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.

    I went to university in York so I knew I wanted to book afternoon tea as part of a hen do I was organising. I cannot fault the service or food. We had Sophia who was very attentive and kind. I managed to lose my phone and the staff helped me find it. The food was excellent (as ever!) We had a few bags and the staff kindly stored them in a lockable room for an hour before our reservation which was really above and beyond.

    We were expecting the little sandwiches, scones and cakes and tea, the extra dishes brought out first were a delicious surprise. There was a range of teas to choose from too, our waitress was happy to recommend her favourites which we enjoyed. We had extra sandwiches brought out to us and more tea. Everything was delicious, beautiful presented and the pianist added to the experience. My husband was even presented with a box containing a cake as we’d gone there for his birthday. Would highly recommend the afternoon tea.
