We really like The Lighthouse. It is always sparklingly clean, service is friendly and prompt, and the tea and cakes are lovely. We've had lunch there on previous occasions and always visit when we go to Filey.

My first visit to Filey for 50 years. I had many happy childhood memories from Filey. On my return I was challenged when selecting a venue to eat.. We decided to try The Lighthouse Tearoom was our choice and oh boy were we treated to a cream tea that ticked all the boxes. We were served by a very delightful... More

It's not just the food that... More

Good, old fashioned tea room. Dropped in with the wife, her sister and brother in law whilst on holiday. Had the cream tea. Food was high quality; the scones light. The staff were very pleasant and we did not feel rushed while we ate. And best of all. The real China tea pots did not dribble from the spouts. We... More

A really pleasant, seaside themed tea room, with a nice selection of sandwiches/toasties and cakes - the homemade chocolate cake was delicious and surprising very light. The waitresses were lovely and attentive.

Visited the Lighthouse Tea Room on the recommendation of family who have been before, and it was lovely. A quirkily decorated little tea room just off the main shopping street in Filey, our party of five (four adults and a baby) received a warm welcome from the staff who were friendly and helpful throughout. We all had light lunches (sandwiches/smoked... More

Called in here on a Monday morning about 11ish before getting train home after a weekend holiday. My 2 friends and I opted for tea and home made scones. Our orders were taken very quickly and tea and scones were ready in a jiffy. Spacious and clean with polite friendly staff. Will definitely be coming again .
