An invitation to take Afternoon Tea at Bettys

Welcome to our Lady Betty Afternoon Tea, an exquisite dining experience that has been nearly 100 years in the making. When Bettys opened in 1919, our Café Tea Rooms in Harrogate swiftly set the standard for Afternoon Tea.

Almost a century on, we’ve distilled everything we know about this most treasured British pastime to create an Afternoon Tea that we hope will tempt, delight and surprise.

Delicious new miniature cakes

Delicious miniature cakes

The Lady Betty Afternoon Tea menu is inspired by Bettys’ best loved pâtisserie and favourite Tea Rooms specialities.

You will enjoy a delightful selection of sandwiches made with breads from our award-winning Craft Bakery, delicious savouries, two types of freshly baked scones - Sultana and Lavender - and an exquisite range of seasonally developed irresistible miniature cakes.

Blended to a tea

A selection of rare and fine teas, especially sourced by Bettys own expert tea buyers to complement the menu, will include the new, exclusive Bettys Afternoon Tea Blend.

This distinctly flavoured tea brings together the depth and flavour of top quality Assam complemented by the delicate floral notes of Darjeeling – the Champagne of teas.

A splendid setting

Your Lady Betty Afternoon Tea will be presented on a sparkling silver three-tiered stand and served on fine bone china made by Royal Crown Derby, decorated with a delicate tea leaf design bespoke to Bettys.

The historic, elegant surroundings of The Imperial Room and The Belmont Room are the perfect setting for such a luxurious experience, and music from the cafe pianist completes the sense of occasion.

Who is Lady Betty?

Lady Betty has been a cherished companion for almost our entire history. She made her debut in the 1920s as the flirty covergirl for her own range of Peppermint Creams; at that time she was an usherette with something of the look of Betty Boop about her.

But she quickly revealed her chameleon personality, appearing a few years later in a stylish cloche hat on a box of Spirit Liqueur Chocolates.

Today she can be found lounging elegantly in silk pyjamas on her eponymous Chocolate Selection, looking every ounce the flapper-era society girl. But to be the host of her own Afternoon Tea is, we think, what she has secretly aspired to for all these years.
