Café Tea Rooms
From tea top-ups to the best seat in the house: we asked the real Bettys experts – the people who have been coming to our Café Tea Rooms for years – to share their insider knowledge and tips.
Join us at Bettys Open for Business, a networking breakfast in the elegant surroundings of our event suites in York (Thursday 22nd June) and Harrogate (Friday 23 June) from 8am to 10am.
As bakers, breadmaking is at the heart of our craft so a great deal of love (and early morning starts) went into creating these breads. We hope you enjoy tasting these loaves as much as we enjoy baking them.
A few miles from Richard and Ronda Morritt’s farm, I see a reassuring signpost. ‘Fresh asparagus for sale’ it reads. I’m relieved. Despite the claims of my sat-nav, I had begun to doubt whether I was in the right place. As picturesque as this corner of North Yorkshire is, there’s a reason why it’s called Sand Hutton. Surely such dry soil wouldn’t yield such a luxurious, succulent crop as asparagus?
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.
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.
As flowers cautiously unfurl and the sun threatens to become more than a half-remembered rumour, our inventive chefs have been busy cooking up new seasonal dishes to add to our Café Tea Rooms menus. Think of it as a kind of spring clean for your tastebuds, a fiesta of fresh ingredients to awaken the senses and drive away the last of the winter cobwebs.
Come closer. We want to tell you a secret. It’s called Bettys Stonegate and it’s our hidden gem. Locals know it well – it’s where they head to skip the queues. Step inside and step back in time – into the shop with its beautifully arrayed treats, then up the winding stairs to roaring fireplaces, window seats and intimate nooks. Romantic, cosy and unmistakably Bettys. Let’s just keep it between us, shall we?

It’s all in the anticipation. Noses pressed up against a Christmas window display. The aroma of freshly baked mince pies. Holding tightly onto one end of a cracker. Eyes widening at the rustle of wrapping paper. The excitement of the festive season starts long before the day itself. And with Bettys, you can make Christmas every bit as special as you and your loved ones imagine.
