Such a treat to come here! Will be back with my mum next time! Loved all of the food- apart from the rose scones but that's just personal preference!

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 overall experience was a disappointment. The staff were friendly but stretched thin, leaving us waiting for tea, food, and the bill for long periods of time. The selection of tea was fine unless you have your heart set on fruit-infused teas as there were none on offer. The food was good, but the scones are very small and were not replenished despite the tea advertising unlimited food. Even had we wanted other food replenished, the wait staff wasn't available to ask.

    This was a real treat - classic luxury afternoon tea. Both the tea (the drink) and all the delicious accompaniments were fabulous and the presentation and service were first class. Top tip: if having the champagne I really recommend Betty's delicious rhubarb champagne cocktail. It's gorgeous.

    The experience couldn't have been any better! We went there on Saturday for my mothers birthday and we had a fantastic time. The waitresses couldn't have done more, we will definitely be back!! Thank you!

    The whole experience sends you back to the age of personal table service, elegant, unhurried and polite, a breath of fresh air

    An amazing treat. Afternoon tea was delicious with a varied menu. Staff were very attentive and displayed a good knowledge of the menu and options on drinks to suit our specific needs. Piano music in background was perfect finishing touch.

    Lemon scones were delightful.

    We loved everything about our visit. The atmosphere, the food, the lovely staff....

    Betty's is without a doubt the finest dining establishment for a traditional afternoon tea. I treated my family to celebrate great achievements that we all have accomplished recently and it was just ideal for a celebratory occasion. Being in the heart of the city centre, it is an ideal location to come straight from the train station (which we did) and definitely to do a spot of shopping whilst you're there!! Betty's is five stars all round. Thank you for our experience.
