It was a pleasant experience, but I have experienced much better both here and elsewhere. The service was very slow. Given how busy it always is in the school holidays you would expect them to staff appropriately, but it felt slow and the staff less...More

Apparently this is the sister one from the one in the big square. We couldn't get in that one as it was too busy and queue was massive. Went to this one and the food was amazing! Had the Rostti and then a fat rascal...More

A visit to any town with a branch of Betty's is not complete without a visit. As a fan of cafés around the world these are among the best. This is a small cosy branch with teas, cakes and coffee of the expected high standard...More

Delighted to get in (the larger Bettys had queues out the door). A very pretty, traditional tea room - shop downstairs and tea room upstairs. Arrived just in time for brunch (can highly recommend the scrambled eggs and bacon) - sadly no room for cake...More

As a regular reviewer I try to be as positive as I can on Tripadvisor. However on this occasion I am sorry that I am unable to describe our visit to Bettys in York as poor value really. My feeling from this Branch of Bettys...More

The traditional and courteous welcome took me back to childhood; the service and attention are excellent, no one feels hurried, the perfect back drop for Afternoon Tea. It doesn't matter whether you have a full Afternoon Tea, or a cake and pot of tea; and...More
