Paid a visit for afternoon tea and were greeted by friendly staff. Ordered afternoon tea of a pot of tea scones jam and clotted cream. One of the creams had to be replaced but this was done without query and friendly. This was a good experience and a good cost

Called here again with my wife on Saturday 13/8. Once again we were met with a young waitress who is so pleasant and friendly. My wife had the bacon baguette and I went for the Welsh Rarebit. All I can say is that both meals were really nice. The owner goes out of his way to speak with his customers... More

My friend and I had a light lunch here after walking out of another café without eating there! We were greeted in a friendly way and our order was taken quickly. My roast ham sandwich was delicious, as was my friend's scrambled egg with smoked salmon (after they added the forgotten smoked salmon!!). Don't expect gourmet cuisine here - it... More

Visited today based based on TripAdvisor reviews - I'm always sceptical when a place has such good reviews but this tea room warrants it. We called in for a mid-afternoon meal and were really impressed with the service, the quality/price of the food and the general cleanliness of the place. As soon as we walked in, the owner was welcoming,... More

This is a lovely little tea room with photos of lighthouses around the room (taken by the owner I think). It's very friendly, good service and I've had lunch and coffee there a few times now and enjoyed it every time

We stumbled upon this lovely teashop by accident sheltering from the summer rain! Ordered lunch for 2 adults and 2 children delighted that our request to change the order for our fussy 5 year old was accommodated. Lovely food well presented in a genuine English teashop. Would recommend this teashop as a must to visit in Filey.

Ordered two afternoon teas which would have served 3 or 4. Got the Lighthouse Lunch which was also excellent. All service, cleanliness and food was first class.

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

Visited a little after the start of lunchtime on a Thursday - we wanted a cream tea whilst on holiday in Yorkshire, but with me being diabetic it needed to coincide with a 'mealtime' so lunch it was but no-one batted an eyelid at us ordering a full afternoon tea at just gone 12.15pm!!! It's not just the food that... More
