Betty’s Afternoon Tea in York

Betty's Afternoon Tea in York

It was my birthday at the start of the month and my boyfriends Mum treated us to afternoon tea at Betty’s. How I got to 32 years old and never having afternoon tea before is beyond me. But I’ve done it now, I guess!

Betty’s is lovely. It’s such a stunning room where they hold the tea and I felt a bit posher than I actually am!

The service is on point, with them explaining everything you are having and asking if the food is okay.

We had two starters, then a plate of sandwiches, scones and cakes. At first, I didn’t think it looked like much, but the cakes are so sweet it’s plenty for two. We cut each in half so we both had a piece!

They ask if you are there as a celebration, my boyfriend said it was my birthday. During our time there, the live piano player started playing Happy Birthday and they brought out little cakes to the 5 or so of us celebrating our birthday. I’m not going to lie, I did cry at this point because I’m an idiot and need to get a grip!

The only downfall was there is no aircon, so avoid going when it’s a hot day. I was so hot and couldn’t wait to go to somewhere with aircon to cool down! Oh, that and the fact I cried ha.

Have you been to Betty’s before?

    Yasss, happy belated birthday! Afternoon Tea is such a classically British thing – I’ve been once on my 15th birthday and loved it as scones and clotted cream is like my favourite thing! I’ve never been to betty’s but these look so good – I have a sweet tooth, admittedly, so those cakes have me drooling! Wonderful post! x
