I treated myself to a hessian bag of 5 homemade cakes and 2 packets of biscuits, everything is so yummy, this is a gem of a bakery.

Located on Skinner Street Botham's is close to the heart of the old town and set in a wonderful traditional shop and tea room layout. It is like a step back to a gentile age. The bakery down stairs is excellent with a superb selection of delicious cakes. Not all of which appear to be available upstairs in the tea... More

We have been going to Botham's tea room for years and have always loved it. We still do use the bakery, their products are great but visited last week for afternoon tea as a treat and were really disappointed. The selection of cakes were poor (does anyone actually eat battenburg anymore?), another bun was very dry and the salad garnish... More

We called in for tea and cake whilst in Whitby and were really delighted with this place. A real old fashioned afternoon tea experience. Proper tea in a silver pot, hot water and the most brilliant cream cakes imaginable. What a real treat. The tea rooms is up some steep stairs and they even have a stair lift for the... More

We managed to leave the petulant teenager at home and escaped to Whitby to relive our mis-spent youth ! This involved being able to do exactly what we wanted for the first time in 17 years, without the endless moaning soundtrack playing in the background. A major part of this chill out/wind down holiday was the stroll to Mrs Botham's... More

Botham's bread, cakes, biscuits and pastries are all yummy - but the hidden gem is the tea room upstairs. Forget Betty's - this place takes you back in time with smartly dressed waiting staff in black and white uniforms, heavy white cloths on the tables and superbly friendly and helpful staff. For true indulgence try a full afternoon tea, served... More

Delightful place for all types of cakes, breads and fancies. Have their own little tea rooms and can definitely give Betty's a run for their money.
