Whenever we travel to Whitby we look forward to picking up,our lunches from Bothams Bakery, delicious sandwiches , cakes, quiche and pies. A lunch in Whitby would nor be complete if we did not buy it from Bothams.

Our second visit to Bothams and yet again full marks. Visited on a Saturday afternoon. Quite busy so had a short wait. Tearooms spotless, food excellent. We had ploughmans and pie and peas. Both very enjoyable and filling. Staff very friendly. Prices reasonable. Would recommend

What is there left to say? Whitby wouldn't be Whitby without Botham's! Compared to their lemon buns, the M&S 'Whitby Bun' is a pale, stodgy imitation.

During a short stay in Whitby, we struggled to find any decent places for a simple and fresh lunch until we stumbled across Bothams on Sinner Street. There is a large bakery with a tea room / restaurant upstairs which is not all that obvious unless you have a proper look, and has a long history in Whitby. It was... More

This time was different and three of us came for coffee and cake. I was very surprised by how nice it was. The tearooms are decorated in the Georgian style and... More

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
