Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Indigo Alley

The name might suggest a brash nightclub with gaudy neon lighting, but the reality is something completely different: an ultra-basic alehouse, with bare boards and very limited decor. Covered pool table by the back wall. Good selection from the six handpumps, including Wentworth Oyster Stout (£2.80). Worth stopping by if walking to or from the North Cliff area.

Old Boots left this review about Indigo Alley

A pub that belies its name and exterior, inside is classic "alehouse" style; bare boards, plain walls, old stuff decor with a mix of scruffy furniture and six hand pumps of obscure micro breweries beer, some at wacky gravities. It's also got the tongue and groove, bench seating, darts that ale houses need as well as pool and screens for modern day traditionalists and some musical instrument sculpture for others. GBG2014 listed and the beer quality is well up to the mark. It benefits from a small smoking area beyond the lav's and it advertises itself as "sprog and dog friendly", neither there on my visit but very busy with middle aged punters. The beers were all £2 a pint which may or may not have been due to the CAMRA AGM circus being in town. Live music Friday and Saturday. Beside the fire place is a small photo of the pub is its former guise of the Nottingham Hotel and a quick look above the outside door showed the same words still carved there.

Still doing a good job, the Marston's beers have now gone and there are changing guests alongside Indigo Ale, a rebadged brew from Wold Top. Note that it doesn't open until 4 Mon - Thur.

Well I'm pleased to report that Indigo Alley is now back in the land of the living. It's had a bit of a spruce up and looks a lot brighter. It's very sparsely furnished and there was a covered pool table pushed up against the wall. The landlord was friendly enough and the beer was in decent nick. They have Wychwood Hobgoblin on as a permanent and a couple of changing guests. These were Wychwood Wychmyst and Partners Spike's during our visit. It's got a bit of a way to go before it's gets back to it's very best under the original management, but at least a good start has been made. Best of luck and we'll call back in next time we're in Scarborough.
