I like to consider myself a regular at the pavilion, and felt it about time I wrote a review for anyone considering a visit. I usually pop in for a cheese toasty at around midday, greeted most days by Steve (I think he's the owner). He looks like a cross between a wrestler, and a debt collector for a gang... More

We decided to do the afternoon tea dance in the Pavillion. Now we don't dance although Ann takes lessons in advanced Fox Trot but did not have a partner with her to show off her moves. In fact all three of us were partnerless but it didn't matter. Sitting at our table watching other couples glide around the ballroom wearing... More

This quick visit had all the hallmarks of an interesting look around this amazing building, part old, part new, with a spectacular view over the sea. On arrival we were greeted by a rather gruff man leaning against the reception asking us what we wanted. Well.. we wanted coffees, not the start of an interrogation. He did however show us... More

The Pavilion is ideally placed looking over the sea on Westcliff Whitby. Our most recent visit was to see a cinema showing of Star Wars Rogue 1. We find the Pavilion a very friendly place as it uses many volunteers to supervise and has facilities and events for all ages. The cafe allows dogs and because of that we started... More

We went to a show on a Saturday afternoon and decided to have a snack lunch in the cafe. The bacon sandwiches were excellent, the coffee good, the staff friendly and the venue was clean and tidy. And the show afterwards was pretty good too!

I spent a lovely few hours away from the crowds at the Pavilion on the 31st of December. The staff were very accommodating towards me and my lactose intolerant French bulldog "Claude". We enjoyed a perfect cup of tea, a tasty sandwich and packet of polo mints while enjoying a brilliant view of the beach and pier in the relative... More

Old fashioned cinema, but comfortable seats and pleasant staff. Whilst there take a look at the photos in the corridor to cinema, very interesting especially the... More
