Sunday Lunch At The White Lodge Hotel, Filey – AD
This post is in collaboration with The White Lodge
Sunday Lunch at The White Lodge, Filey.
The White Lodge Hotel is perfectly situated at the end, or the beginning if you prefer, of The Crescent. A road adorned with Instagram-friendly white homes and hotels, overlooking some beautiful gardens and below that, The Beach road and pretty self-explanatory, the beach.
The exterior of White Lodge is not that modern, in the grand scheme of buildings, however once inside, especially into the restaurant area, it is beautifully and simply decorated and modernised. The pale greys and blues complimented the sea, which sits in the background as a stunning backdrop to the open restaurant, which is mostly glass. This allowing you to really make the most of where you were whilst eating. Very much a key point to Sunday Lunch Filey.
It’s always nice eating at places that appreciate their visitors wanting to know where their food has come from. More so from a business perspective, it’s great knowing local businesses support each other. It was great to see this is the case with White Lodge. At the bottom of their menus, was a statement saying this, which actually made us a little excited for our main course. The supplier, Glaves of Brompton, is one of our favourite butchers whom we use ourselves.
The Sunday Lunch At White Lodge, Filey.
With a choice of Butternut Squash soup, Breaded Fish cakes, Chicken Pate or Melon Pearls, I decided on the Breaded Fish Cakes for a starter. The cakes came well presented and accompanied by a small pot of homemade tartare sauce.
Although breaded, the cakes had a crunchy exterior, so had possibly been fried, however, this was not evident at all through taste. Although they were fish, they were a little tasteless and could have done with a bit more fish, but, as a starter, they filled the hole. The tartare sauce was amazing and definitely made the dish.
I love a simple presentation and the ability to add my own vegetables and The White Lodge didn’t disappoint. The beef came beautifully laid across roast potatoes and covered in gravy.
The beef itself was lovely and it was a surprise to be asked upon ordering how we would like our beef cooking, rare or well done. The choice of vegetables were perfect selection and cooked well.
Desserts. The choices were: Apple Pie, Blackberry Eton mess, Honey Creme Brûlée and Vanilla cheesecake. I opted for the cheesecake, which came, as you can see, well presented on a plate with a strawberry and a dollop of chocolate sauce. I wasn’t entirely on board with the strawberry and chocolate sauce, but if anything it added some colour. The cheesecake itself was perfectly sized and ratio od base to topping. Very light and fluffy.
In conclusion, our Sunday lunch at The White Lodge Filey, Scarborough was thoroughly enjoyed out first visit to White Lodge Hotel, I’m sure it wont be our last.
