Dental Surgeries

Peasholm Dental Practice

43 Northstead Manor Dr, Scarborough YO12 6AF, UK – 01723 500340

Visited today for emergency treatment after developing toothache on holiday (home is Devon). Although this was one time only visit, the dentist (Emma Skipper) and nurse were brilliant. Thoughtful, reassuring, cheerful. If only all dentists were like this. Thank you!

Had an emergency dentist appointment here at the weekend. I live in Beverley and couldn't get a appointment any closer. I'm not a fan of going to the dentist (let's be fair it's a scary place) however I felt very compatible here. Very friendly and calming dentist and receptionist. Thank you.

Alma Square Dental Practice

They were accepting new NHS patients early 2017. I have had a tooth crown fitted there recently, no problems whatsoever. Delighted to have found a local NHS dentist after a lengthy search.

We have always had, and continue to receive, excellent all-round service from Dr Guest and her team.

The staff here have always been wonderful and helpful to my family and myself. Couldn't wish for a better service

Scarborough Medical Group South Cliff Surgery

56 Esplanade Rd, Scarborough YO11 2AU, UK – 01723 501610

It is more than a year that i am registered in this GP with my family, so far so good; But today, the end of september 2016, i waited more than 30 minutes to enter in the room 4, i state that when i arrived in total including me we were 3 patients in the waiting room and certainly there was not a single gp but at least 3-4. So i can say that this medical group lately is badly organized and there is not a supervisor who controls these doctors with little experience, and maybe they do expect their patients for to talk on the phone with some friends.

Brilliant surgery, you dont struggle like other practices to get appointments and at good times, not all 9-5! Highly recommend.

Falsgrave Surgery

Belgrave Cres, Scarborough YO11 1UB, UK – 01723 369440

Easy to get to and park good staff clean building,lift chemist.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Scarborough General Hospital

Woodlands Dr, Scarborough YO12 6QL, UK – 01723 368111

I attended today for ultrasound scan in the displaced dept in Haldane ward. (Repairs being done) Never been to Scarborough Hospital before but signposting was good so I found where I needed to go easily. I was treated very well. From arrival with reception staff and onwards. Very professional and welcoming. My privacy and dignity were very well secured and the lady that did my investigations was lovely. I thank them for making me feel welcome and comfortable.

Had the misfortune to end up in A&E in the early hours of Saturday morning in acute pain. Within 10 minutes of arriving I was assessed and taken for treatment where 20 minutes later I was pain free. In comparison to Pinderfields A& E in Wakefield this is a 5 star hospital, far far better. Staff are great, free coffee, sandwiches and take the time to explain exactly what they are doing to you, what drugs they are treating you with and how they work. The follow up appointment a few weeks later went just as well with only a 20 minute wait.

St James Church

I think this is a lovely church. So welcoming when I first came, 3 years ago. Such loving people. Come and join us.

St Martin on the Hill Church

Albion Rd, Scarborough YO11 2BT, UK

First, a qualification: I am not a fan of Pre-Raphaelite painting. Give me the Madonna in the Meadow or the Castelfranco Madonna rather than Prosperine or Ophelia. That said, I think I find Pre-Raphaelite stained glass more convincing than the oil paintings. Putting my taste to one side, this is an outstanding gallery of Pre-Raphaelite stained glass and painted decoration, which should be on the "must see" list of anyone with an interest in the genre or stained glass generally. St Martin-on-the-Hill is a High Victorian church designed by George Bodley, a pupil of George Gilbert Scott, and funded, principally, by Mary Craven, a South Cliff resident. It was Bodley's engagement of Morris, Marshall, Faulkner and Co that led to the stunning decoration of the church. This is Scarborough's seemingly unsung Pre-Raphaelite gallery, as well as a substantial Anglican church. Here there are stained glass and paintings by Morris, Burne-Jones, Rosetti, Webb and Ford Madox Brown. The decoration has a unified feel, which heightens the experience of the church interior. The glass designs, compositions, colours - vibrant and dense, without over saturation - and details are very impactful. It is well worth consulting the Friends of St Martin's web site before visiting and not only to establish the church's opening times. There is a short guidebook (£3 when I visited) available in the church, which is very informative. There was a church volunteer arranging flowers by the altar when I was there. Her comments were direct and incisive, as you would expect from someone from Yorkshire, and she helpfully pointed out things I would otherwise have missed. I failed to get an adequate photograph of what is hailed in the guidebook as "perhaps the finest window in the church." By Ford Madox Brown and showing two events in St Martin's life, it is located in the parish office in the south side, west end of the church. Entrance to the church is at the west end of the south side.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Scarborough

Lanterna Restaurant

33 Queen St, Scarborough YO11 1HQ, UK – 01723 363616

Ok, where do I start? A minor thing was that the restaurant was a little on the chilly side, so maybe it could do with the heating on a little earlier. Lanterna has a confusing feel. The restaurant itself has a family atmosphere, but the staff are a mix of characters. All are professional and courteous, but some are relaxed, and others feel like they're trying too hard. No sooner had we arrived, but we were delivered a speech about specials, about 6-8 dishes, some starters, some mains, in some detail. A little overwhelming to be honest. Then we were giving the menus to digest. By the time we'd been through the menu, I'd forgotten most of the specials. Don't let this put you off though, as the food is definitely the star. So, you can pick anything and not be disappointed. This isn't your typical Italian restaurant. It's not tomato everything. It's above average price range, but it's way above average food too, so worth it. The simple answer is, we'll definitely be returning. So if you've not been, give it a try, and let the food speak for itself.

Very well trained waiting staff and lovely food.

Az Restaurant

89 Columbus Ravine, Scarborough YO12 7QU, UK – 01723 366180

My favourite place to have dinner, hands down. The food is always incredibly tasty and the staff are friendly. The portions are a good size. Small place, so best to book a table... Soooo good!

Our first time eating at this restaurant and it won't be the last. I nearly didn't go as the chairs are wooden and having a bad back in have to be very picky where I eat. Cushions were provided after a quick telephone call and were even warmed up on the radiator for me! The menu is extensive and the food is absolutely fantastic! Tiramasu for pudding was the best we have ever tasted. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. Can't recommend this restaurant highly enough.

Lazenby's on York Place

11 York Pl, Scarborough YO11 2NP, UK – 01723 373836

Absolutely one of the best restaurants in Scarborough! A must... the owners are so welcoming and the menu is amazing. It may appear expensive, but for the quality of food and the service, it is well worth it. Lovely to have some French style cuisine here.

Not a big menu but I prefer that as what's on there is quality
