We popped in here for a bite to eat yesterday, the staff were lovely and the food was good (a bit of onion in the coleslaw wouldn’t have gone a miss) The bread was to die for and the cakes were delicious. The carpet could’ve done with a hoover as it was covered in crumbs but other than that we would definitely go again.

My wife and i like to think we are pork pie aficionados- but the rare breed pie here is on another scale..perfect chunks of tender , and very tasty , pork set in a loose jelly and the crispiest pastry set this apart from all other pies....I know what i want for Christmas

A step upstairs but a step back in time to a slower age. Afternoon tea in the formal surroundings of yesteryear with an air of calmness and order. Polite service with fresh cake and piping hot tea. A really pleasant way to de-stress, will return.

Called in for a snack. Spoilt for choice. Staff very friendly. Prices competitive. Nice clean thought out store. Worth the longish up hill stroll from the harbour side.

We visited Bothams for Saturday afternoon tea. Whitby was exceptionally busy due to a tourism event, but Bothams was not busy at all. We used to be regular customers and this cafe was always very busy on summer Saturdays.

Since our previous visits several years ago, a large refrigerated display has been installed, splitting the counter area in two. Unfortunately, this hides the extensive cafe area, leaving only a couple of tables visible to anyone walking in off the street. No wonder the cafe isn't busy, even on a day when Whitby was absolutely crowded, if it is hidden from potential customers' view.

Sadly, Bothams' customer service is no longer what it was. It proved difficult to attract the attention of staff behind the counter as they were engaged in animated conversation with each other. After finally placing the order there was a further delay while the staff continued their conversation. During this time two other customers left because they were unable to place orders for food, such were the intensity of the conversation and the determination of the staff to devote all their attention to it.

When the food finally came we found the scones bland and the tea was not hot.

Bothams was formerly an excellent cafe that stood out because of the quality of the food offering and the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff. Alas no longer.
