About us

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. The menus feature a unique mix of continental classics and British favourites – plus, of course, Bettys’ legendary afternoon tea which is one of Visit England's '101 things to do before you go abroad'.

To experience it for yourself, simply visit any Bettys, any day, at any time. It’s always afternoon tea time with Bettys.

Alternatively, for those wishing to book ahead, the reservation-only luxury Lady Betty Afternoon Tea is served in the first floor Belmont Room in York, which features beautiful interiors inspired by the Queen Mary ocean liner.

To make a reservation for Lady Betty Afternoon Tea please contact Bettys on 01904 659142 or book online (served Thursdays – Mondays from 12pm, and from 11am on Saturdays).

The art deco Belmont Room is also available for group bookings and private functions, bringing a true sense of occasion to any event.
