The tea room is upstairs, above a jewellers - we sat in a window seat looking down on the crowds milling around in the street below. This was a peaceful haven, providing excellent food. My husband's smoked salmon sandwich had to be seen to be believed! The service was very good, bearing in mind that all the food is freshly prepared to order. Unfortunately, we were too full to sample any of the delicious-looking cakes - a perfect excuse to go back!

We have visited the tearoom before but never written a review. To get to the tearoom you walk through Hammonds the jet shop, some amazing things on display. The stare case up to the tearooms is spectacular. The view onto the street is great, sitting watching the world go by. Great cup of coffee and really tasty homemade cakes. Someone ordered a breakfast and it looked well presented on the plate and looked yummy. Great interaction with the staff. Would we visit again? Yes!

We've visited Hamonds tea room before so knew what to expect and it still lives up to expectations. Home made cakes (you can see them being made on the premises) are delicious and the staff are very friendly. Don't miss if you like afternoon teas and you're in Whitby.

Super service, great window views, scones and cakes delightful. Would definitely go again although it was rather pricey.

dropped in for a tea and scone - tea good honest Yorkshire strength but scone rather disappointing - dry, might have done better with cakes which looked good in the display and the sandwiches and salads I saw go out looked good and were freshly made to order. Located above the Jewelery shop at the foot of the 199 steps up to the Abbey.
