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.

Betty's at Harrogate was a fantastic experience that I can highly recommend to any visitor. Class and style come together with tradition and perfect service. We had champagne afternoon tea, and we really enjoyed it.

I was thrilled that they took the time to work with me because I have a fruit allergy. The food was lovely, especially the cheese scone

We had a wonderful tea at the Betty’s in York - not Harrogate ?? I messed up the location for the reservation, but the staff couldn’t have been more accommodating - and contacted Harrogate so they didn’t hold the table.
The food was lovely, and the tea very refreshing. It was nice to be out of the crowds where we could chat and lazily enjoy our time together.

Our first time at your establishment for a birthday treat for my wife. She thoroughly enjoyed the surprise afternoon tea whilst we were visiting Harrogate for a long weekend stay.
All of the sandwiches and cakes were excellent. I personally enjoyed the savouries with being a pork pie fan. From nothing more than answering a question as to whether it was a special occasion for us, I was extremely happy when my wife receive a birthday cake accompanied by a tune from the piano, a very nice touch indeed - thank you.
Although it was a busy period, the personal service which we receive from our waitress Alicia made the experience all that more special.
We enjoyed the live piano playing and the choice of music which included tunes from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
Overall a lovely visit.

The room was outstanding. We liked the piano music wnich gave a nice ambience to relax and enjoy our delicious afternoon tea. The waitress was very attentive, offering additional sandwiches and tea. We find it very difficult to say which dish was our favourite as everything was delicious and beautifully presented. We look forward to making another booking to celebrate another occasion.

Treated my best friends to an intimate Lady Bettys afternoon tea in the Imprerial Rooms in harrogate. Delightful setting, with pianist playing and a superb atmosphere; the staff couldn’t have been more attentive, without being obstructive. A real old fashioned treat!
