Description: This is a beautiful tea room in Whitby. The building is amazing, a warren of nooks and crannies that wind back from the street and are candlelit. Friendly service, excellent coffe, tea and huge, delicious cakes and sandwiches. The best cafe in Whitby.

“Atmospheric ! can't wait to return.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

Visited Sherlocks for the first time in December on a cold Saturday afternoon. Wow! A trip back in time with great light food. Had a toasted sandwich only but our friends had tea and scones which were huge and they said were delicious We really enjoyed the experience and would recommend Sherlocks without hesitation . What's not to like?

“A great place to enjoy a coffee and sandwich”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

We've visited Sherlocks a few times now. It never fails to deliver on the quality and quantity of food, and offers some fab home made cakes!

The only downside ( if there is one ) is it can get a bit cramped in Sherlocks. Not the place to try and take in a pushchair for example, the tables are a bit too close to one another to make this sensible.

Other than that, there's absolutely nothing negative about Sherlocks, very good in all areas...food, coffees, staff. Well worth a visit, it wouldn't be your last.

“Best in Whitby”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

Great cakes, fab coffee and tea - look no further than here for a pit stop during your visit to Whitby. The paninis and cream teas are lovely - the slabs of cake are delicious and the prices low. Elementary...
