“Ice cream from the good ol' dayz”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014 via mobile

Excellent ice cream set in a 50's style American parlour. Lots of choice & friendly service. You have to try Bananarama or Chocolate Nut. Definitely the best ice cream in Scarborough.

“The Main Reason We Went to Scarborough”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

We struck lucky in taking in Scarborough as part of our road trip on the hottest day of the year so far. The sun was shining, so what better day for us to revisit one of the best ice cream parlours in the country. If you take a seat at one of the counter stools, you can watch the girls creating sundaes for other customers, whilst you are eating yours.

“The only place in Scarborough for an Ice Cream!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

There are dozens of places in Scarborough where you can buy an Ice Cream, but if you want an award winning treat, then take yourself off to the Harbour Bar and enjoy something that has been delighting visitors to the oldest seaside resort in the UK for a very long time. No wonder it won so many prizes at the Great Yorkshire Show. Well deserved and absolutely imperative to have an ice cream there - no matter what the weather, the welcome is always warm at the Harbour Bar!

“Love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 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.
