Absolutely fabulous experience! I loved the amazing gentleman playing the piano. The food was divine. Very well catered for with a friendly, efficient service. I would highly recommend and will visit again!

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'd not been to Bettys before but had quite high expectations and they were certainly met. From having linen tablecloths, excellent attentive service to a wonderful pianist.

The champagne afternoon tea service was amazing. Lovely food and beautiful room and service by all the staff upstairs. We will definitely come again. The only thing was the cut off time at the end, we were a table of five with my elderly grandmother and it felt a little rushed to have to leave the table for the next booking considering the size of the place. We understand others are waiting but perhaps leave more time for larger group reservations? Other than this suggestion though, everything was fantastic!

We loved the Betty's afternoon tea experience. The food was beautifully presented and served. The Premier cru champagne was very good. The service was excellent and charming, they couldn't have been more helpful.The quality of the food was of Betty's high standard I, as a retired master baker, have come to expect as Yorkshire's premier bakers.
Congratulations on maintaining your high standard and deserved reputation.
Thank you for a wonderful afternoon.

Lovely surroundings. Well laid out room. Pleasant staff who went out of their way to make the experience enjoyable and explain the menu. Loved the savoury touches. Nice to have sandwiches and tea replenished. Good choice of cakes. The glass of champagne was the icing on the cake! Would love to come back next year to celebrate your 100th birthday.

The Imperial Room was full and our booked time slot was the last of the session so we were therefore the last to finish in an empty room which left us feeling we needed to leave. Service very good from a young lad on a Gap year saving up for University. Afternoon tea fare (one standard, one veggie) was excellent if overpriced. The shop downstairs is not as interesting as it used to be.
