Bettys Cafe Tea Rooms - York

The deliciousness of treats

Freshly made cakes

No visit to York is complete without a trip to our famous Café Tea Rooms.

With beautiful interiors inspired by the Queen Mary ocean liner, it’s been making a splash since 1936. Our menus feature a unique mix of continental classics and British favourites – plus, of course, our legendary afternoon tea. Served in a relaxed and quintessentially British setting. During WWII the atmospheric Oak Room was a favourite haunt for brave airmen who left a permanent reminder of their visits in signatures written with a diamond-tipped pen on Bettys mirror. A specially devised menu, an immaculate table-setting, a pianist to serenade you: our Bookable Afternoon Tea is a truly unforgettable experience. Book ahead so you can waltz past the queues and dine in the opulent splendour of our Belmont and Imperial Rooms.
