Harbour Bar, Scarborough


When I went on my little trip last week, I was shown around Scarborough by my Yorkshire friend, Mel. The weather wasn't the greatest, but it was still good enough for ice cream and she took us to Scarborough's famous Harbour Bar. We'd had a massive breakfast at Ox Pasture Hall in the morning, so I was still stuffed from that by the time we got there, so I chose to go for jelly. In my head jelly wouldn't be as filling as ice cream, but by the end of it I felt prettttyyyyy sick. But in a good way. Harbour Bar has been open since 1945, and it's such a novelty time warp when you go in. The waitresses behind the bar still wear the retro 50's style uniforms, and the mirrored walls continue the whole vibe. There was so much to choose from on the menu, but luckily all three of us chose something different so I could pinch a bit of everyone's. In the big head glass there was a delicious maple coffee milkshake float, and the banana split was amazinnnggg. I love how the dishes they serve each thing in is different. The prices were a bit on the expensive side, but it's definitely worth a visit for the experience. I'm still intrigued by the 'bovril and crackers' on the drinks menu too!

After we stuffed ourselves silly with jelly and dairy goodness, we just pottered around on the beach and went for some coffee. As far as seaside towns go, Scarborough is probably up there with the nicest I've visited! It has a friendly feel to it with all the cheese you expect from the sea front shops, but without the dirty feeling of Blackpool or Newquay. The beach was clean, the arcades made your eyes bleed with all the lights, and there was a nice selection of little pubs to have an afternoon tipples and soak up the atmosphere too. I'll definitely be heading back - despite the 3 hour drive!

    1. It was amazing! I loved how authentic is was and not just pretending to be retro like these new diners and stuff that keep popping up!

  5. This is literally down the hill for me and I always look in (as I'm greedy and I want to eat ice cream everytime I walk past). If you ever come up you'll have to come into our pub for a tipple ;) it's weird how you were so close to me yet I never saw you!
