“A nice place to eat”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Always lovely fresh food and the girls all look good in period uniform. The cakes are Delicious and the take out sandwiches are really tasty.

I'd like to see the cafe offer a light breakfast though, perhaps eggs Benedict or something along them lines

All in all nice food

“Mothering Sunday Treat”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

My husband and I choose to take his parents to botham's for three reasons.
1. Excellent service without a doubt
2. Freshly prepared food and beautifully clean eating area.
3. Fabulous prices and food.

As always we were greeted by one of the lovely young girls, who seated us quickly and took our order just as fast.
Food portions are extremely generous, as are pots of tea. Nothing is too much trouble for the girls, and are always on hand to offer advice on choices and answer questions on the history of bothams.
Best value for money in all of north yorkshire!

“Maintaining standards”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

The staff are so friendly here, and all do their jobs really well. There just seems to be a high level of dedication and customer care. The fare is as expected. Botham's have been in business for a long time and I have often visited their Whitby premises. The coffee is good, the scones are good and the pork pies leave the competition well behind. Elizabeth Botham's tea rooms in Pickering are worth visiting but be aware at the height of the season, when the North Yorkshire Moors Railway is in full swing (opposite) you may not easily get a table. This of course spells success, so be patient and wait because it is well worth it.
