I've often been past Becketts but it's always been packed so I was delighted to spot a table for our party of four, plus Presley our dog. The lady was super friendly, bringing water for Presley and some little doggy treats. I was impressed with the homely, comfortable atmosphere where nothing was too much trouble. We all picked from the range of amazing, home baked cakes which vary depending on the day. We had chocolate and butterscotch, white chocolate and raspberry and lemon drizzle, all served warm with ice cream or cream or cold depending on your preference. The slices of cake are enormous and the lady said they wrap up any you can't manage to take home for later, she was right, we were beaten!! The walls are like a giant library with some brilliant books that you can read there or buy (we bought two.)
We stayed in Whitby for a week and called in Becketts every time we saw an available table. I can see why it's so popular, the staff are genuinely lovely and the food is amazing.
