Got my owners to enquire whether or not they allowed dogs in the pub. The human answering the phone was polite but informed me that I wouldn't be allowed entry, despite being a greyhound. 4 stars because the man was extremely polite and even admitted himself the irony, but I've never been able to actually visit. :(

We stopped here for a night on our way to Whiby. A lovely homely place with a log fire in the bar. Our room was spacious with a large double bed and tea and coffee. The evening meal was absolutetly delicious, all home cooked. The breakfast had a great choice of cereal, toast or a great English. Will come back on our next trip up North.

Having visited here before, the first time I had sirloin steak, was top notch. Last night we took a couple with us, the steak was full of gristle. Didn’t complain as we were in a rush n had to be somewhere else, service was brilliant as was first visit. Sorry to complaitthis way but feel I must inform you. Thank you very much.

Just returned from an overnight stay here, right on the road side on the A64 approx 14miles before Scarborough...... May not look up to much from the outside but we had a lovely spacious family room on the ground floor of the annexe, room 12A, which is on the front. Was a bit worried about this as A64 very busy & read other reviews, by this honestly did not bother us, we were hardly in the room during day when most of the traffic passing by, could here some traffic when we got into bed, but slept well & never heard through the night. Room 12A is a huge family room, well it actually has 2 bedrooms, a large double, with dressing table, chest drawers, wardrobe, tv, tea & coffee making facilities, 2 seater sofa & arm chair, then a door leading into a twin bedroom, also having a tv. Ensuite bathroom from the main bedroom with overbath shower.... hairdryer in bathroom not working but there was a hairdryer in draw in bedroom. The rooms were so warm, clean bedding & towels, bathroom a little dated, but had everything we needed & was clean We ate in the restuarant on the evening which was so cosy lovely open fire on & the food was fabulous, i had the best ceaser saled ever, my husband had beef & ale homemade pie, chunky real chips, veg & came with a jug of gravy, our grandson had kids pasta dish (ample & he is 11) got a side dish of garlic bread what came with 6 pieces (£2.50), he finished off with boubon biscuit dessert, with brownies & ice cream, they even put a candle in it as its his birthday next week. The main dishes were we had were £11.95 each but well worth it, restuarant was busy, alth bar where we sat afterwards which is small but again very cosy having real fire burning was quiet...... Robin the owner was very friendly & helpful as were the 2 waitresses & the lady behind the bar..... Our room in the annex was just a few steps away from the bar so after a few drinks nice to just take a few steps & in our lovely warm room. Breakfast was very nice served in the conservatory tables have your room number on so you know where u are sitting. Ceral, juice etc help yourself, you then order what you want from the full english breakfast with either tea or coffee & plenty of toast with butter jam & marmalade. Paid for everything as we left & alth there are some negatives on the reviews felt for what we paid £69 for the 3 of us for b&b, it was £116 in total for our evening meal & drinks & it was well worth it & could not complain about anything. Not much around but a great base we had visited Eden Camp & Ganton about 15/20 min drive away, we drove into Filey again about 20 min away think it would take about the same to Scarborough depending on traffic. We do hope to return

Booked 2 rooms for us and friends who were racing Autograss down the road. Arrived late, got room 17 a family room. Really nice room. Very large with a double bed, sofa, furniture etc then a separate joining room with 2 single beds. We are so used to squashing in one room as a family so it was nice to have a separate bedroom for our daughter. The room was very clean and just generally really nice. The only negative that has stopped me giving this a 5 star is the mattress and pillows were so hard and not very comfy and so I didn’t get the best nights sleep. That probably comes down to personal preference more than anything. It was also a little noisy next to the main road but our friends in the room below didn’t even notice any noise so that’s me being really picky! We are in the restaurant which was lovely. I did find the meals to be quite expensive and almost a little overpriced but still enjoyed the meal all the same. It tasted great and was large portions so all good. Service was good, staff very welcoming and helpful. I would definitely stay again here if we were racing again

This was a superb hotel, very large bedroom and bathroom and shower was very hot. The resturaunt food was great ,3 pages of main course dishes in the menu and the starter and main was fantastic. The staff was also fantastic.

We used the Greyhound as a overnight stay when visiting Scarborough Open Air theatre for a gig. It is ideal for this purpose. And will use it again when visiting the theatre. Served a good breakfast, and stayed in a good functional B&B room. Have fond memories of our weekend and stay

The room we stayed in was clean and quiet. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was very dated and needs completely replacing. The breakfast was delicious as was the evening meal. We will definitely eat there again and would stay again too.

Conveniently situated on the Filey to Malton road this pub has a motel style 2 storey block of rooms. Initial impression pulling into car park was of a rather run down pub building and accommodation block. Once inside, the room was large, but clearly cheaply furnished. One faux leather picture frame was losing the faux leather. The bathroom extraction fan cover could do with a de-fluff, and generally the whole room is in need of some tlc. The heating wasn't on, and this was raised with the owner, but it didn't come on at all during our stay. We ate at the pub and both starters and mains were delicious and generously portioned. Food prices were reasonable as were drinks. We were served a good breakfast the following morning in the rear conservatory. Each table is allocated to a room and the room number is displayed on the table. I thought that was a good idea, but it didn't seem to go down well with a group of visiting golfers some of who made a bit of a mountain out of a molehill about it - a bit comical really. We paid £65 b+b on a Saturday night which I consider very reasonable. They can fry a well cooked egg which is more than a lot of places can do, it just needs a bit of a spruce.

I choose this inn as it was next door to Ganton golf course. Ideally located. Also enjoyed the great beer on draft. Very friendly staff. Room was large and comfortable. I didn't have an evening meal but there were plenty of visitors eating. The inn was also popular for walkers.
