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.

I was bought some vouchers (what a lovely idea for a gift!) and chose to take 2 girlfriends with me for the champagne afternoon tea. One of my friends does not eat meat - this was no problem at all - they were very accommodating. We had booked and were served upstairs - a beautiful room with 2 superb pianists who really set the mood for the whole experience. The service was impeccable from the outset; champagne was served followed by an appetiser and the stand of cakes and sandwiches. The food was wonderful and although there was plenty, we were offered more sandwiches. We had 2 different teas each and were not at all rushed. What a wonderful experience which we would recommend without hesitation.

Afternoon tea was £32.95 each, for what you actually had was a little pricey but the location/traditional theme made it worthwhile for a special treat.

A really lovely afternoon tea to celebrate my mum’s 70th birthday. The staff were really attentive and couldn’t do enough to make the experience special. We sat in the Imperial Suite at a table next to the pianist who was a joy to listen to throughout our tea. The staff brought mum out a Betty’s fondant fancy with a candle in it to the tune of ‘happy birthday’ which was a lovely end to our visit.
