Never visited the 'SMALLER' version of Betty's before but how lovely was this. Tempted in by the treats in the shop below! Purchased the Tea Room blend tea bags and a fat rascal (as you do?!) I ventured upstairs. Short queue on the stairs and in I go. Table for one in the window!! I was offered choice of newspaper... More

Whilst visiting York with two Spanish friends I thought it would be a good experience to take them to a Betty's tea House and as we were near the Stonegate one I opted for that one . We entered and went up the stairs but unfortunately the female manager who came out to greet us was rude when telling us... More

Wonderful café upstairs with a shop downstairs. Members of staff were friendly and seated and served fast (even though we arrived during the busier afternoon tea time). There is a large selection of cakes, coffee and Teas to choose from, so you are guaranteed to find a drink and cake for all the family. Definitely worth a visit if you... More

I visited with my Sister on a Saturday morning. Although it seemed busy, as can be expected at the weekend, we were seated fairly quickly in a quiet corner by some unused stairs and a beautiful fireplace. We ordered from the 'Afternoon Tea' section of the Menu which they had no problem with, despite it being 10am and we got... More

We had to wait about 20 mins to get a table in the cafe but boy was it worth it. We had a champagne afternoon tea and it was amazing. They were happy to swap tea for soft drinks for the children. Children were provided with colouring and activity sheets. The tea was served in proper silverware and the sandwiches... More

The Betty's is really famous, therefore the queue exists ALL THE TIME!!! Although you can reserve a table online on Thursday to Sunday, the price is relative expensive. However, the queue goes really quickly, so it is definitely worth going. The sandwiches and scones are much better than the cakes (purely based on my taste). Betty's also provide daily cake... More

if you've been to Betty's before you will know what to expect and if you haven't you will not be disappointed. The biggest downside outwith the queue is the choice once you are in so take your time and enjoy the ambience from a bygone era.
