Review – Flavours Bistro

Flavours Bistro was recently launched at Saint Catherine’s Hospice, inviting in the general public to help raise much-needed funds to help run this vital charity.

The charity very cleverly invited Head Chef Jon Smith to take control, a great move as he is a well known personality around the local area having worked previously at The Plough in Scalby Village and formerly in his restaurant ‘Peppers’ in Scarborough. In his own words: “I decided to join Saint Catherine’s because I was ready for a new challenge and it’s not often as a Chef you get the chance to do what you love but also find a way to give something back to a local community and a fabulous cause.”

Flavours aims to create a community hub ordering great food in an informal setting and from our experience today it has very much achieved that.

We received a very warm welcome as soon as we walked through the door, the place had a real buzz, filled with satisfied diners. We opted for one of the specials, the fish finger sandwich, which was delicious. It was accompanied by an a homemade potato salad which was amazing.

It was very busy, even on a Monday, so it may be advisable to book.

Initially only be open during the week from 9am to 4pm but once established there are plans to open evenings and weekends.
