic meal, my partner and I have returned time and again to this Scarborough institution. We've been eating at Gianni's for over 10 years now and have never been disappointed. This particular visit was the first time we had been since some pretty major rennovations, including a full extension. We didn't book a table, yet managed to walk in on a Friday night and get a table for 2 with no trouble at all, not something we would have been able to prior to the extension.We were seated upstairs with a few other families and the atmosphere was nice and cozy. Our drinks were brought to us quickly and we were left to decide on our dinner. I opted for a special of p...Read More

Stepney Hill Farm Gourmet Meat Company Steak and Grill Room

Restaurant | "Not for vegetarians!"

As we were visiting relatives we decided to have a family meal out and hastily began looking for somewhere new to try. Sure enough a wander around the town led to the discovery of the Gourmet Meat Company's Steak & Grill room. By day a cafe with simple, no-nonsense decor and an extensive menu, but by night turning into a private party venue. We booked in very easily for a Friday evening with a table for 10. We took away some menus and we asked to pre-order our mains the night before, so that they could get everything they needed down from the farm.The farm is the unique selling point of this cafe, in this day and age of mass marketed, chain restaurants it really is refreshing to find s...Read More
