A real treat to step back in time and be served in such elegant surroundings.

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.

It was delightful, what a treat!
We loved the min pork and apple pie, the tarragon chicken and the scones. The sleigh cake was also lovely, along with the assam, the lemon and ginger tea and the English breakfast.

Amazing setting with a fantastic selection of afternoon tea staples both sweet and savoury. Excellent service and attention to detail by all staff members, an added bonus was the pianist. Booking was seamless and we received a very warm and courteous welcome, I really cannot fault the whole experience.

Lovely afternoon tea. The whole experience was great in a beautiful room. Takes you back to a more genteel time. Staff were beautifully presented and very attentive without being too pushy. A nice way to spend an afternoon.

Gorgeous atmosphere. Friendly helpful staff. Delicious food!
It was a 30th birthday present for myself. The staff knew of this. Several other tables were presented with a birthday fondant cake with a candle and birthday music. I did not receive this and was pretty disappointed. I know it’s not an expectation however to be the only one not receiving it when many others around us did, was unfair and disappointing.

The whole experience was wonderful. From the minute we heard the pianist & saw the tables laid with beautiful china & elegant champagne flutes, we knew it was going to be special. The staff were extremely professional, friendly & knowledgeable. The food was as expected, delicious, freshly baked scones, tasty artisan bread for the sandwiches, the most delicious battenburg, everything was top class. Definitely recommend this as a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
