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.

    Wonderful day, High tea. This was a treat for my partner on his 50th and really enjoyed it. We were welcomed by the maitre d who took us to the table and asked us if we were celebrating any thing and appointed our waitress for the service. Laura was very attentive and friendly and explained the process well. we were then brought a birthday cake whilst the pianist played happy birthday. The food and drinks were lovely, I had a vegetarian alternative which was just as well prepared and flavoured and top ups and extra sandwiches were offered. The environment was relaxing and friendly and we had an enjoyable time and did not feel rushed in any way.

    This was a delightful experience for my husband and me. The building is beautifully maintained. The tea we were served was upstairs with easy access. The servers were incredibly polite and always there to refill sandwiches as needed. The pastries were delicious and freshly baked. And were beautiful to look at. There was a pianist playing the entire time we were there. This was the excellent experience I had dreamed of.
