Looking for a place to have a meal with a great view, then this is it !!! No question about it !!!! The views are amazing. The venue has an amazing garden and deck area. Great for both adults and children to enjoy the afternoon. The staff are great, and super efficient. If you can, make a booking, it gets busy. If you don't have a booking, get there early as later on in the day if it is super busy it can revert to bookings only Once you get in there grab a menu, find a seat, order a drink and then order your food, that too (food orders) can get very busy, but the kitchen is really quick and the wait isn't too long. The food is super tasty (the pie is really popular). Had a really relaxing afternoon watching the day go by. Will definitely be back for another enjoyable afternoon.

Came on a weekend around lunch and it was packed! Difficulty finding parking outside was an indicator. But it wasn't long before we found a table on the lawn, which had amazing views of the ocean. I can imagine on a hot day these seatings areas would be unbearable. We ordered the seafood pie and Asian salad. Both were okay, but it's simply pub food quality. You also need to collect your own food from upstairs, including getting the water and cutlery. This place had awesome vibes however, as you can bring your dog, it had a chill family vibe. Would recommend coming with friends or family and soak in the views over some nice chips and a drink

What an absolute beautiful part of the world... get away from Sydney and visit The Scarborough Hotel just south of Sydney. .. perfect day overlooking the ocean. Meals onsong. Oysters to die for... absolutely perfect... do yourself a favour and visit this place for lunch. Amazing ??

Amazing views but overrated food. We had 2 meals with a side of garlic bread for $90 including the exorbitant $9 surcharge, especially considering there is no table service. Small portions by Aussie pub standards. Go for the view, not the food

There is literally nothing more I could ask for from a pub style restaurant. The food was incredible, the service was on point (never had an empty plate or cup on our table for longer than a couple of minutes) and friendly, and the view... my god the view. Not only do they offer a 10/10 view, but the way they've organised their seating, especially their outdoor space, is perfect. There's plenty of seating but no one is on top of one another. A variety of table sizes. Umbrellas to shield you from the sun. And a completely unobstructed view no matter where you are, somehow, I don't know how they do it.

Would never hesitate in recommending this place and will most certainly be back. Would literally drive the hour from my house just to come here for a few hours and enjoy the atmosphere with a good feed. Decent selection of beers on tap, too.

Parking is fine, not great, but not bad. I'd say you're sacrificing more parking for a larger outdoor space and more view... which is worth it.

First time visit. Very nice views
It is a limited space for a car park. Must be really busy on weekends.
But what u get from this venue is the view and food quality.
We ordered seafood pasta, seafood pies, beef steak, and fish. All of them were really good presentation and tasty. I'll recommend 100%. Price and cocktails are reasonable. It was waiting time were a bit longer, but when you see the view from outside, you can just wait and chill.

You are paying for the view because the food is pretty average, you order from the table and have to go pick up (two flights of stairs if sitting on the grass picnic table below).
Very self service, and prices are kind of steep for what you get. View is amazing though. Good place to sit for the afternoon make sure to bring sunscreen as not much cover.

Came down for a nice day out and thought this would be a beautiful spot to have some lunch, the views are amazing, the service not so much! After paying $36.00 for a "200g" barramundi fillet with a handful of chips (probably about 15) (sauce was $2 extra) we politely asked why it was so expensive for such little food, the manager responded with "don't know what you want bruz" this language took me aback. So incredibly rude. Come here for the views, and if you're willing to spend your weekly wage on a mouthful of food and a glass of wine.

Barra and chips $32. Check the photo!
The poached chicken salad was more like a side dish of lettuce.
$10 bowl of chips was cup size.
OMG your menu is a disgrace.
2 adults and 2 kids - $170 lunch.

Lovely spot with grand views out in the back beer garden. Loses marks for not having Schooners available, only pints or half pints. Ate elsewhere beforehand, so will revisit and review again.

If you want a table best to book ahead. If the rain isn't coming at you sideways then it cam be quiet pleasant even in the rain. Just pack a jacket. Service can be a little slow, but a great place to pop into on a weekend drive

Came for coffee and ice cream and it was lovely. We sat in the pretty garden where you can also take your fur baby. The waitress was so nice, definitely a plus point!

Beautiful location on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon! It's only one hour drive from Sydney, not to mention the priceless views.
The fish and chips was delicious, it was soft and flaky, not too fishy at all. The beets and pumpkin salad was flavorful with just the right amount of dressing. Burgers, pasta, prawns and oysters were also on the menu. They have a great selection of items for everyone. A very classy place with great service! Highly recommended

This location is fantastic on a bright and sunny day. Nothing like pub food and beer with a view. However like the other comments, can be better with the quality of food. Got the beef burger and chicken burger. I'd rate it above average for the food so def still room for improvement. Will recommend this as a pit stop if you're driving past Sea Cliff Bridge.

The ocean view is stunning. We came at 11am without reservation and were lucky to get a big table in the balcony! On-site parking is quite limited. Burger is a bit dry and other food are average...paying the price more for the view :) it's still worthwhile to pay a visit here.

Staff were very accommodating and friendly, considering we arrived at time the kitchen was preparing to close! They have a clever and efficient ordering system.
Even on an overcast day, the atmosphere at the Scarborough is very relaxing and beautiful. The garden is designed to tolerate some wet weather so you can still enjoy yummy, fresh food with an exquisite ocean view.

Excellent location and delicious food, however it is a bit expensive and a 15% public holiday surcharge doesn't help. Also had to wait almost an hour for the food today as they were understaffed. I really did enjoy the seafood pie and pasta though, and would like to come back when it is less busy.

Beer always hits the spot. Meals are.... portions are very small for the $$. Location is A+++. Edit- I was wondering if my view on the food was experienced by others and upon review of the review I was not surprised. When will this establishment take note that food quality and portions are important. With this location it could be rated up there with the best hotels on the east coast.

A wonderful lunch experience.
Glorious day to be sitting near the water and enjoying a seafood plate with the best quality, fresh oysters and prawns. The fish and chips was generous and fresh. Finished meal with an excellent cup of coffee.
Great value for money. Will be making the trip to this establishment again very soon.

Really enjoyed my lunch at Scarborough hotel. Beautiful scenery with nice food, but a little over priced for what you get. Not a huge menu but should cater to most people's needs. Really helpful and lovely staff.

Great views, food is extremely overpriced, but I guess you're paying for the location
