Whitby cafe drops name Fat Rascal after Bettys threatened legal action
Bettys, a famous UK tea room, has taken on a small café over the sale of a fruit scone called ‘Fat Rascals’.
Sandgate Coffee and Delights, a café based in Whitby, North Yorkshire, was asked by the tea room to change the name of its scone as it was infringing Bettys’ trademark for ‘Fat Rascal’, according to reports.
A spokesperson for Bettys said: “While the name Fat Rascal has some references in old literature, the idea of a plump fruity scone, topped with natural cherry eyes and split almond mouth was created by Bettys over 30 years ago.”
