    I was disappointed to find tea stains on the table cloth. I was also disappointed that the beef and horseradish sandwiches were not available. The food choices were poor and very expensive for the amount received, I felt some quiche or pastries would have complemented the platter. The staff were professional and friendly but never offered us extra food but did deliver once we asked. The pianist was nice but we had periods of no pianist at all. Overall it was for a special occasion but I would not repeat it in the future.

    Lovely experience at Betty's! I booked afternoon tea in the Belmont Room for my mum's birthday and we had a wonderful afternoon, we opted for the prosecco version for a small additional fee but tea was unlimited and you're able to request more sandwiches, scones etc if you wish. All of the staff were so attentive and the pianist was an extra special touch, I would definitely recommend and it truly felt special for an occasion.

    Little disappointed as we felt the scones were ridiculously small and the spiced orange scones hard - the sandwiches were lovely but felt the cake selection was limited and overly sweet. For the price we paid we have had better value at other tea rooms and wouldn’t recommend Betty’s. The service was a little slow and we waited 15 mins after our allocated time slot to be serviced and then felt rushed to leave. Shame as we were celebrating 2 x 60th birthdays and we’re looking forward to our afternoon tea.

Attention to detail was above and beyond and the level of care given from the time we handed over our coats, to the waitress you provided us time and information, the day was so special and it will be a memory we will never forget

Everything done properly and tastefully. Having the pianist is just lovely, creates a very calm and gentle ambience.

    First time that we had booked an afternoon tea and it did not disappoint. We were made to feel extremely valued, the staff were excellent. The food was amazing and we were surprised how filling the menu was which included a replenish of sandwiches. So many little details and touches made our afternoon magical. We particularly enjoyed the pianist and atmosphere.

    Lovely atmosphere in the Belmont Room and the staff were brilliant, but food didn’t feel worth the £40 price: - Salmon topped bread was fine - Egg and Chive sandwich was lovely but overchived - beef and horseradish sandwich could have done with a touch more horseradish - scones were delightful and the cream was top tier, I wasn’t keen on the citrus one but that’s personal preference - praline layered cake slice was nice - a mini shortcrust tart with a jam middle and topped with a berry mousse and white chocolate flakes was okay but I felt the base was a little too hard (not crunchy, more like it had been in the fridge too long), and the various textures didn’t really mix well - chocolate torte I didn’t try but my friend felt was too chocolatey, this is the sort of thing that is personal preference though - Teas were absolutely delightful, I had the breakfast blend and a ceylon blue sapphire which was lovely Overall the food could have been better but everything else was lovely, from the piano playing to the cleanliness of the toilets, as well as the fact that all food and tea was refillable

    My husband and I visited York for a weekend and Betty’s high tea was the first thing we did. What a great way to start our weekend. The food was delicious, the service was outstanding, and the piano player was superb. The Betty’s Blend Afternoon Tea was really lovely. We loved the entire experience.

    A bit concerned when we first arrived by a huge queue at the door, however, for pre-booked afternoon tea, we were directed to a different entrance by the staff. On arrival, we were greeted a booked in and escorted to our table when the menu was explained. Must admit to getting very emotional at hearing one of my favourite songs played by the pianist at the grand piano. The room was beautifully laid out, personally felt very underdressed in jeans, but there’s no set dress code so alls good. Staff member Rosie arrived and introduced herself, saying she would be looking after us during our visit. She was very knowledgable and explained the menu and all the teas available, 13 in total to choose from! I’m not a tea drinker, but she was able to recommend one she thought I’d like, and she was absolutely right. The sandwiches and cakes were fresh and absolutely delicious. For those unable to finish, the staff will box up leftovers to take home. As we were celebrating our anniversary, we had a glass of Prosecco which was chilled perfectly. All in all, a fabulous experience. It is the more expensive end of the scale for afternoon tea, but definitely worth it for the experience and a real treat.

    Promptly sat down at a wonderful window view. The Afternoon Tea set menu was my order and the food exceeded my expectations. The only issue was our server— I believe he forgot about us and than we no longer saw him — due to lack of a server did not get to try more tea options and another server ended up bringing us our bill.

    We had a wonderful afternoon tea at Bettys. From the moment we arrived until we left, there was the right amount of friendly service and the food was superb, catering for all of our dietary requirements. It was my mams birthday and she received a small cake with a candle and the pianist played happy birthday, which made our day. Would recommend bettys for any celebration or family catch up. Thank you for making our afternoon amazing.

    Seated quickly but not acknowledged for 15 minutes. Felt as though we were seated in an area that was an overflow and left by staff. Staff rushed and not engaging or descriptive about teas. Ambience was lacking although there was a pianist. Overpriced for the quantity of food. We had to ask for more milk, more tea - told we could have more sandwiches but not offered them. Portions small. This really was a nothing special, having had afternoon tea numerous times - I feel I have enough experience to say this really was the worst I have had. Set your expectations low and it will be ok. I’m of the opinion if you only do one thing (afternoon tea) at least do it well!

    A little disappointed with the patisserie which was not of the quality experienced on previous visits - could get far nicer from supermarkets at a fraction of the price. Having said that, the rest of the afternoon tea (sandwiches etc) was nice but I don't think this justified the price. Service was good and very prompt and professional.
