This gallery was recommended to us by the guys who run Dillons of Whitby. We are so glad we visited. A wonderful collection of art by local artists; paintings and sculptures in a variety of mediums. Add to that, a café serving drinks, cakes and lunches. A great, friendly place to visit.

Coast has just re-opened after their Christmas break and they have worked their usual magic with another stunning display by local artists. There is so much to see and it's all so cleverly displayed. How is it that when you go to a public art gallery the displays are often so turgid that they seem to suck the life out of the work but when you visit somewhere like Coast everything is so vibrant? The answer I think is that they try harder. Although I have reviewed this place before it merits another mention simply because it is so different each time you visit. Some things however never change: the warmth of the welcome, the strength of the coffee and the tastiness of of the food on offer. Add to this the knowledge of and enthusiasm for the work on show and you have the perfect spot of lunch and culture in one relaxing package.

A visit to the coast gallery is always on our list when we go to Scarborough. A beautifully light and airy building with a wood stove for the cooler months, it is a treat to sit surrounded by the works of art ondisplay.The friendly owners serve excellent food and coffee, anything from a piece of tray bake to a light lunch.
In addition they select all the artists and works to be shown in the gallery and the exhibitions Change regularly with high quality art and crafts at a variety of prices.

Well worth a visit whether you are looking for something a bit different or just a good coffee.

How lovely is it to find a gallery full of true art and craft, with the added bonus of having a super lunch or afternoon tea. The quality of art and food is excellent. This was a rare find.

On trips to the east coast a visit to the Coast Gallery for me is now compulsory! What a pleasure it is to be greeted by such friendly staff- no hustle and bustle of queuing for self service in an airless crowded place- and it is always difficult ro make a choice from the delicious sandwiches, cakes and pastries on offer but the chococlate cake- oh the chocolate cake- is wonderful. The establishment is spotlessly clean and it is wonderful to browse around -there is always something different to see and the items on sale are crafted and painted by people obviiously of much talent. Although it is not compulsory to buy anything at the gallery I usually buy some cards from the selection of excellent ones - being a 'card' person I find the range here to be first class. I look forward to visiting again for more chocolate cake please!
