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 were looked after extremely well and the food was all we had hoped

    The setting, place and staff were excellent. We was served by a member of staff that was on training (Elliot) he was fab, he served us with great ease and knowledge of what he was serving.
    thought it was strange that you didn't get one of everything for each person, everyone should have the same unless stated. Other than that I would have scored 5/5

    Loved the whole experience. Had the afternoon tea and it was beautiful. All the sandwiches and cakes were so tasty. The staff looked after us so well, polite and helpful, really friendly. It was my partners birthday and they even brought him a little cake with candle out at the end. Lovely touch!

    The afternoon tea dining was a lovely and relaxing atmosphere. The piano music made the perfect background to a lovely interior. The staff are very knowledgeable and attentive. All of the food was sumptuous. A lovely experience all round and would definitely come again.

    Fantastic champagne afternoon tea, excellent service and loved the music played by the pianist. I brought a friend along who is over from Australia, we both really enjoyed the experience.

    Our visit to Betty's York was brilliant! Our waiter Harry was lovely and talked us through the menu and tea selection before we made our choice. He then talked us through all the food on our stands so we knew exactly what we were eating. We were even offered extra sandwiches at no additional cost. The scones are a favourite but it was all delicious. The atmosphere was great and the food was amazing! We all thoroughly enjoyed it!
