On a visit to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway found this little gem right across the road. My family and I, including our grand-daughter enjoyed tea and scones with strawberry jam. The picture describes the scones better than I can! This is a proper, exquisite tea room with wonderful staff and service. It offers a great variety of home made/baked... More

My wife and I visited for a snack and ordered toasted Apricot Tea Bread which was delicious. My wife had green tea, and I had decaf. Cappuccino. The coffee was in a very large cup, and was piping hot.

We live locally and are in the process of trying places out. This is a proper tea room - great cakes and very good tea. I recommend it and it is very handy for the railway too.

Recommended to me by locals. Pleasant enough but the service was slow (on an out-of-season midweek afternoon) and one of our two 'hot' drinks merely lukewarm. It's not cheap, either. That said, regular frequenters of tea rooms (I'm not one, I must admit) will doubtless find Botham's appealing.

Had a lovely lunch here. Came for afternoon tea (at about 2pm!) but there were no scones at all which was disappointing for a tea room, especially on a Monday, but these things happen. I had an egg and cress sandwich and the bread was so lovely we bought a loaf to take home. If we weren't visitors we'd go... More

You can't go to Yorkshire without visiting Bothams, either Pickering or Whitby. Savoury afternoon tea is a must. Like stepping back in time being "spoilt". Another must is savouring Yorkshire Brack and the biscuits are heaven. That good I've just bought 8 packets to take home. Very reasonable pricing.

We found this tea room tucked around the corner from the market place near the station. It has a good selection of teas cakes sandwiches etc. We enjoyed a very nice Whitby Crab sandwich served with a side salad. Assam tea very good. just what we needed.

A lovely little cafe hidden opposite the Railway Station. We were well looked after and the sarnies and cakes fresh and delicious. We were given fresh pot of tea after a while and the young waitresses are very attentive. Lovely atmosphere. Our party ranged from 70 to 8 months.

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
