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.

    Every experience we have had at Bettys has been outstanding. The service, the food, the decor, everything. We had the Centenary Afternoon Tea as a celebration for my Mom and Godmothers 65th birthday. They were so chuffed when they received a beautifully wrapped surprise before we left. Our server was Catherine and she couldn’t do enough for us. She even remembered me from our Wedding Reception in the Belmont Suite from nearly 5 years ago.

    My friend and I enjoyed our afternoon tea. The atmosphere was lovely, staff very polite and welcoming. However I did intend to email you as our booking experience was misleading.

    The food and service (Charlie) were excellent and they even managed to cope with our requirements for diary free without any drop in standard of presentation or taste!

    Excellent experience. The staff were friendly professional polite and attentive. The afternoon tea was outstanding in both taste and presentation. The champagne was light and perfectly chilled. The tea was delicious and even better when served in silver teapots with China cups. Our time there was completed by the pianist playing Phantom of the Opera so beautifully.

    The Belmont Room is an excellent venue for afternoon tea, the Art Deco surroundings are exquisite, the attention to detail impeccable, to have your personal waiter/waitress was a lovely touch. What can I say about the food - as usual of exceptional standard.

    We saw Bettys on the tv and knew when we were in the area we had to visit. We were not disappointed. The art deco room made us think of all the people over the last 100 years we had sat in our seats thorough wars and happy times.
    From the arrival until we left the staff were friendly, professional and happy to make our visit special.
    The food was delightful and we sat near the piano which created a great atmosphere. We took some of our little patisseries home in a little box as we’d eaten previously. We couldn’t leave them. They were too delicious little mouthfuls.
    We will go back if in the area or nip over to Harrogate to try there.

    Absolutely love Bettys in York. The staff were so helpful as I had informed them we would have a pram with my 12 week old grandson, so they helped with the pram, put in a nice seating area so the pram wasn’t in the way. The pianist was very talented and my grandson loved the upbeat music. The waiter was courteous and polite, checking that we were okay for more sandwiches, milk and tea. My daughter was delighted with the birthday box which was given to her. We were also not rushed in any way and will certainly be back.
