About this Pub Accommodation

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.

Bedrooms / Bathrooms

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:


  • Classic prawn cocktail with Marie Rose sauce
  • Duck and hoisin spring rolls with sweet chilli sauce
  • Smoked salmon and mixed leaf salad
  • Soup of the day with a fresh roll

Main courses:

  • Sea bass in lemon and dill butter
  • Whitby scampi served battered or breaded
  • Blacksmiths chicken
  • Steak pie

From the grill:

  • Prime sirloin steak with onion rings, tomato and mushrooms
  • Lamb cutlets with a mint and red wine gravy
  • Grilled horseshoe gammon with onion rings, tomato, mushrooms and egg or pineapple
  • Prime fillet with a peppercorn and brandy sauce


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.
