Description: Located in the beautiful village of Heath, less than 2 miles from Wakefield City Centre and the Hepworth Museum. This picturesque 18th century cottage provides perfect surroundings for a quaint yet stylish English Tea Room. White linen table clothes offset the bright cotton napkins, both of which compliment the white bone china. You can choose from homemade soups, sandwiches, light lunches and cakes. Taylor's of Harrogate provide their Tea Room Blend to make the perfect cup of tea and the coffee served is made with freshly ground Columbian beans. In the summer there is seating in the pleasant cottage garden where you will be served to the same high standard of fayre as in the Tea Room; or you can simply sit and enjoy one of more than nine Yorkshire Dales ice cream flavours available. Whatever you choose you will not be disappointed. If after your visit, you feel the need to walk off the calories you can enjoy a stroll around the Common or go further afield to Bluebell woods.

“An absolute delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Have just been taken here for lunch by my brother in law. Despite having walked around the area for a few years, I didnt know this tea room existed. I am so glad I do now!! Charming little touches make this a very special place to have coffee, lunch or afternoon tea. Well worth a visit.

“Perfect!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Visited today (18/3/13) for the first time. From the moment you arrive at this little tearoom you feel instantly cheered up. The lovely hanging teacups in the window,the fairylight heart, bunting and the other charming little touches, lift your spirits and put you in the perfect frame of mind for afternoon tea. We all had the Heath Afternoon Tea, which from the dainty sandwiches, beautiful cake and the scrummy cinnamon scones had us all "oohing and aahing"....
We were made to feel so welcome and as Tea Room connoisseurs (lol) we thought this place was absolutely perfect and a delight to visit...We shall be back again very soon.

“I'd forgotten little tea rooms as good as this existed.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Small, but perfectly formed. This delightful little tea room in Heath, just outside Wakefield is wonderful. Dainty little napkins and cheerful staff, brilliant customer service. The soups, homemade are warming, and sandwiches, filling. The chocolate cake made with Guinness, wonderful. As a previous reviewer said, "It could become addictive"

“Quality with a smile,”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Superb quality in every aspect of what you experience, attention to detail ranges from the knapkins on the table to where the tea blends are sourced. Home baked cakes of the highest quality with choice and variation. The surroundings and location are like nothing you will experience anywhere else and that includes Betty's, stylist and quaint - an absolute must.
