Lovely meal lovely staff
Great ranging menu with lots of fish and grill options
We really enjoyed our evening for four with you on Saturday. Good food, friendly attentive service and nice wines. See you again soon.
Regular visitor. Staff are ALWAYS excellent and food once again superb. Looking forward to visiting again very soon !
My favourite restaurant hands down!
We had a wonderful evening. Steak Night is well worth trying. All guests really enjoyed themselves.
good food, great staff
The food is always excellent at Tykes but the service is painfully slow. Our waitress was really lovely and was working really hard but having one person serving all the tables whilst others look like they are doing nothing/ are waiting for food from the kitchen to deliver clearly doesn’t work. It’s such a shame as the food and building are really lovely. We would visit Tykes much more often if the speed of service could be improved.
Lovely as always
The young waiter did not know the difference between beer and lager telling us they did not do beer! Saw the pump on the way out!! The risotto accompanying my fish special was flavourless and very gloopy!! Apart from that the food was delicious. Felt they were slightly understaffed. Would have no hesitation on returning.
We had a very enjoyable evening thank you.
We booked here for my birthday as we were staying at Griffon Lodges nearby. I would highly recommend as the food was amazing and the service great. Thank you.
We love visiting Griffon Forest and Tykes - lovely friendly place and excellent food and service
Excellent Sunday Lunch enjoyed by our party of eight, will most certainly travel from Scarborough again to this Restaurant
Excellent Sunday roast as always still #1 & well worth the drive out
Lovely venue, good service and food.
Delicious food but very slow service. Accept it was busy but took 3 hours to have our meal with 2 young children which isn’t ideal
We enjoyed a lovely meal on Father’s Day. Food was outstanding. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Good service too.
The coffe was very weak, it apart from that we had an enjoyable meal with excellent service
The food was exceptional. Really good value for money.
Lovely food, as always. Little bit of s shame it took almost an hour for us to get our pre booked table.
Very enjoyable meal for taking my Elderly Father out for Father’s Day. Being a bit hard of hearing he commented on how nicely spaced the tables were which made it easier for him to hear our conversation. Food was very good ( maybe slightly slow service for some ) but we were in no rush and don’t mind that when the food is cooked fresh. All staff very polite, friendly and efficient. Only note would be we chatted about having larger family gatherings at Tykes but having 3 vegetarians in the larger family the veggie options were few and limited which may deter us - which is a shame as all else was excellent - maybe a couple more veggie options ??? Thank you !!!
Despite being really busy staff in attendance extremely helpful.
Lovely food and a beautiful venue
Consistently great food and service. Love the Sunday dinner and the fact you can have it on an evening and it’s as good as lunchtime. Friendly staff, lovely and clean, good wine list, local ales - keep it up!
