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.

    Service was good. The afternoon tea food was lovely but just not enough for for £40 each. Overpriced for an afternoon tea.

    Fantastic surdondings, lovely staff and delicious food!

    A lovely treat (using vouchers given as a retirement present) of Afternoon tea with a set menu - all very pleasing, especially the ability to try as many different teas as we liked. Although it was a delightful experience, I would not pay this much myself for afternoon tea! However I might consider treating someone else for a special occasion.

    Fantastic food and of course -tea. We had the Christmas menu, and the bit-sized 'stollen' were an absolute favourite - however, the scones were also incredible... as was every single other item. Anything that you could want from afternoon tea.

    The food was lovely very good selection and the pork pie and roulade make it that bit more special. Was great that had different coffees too as 2 people were coffee drinkers

    Beautiful surroundings and lovely service with piano playing in background. Not the largest tea I’ve ever had for my money (and I do a lot of these) but very tasty and you can ask for refills.
    The ladies’ loos need more regular attention.
    Very enjoyable time though. Lovely shop downstairs too.

    Ambience was very 1930s with the art deco features and piano playing. The tea itself was excellent and the advice provided by the waitress helpful!

    Enjoyed a wonderful visit for my husband’s 40th birthday.
    The Belmont Room was an exquisite setting, the pianist was fabulous, the food was delicious and the service fantastic. It was a super experience. The staff were very helpful and attentive and we both had a splendid time!
    Thank you so much.
