Sherlock's coffee house is full of character and the cream teas were excellent. I left my reading glasses behind and Sherlock's posted them back to my home free of charge. They arrived this morning in the post, a big thank you to Sherlock's.

Superb setting and decor backed up by good staff attitudes and excellent quality food and drink. We went to Sherlocks several times in our stay in Whitby and couldn't fault anything we had there.

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.
