Going to Betty's is a special treat and is more expensive. When we went into the tea rooms only one table was free and a waitress cleared this for us, however another table became free in the window and we preferred to sit there. It seems the waitress was unhappy with this. We ordered a selection of small taster cakes and latte each and these took a while to be served.
Betty's is very popular and there can be long queues to get a table

My husband and I made a special trip to have brunch here, well worth it! We had to queue for ten minutes as it is so popular and were then shown to a table in the middle floor seating area (there are 3 floors). Although they were busy - as I’m sure they always are- we were served promptly and warmly by a waitress in traditional dress. I had the florentine rosti and hubby had eggs benedict. Both were delicious! Washed down with a cafetière of coffee each. If we’d had room we’d have tried a beautiful cake and the afternoon teas being served looked sumptuous and in such beautiful surroundings! We bought some treats to take home for family from the shop, also a long queue but worth the wait also. The window display was beautifully set up for Easter. Definitely recommend if you’re in Harrogate.

Me and my husband have been for the Lady Betty afternoon tea. 3 tiny sandwiches each. We were offered more but my husband had to ask again. We were told no. Assam tea very weak. Selection of cakes BETWEEN us so we had to share. Hard scones. All for £65. Wouldnt go back.

Be wary of if you want an afternoon tea for a special occasion. Our daughter had given us a present for our Golden Wedding Anniversary to have tea at Bettys in Harrogate (Parliament Street) on Tuesday, 27th March. We phoned at 9.00 am on the day to reserve a table for later that day. We were told that they did not accept reservations, but to just come along and they were open until 9.00 pm in the evening. We arrived at 3.20 pm, and were told that afternoon teas were sold out, but we were offered sandwiches and a cake. So we eventually decided to go elsewhere for an afternoon tea. How can any decent establishment that specialise in afternoon teas, sell out by 3.20 pm in the afternoon with no more available for that day? In the event we had an equally good which only took 10 minutes to prepare. afternoon tea at our hotel. Very poor management at Bettys, so buyer beware; you could be very disappointed if it is for a special occasion.
