“Love this place”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

Excellent location right on the front. Reasonable prices. Super friendly staff. Toilets are great. I have to say this is one of the cleanest places I have ever been to. On our last visit, it was getting towards closing time, and they close off sections of the bar to clean. Wow, they were like a SWAT team, cleaning every inch of the place from top to bottom. The harbour bar is probably cleaner than some hospitals!

I would definitely recommend this place. Very authentic.

Followed the numerous recommendations to this great great establishment. The range of flavours was as described and the place is a real gem. Our takeaway ice creams were served quickly and efficiently and oh those toppings!!

“best icecream parlour IN THE WORLD!”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Its been the same since before I was born. Why change a winning formula? perfect hard icecream + sundaes. . . .but the secret is, they also do wonderfully fresh toasted cheese n ham sarnies. .. . .with a superb bit of side salad. . . .have it with a little glass of horliicks. . . . . . it may seem a little odd to eat sandwiches in an icecream parlour, but try it - you'll like it!

“The most luscious ice creams!”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

We always have to visit the Harbour bar when we visit Scarbrough! The ice creams are the best! Fab traditional 60's feel and the servers always look very smart and retro in their lemon uniforms! I had a knickerbocker glory sundae and it was lush! My kids had a twisty cone and really enjoyed them. The only down side, as with many places in Scarbrough, they don't take debit or credit cards, cash only :-(
