Sunday Lunch At The Plough, Scalby, Scarborough.

21st September 2016crelgey

It wasn’t until our stay that I realised The Plough served Sunday lunches. From that moment, it was moved swiftly to the top of my list of places to visit, as if our evening meal was anything to go by, their Sunday lunches would be nothing short of perfection.


It was a lunch of both dreams and beauty.

The Plough’s Sunday menu features not only your roast dinner favourites of Beef, Pork or Chicken but also a choice of a gammon, pie, fish or vegetable dinner.

I chose the Glaves of Brompton topside of beef. Glaves is a popular local butcher, along with Stepney Hill Farm where The Plough source their loin of pork and is somewhere we frequent to get our own meat from, so we knew the beef would be amazing. Which it was. Without a doubt being one of the best pieces of meat I’ve had in a while.

Presented with the meat, Yorkshire pudding, gravy, roasties and in this case some mash potato a on your plate, with a small, yet adequate side dish of seasonable vegetables, which during our visit were broccoli and red cabbage.

When it comes to a Sunday Lunch, I’m normally too full for dessert, but I really wanted to have one and of course, it had to be the Sticky Toffee Pudding. I truly believe this and apple crumble is the only dessert to really have after a Sunday Lunch.

It didn’t disappoint. I had eaten this dessert before when I visited with friends a few weeks previous and it was exactly how I remembered it. Perfect. The sponge pudding was perfectly spongey and the sauce is out of this world. The kind that is so good but quite sickly at the same time. (I’ll definitely be ordering again though!)

I thoroughly enjoyed this lunch. I’d love to have it every Sunday and would definitely make room for the sticky toffee pudding! I wonder if they do take out? The staff were all really friendly and attentive.

    I have such a craving for Yorkshire Puddings now after reading this – your pictures are making me hungry! I've been on a Sunday brunch tour recently but as a result I'm on a strict fitness regime now – haha a bloggers life!

    Apple crumble/pie is one of my absolute favourites, I've actually never even tried a sticky toffee pudding before! That steak looks amazing as well, although I'm not craving one so those photos aren't doing me any favours, haha

      You definitely should Tom! If you need somewhere to stay, the rooms are amazing too! And I’ll always have the beef. 🙂
