Found this with mum and dad while on my first family holiday in 17 years. Having eaten a lot of chips and treats I was craving some healthier fare, and their butternut squash and chilli soup was well received and wonderfully tasty, with lovely thick chunks of seeded bread.

Helpful friendly staff, not a lot of choice with savouries on the menu. Just had a cheese and onion toastie with a soft drink. No complaints about the snack just wasnt much i fancied on the menu. The decor was interesting though and done in a victorian style.

Great little find in Whitby. Thought it would be too touristy, but not at all. Delicious freshly baked scones.

We visited Sherlocks twice this week and really enjoyed exploring this Sherlock Holmes themed cafe. The menu isn't especially extensive, but sandwiches and cakes are all very good indeed. My cappuccino turned out to be a latte, but OK if that suits.
