Visited Saturday at lunchtime during cold snowy afternoon. Only a 15 minute wait for a table. Food and drink were nice but they had run out of brown bread for afternoon tea. Served on brown rolls instead which was nice enough. Although a pleasant experience...More

Oh boy Betty's tea rooms, afternoon tea for the end of the weekend, it's a luxury but oh so worth it. Its a step back in time to being pampered and treated very specially. I love our rare trips to Yorkshire. Finished off with scones.

As regular Aussie visitors who are now a bit beyond the "C"s -castles, cathedrals, churches and cottages - we are always on the lookout for "experiences." A chap in a little village in south Cumbria told us about Betty's Tea-room in Ilkley in west Yorkshire....More

As always Betty’s hasn’t let me down. The food, drinks and service are always impeccable. I visit Betty’s on a regular basis, because I simply love it. My only gripe would be that Betty’s do not use organic milk, which is a shame.

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
