I am a big Betty's fan and always go with high expectations and this time it did not fail to deliver. I had a yummy Yorkshire goats cheese salad and split a hazelnut, marzipan type pudding with my mum! Service was great and got some great little gifts to take away!

Yes it is known to be a nice twee place but have to say was disappointed. The staff were fabulous , the food over priced and the room, we were seated after a 20 minute wait by the window , was freezing.

The tea took us back to our youth. We bought some and have invested in a teapot so we can appreciate proper tea. The food was delicious, chicken schnitzel and sausages wonderful. Cake trolley a delight to see and taste. Service fantastic. Overall a great experience and we can't wait to return. Many thanks to all.

I visited Bettys tearoom in Ilkley yesterday with family. The four of us girls arrived at 3.30pm and queued for a table. As Bettys do not take table bookings, you have to queue for a table. This was fine as we were seated within 15 minutes of arriving. We all had the afternoon tea, which is £18.50 per person. This... More

The trip to Betty's was lovely. Beautifully presented food and attentive staff. The food was lovely - fresh, tasty ingrediants. Be warned though, you will need a second mortgage!

Had lunch here - you can't book so best to be early - lovely tasty food and good friendly service. They also catered well for children with colouring leaflet and crayons.

We visit Ilkley a few times a year and having breakfast in Betty's at least once is compulsory. At first glance it can look a rather stuffy place locals, mostly pensioners clearly who have money to burn at every eye angle. However the staff at Betty's welcome everyone the same and are friendly and helpful. They can't do enough for... More

We have tried to visit Betty's before unsuccessfully as it is a very popular tourist destination. I would definitely go again but its a place you go... More
