The Ham and Cheese dates back to 1907 and before this time was one of the first farm shops in the country. Local farmers used to bring their produce to sell here and it is believed that the inn takes its unique name from this time. We are situated in the quiet village of Scagglethorpe, 2miles from the market town of Malton. We are just off the A64, 18 miles either way to either York or Scarborough.
The Inn is proud of its reputation for good quality home cooked food, real ales and log fire. Accommodation is above a quiet, traditional public house and restaurant offering superb bar meals, a la carte menu, real ales from the bar and a lovely log fire. The Ham & Cheese offers 4 ensuite rooms on a Bed & Breakfast basis and has rooms available for single, double, twin or family occupancy.

Situated on the river Derwent, it is an ideal location for discovering the beauty of the Yorkshire countryside.
