“Fantastic”

Love going to Betty's. Its always a good experience. The afternoon tea is to die for. Fat rascals are quite the experience... save room or take one away :)

“A cut above”
Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

The best toasted tea cake I have ever had. Melted in the mouth. Beautiful setting. Great service. Shame about the price!

“Nicest Betty's experience”
Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

Some how this one had brighter atmosphere, nicer staff, fresher food, than the one in harrogate. You pay a premium for the Betty's experience, at least it was worth it here. We definitely don't go for the Swiss experience (as we live in Switzerland) but are nonetheless less amused by the Swiss dishes and wine on the menu.

“Not just a meal, it's an expeience”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

We had just decided that we had waited long enough by the "please wait to be seated" sign (that's the reason I only give four stars for service) when a very pleasant young waitress came and showed us a couple of tables to chose from. After that, everything was brilliant, and to be fair, the maîtresse d' did appear shortly afterwards as the lunchtime queue began to form.
Service is professional, efficient, and politely friendly. Proper tablecloths, real old style china and silverware. A discreet buzz of conversation. Well spaced tables.
Our teas and drinks arrived promptly, but the food is obviously cooked to order. I chose chicken Caesar salad, which was a delicious surprise. A very fresh salad with hot goujons of chicken breast wrapped in tasty bacon, obviously straight from the grill, they even had a slight barbecue taste.
Go for a 1919 experience at 2014 prices, go for the food, but don't go for a quick meal, you need to linger to get the full enjoyment.
As we left though the shop, we bought a selection of cakes to take home with us, not cheap, but very much appreciated by all.

“Afternoon tea”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

We went for afternoon mid-week as we know Bettys is a popular venue, we arrived just after lunch time and had to queue and wait for about 10 minutes which was fine. We were greeted and seated by a lovely friendly waitress who sat us down and showed us the menu. We knew we wanted the afternoon tea and selected the Bettys afternoon tea to go with it. The tea and afternoon tea all came out together which we had requested. The bread for the sandwiches was really soft, we had a selection of white and brown bread with chicken mayonnaise, egg mayonnaise, ham and roast beef all of which were very tasty. We had a scone with clotted cream and jam. The selection of cakes were beautifully presented and tasted delicious. Cannot fault the service or the food quality, will certainly be back again to try a breakfast.
