On Sunday 9th October we were looking for a cafe that accepted dogs and so went to Becketts. There were 10 of us and they were quite busy but they rearranged the tables to fit us all in. They were really welcoming and totally unfazed by such a large group. The food was fantastic but I would particularly commend the... More

Visited here on trip out to Whitby from Pickering & loved the place! Really friendly staff who fussed over our dog! Pity we only had coffee as good looked amazing but it was nearly lunchtime & we'd set our hearts on fish & chips on the harbour! Loved all the books....could definitely see people enjoying a good read with their... More

Before visiting Whitby had looked up dog friendly cafes as we had our jrt puppy with us and this place had great reviews. We found the cafe before finding the cash point and were impressed when the friendly young man kindly offered to serve us and let us return with the cash. Decided I would wait inside with pup and...

Our favourite place to eat in Whitby! This small but friendly cafe serves simple and delicious home-cooked food. They do a good range of paninis alongside a choice of two or three hearty and satisfying soups. The choice of these varies from day to day, but I would particularly recommend the spicy lentil and coconut. The cakes are amazing, and... More

Weary after a drive out along the coast, an inviting frontage surpassed only by the warm and friendly welcome inside. A really lovely place to relax and enjoy super home style food in friendly large portions. We will return :)

Called in for coffee and cake again whilst visiting this wonderful town. The coffee's were served piping hot and quickly given that all tables were full. The homemade cake Raspberry and White Chocolate was absolutely scrumptious. It is just a delight to have a place that actually makes delicious home made cakes. The panini's looked lovely too with big fillings.... More

Beckett's is a lovely little cafe on Skinner Street. It was probably the first dog friendly cafe in town and now many others are following their lead. You'll get friendly staff, good coffee, tasty paninis, homemade soups and the most fabulous cakes. Well worth a visit, even if you don't have a dog. While there, you can also browse the... More

Beckett's is a small, family-run, dog-friendly coffee shop off the beaten track in lovely Skinner Street. We serve a small but ever-changing menu made from local ingredients where possible including delicious soups and 'beckanini' - which are large, soft and not gum-cloggingly dry. Our cakes are all sticky and home-made using real butter and free-range eggs (the rhubarb and custard cake is a favourite) and new this year are home-made cookies. The coffee is delicious and all Fairtrade.
