“The Golden Grid, a Scarborough institution!”

“Delicious food, wonderful views and friendly service!”

Overlooking Scarborough Harbour, The Golden Grid was established over a century ago and has been owned by the Senior Family since 1954.

For Fashionistas and Film Addicts…!

In 2015 the Golden Grid was chosen as a location for the Ted Baker Summer Fashion Shoot, “Island Life” 
For the TV addicts amongst you the restaurant may be familiar as it has been used as a set on many popular TV series, the most recent two being “Jack Frost” and “Where the Heart Is”. The restaurant was also recently featured in the popular BBC series “Holiday Swaps”

In 2014 the Film, Adventurer Curse of the Midas Box based on a GP Taylor best seller hit the screens, starring Michael Sheen, Sam Neill and Lena Headey.
