Restaurant description

On the picturesque St Helen’s Square, Bettys York is an elegant café serving lunch, dinner and afternoon teas. Inspired by the founder’s experience on the maiden voyage of the Queen Mary, the café is decked out in wood panelling, with large curved windows and ornate mirrors.

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.

Bettys York is a 9-minute walk from York Train Station.

    We had afternoon tea as a belated birthday treat and were not disappointed! The selection of sandwiches and cakes was delicious - all fillings to sandwiches were well filled not skimping at all! Smoked salmon & ham our favourite- cakes delicious not too rich balance just right between tangy lemon tart, nutty slice and choc cube Scone very light & plenty of cream & jam

    Belmont rooms lovely Art Deco, waitresses very chatty and welcoming. Not overfaced with afternoon tea was just enough to feel full but not sickly full. A little background music would have been nice.

    If using Belmont room and booking a high chair it would be good to warn people there is no lift and prams need to be carried up 3 flights of stairs
