Forming part of the Duchy of Lancaster's estate is The Blacksmiths Arms Inn in Cloughton, Scarborough. This historical inn is 250 years old and since the late 70s it has been expertly and sympathetically restored to the high standard that you see today. Filled with character, it's the perfect place to come and enjoy a weekend away - with quality food, a fine bar selection and great accommodation adding to the experience.
Wondering where the name comes from? Well it's simple, next to the inn is the area's only fully operational smithy.
The bedrooms include a double, twin, single and two special four poster rooms. Each is decorated and equipped to a high standard, featuring an en-suite bathroom, Freeview TV and tea/coffee making facilities.
Breakfast is included in the room rate.
The inn's dining room is oak beamed and provides a cosy and intimate atmosphere. A great selection of homemade specialties, bar snacks and lunches are available everyday, while Sunday is the place for Traditional Fare.
All courses are served with fresh market vegetables, boiled potatoes and hand cut chips. Everything is cooked fresh to order.
Below is a small sampling from the evening menu:
From the grill:
There's a real olde worlde atmosphere about the Blacksmiths' two bars, and despite a few modern conveniences like electric light bulbs, not a lot has really changed. On cold nights we get the open fire going, burning logs from the Duchy forest. Throughout you'll find fine furnishings and traditional furniture, it's everything you'd want and more from a historical English country inn.
Free Wi-Fi and on-site parking available.
Facilities are available for weddings, anniversaries, receptions and festive functions.
