The owners of a refurbished Scarborough pub will be hoping its Michelin-starred pedigree will make it a culinary hot spot for visitors.
On Monday The Plough at Scalby finally reopened after being closed for more than two years.
The six-figure refurbishment has transformed the building in the heart of Scalby and it now offers a menu of “Yorkshire Tapas”.
Its owners, Nick and Sandra Thomas of Qdos Entertainment, are running the pub and restaurant as part of their HQ Collection of businesses, which also includes the Copper Horse in Seamer.
A spokesman fro Qdos said: “James Mackenzie, of the renowned Pipe and Glass Inn, has created new and exciting lunch and dinner menus, all inspired by Yorkshire ingredients.
“Led by Head Chef Jon Smith, his talented team use the very best local and regional ingredients to produce great British food from seasonal game, fresh fish, aged steaks, local cheeses and indulgent desserts.
“A tempting range of lighter lunch options, sandwiches and tapas-style sharing plates can also be enjoyed as well as traditional Sunday roasts complete with Yorkshire Puddings and all the trimmings!
“The Plough offers a wide range of international quality and contemporary wines offering a broad geographic reach.”
The pub dates back to 1899 and will soon offer people visiting Scalby a place to stay.
“Continuing its heritage as a place to stay, The Plough will offer next year eight luxury en-suite bedrooms,” the spokesman added.
“All of the rooms combine traditional and contemporary styles and reflect the owner’s passion for quality and the charm of the countryside. Luxurious steamer trunks, stylish furniture and architectural hand-made four-poster beds are set amidst wool throws and plump cushions.
“Every Sunday The Plough will host Unplugged – an evening of free acoustic music between 6.30pm and 9pm which kicks off this Sunday with Tom Davenport – providing a fun-filled night.”
