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.

    Great friendly helpful service, Holly was very smiley at all times, knew everything about the food and teas, offered champagne on arrival which was a lovely touch. Gave us all options on the first two courses and sandwich fillings too. We really enjoyed our 3rd experience at Bettys, the pianist was outstanding too! 10 out of 10 for him

    Over all we really enjoyed the experience. A little wobble at the start as where we were seated was a busy access route to the toilets. after our bags being knocked of the back of the chair to the floor by another customer, we requested a move to another table. Our request was promptly accommodated.

    After queuing on the stairs (not expected or desirable) we were shown to a table in the elegant Imperial room. The room was decorated for Christmas and had a very relaxed atmosphere with a pianist playing. The afternoon tea was delicious with tasty savories and delightful cakes. The champagne, served shortly after we were seated, was very welcome after our long journey and visit to the Christmas market. Tea was plentiful and additional sandwiches were offered, but not required. A lovely treat.

    Lovely place and easy to find. Fantastic well trained and elegant staff. They know their menu and give quality information about the food and drinks. The setting was perfect for my birthday celebration with my family. The tables are well spaced and there is live music by a talented pianist. The food is freshly prepared for each table so there is a short wait. The starter is light fresh and delicious. Just right. The sandwiches are really wonderful in every way. Great breads and fresh quality fillings with just the right amount of salad and condiment. Customers are asked if there are things they want adding or taken away from the filling, so everyone gets the sandwich which suits them. The scones were light and delicious too, very good jam and cream. The fancy cakes, for our family, were to sweet and too over thought. They were tasty but too rich. We felt that a few plainer but well
    made basic made cakes would have been better. Maybe lemon drizzle and a carrot cake. The cake course is the reason for only 4 stars.
