I visited Sherlock's on.a bitterly cold afternoon with the gentleman I support who has mild learning difficulties. He is very particular about his choice of food and setting, and may appear difficult because of his manner. I cannot rate Sherlock's highly enough. The staff adapted...More

Visited on the back of the excellent reviews. Place itself is nice and quirky and the staff are friendly, however the service was appallingly slow and products used not what you’d expect for the price paid. 40 minutes wait for a toastie and the cakes...More

Having been to this cafe several times now I would say that it's not nearly as nice as you hope it would be. The staff, while friendly, are young and not very interested in serving you. It doesn't have the atmosphere you'd hope for given...More

Popped in for coffee and a cake and was delightfully surprised at the range and quality of the homemade cakes, if you like your cake then you’ll love this place. Will certainly be returning soon.

Lots of Sherlock theme bits around the place, but enjoyed a drink & some welcoming hot soup on a cold day. At the time of the visit only took cash!

Perfectly positioned halfway up the hill meaning you surely must stop for resupply on your trek. Nice interesting decor but a little cosy, however we were only at the front and didn't explore further back. Friendly staff and great range of cakes.

Popped in for a coffee while we were having a day in Whitby with our dog. Not drastically busy ( it's heaving in summer! ) and got a seat easily enough. Just ordered a hot chocolate and a mocha. Problem being they took nearly 20...More

We dropped in for tea and a snack with our dog. Great food and the staff were super friendly and accommodating - they even brought a little plate of dog biscuits over. The café itself is gorgeous too.

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.
