Eating Out Scarborough & Whitby

Eating out with allergies

Eating out with kids can sometimes be something of a challenge (understatement of the year!) There are plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants in the Scarborough & Whitby area which really do welcome children and families so I’ve compiled a list of them here.

These places are not all ‘exclusively’ for families or children but they have all shown thoughtful touches or great facilities (things like pushchair access, changing facilities, highchairs and so on)

At Scarborough & Whitby Mumbler we are always looking to ‘spread the word’ if we find out about any little gems, so if you know of a pub, restaurant or café that should be included in this listing then please contact us here.

Featured Listing


In line with Government guidance on COVID-19, some businesses remain closed whilst others have the go ahead to open. Social distancing restrictions remain in place. For any of the listings on here please check with the venue if it is open or closed before attending.

I am endeavouring to keep the listings as up to date as possible but please check with venues first, thanks for your understanding at this crazy time, Team Mumbler.
