“Afternoon Tea”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

We went for afternoon tea on a Sunday as special treat for our 25th wedding anniversary.
We had to book some time in advance to make sure of the date we required as the afternoon tea is very popular.
We had pink champagne with our tea as it was a special occasion.
The tea, in the Belmont room, consists of a pot of tea of your choice from the 18 on offer, sandwiches as many as you want, two mini scones with cream and jam and three of the Bettys heavenly miniature cakes.
Whilst you are enjoying your food the pianist is playing and this coupled with the setting, the helpful staff and the ambience make it a memorable and special occasion.

“An institution, does what it does perfectly well”
Reviewed 5 December 2013 via mobile

Stopped in for a cup of tea and cake at 5 after a trawl around the shops. Yes it is an institution and unchanged for years, however the choice of tea was excellent, particularly the Ceylon sapphire blue, with excellent macaroons. There may well be better more modern / innovative tea rooms but it has to be experienced.

“Not to be Missed”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

A visit to Betty's is a must whenever I am in Harrogate. Aside from the lovely atmosphere, there is a chance to sample some specialist tea or coffee and a wonderful selection of cakes. The fat rascals are definitely worth a try! If you like what you've had, the shop section has a wide variety of goodies to take home as well.

“Cosy and welcoming”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

My partner decided to try Betty's as we have never visited before. We had to queue for a good - minutes which we expected.

We ate downstairs which was warm and cosy by the window. My partner enjoyed his food but it was a bit too rich for me.

Overall it seems a tad expensive for what you get.
