I have been visiting Bettys since the 1980's when I was at college in Ilkley. Apart from the prices and perhaps the portion sizes nothing has changed. We only had a lunch time sandwich but still good. Bought loads of biscuits and bread to bring home. Not cheap but reminds me of time gone by. Will always be a favourite... More

Had a toasted cheese sandwich couldn't eat the crust as they were so crisp I was in danger of breaking my teeth. Also the Yorkshire strong tea was really weak even after leaving it for a good while. I would go again but would make better choices.

Went here specifically to have afternoon tea, after reading mixed reviews. As soon as you walk in the old world charm hits you. We were greeted by a very charming maitre d' who seated us and once we had perused the menu returned to take our order. Our waitress, along with all the other staff we spoke to, was very... More

Visited Betty's recently. Have been in the past but not for a while. It is an experience not to be missed. Feels like something out of a bygone age but with very modern prices! The food was good and service excellent. The staff were very attentive. However there are places locally which are more reasonably priced for food which is... More

Wonderful old charm this place has. Starting off our Dales way adventure in style with breakfast here. The eggs Benidict were fantastic as was our Bucks fizz when they had worked out they could charge us for one orange juice and one champagne then mix them together as we very nearly didn't get it because it was not priced on...

...for a wait there shall be! Always a long queue because people know it's worth it. The food and the ambiance equally renowned.

Visited here with my parents who traveled from Sussex to see me. Bettys has a great reputation but after my visit I felt very disappointed. I had a cappuccino and cake. The coffee beans were very good, but it was not prepared to the standard I would have expected when paying so much. The bubbles of the milk on my... More
