Welcome to Hetty and Betty
In a Grade II listed building set in the heart of Whitby town centre, you will find our hidden gem, Hetty and Betty. A cafe, and venue spread over two floors, with two distinctive styles. We’re perfectly situated with an entrance on both the harbour side, and on Baxtergate, just yards from the famous Whitby swing bridge and harbour.
The Ballroom at Hetty and Betty
Our first floor venue, “The Ballroom” is the perfect wedding venue, and has been hosting weddings and functions since 1928. A large beautiful period room, it plays host to memories and events throughout the year. We deliver fabulous – tailored – occasions, from our own calendar of events to bespoke celebrations and corporate events. The perfect place to hold your celebration or event. We offer bespoke packages for wedding receptions and other occasions, to help you make your day as unique as you are.
Hetty and Betty Cafe
Our ground floor cafe serves delicious meals, light bites, cakes, homemade scones, and cakes, and of course traditional fish and chips, all prepared by our highly trained Chefs. We’re proud to continue over 90 years of tradition, as fish and chips have been served from this site since 1928!
Using the entrance on Baxtergate, the cafe has easy access for wheelchairs and pushchairs, and is a flexible space to accommodate different needs. We’re dog friendly too!
If you’re a large party, don’t worry, we can cater for larger parties in our upstairs dining room, but we ask that you please book in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org to avoid disappointment.
The cafe offers table service too, so you’re always welcomed with a friendly “hello”!
