We visit here every time go to Whitby. First class Olde English Tea Shoppe with excellent service and a fabulous selection of goodies. A 'sandwich' comes with green salad, potato salad and coleslaw and is a meal in itself.

Having arrived at Whitby we had a hike up to the abbey and around the bay and were on the hunt for somewhere for a spot if lunch. We wanted to avoid the busy area around the bay and discovered this excellent tea rooms. The entrance is up a flight of steps but you are greeted at the entrance by a stairlift so suitable for the older generation. The menu on offer was excellent as well as a great range of teas and coffees. The four of us had an enjoyable meal in a relaxed and friendly environment. The staff were very pleasant and cooperative. A real gem of a find. I would define use it again.

We decided to try this delightful cafe after drooling over the wonderful variety of cakes in the shop window and we were not disappointed. The dining room is upstairs above the shop but has a stair lift for anyone with difficulties. The decor was wonderfully old fashioned and stylish and a very pleasant waitress dressed in a black and white uniform showed us to our table.The menu was extensive with a daily special meal deal at very reasonable prices I chose the home made Quiche , which came with salad and home made chips, my husband had the braised steak ,veg and new potatoes. Both dishes were delicious and the portions were a good size. Unfortunately we were both to full to enjoy one of the cakes in the display case so we bought a selection from the shop downstairs to enjoy at home. We can't wait for our next visit to Whitby and this wonderful cafe again.

Such a lovely afternoon tea, in the style of grand tea houses, efficient staff, reminded me a little of Betty's in Harrogate.
Wonderful selection of Teas and Coffees!
