The Oak Wheel, Coastal Road, Burniston, Scarborough
Tuesday 30 June 2015
Pleasant village pub in Burniston, which is a few miles north of Scarborough on the Yorkshire coast. At one time there were pubs like this in most villages but they are increasingly becoming a rarity. It survives by doing what such pubs need to do these days - a few rooms, a lot of food, a quiz or two - and doing it rather well. We ate there and the food was excellent. We drank there and the drink was well kept and reasonably varied. I washed my steak down with a pint of Timothy Taylors' Landlord - always a safe pair of hands in foreign parts.
