Very busy place, with friendly staff. Was reasonably priced. The scones were a bit dry on the outer-side compared to many we have had, but we still enjoyed them.

Called to this perfect delight on Saturday. We had the most delicious sandwiches, coffees and smoothies. This coffee house is a must with its unique decoration and atmosphere. The staff serving were lovely, friendly and welcoming. Next time we shall call to try a cake.

Never miss a visit to Whitby without going to Sherlocks. The Victoriana feel adds to the relaxing ambience of the place. Great for lunch or high tea and the Lemon Drizzle is the best!!!! The coffee's not bad either.

You don`t have to be Sherlock to work out what this cafe is themed on? Quirky interior design that you will either love or dislike. Cakes were very good and staff very accommodating.

Quirky cafe that has not changed at all since my last visit 10 years ago. Tea and cakes satisfactory but average, staff showed good knowledge of allergens. First floor room looked nicer than downstairs

Delicious coffee and cake, novel decor reminiscent of the Baker Street museum. Friendly staff, a welcome rest stop from the hustle and bustle of the town centre.

This is a beautiful tea room in Whitby. The building is amazing, a warren of nooks and crannies that wind back from the street and are candlelit. Friendly service, excellent coffe, tea and huge, delicious cakes and sandwiches. The best cafe in Whitby.
