Have visited this restaurant along with many others over the years and left after this year's experience with mixed feelings . The restaurant offers a traditional style of dining with regard to decor and service all of which is fine. The staff were friendly and efficient and catered for our party of six, including two infants without fuss, providing crayons... More

I have been visiting Bothams for years and years, treat yourself to an afternoon tea in the upstairs tea room. Stylish interior fromyesteryear, laid out tables reminds one of things past, cream cakes to die4, sandwiches with the crusts cut off. A memory trip in reality.

Very much in the style of Betty's in Harrogate but not as 'stuffy'. Food was excellent, service very good, prices reasonable. The shop is an extravaganza of breads and cakes good job I don't live nearby, I would be putting on pounds.

Raining hard so called in for coffee and bacon sandwich. Very tasty and good value for money. This is served into 11.30 am as breakfast sandwich together with coffee or tea for £3.80.

Quick stop for refreshments and must say we found an excellent establishment selling tea & cakes as how it was served years ago. Their cakes were excellent, we sampled the apple turnover and strawberry cheesecake with cream and they were baked to perfection. Their own blended tea was very refreshing as well and also very reasonable. It was rather cramped... More

Visited the tea rooms in Skinner Street for lunch, we have been before last year whilst in the area and also the one in Pickering last October, they never disappoint. Charming surroundings, polite staff and excellent food, you cannot ask for more. The tearoom is not open on Mondays, has good access including a chair lift as it is on... More

Went here for afternoon tea was a real letdown. Pitifil finger sandwiches and the cakes weren't great. Shame.

MikeBRG, Owner at Elizabeth Botham & Sons, responded to this review

Dear Paul, Our sandwiches are freshly made to order and the cakes and pastries are made daily by our wonderful craft bakers here on the premises. So we are somewhat disappointed to hear you didn't enjoy your visit and you felt that £10.95 for a full waitress service and afternoon tea is not good value for money. More
