It’s nearly 100 years since the first Bettys opened, and there are things that even the biggest Bettys fan might not know about us. Here are some tales from the archive and recommendations for your next Bettys visit.
This weekend the world’s best cyclists will be racing around the hills, dales and moors of our beautiful county on the Tour de Yorkshire, and to celebrate we’ve created a pair of cycling-themed biscuits.
After nearly 100 years, Bettys has a great many tales to tell, including the one about the wrong train, the story of the forgotten Tea Rooms, and the time an overheard conversation changed the course of history. Make a cup of tea, slice a piece of cake, and get comfortable as we tell you 10 things you might not know about Bettys.
For many years the Queen’s Awards have been acknowledged as the country’s most prestigious business awards – and we’re thrilled that our family business just been honoured with a 2017 Queen’s Award for Sustainable Development, recognising our work to build a resilient and sustainable tea and coffee supply chain.
If you’re looking for an original alternative to an egg as a gift this Easter, may we suggest this delightful fellow? For someone trotter-deep in mud he looks pretty contented – and so he should be, for he’s made from the same delicious Swiss Grand Cru milk chocolate that we use for our Easter Eggs.
As you may have noticed, we love talking about our chocolatiers – they’re a talented bunch and as Easter approaches, there’s no better time to share secrets of how they work their magic.
Meet our chocolatiers Kirsty Mitchison and Josie Raine, stars of this year's Easter film. With more than half a century of Bettys experience between them, there’s no one better to take care of this Easter’s batch of good eggs.
When we talk about good eggs, we don’t just mean the delicious, handcrafted chocolate eggs in our shops this Easter. We also mean the people who’ll help to make your visit feel magical – like Elaine, Amanda, Dawn and all the good eggs at Bettys Northallerton.
All six Bettys Café Tea Rooms in Northallerton, Ilkley, York and Harrogate will be open as usual over the Easter period, so come visit us if you need a last minute gift or a place to celebrate with friends and family.
