“Tasty trip to Betty's”
Reviewed August 28, 2014

We visited around 1130 and had no issues getting a table waiting only around five minutes. Extensive menu we opted for a decaf cappuccino, a Betty's blend tea and a fat rascal. I'd have to agree it is pricey, but you get what you pay for. It is no more expensive than any other tea room of similar quality eg Sally Lunns in Bath. The service was polite and efficient and it was nice to see a good balance of male and female waiting staff. Would definitely come back to try again.

“Bit of a climb up the stairs”
Reviewed August 27, 2014

Very nice 'Olde English' tea room but be aware that there is a climb up stairs,

Rather pricey but you are paying for the ambiance, I had a rather nice Breakfast Tea.

Excellent service with a smile.

“High afternoon tea”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

We were very lucky to get a table for afternoon tea at Bettys (st helens square)only tried for a table the week before and friends saying you need to book at least four to six weeks ahead,we managed to get a table for five pm,we upgraded to the champagne as well and the whole experience was very good.My wife chose the China Rose Petal Tea and i had the Ceylon Blue Sapphire Tea. We both agreed we had made an excellent choice. Overall a great afternoon tea,one we would definitely do again.

“Wow well worth the wait”
Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

Came to york to visit a friend & she bought me here! It's so popular that there is always a que so please expect this. I'm disabled & if I can stand & question so can the rest of the population. The que soon went down & if you are in 2/3's you will get in quicker.
The prices are standard prices for afternoon tea.
I don't eat meat & they replaced the meat sandwiches for veggie ones but kept the fish ones as per my request.
It all was gorgeous & very filling and the service was superb!
A trip to York is not complete without coming here - it's a must!
I will defo be back

“Trying to be something it's not”
Reviewed August 21, 2014 via mobile

Didn't live up to expectations, we were loojing for a quaint little tea room.

Menu extensive, was like flicking through a book.

We went in for a cup of tea and a slice of cake. Quite expensive for what you go and we've had better elsewhere in the area.

Not much of an atmosphere in the tearoom.

We were quite lucky as there was only one person in the queue before us but upon leaving the queue was down the stairs and going into the shop.

I really wouldn't say it was worth the wait.
