Exactly what you would expect from Afternoon Tea at Betty's. Great service, lovely table setting, good fresh food, good selection of cakes.

Bettys Harrogate has been offering afternoon teas, and a blend of British and Swiss cuisine since 1919. The original Bettys Café, the restaurant overlooks the floral landscapes of The Stray outside.

Afternoon teas at Betty Harrogate include a luxurious selection of sandwiches, cakes, patisseries and teas. Indulge in a traditional cream tea with scones and Yorkshire clotted cream, treat yourself to a champagne afternoon tea, or choose from the lavish cake trolley.

Combining the hearty influences of Swiss and Yorkshire cuisines, the Bettys menu places bacon and raclette rosti and swiss alpine macaroni alongside classics like fish and chips and slow-cooked steak pie. More Mediterranean influences also feature, including butternut squash tortelloni in sage butter with chestnut mushrooms, fresh spinach and toasted hazelnuts. For a lighter dish, try one of the speciality sandwiches, salads and omelettes.

In the centre of the picturesque North Yorkshire spa town, Bettys Harrogate is a 10-minute walk from Harrogate Train Station.

    We go to Betty's any time we are over in the North for the last 40 years and this time we had the lady betty afternoon tea it was excellent. We recommend Betty's to everyone. A lovely experience, good food, ambiance and every member of staff was friendly and helpful.

    My better half and I had Lady Betty Afternoon Tea courtesy of a gift. We couldn't fault it. We hadn't anticipated a pianist being there so that was a bonus. Just as we had finished all the savouries, the waitress brought us two fresh plates before we started on the scones and mini-cakes. You don't often get attention to detail like that. She did actually ask if we would like more sandwiches, a very tempting offer which we declined, thinking of our waistlines (or what's left of them!). It really was service with a smile from all the staff. Think it was probably the best afternoon tea we've had. Well done, Bettys!

    We booked a special fternoon Tea that included champagne and it was wonderful! Every bit of it was outstanding; the staff were highly professional and the service they provided was nothing short of excellent. If you haven't gone to Betty's before, then I recommend you try it.

    This was the first time I had been to Betty's. My husband and I were given Lady Betty gift vouchers and we wanted to visit Harrogate for his birthday, so used them at the same time.
    The whole experience was gorgeous, from beginning to end. The staff were lovely, attentive, and nothing was too much trouble.
    The food was exquisite.
    We shall certainly be doing this again!
    Thank you! A wonderful afternoon.

    A lovely afternoon in a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. The food was exquisite and the combinations of flavours delightful. The service was a bit slow on occasion but otherwise it was a perfect afternoon.

    Wonderful atmosphere, very clean and welcoming.

    Took two Spanish guests for Lady Betty tea. It was, as usual, superb. Our guests were bowled over by the experience.
    Please buy your splendid pianist a grand piano, or at least a baby grand. Her musicianship and the setting justifies it.
