This is a must do experience when in Whitby. Great vintage feel to the dining room and we had the famous tea loaf (Yorkshire Brack and the Date and Spelt) both were delicious as was the Tregothnan Earl Grey that accompanied it. Also fantastic value for money, we will be back!

Locals liken this bakery to Betty's. As one who lived in Harrogate for many years, there is absolutely no comparison. The sandwiches at Botham's are very reasonable but the cakes are ordinary.

Sorry, Harrogateblades, but I don’t understand why you are comparing us? We have been bakers and had tea rooms here in Whitby for nearly 150 years. We don’t set ourselves up to be like anybody else - We do what we do, in our own way. Your “Poor” 2 star rating is puzzling and hurtful. Did we offend you? Your... More

My first trip to this legendary tea rooms. I was delighted by the range and quality. The price was not quite as high as I'd expected.

I stopped by twice whilst in Whitby for things to eat out from the bakery. Both times I was not disappointed with the value for money, without having to compromise on the taste or quality; you can easily buy something for your lunch for under a pound. There is so much variation and choice on offer, all being delicious, that... More

There aren't enough superlatives to describe how good those biscuits are. I only wish we lived nearer so I could treat us more often - probably good for the waistline that we don't though!!

Best tea menu I've seen in ages and the ginger brack was fab. Rare breed pork pie from the bakery downstairs wasn't bad either!!
