I was last in Whitby 10 years ago and can recall having a lovely lunch here. However, on this occasion the service and menu choices were great, but the food didn't quite hit the mark. I ordered the fishcakes, which were beautifully presented with salad & coleslaw....but didn't taste of any fish!!!! I hope it was a one off.

This tea room is very classy. Lovely table settings and quality waitress services. The food is delicious and is on sale at the front of the shop to take away. We were working at the NYMR wartime weekend last weekend. Their pork pies and blitz biscuits are very tasty. The portions are substantial from soup, sandwiches or warm meal. Lots... More

Despite having lunch during the 1940's event and the place being packed, staff were friendly and efficient. Our food arrived pretty quickly and was a pleasant surprise. Really generous portions, fresh and tasty. Considering the pressure on staff we were not kept waiting or rushed and had a pleasant relaxed meal.

We thought we were just having a sandwich with our coffee but when it arrived with a beautiful side salad not just a garnish we knew why we had been given a knife and fork! Lovely fresh bread, delicious and varied choice of menu. We had lunch but the afternoon teas looked wonderful. Extremely friendly staff, Just across the road... More
