Had a good light at this traditional restaurant / tea rooms, also do very good cakes and scones. In addition to this outlet we found the factory shop on the outskirts of Whitby very good for a coffee and cake stop.

You wait to be seated on arrival inside the first floor tea room and are then shown to your table by a smartly dressed waiter/waitress. The best tables are in the window as you can see shoppers strolling along the street below. The whole room has a refined air where I can imagine generations of ladies sipping tea wearing hats...

This is a must! The choicest fruits infused with Botham's own blend tea baked in an irresistible tea loaf, best eaten sliced and buttered with cheese or preserves and a refreshing cuppa. When we're in Whitby, it's pretty much our first purchase. Enjoy!

Both and is located in the pedestrian precinct and is a good place for a refreshing cup of coffee and a tasty snack after a busy day. The food is all fresh and looks very tasty.
