Came fir lunch with few friends. Food was good, tea- nice as always. It was my first time enjoying lunch in here. Tried traditional lunch, but as sandwiches are not my favourite, even though they tasted good. Desserts as always top class!

Oh boy Betty's tea rooms, afternoon tea for the end of the weekend, it's a luxury but oh so worth it. Its a step back in time to being pampered and treated very specially. I love our rare trips to Yorkshire. Finished off with scones.

Very helpfully let me and elderly mum in before officially opened. Much appreciated. Swiss origins remain in the menu which mum being 50% Swiss from her father appreciates. Nicely laid out in side with views over ilkley to curly hill and beyond. Ignore car park...More
