Afternoon tea at Bettys York involves a vast selection of teas, served with sweet and savoury delights. Classic blends join exotic black, green and white teas, as well as herbal blends on the lengthy tea menu. Traditional fresh sandwiches are followed by freshly baked sultana scones with strawberry preserve and Yorkshire clotted cream, as well as a selection of handmade cakes.

Add a touch of indulgence to afternoon tea with a glass of champagne, or sample the wide choice of specialty coffees, world wines, and local ales. Bettys also hosts regular events and live music, making it a lively venue day and night.

    Lovely experience, wonderful atmosphere, felt very welcomed, food was superb. Two of our party had the Gluten free option. It was almost exactly the same, so they didn’t feel left out at all. Strongly recommend.

    My wife and I visited Betty's during a recent trip to York to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The staff were very welcoming, helpful and friendly from the moment we arrived. The waitresses were very attentive without being overbearing and the speed of service was just right. We hoped for an indulgent, luxurious experience and our expectations were surpassed. The decor, friendly staff and attendant pianist all made for a wonderful ambiance. It was a unique experience and one we'd highly recommend to friends and family.

    We went to Bettys for afternoon tea, it was the Xmas menus and it was absolutely lovely! I am currently 36 weeks pregnant and currently on crutches and the staff was so nice helping me and catering to my needs. The sandwiches were absolutely perfect I can’t eat salmon and they catered for me and the two little starters were beautiful. The cakes and scones were make to perfection also. The teas was lovely! The atmosphere in the Belmont room was perfect the piano player was fabulous and it was all very relaxed. The only thing I was little put out by was they asked if we was there for a special occasion and we explained it was our 5 year anniversary and we was having one last weekend away before the new arrival came they offered us a glass of champagne which we assumed was complimentary after the conversation we had with the waitress, bit we then got put down for the champagne afternoon tea which was an extra £10 each

    It was wonderful from start to finish. Our server Anne was so lovely. The food was delicious. It was very festive with all the Christmas decorations. It was well worth the money. Will be recommending it to anyone looking for afternoon tea.
