Afternoon tea and fine food at Filey's historic literary landmark
Charlottes of Filey in Filey, North Yorkshire, is a licensed tearoom and fine dining restaurant set in the former summer home of novelist, poet and English literary giant Charlotte Brontë.
Charlotte Brontë holidayed in Filey and stayed regularly in Cliff House. Inspired by the beautiful east coast, she wrote: "... the glories of the sea, the sound of its restless waves, formed a subject for much contemplation that never wearied either the eye, the ear or mind"
Today, Cliff House is home to Charlottes of Filey, where we serve afternoon tea and an ever-changing fine dining restaurant menu on weekend evenings.
