Went to the S.H.A dinner dance on Saturday. I was told the Ocean Room was a cold place, far from it, it was nice and warm. Food was OK, a little bland, service as very good with nice hot plates, I did think that water should have been provided on the tables. Entertainment was good. A great venue for functions.

Been there scores of times, from the days of Max Jaffa onwards. You used to be able to buy tea/coffee and take them up onto the roof. The Spa theatre used to have a resident coemedian called Frankie Desmond and the Ocean Room used to have wrestling. Seen Doctor Death and Big Daddy there. Been to several excellent conferences over... More

We spent our new year in Scarborough and treated ourselves and the family to the dick whittington pantomime in the spa theatre. We enjoyed the whole experience immensely, the kids loved it and the adults, great theatre, well done to everyone involved.
