W Hamond Tea Rooms

W Hamond Award-Winning Tea Rooms

Welcome to W Hamond Tea Rooms, Whitby
Open Monday to Sunday 9:30am - 5pm

Whitby is famous for many things, from its Blue Flag beaches, mouth-watering fish and chips, celebrated literary connections and iconic Goth weekend. But one of Whitby’s greatest treasures is a hidden gem on the first floor of the famous W Hamond Whitby jewellery boutique. Step into our historic store, discover our stunning collections of Whitby Jet jewellery and follow the scent of home baking into our charming W Hamond Tea Rooms.

Since opening in 2010, W Hamond Tea Rooms have been welcoming visitors from all across the world with a tempting array of delicious meals and traditional home baking. Our elegant first-floor café has even caught the eye of several Hollywood superstars who have had the chance to try our tasty selections of cakes, sandwiches and lunches.

Come & Enjoy Afternoon Tea
at the foot of the 199 Steps

For many who visit the town, W Hamond is often referred to as ‘that jet shop at the foot of the 199 steps’, so what better way to take advantage of such a wonderful location than to elevate yourself above the crowds and look down on the busy Church Street and around the corner at the start of the Steps in our first-floor Tea Rooms.

We have some fabulous seating next to our first-floor windows which we would be happy to pre-book and reserve for you to enjoy one of our highly recommended afternoon teas or just relax with a drink. Whether that is hot, cold, or something a little stronger, you may also wish to accompany it with a generous slice of homemade cake.

Our Tea Rooms are also available for private hire, making the perfect venue for hosting a special event or meeting. Please contact us if you wish to discuss any ideas, find out more information or to make any general reservations.

Whitby Award-Winning Tea Rooms


“Whitby was bustling and we were looking for lunch. Most cafes etc looked very busy and noisy and I didn't want the hassle.

We knew about the tea rooms as we have purchased jewellery from the shop before. The tea room is through the jewellers and up the stairs to the first floor. We sat by a window and looked down on the passing pedestrians to pass the time.

Things were very quiet at the start and then it got busy but the atmosphere was relaxed. Service was quick and efficient, food was good and price was reasonable.”

Although we think we have the best Tea Rooms in Whitby, we would never just ask you to take our word for it! In addition to some great reviews left by our customers – like the one above from a seasoned traveller – we were thrilled to be named the ‘UK's Best Tea Room for Afternoon Tea' from a 2021 nationwide study that was based on TripAdvisor data. Read the full story here.

We hope to see you soon to try our award-winning afternoon tea.
