Wanted to call as I was in the area. I've been to Bettys before but not this one. The service was good, but the waitress did forget my coffee and moved on to the next table. No harm done. The food was good but not outstanding. The price tag however was quite outstanding, considering what we had. I wanted to... More

We stopped here for a quick brew en route to the market town of Skipton. We had just had a pleasant visit to Booths but the waiting time for the free hot drink with the Booths card was 30mins plus as it was lunchtime. So we opted for Betty`s. Nice friendly and relaxed. Just what we needed after a very... More

I am new to Bettys but had heard about it and loved our afternoon tea there. Lovely staff and great service plus a timeless atmosphere...I almost expected Poirot or Miss Marple to walk in. The cakes and teas were lovely and the whole experience is one I really hope to repeat.

What a lovely experience. There's a smashing cake and sweet shop in front and then it's like stepping back in time! An old style traditional cafe with staff wearing long white aprons like days of yore. They were pleasant and attentive and my little grandson was catered for with colouring book material provided. Food was excellent. Must tell my butler... More

Last Friday afternoon (4th Sept) a lovely friend took me to Betty's in Ilkley for afternoon tea. I visit this Betty's regularly and it is always excellent - which oddly is perhaps why I hardly think to write a review. I have also taken afternoon tea at the Betty's in York but I really felt moved to comment so that... More

Lovely Spot! Very polite, well trained staff. Good location, about 3 minutes walking distance from train station. Amazing pastries and delicious tea. Must visit if you are in town, just make sure you have enough cash on you as it is quite pricey for West Yorkshire. Would definitely recommend to friends!

I have spent the last twenty-five years visiting here on a regular basis but have found my last two visits to be a little disappointing. The tea and coffee as always was top notch and thoroughly enjoyable. The cinnamon toast was piping hot and divine. Sadly the poached eggs were not. On my previous visit I had commented that my...

Had afternoon team with friends, the food was beautifully presented and very tasty. The atmosphere was relaxed and very pleasant. Even though it was busy, staff were attentive and in no rush for us to move from the table. Just a lovely way to spend an afternoon and truthfully not overpriced.
