“overpriced drinks”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

the venue as a whole is good apart from the usual toilet problems never enough ladies toilets, however not allowed to take your own food or drink into the venue, the only reason I can see for this is the provision of an overpriced bar food prices not too bad.

“What a great night!”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Went to this fabulous venue last night to see Status Quo along with their special guests Uriah Heep. What a great night! All drinks & food were very reasonably price for a gig & what a wonderful venue. We had front row seats but no matter were you sat you would have a good view. Hope to visit again sometime.

“Status Quo”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Brilliant opening act, The Remedy, local band. Didn't like Uriah Heep,...too loud by far. The Quo were excellent as usual. The theatre is good drinks and food expensive though.

“good experience”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

we went to last night of the proms at the open air theatre scarborough. we were lucky as the sun shone . the entertaiment was 100 percent we sat i white area quite near the top the view was good. there was plenty of stalls for drinks and food quite expensive and toilets at all entrances. fire work displays was really good and would go again. afterwards as we left and walked down to the corner end of theatre there was 3 buses waiting to drop people off all over the area so we caught one home for 2 pound each and enjoyed the ride round town then home to ayton. all staff were helpful and friendly.
