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.

    The food and service was absolutely excellent, my only complaint was the price, very small portions of both savoury and sweet so that was a big disappointment compared to other places I have been.

    Lovely Service in with everything at its finest. Loved the whole experience and would certainly recommend.
    The pianist was a lovely touch with the staff attentive to every detail.

    We came to York to celebrate our 50th year in the Belmont Room upstairs for a Chanpagne Afternoon Tea. It was lovely to have the space to feel that we weren’t rushed or cramped, had plenty of time, and the service was impeccable. We had a couple of dietary requirements which were specified before hand, and we changed our Party number last minute which was all accommodated without fuss. We were all given a birthday cake to take away. I cannot fault the food or the service. Particularly liked the tarragon chicken sandwich, which was light and flavoursome. The Rose scone could have had more rose for me, but it was delicately flavoured, and the cream and jam set it off to perfection. Loved the macaroon - so light, just melted in the mouth. All in all, we had a wonderful leisurely time celebrating together. Staff were helpful but not intrusive, and I’d definitely wholeheartedly recommend. Thank you

    We celebrated my husband's new job with afternoon tea in the Beaumont Room at Betty's in York. The service was amazing, our waitress Eloise was very helpful and the afternoon tea was beautiful. A wonderful variety of tastes and textures, beautifully presented and each item described by our waitress as was the great range of teas we had to choose from. The live piano music added to the beautiful surroundings to make a truly unforgettable experience.

    Very enjoyable with excellent professional service. Loved the pianist it reminded me of been on our cruises.

    We have visited Betty's many times for afternoon tea, this time we went with our Australian visitors, the environment is 'classy' and a wonderful place to take visitors, the sandwiches and cakes are delightful and both sandwiches and tea is replenished if requied and the live piano player adds to the experience.
