The Lady Betty Afternoon Tea at Bettys York #Review

The Lady Betty Afternoon Tea at Bettys York – Review: November 2018

Fabulous Festivities nearing in full swing, this is the perfect time, for you to indulge in an opulent, exquisite and lavish Lady Betty Afternoon Tea at the iconic Bettys tearoom in York city centre.

A York institution, a visit to Betty’s famous tea rooms on St Helen’s square is a must.  First served in the 1920’s Betty’s have refined and evolved their exquisite Afternoon tea experience.

Lavish in the Lady Betty Afternoon tea, men are welcome too – this is not just a treat for the ladies, served in the tranquil setting of the Belmont room, with interiors inspired by the Queen Mary Ocean liner, and a perfect pianist playing an assortment of musical melodies, you would be mistaken for stepping back in time to a bygone era of elegance and opulence.

Proceedings at Bettys begin with the most amazing pea, cucumber & tomato cocktail appetiser.  Along with some the sensational savouries, including the Smoked salmon Romanov with beetroot and lemon crème fraîche, on a wholemeal croute and the miniature pork & apple pie.  Also, the vegetarian offerings including miniature spring onion & herb frittata and the super sun-dried tomato & basil roulade with rocket leaves served on a wholemeal croute.

Why not get fizzy with it and add on some champs or opt for the non-alcoholic Elderflower bubbly which was just as royally refreshing.

The main Afternoon Tea, a selection of delightful, delicious and dainty offerings, served on sensational stylish silver tea stands, included a range of fresh and fabulous finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream & jam and lovely pretty pastries all perfectly presented.

Dietary requirements are well catered for at Bettys, with there being a variety of alternatives for Vegetarians, Vegans and gluten free.  Any doubts or questions just ask the Bettys team and they will be happy to help.

Streamlined service, employees that excelled and the tastiest of offerings, book Bettys for an unforgettable experience.

Thank you for reading 😊

  1. I have always wanted to take my mum to the Bettys in Harrogate! We live in the south so it isn’t so easy but it is somewhere she has a happy memory of going with my dad before he died. One day… so pleased to hear they cater well for allergies too as that is me!

  2. oh my! I’d LOVE to go there! I’ve never made it to a Betty’s yet – walked past the one in Harrogate several times, but never managed to get a table yet as they are so popular. You can see why from your photos!
