Ever wanted to chill and eat on the edge of a cliff which overlooks the Pacific Ocean? It sounds very daunting to think you could sit just metres from a hundred foot drop into the waves that smash against the rough terrain at the bottom of the cliff.
As one of the South Coast's oldest hotels, Scarborough Hotel offers panaromic views of the ocean as it sits on the edge of a cliff. Visitors can choose to sit in the hotel or relax in the hut gazebos in the beer garden that backs up onto the cliff escarpment, where you can get a more direct look at the magnificent view.

With it nestled among small coastal towns along the South Coast, between Sydney and Wollongong, Scarborough Hotel is a quiet gem for tourists and visitors whom travel along the Grand Pacific Drive. It is an hour trip for those who travel from the Sydney CBD.
In terms of what is offered on the menu, seafood, salads, pastas and fish & chips are the options available to eat and delight in with the food cooked and prepared fresh. A bar, as within any other hotel, serves alcohol and beverages to visitors.
So if you feel like taking a day trip or if you are on your way down the South Coast, stop in at the Scarborough Hotel for breathtaking sights and a great lunch.

Great to hear Scarborough may have returned to its former glory. Our last visit 12 months was indeed disappointing - service, food, and value for money. Sadly it was a looooong lunch - we waited 1.5 hours for our very ordinary Sydney priced food to arrive. Fantastic venue and views. Thought it had closed. Nearly tempted to try it again.
Ugh don't bother, you wait just as long now, food is worse, more expensive and small serves, they have turned the place into an rsl style venue, staff wearing daggy uniforms, no cool pub feel about the place anymore. They certainly aren't looking after the locals, most of us won't step foot in there anymore, it's a shame
