Few visitors to York fail to visit Bettys. Founded in 1919, Bettys mouth watering cakes, refreshing teas and friendly smiles have made it world famous.

Lady Betty Afternoon Tea at Bettys

Served in beautiful surroundings Thursdays – Sundays, from 11:00am to 5:30pm, our Lady Betty Afternoon Tea is inspired by Bettys’ best loved pâtisserie and favourite Tea Rooms specialities.

As our café pianist plays, you will be invited to choose from a selection of rare and speciality teas, whilst being delighted by a gleaming silver cake stand laden with dainty sandwiches, freshly baked miniature scones and exquisite handmade cakes.

To make a reservation for Afternoon Tea please contact us or go to our website to book online.

Afternoon tea at Betty's is featured as Visit England's '101 things to do before you go abroad' and it highlights its six Yorkshire locations in the Food and Drink experience category.

Recommended by Wallace & Gromit as the best place to have a nice hot cup of tea.
