No visit is complete to any town within Yorkshire without a visit to Betty’s. It is an amazing place with friendly professional staff. The food is out of this world.

Return visit, not so busy so we were seated straight away. We visited between breakfast and lunch and stopped in for coffee and cake. No skimmed milk option, quite a wait to take and then bring our order (unsure why it took so long), mediocre...More

Besides the scones and teas, Bettys Tea Rooms serves salads, soups, various cakes and breads and many other food items. The original one is in Harrogate which is very big but classy. One may have to stand in queue inspite of the three big rooms....More

Not been for a while, but all the portions are teeny tiny compared to before. The sandwiches with crusts cut off are small like halved after eight mints! Of course the quality is superb and the service first rate, but disappointed by cynical cost cutting.

Just under £20 per person I think but you can call and check with them as there are different options and I would definitely book as they do get busy. Jandy
