We went for afternoon on a busy Sunday afternoon. We'd seen the queues at the larger Betty's across town, and weren't hopeful of getting a table, but the Stonegate branch were able to seat us almost immediately. We all had the afternoon tea which was excellent, especially the small, square, rich chocolate cake. My daughter also ordered a hot chocolate... More

I felt totally underdressed in this classy eatery. There was a small queue when we arrived but it got even longer by the time we were seated so it gives you an idea that it's a very popular place to visit. We were served very quick and had assorted tea snacks but main meals were also available. Our waitress was... More

We were recommended by friends to visit Betty's during our stay in York and decided to go for lunch. It was a Saturday and there was a queue (at the bottom of the stairs)and we waited for about 20-25 min. Upstairs is fairly small but it's very elegant and a typical high end tearoom. The prices are fairly high and... More

Bettys is an institution and our visit fully satisfied. We wanted a traditional afternoon tea, with excellent tea and tiered cake plate including a few dainty sandwiches, a cream scone and some dainty perfect pastries. The queues show the popularity of Bettys, although we only had a 10 minute wait

Called in for a coffee one Saturday morning, fortunately before the rush. We were seated more or less straight away at a lovely table by the window. We ordered two different pots of coffee and some cinnamon toast to share. The coffee wasn't strong enough for us, not sure whether this was because we drink it black or if we... More

Popped in for a coffee and the place was still packed at 8:30pm. Still got the same nice atmosphere ... Amazing as always ... Might come back tomorrow for afternoon tea

Had lunch here for my birthday while visiting York. This tearoom is quite small compared to the other 'Bettys' in York but is an excellent place to enjoy a meal or just a cake & tea. We had sandwiches with a side bowl of chips to share followed by a heart shaped cream cake with sliced strawberries & tea. Everything... More

And the "upstairs" is just soooooo lovely .... Staff with little white hats and proper aprons .... Nothing is too much trouble ... Fab choices of... More

A very nice afternoon tea experience in a historic building. Very polite staff wearing old-fashioned uniforms, lovely scones and refreshing tea. Betty's must have been recommended in some travel guidebooks from Japan and other East Asian countries. Adds some diversity to the audience. btw they can also do fish and chips very well. It all comes at a price but... More

Wow! What a fabulous experience from start to finish! We arrived for a late breakfast and were not disappointed - loved the service and quaint surroundings. Service was slick and efficient, but with a Yorkshire warmth....nothing was too much trouble.
