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

Over the last few weeks I've been to the Pavilion for several events. Great little theatre and events venue. Great coffee and great view. Lots of seating with sea views.

As always the Pavilion played host to the Bizarre Bazaar in the day and the bands in the evening. Everything always appears to be very, very well organised here. The venue very quickly transforms from day time buying to night time revelling almost seamlessly and makes each visit enjoyable

Attended a Whitby Live 60's weekend, brilliant great entertainment and good choice of food and drinks in the Pavillion including bar. There is also a cinema and theatre although we did not have time to enjoy those. Great beach and attractions very good indeed. Suitable for all.

As a music venue this place is great, a little dated, yes, but the drinks are reasonably priced and they're doing hotdogs/burgers/pizza etc all night long Set over two floors, there's a huge upstairs dance floor and the same again downstairs easily holding a couple of thousand partygoers. Extra portable bar downstairs is a welcome touch This isn't a nightclub... More
