Visiting Helmsley we was wanting somewhere to go for lunch. Such a lovely tearoom. Very friendly staff, nothing too much trouble. Just had a toasted sandwich each, but so tasty. The gift shop is such a lovely addition.

Many a larger, fancier lunch restaurant or tea room would do well to come by The Beck and take a few pointers. The setting, just around the corner from the charming town square in Helmsley, is a few wee rooms put together and a tiny gift shop upstairs. The staff is extremely friendly, and helpful with ordering. We had the... More

Called in as we fancied a Sunday lunch rather than a snack and were not disappointed. We chose home made steak pies with vegetables and one with chips and one with new potatoes. Service was friendly and efficient, the meals arrived very speedily and were piping hot. A jug of extra gravy was provided so we could have more as... More

This is a lovely tea room with a good atmosphere, friendly service and excellent food. On our first visit I had mushroom soup which had plenty of mushroom slices in it with chunks of delicious bread alongside. I think it was the best mushroom soup I have ever tasted. My wife had ham sandwiches and a portion of chips. She... More

Had a most enjoyable lunch in this rather smart tea room. Service was excellent and the ploughmans lunch was the best I had for years - and enough for 2 people. Will certainly call again.

Was spending a few hours in Helmsley and wanted somewhere to eat. We have been here many times and it never disappoints!! The service is always good, (the staff have changed over the years) but the star of the show is the food. All home cooked and delicious. The steak pie is probably the bet I have every had. I...

Wanted a non-pub lunch today and thought we'd try somewhere new in Helmsley. We experienced quick and friendly service. Lovely pot of tea with extra hot water without asking. My husband's tuna mayo sandwich was perfect - plenty of filling with lovely bread and well presented side salad. My ham and cheese toastie was equally good. Plenty of hand-carved ham... More

We called in for an early lunch it wasn't too busy when we arrived but it took 20 minutes to get our drinks. The staff were friendly enough but were having a conversation which could be overhead by all the customers, lunch was nice once it arrived but they need to get their act together and leave personal conversations at...
