Scarborough - Food & Drink

Oriental food

Decisions, decisions… A tray of crisp, golden chips with salt, vinegar and a wooden fork, eaten in the fresh air? Or dinner at La Lanterna Ristorante, which one national critic reckoned was worth the 400-mile round trip from London just to eat there? In Scarborough, you can have either – or both!

From award-winning ice cream on the seafront, to high end restaurants in the town centre and outskirts, via excellent international cuisine, you’re sure to find something to make your tastebuds happy, whatever your favourite food. And, of course, if seafood is your thing, you’ve come to the right place – Scarborough still has a thriving harbour, with boats out daily catching fish and shellfish, including delicious crabs and lobsters.
