We have only had coffee at Sherlock's but the food looks nice as do the cakes. We like it because It is quite quirky with little nooks to sit in. The staff are friendly and the service very good.

Discovered this excellent tearoom quite by chance exploring the streets of Whitby. An interesting insight into bygone days coupled with first class service.

Put aside the fact that I am a Sherlock Holmes nut: The scones are amazing, the decoration is perfect and very atmospheric, the choice on the menu was good (I had a very lovely smoothie, which I recommend), great location for anyone in the area, very cosy without being stifling and... Well, I could go on forever. Suffice it to... More

I have been to Sherlocks a number of times over the past few years and it is going down hill. I was last there in March 2014 and thought I would give it another chance now it is a new year. It used to be much better than this. On entering we stood at the desk to get a seat... More
