Every time we visit whitby we call here... We love the biscuits, fruit cakes, chutneys, bread, and various bakery items... all make great gifts or treats for yourselves... We highly recommend both the biscuits and cakes on offer... worth the trip alone!

A wet Tuesday in Whitby and we decided to have afternoon tea at Bothams in a Skinner Street. The rooms are very elegant and service very friendly. We had the celebration tea which is afternoon tea with pro secco. All very good especially the little egg sandwiches, scones with cream and jam and the battenburg. Too much to finish and... More

While visiting the Whitby Abbey and exploring the town, we wanted a simple yet healthy lunch in a traditional tea-room. We found that at Botham's where we had simple sandwiches and salad along with lemonade in a wonderful traditional setting. We also enjoyed the tea for two along with fresh apple pie with custard, at first we were shocked to... More

My wife and I stumbled across these tearooms while exploring a street full of shops in Whitby. We went upstairs and waited in a line for well over half an hour to get a table, which in itself is an indication of its popularity and quality. Everything about the tearooms or restaurant was just right - service, food quality, table,... More

When in Whitby, the only place for tea is Bothams! I had to take my wife here to renew old memories of when her grandad took her here as a little girl. The waiting staff looked fabulous in their uniforms and they were all very welcoming. We had a pot of tea and lemon iced buns. Both were excellent. The... More
