We wanted to have cream tea to warm up from a misty, cold day exploring York. The original Betty's around the corner turned out to be a favourite of many, as people were queuing all the way back to the corner of the street. We decided to try out it's smaller shop. We still had to queue for about 25... More

We visited Bettys as part of an overnight stay in York. Having had afternoon tea there before and enjoying the whole experience, we decided to visit for dinner. There is a nice choice of starters and main courses. We chose steak and ale pie and a potato rosti with salmon, deciding to miss starters to leave room for dessert. The... More

After waiting a short while for a table we were shown to a table for two in front of the fire which was appreciated on a cold day. I chose the Swiss rosti breakfast and my friend went for scrambled eggs and smoked salmon on a toasted muffin. We both ordered a pot of tea which came with hot water... More

Would highly recommend a visit... More

We decided to try this smaller Betty's Tearoom as the bigger tearoom is always too busy with constant queues waiting for seats.This was our first visit to Betty`s Tearoom .Although it is more expensive than a coffee shop it was worth it for the excellent service and tasty mince pies!!The tearoom is above the shop selling Betty goodies so there...

Lovely cute and cosy tea rooms by the famous Betty's. Located on Stonegate, it's easy to access and has clear instructions on seating. All the staff were prompt and warning when spoke to. Sat very quickly and had a choice of the 2 tables left in the busy tea rooms. Promptly asked for our order and it was very quickly... More

It was a very wet and windy day I called into Bettys for breakfast, I got shown to a table immediately as I had arrived. The fire was lit and it was lovely and cosy I ordered Eggs Royale on brown toast and a cafetière of coffee. My order arrived promptly and presentation was lovely and my breakfast was superb....

A friend of ours recommended eating in Bettys and I'm so glad we did. It was so cosy and typical of the olden days with waitresses dressed up in traditional uniforms. I was a bit worried about what my 5 year old daughter would eat as it didn't look child friendly when they gave me a "little rascals" menu and... More
