I called Bettys tea room to ask if I could have some flowers delivered to their restaurant as a surprise for my girlfriend for her birthday. The team could not have been more helpful. With only a few details to hand they managed to find my girlfriend and make her a happy lady. THANK YOU BETTYS TEA ROOM. customer service... More

Looks lovely however the reality is the cakes are not particularly palatable, over priced and the staff snooty.

Every time I go to Betty's I feel like stepping back into a great era. First time I have been to the Ilkley one and was not left disapointed. The staff were absolutely lovely and it really makes a difference when the customer service is as great as it is. I always have the vanilla slice when I go I... More

My husband and I treated ourselves to afternoon tea. The food and service was great as always. We live in Harrogate so this was our first time in the Ilkley one but we would definitely go back. Thanks!

Ilkley has a Leeds post code. However in the latter part of the 19th and early part of the 20th.centurys it would have been at home with a Bradford one.The majority of the wealthy wool barons lived in their opulent victorian villas in this genteel town. They then travelled" t'mill" by horse and carriage and latterly Rolls-Royce.I mention this because... More

I go into the cafe at Betty's at least once a month and buy products from the shop weekly if not daily!! I have tried many of their specialities and everyday products. They never disappoint and while products are not cheap they are often hand made, high quality and always value for money. Customer service is of a very high... More

You must must must visit Betty's if you come to Yorkshire. I've been lucky enough to visit often and it is always a delightful experience. The food is gorgeous and the service is exceptional. A real treat!

We had brunch here with two young children in tow. The staff could not have been more accommodating, the food was delicious and the tea room itself was spacious, comfortable and buzzing with other diners. I couldn't fault our whole brunch experience and would recommend Betty's to anybody prepared to pay a bit extra for comfort and good food.

Try to go empty as the food is irresistible and the welcome warm . A chap really needs to be with his wife (or someone else's ) to feel at home though you can sit at tables near the mirrored wall where you can watch the reflection of the room while your companions nibble and natter - lovely hats and...
