This is a beautiful tea room in Whitby. The building is amazing, a warren of nooks and crannies that wind back from the street and are candlelit. Friendly service, excellent coffe, tea and huge, delicious cakes and sandwiches. The best cafe in Whitby.

Love going here for a coffee. The coffee is always hot and the size of the cakes are very generous. plenty to look at and cosy when its a cold day out side. It can get full very fast so some time there can be a wait but we are happy to wait. At Halloween times they do the inside... More

We called in to this cafe twice over our weekend in Whitby, our first visit was faultless, however the following day when we walked in there were several free tables and we headed for one when we suddenly heard someone calling us back. A waitress asked us how many so we told her 2, she said there were tables available... More

The interior is so cool. The staff have to ring their order to the kitchen, and said the wrong thing, but it was really nice and only 25p different. The ciabatta is massive and so tasty.

Lovely quirky place with a good atmosphere. We ate lunch, had drinks and cake and the portion sizes were big! Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would definitely recommend. All staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely return!

My wife and I have visited many tea rooms across the land and this is our favourite. The tea and scones are divine. Been of Goth inclination, we absolutely love the decor and aesthetics of this fine establishment. Whenever we are in Whitby in October for the Whitby Goth Weekend Sherlock’s is a must at least once.

We visited this cafe for hot chocolate. It took an age to get served. My 12 year old son went upstairs to the toilet. The smell up there was overpoweringly awful. It made him feel sick. Also, a man burst into the toilet while he was up there, forcing the door. He was extremely upset about the smell and the... More

In need of a coffee we popped into this coffee shop with a difference. Great tasting coffee, nice pastries - ideal for a mid-afternoon pick me up. But the best feature is the character of the place, which is all about Sherlock Homes. Much better than visiting a standard chain coffee shop. Certainly recommend a visit.

We called here for coffee which was good. My partner and I both had cream scones which we both enjoyed. The decor in places is very tried but the place seems clean. We would go again.
