The vast majority of complaints about Betty's Café seem to be about the prices charged not the quality of the food which, in my experience is always of a high standard. I often observe those folk perusing the menu and then pointing with incredulity at the prices, and tutting audibly . . . . This really is a source of... More

Birthday lunch and the meal was as good as ever. At the end of the meal the lovely waitress brought me a fondant fancy with a candle on the top. What a kind little gesture much appreciated.

We finished our short holiday with afternoon tea at Betty's and it was a perfect end. All the food is wonderfully presented and served. It was an enjoyable eating experience and of course you can't leave without bringing something home from the shop!

Less crowded that Betty's in Harrogate and slightly less formal, but the formula is the same - excellent tea and cakes, served with style.

Saturday brunch was perfect as usual. Fine Eggs Benedict and lovely Rosti with poached eggs mushroom and tomatoes. Very good Gerwurtztraminer and the best coffee and cake imaginable. Even though there was the usual queue it was efficiently handled and we were seated fairly quickly. Staff as always were attentive, friendly and efficient. Can't wait to visit again.

Had an excellent lunch. Can recommend blue cheese, pear and walnut salad. Ask to choose a roll from basket - pumpkin seed exceptional. Service fantastic. Worth every penny and I'm from Yorkshire!!! We took home some fat rascals - yummy.

On coming into ilkley amongst the range of venues decided to head to Betty's as haven't been to one for a long time and in no rush. Short queue waiting some ten minutes to be seated. Staff friendly and welcoming with good service. Good range menu as always. Compared to other Betty's this place seemed smaller but was clean and... More

I've been "treated", by myself & others, to meals at various Bettys over the past 50 years & this was one of the most enjoyable visits.
