We called here for a coffee and cake, cakes absolutely beautiful and a decent size slice. My partner had lemon meringue cheesecake and I had lemon drizzle. Next time we visit Whitby we are going to try their ice creams.

Excellent little stop off for a tea or coffee. Owners are from my own neck of the woods, home from home. Service is great, place is very clean, and the ice cream - superior quality. Defo another visit next year!!

I just had a take away pot of the most delicious ice cream I've ever had. The apple and raspberry was scrumptious. I think they make them on the premises so perhaps because it was so fresh helped make it so stunning, unlike other places...More

Reviewing with a heavy heart as Teare Woods has always felt like a special place for my husband and I. We've been visiting, recommending and have even made the 4 hour pilgrimage to Whitby JUST for Teare Woods ice cream, since it first opened. Our...More

Hi. By far this is the most embarrassing and upsetting review that we have ever recieved. Why? Because NONE of the things that you experienced should ever have happened and for that we cannot apologise enough. This is not because success has changed us. It's...More

Tried here twice, the first time the lady was rude saying she couldn't seat us, the second time we went in and a lovely young man helped us move some tables together, plenty of room for other people to get by. The lady came to...More

Hi. I wasn't rude, we were full on your first attempt for which I apologised. If I was rude why would you come back? When you did return, even though I was allegedly rude first time, the lovely young man, who is fairly new, did...More

Called in for an ice cream which should surely be a simple and straightforward matter. Frankly the ice cream itself was mediocre but didn't bother me too much and I didn't complain about it. (or anything else for that matter) Far worse was the confrontational,...More

I'm sure these must be the best ice creams in Whitby! Plenty of flavours to choose from, generous scoop(s!). Eat in or take away. A few doors down from Mountain Warehouse...
