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.

    This was a remarkable experience for afternoon tea. With the times of Covid 19 . The staff had a good understanding of social distancing and this was adhered to down to the letter . On arrival we were created with a professional and warm manner . The use of a hand sanitizer station was clearly marked and clean . The decor was beautiful, giving the room a beautiful ambience. The service was impeccable and no requests was to small, staff were attentive, very professional and had a good communication with guests . Food was a delicious and a delight to eat . There range of sandwiches l, scone and clotted cream and preserve and the light light the beautiful selection of cakes. This was a delight to enjoy. The staff know how to make a delightful experience memorable.

    Afternoon tea was very tasty and well presented, but not much of it for two people. Very over priced for what I had. Staff were very polite and helpful.

    Over priced for afternoon tea. Paid for the name, Betty’s. Of 3 mini cakes the only one that was tasty was the chocolate mouse. I have had better afternoon tea for a lesser price. Service was good, staff very nice and helpful, room very nice but wouldn’t say great ambience.

    Lovely afternoon tea for me and my partner while visiting Betty's. He has never done an afternoon tea so this was a first and he really enjoyed it. Very accommodating with Gluten free bread.

    This was my first time visiting Kerry's and I wasn't disappointed, the waiter was set I aged to making our first visit special. He ensured that we knew how to order extra delights from the shop and service was swift tonthe table Sadly we couldn't take home any further scones as the shop had all sold out. However we did return the next day to purchase some from the shop.
