What a treasure! Perfect for breakfast, afternoon tea or a stop for a cup of tea. Fantastic service and fantastic food and drinks. We're so glad we stumbled across this beautiful place.

We had to wait about 20 mins to get a table in the cafe but boy was it worth it. We had a champagne afternoon tea and it was amazing. They were happy to swap tea for soft drinks for the children. Children were provided with colouring and activity sheets. The tea was served in proper silverware and the sandwiches... More

The Betty's is really famous, therefore the queue exists ALL THE TIME!!! Although you can reserve a table online on Thursday to Sunday, the price is relative expensive. However, the queue goes really quickly, so it is definitely worth going. The sandwiches and scones are much better than the cakes (purely based on my taste). Betty's also provide daily cake... More

if you've been to Betty's before you will know what to expect and if you haven't you will not be disappointed. The biggest downside outwith the queue is the choice once you are in so take your time and enjoy the ambience from a bygone era.

Me and my boyfriend came to York for Valentines, I seen Betty's on here and decided it was the best tea room to visit, I wasn't wrong! We had macaroons (one of every flavour!) and a fruit tart. The fruit tart was the best I've ever had and the macaroons were scrumptious especially the raspberry one, wow! We had to... More

We had tea and cakes here as you should when visiting Betty's. Expensive but this is a York and a World renowned tea room. Prefer it to the larger shop

Stopped here for a spot of tea and cake before our long journey back to Cambridge and we were not disappointed. I love Betty's and we were sat quickly and given menus. Our waitress came over to take our order which was very prompt and she was ever so friendly with offering to split our scones and give us separate... More

This was my first visit to Betty's in Stonegate. I've been to their main venue nearby and know what to expect. The Stonegate venue is smaller and the cafe is upstairs but the quality and service is exactly the same; fine teas, brilliant coffees and delicious cakes. It's worth knowing that this Betty's exists since there are often long queues... More

Betty's tearooms are famous around the world and I think if you are a visitor in York it is a 'must try' once to experience it. Betty's provides charm of the old tea room style and in general service and quality of cakes, breads and pastries is excellent. One feels a sense of elegance in here and all food items... More

Betty's service and cakes are second to none. Well worth a visit to experience the old traditional charm of a tearoom.
