I have had a cup of tea(or coffee) in many tea rooms and cafes over the years, but it is a very long time since I was served by a waitress in black, with a little white cap and a frilly apron. Very old fashioned, but very welcome, the service was not the quickest, but attentive. After a short wait... More

I discovered this when visiting Pickering station for the trains (its right opposite) so now I don't bother going anywhere else on a shopping visit to the town. Mid range coffee and snack prices with good quality and adequate service. Especially friendly service. Try the baked-bean, cheese and onion toastie - never seen that anywhere else. On-street parking across the... More

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
