High tea in their Imperial room felt like we had walked into a film set with the piano playing and happy groups of people enjoying a well deserved Betty’s tea. We loved everything including our lovely waiter!

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.

Everything from start to finish was excellent staff were very knowledgeable about the different teas and recommended ones I might like which were spot on you could try as a many as you liked. The menu was set but they also took your preferences into account and there were always alternatives on offer if there was something you did not like.

My friend and I enjoyed the most lovely afternoon tea at your Bettys in Harrogate recently.The experience couldn’t be faulted,a lovely selection of sandwiches,scones and delicate little cakes were provided.Unlike other afternoon teas we have experienced we were offered extra sandwiches and as many different teas as we could drink.It was a very special afternoon,in fact we went back the next day to purchase some of the teas and biscuits.I can particularly recommend the Blue Ceylon tea.

We had a Wonderful experience of afternoon tea in Bettys on Sunday afternoon. The Afternoon Tea itself was delightful -beautifully presented ,served by Waiters and waitresses who knew what they were talking about and could advise on choice of tea etc.The ambience in the Imperial tearooms was perfect with an excellent pianist who played and good repertoire and so atmosphere quality food serving staff were all spot-on and contributed to make this experience perfect.
