Restaurant description

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.

    Limited to 90 minutes was rushed. Thats the bad point. Cant chill and enjoy slowly. So couldnt get the chance to have a coffee at the end as the waiter suggested to box up and pay. So pretty much had to eat faster and go. What a shame really. So it ok overall. I also pre booked too and paid for the higher price afternoon tea. The strict 90 minute slot just ruined it really.

    Had a wonderful time eating at the Belmont rooms. Very friendly staff able to answers our numerous questions. The piano player was wonderful, and the music didn’t interfere with our conversations. The teas and all the food was just superb. Requested more sandwiches as not quite enough for my husband. Overall I would recommend Bettys.

    We booked it so we ended up in a separate room upstairs, it was lovely and there was even a pianist playing live music! Staff were polite and knew what they were talking about, would recommend for a special occasion

    We were shown to our table and the experience explained to us. We decided on our tea there was a selection of 19. We had 5 courses each one was delicious. The staff were friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was relaxed and we had a woman playing a piano beautifully throughout which was very soothing without being intrusive.
