Pre-Show Dining at Whitby Pavilion

The perfect way to relax and enjoy a seasonal two or three course with plenty of time to take your seat before the start of the performance.

With no anxious wait for the bill, and rushing from a restaurant to your seat, you can relax and enjoy a hearty home cooked meal from our seasonal menu from our Head Chef, served less than a minutes walk from the auditorium. 

Please arrive at the box office two hours before the start of the show (example 5.30pm for a show start time of 7.30pm), where our friendly staff will take you to your table to enjoy your freshly cooked meal.

Our fully stocked, fully licensed, bars are open throughout the duration of your meal. Our bars are stocked with a selection of beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks, giving you plenty of choice of beverages to accompany your meal. 

To add pre-show dining onto your show ticket call our Box Office on 0114 2 789 789 or book online with your show ticket.
