On the picturesque St Helen’s Square, Bettys York is an elegant café serving lunch, dinner and afternoon teas. Inspired by the founder’s experience on the maiden voyage of the Queen Mary, the café is decked out in wood panelling, with large curved windows and ornate mirrors.

Afternoon tea at Bettys York involves a vast selection of teas, served with sweet and savoury delights. Classic blends join exotic black, green and white teas, as well as herbal blends on the lengthy tea menu. Traditional fresh sandwiches are followed by freshly baked sultana scones with strawberry preserve and Yorkshire clotted cream, as well as a selection of handmade cakes.

Add a touch of indulgence to afternoon tea with a glass of champagne, or sample the wide choice of specialty coffees, world wines, and local ales. Bettys also hosts regular events and live music, making it a lively venue day and night.

Bettys York is a 9-minute walk from York Train Station.

    Very £32.95 we were definetly expecting more! We had Lady Bettys Afternoon Tea in The Belmont Room. The sandwiches and cakes were very bland, was expecting them to be super tasty, but we were very dissatisfied! The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. The tea was amazing. We had afternoon tea at Harrods, 2 people for £30 and it was far superior. We have all wanted to go to Betty's for so long......definetly not all its cracked up to be!

    My friend and I had a wonderful time and the food was delicious. However, I rang the restaurant the day before we were due to let them know that I was pregnant so could not eat the smoked salmon. I also reminded our waitress of this when she took our order. When the food arrived I was given the smoked salmon. As it was only a small serving I didn't mention it again and my friend ate it but I was slightly disappointed that I had told the staff twice.
