What our couples and their guests say
Absolutely fantastic, we had our wedding reception here in the ballroom, Lois, Sarah, Dave and the team worked absolute miracles to make our day so special, the food was outstanding with our afternoon teas and cakes, the evening buffet was amazing, they all worked ever so hard and made ourselves and guests feel really special, couldn’t thank them enough and helped towards creating very special memories for us to cherish, would definitely recommend Hetty and Betty for any special occasion.
After getting married at Whitby registry office we celebrated at Hetty & Betty with fish and chip afternoon teas. Although we were only a small group Lois and the team made it super special and I can’t thank them enough! The food was delicious and we’ll definitely be back for another fish and chip afternoon tea.
Here for wedding of Lisa and Martin what a fantastic time we had. Lovely venue, first class service and atmosphere. Owners and staff went above and beyond to make the day special. A unique location with excellent food and drink choices 👌😁👏
Amazing place full of history, the food in my eyes was 10/10 the drinks was priced reasonable for a wedding and the service was exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble. Next time I’m in Whitby I’ll be visiting the cafe which is down stairs as the food was that good. Lovely place lovely staff 🙂 highly recommended
