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.

    Hi The Dining experience was very good the afternoon tea and the waitress service was excellent. Only issue I had was that I was over charged by £22 for the wrong Birthday Cake. I resolved this the next day and the shop team apologised for the mix up and refunded me the difference. I do feel that there could of been an incentive for my inconvenience however overall if I visit York again I will book in again.

    Fabulous afternoon tea in the Belmont room. Staff were lovely and looked after us. The gluten free menu was great. May be a couple more sandwiches for the price.

    I booked Afternoon tea fur my wife as a birthday surprise. Everything was really nice , she enjoyed it. Made us feel very welcome when we arrived, service throughout was fantastic. Covid restrictions were in place and we were impressed by them. Staff wearing visors, gel available , everything very clean. The tea was a good quality as was the food, sandwiches, scones, mini cakes. The option to buy cakes from the shop was available. Did not feel rushed and enjoyed every minute of it. A little surprise, as we paid the bill, staff brought a little cake for my wife in a little box with happy birthday written on it. A very nice touch.
