The tea room is through to the back and then upstairs. Very relaxed atmosphere and plenty of room for couples or families. Only tried the 'gunpowder green tea' which was very nice but didn't try the food. Free wifi is available however the connection is quite poor and regularly drops out. Staff were very friendly and polite.

Not cheap but high quality. Lots of choice and some unusual designs. Staff are helpful and friendly too.

Took a jet stud earing back to get a replacement butterfly. It was taken to the back office, and when it was brought back, the jet was no longer attached to the stud. I was advised to return the following day for the repair to be made as no technician was available. On doing so the jeweller told me it... More

Firstly, take NO notice of the proposed delivery date on the website when placing an order. The item that was ordered was proposed to be delivered within 24 hours, the day after ordering i receive an e-mail stating the item needs to be made which would take 3 days. (Don't get me wrong, the fact the item is hand crafted... More

I had my heart set on some Whitby jet for a special anniversary gift. We had always admired the various shops displaying it but to be perfectly honest W Hammond is the creme de la creme of shops. The young lady assistant was so kind, helpful and sweet without being pushy at all. She allowed me to try on the... More

A high quality shop with very helpful and friendly staff. I bought a pair of earrings - lovely quality, beautifully packed up for me with... More

This is a great shop!! Loads of lovely Whitby Jet (and other stone) jewellery to chose from. Problem is it is just TOO hard to chose and could quite easily spend a fortune!! I purchased a beautiful necklace, I love it, and although it cost me a small fortune I'm so glad I made the choice. Staff lovely and helpful.... More

Have made several purchases here and have always been pleased with what I've bought. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. I damaged a ring I'd bought there and it was repaired very much to my satisfaction. The fact that I live abroad was not a problem and the ring was posted to me after repair. Alterations I've had done... More
