Definitely most child friendly restaurant I have come across

We went last week to this restaurant and I must say all the reviews are true: the restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside but so child friendly inside: loads of toys around the restaurant plus a whole dedicated area for the children ( including pencils, different toys, books and... read more

Great family friendly cafe, great prices, great atmosphere where adults can enjoy their food and drink and kids dont get fed up as plenty for them to play with. This is our second visit and we will visit here each time we are in whitby.

We stumbled into the Bucket and Spade cafe and it was a highlight of our holiday! We enjoyed coffee, tea, hot chocolate and cakes, but the real treats were the toys and activities spread over...

The food was cheap enough, but the quality was not great and the place lacked a bit of atmosphere. It... More
