We visited Betty's for a Birthday treat. I had booked Afternoon Tea for two in the Imperial Room and it definitely lived up to what we had been anticipating. Stepping through the doors was like stepping back in time... in the best possible way. The pianist was the most charming old man, who kept us entertained throughout and provided a wonderful atmosphere. We were seated by a window, which I would recommend if you are able to select a table, as it gave us wonderful scenic views of Harrogate and was a little more private than some of the other tables. The food was beautiful as expected and our waiter was very attentive, even offering to get us more sandwiches if we want - we took him up on this offer and then were even better second time round. Desperate to go back again....a treat for the eyes, ears and tummy!!

I wont queue to eat so if you want fast without being herded like cattle then this is not for you.
Your stuffed in and out fast high season and have to queue for at least 30 mns in the cold,,,,HOWEVER, go out of season and its fabulous. what more can I say. Expensive but worth it. they have a great assortment of cakes and the tiered tea cake sandwich and cake tray is lovely, all with fresh brewed tea. Nice!

Queued up outside for 30mins maybe more,10 more inside.. Very busy but lovely ambiance, fine china, Arthur price cutlery, the lot.. Finally seated, I had the high tea and my partner had chips and a sandwich. Expecting high standard food, but.. My sandwiches were been pre-made and stale and my boyfriends chips tasted like they were cooked in old fat (oil needed changing). Not so bad if u were in a greesy spoon, but we'd queued up expecting brilliance and it was all furr coat and no knickers! :-( disappointing

We stopped here for a classic cup of tea and cake, it was really just like stepping back in time and the cafe and restaurant are on different levels many with good window views. This is a bit of a tourist trap but as a treat really worthwhile. The selection of fresh teas and coffees are superb albeit a bit expensive. The ambience in the place is excellent and I suggest you go early before the queues start at lunchtime.
Glad we dropped in, a really classical olde worlde tea shoppe.

We had morning coffee and a cake each and both were delicious. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The only downside was the cost, Betty's trades on it's name and it is very good but also expensive compared to other good coffee/tea rooms. Nevertheless if we visit North Yorkshire again we will, no doubt, visit again.
