We come here every time we are in Whitby, more than ten years now. Always good with a range of teas and coffees, yummy cakes and light meals. Traditionally dressed staff and ambiance with good service

I was charmed by the spacious tea rooms and had a plum loaf with butter and a Pot of their own resolution tea which is a nice blend of tealeaves (£2.75 for 80 bags intro offer) which came to just under £3 for the two items. There was free wifi and a nice seat on the sofa by the window... More

Got a lovely chocolate birthday cake from this classic bakery. It was nice and rich, full of flavour, good buttercream, not dry at all!! Good price as well. If you pass by, get yourselves a plum bread, it goes great with cheese!

Nipped in here late in the day but were welcomed and served in excellent style. Lovely tea room with great cakes (Yorkshire ginger with Wensleydale for instance) and good quality tea. Would certainly visit again for the full tea room experience.

Lovely place if you like old fashioned tea rooms and service. No more expensive than any high Street cafe but seems so much nicer. Disabled visitors can use a stair lift. Clean and tidy washrooms.

Four of us visited the tea room for a chat and a cuppa. We all had the savoury tea, which was a delight. Two tasty cheese scones, butter, relish, good strong grated cheese and a small but appropriate mixed salad. All very good and accompanied by Botham's own-blend Resolution tea, which is as excellent as Yorkshire Tea - high praise... More

Always find the service and food here reliably good. The daily specials are a good value option with a starter main course and sweet which will leave you fully satisfied. The rooms are well laid out and the table service is by staff in good old black and white attire, A really pleasant lunchtime experience in total

We sampled the bakery good and we're very impressed! One morning we had their croissants, which I have to say are nicer than any I've tasted the world over! The next day it was the flapjack, oh my, I could've eaten the whole tray! Delicious doesn't cover it! The other offerings look equally excellent and I shall definitely visit next... More
