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.

    Very nice and professional hospitality. It wasn’t our first time and wouldn’t be our last visit for sure. We had our Italian guest and she loved it. The only thing was time slot was tight and we felt uncomfortable at the end specially with a guest with us.

    Afternoon tea for two - excellent food. Accommodated my vegetarian diet very well. Choc cake supplied on request, thank you!
    Love having the piano played but, for my preference, it was a little too loud. I would rather have is as a background feature.

    We felt like royalty as soon as we arrived for our afternoon tea and the Belmont room. My friends and I had the best experience. I booked it for my friend's 21st birthday, and the staff were incredible from start to finish. They were always happy to refill our teas, bring new ones, and give us extra sandwiches and scones if we really enjoyed them. I will definitely be back, it was such a treat. They even gave my friend a birthday cake at the end! Thank you for such a memorable experience

    Had a wonderful relaxing afternoon tea. Relaxing music with wonderful staff who where able to give explanations about the each course.
    The sandwiches had great taste and the assortment of teas extensive. The staff had great knowledge of the teas and regional tastes. The cakes appeared and tasted great although it was difficult to choose from.
    Myself and my friends had an excellent time
