In 1936 Frederick Belmont, Bettys founder, travelled on the maiden voyage of the Queen Mary, during which time he was planning a new café in York. The luxury liner provided the required inspiration, and the ship's interior designers were commissioned to recreate the magnificent panelling, pillars and mirrors in the elegant new premises.
Favourite dishes include Swiss rösti, Alpine macaroni, and Yorkshire Rarebit, plus a fine selection of cakes, patisserie and desserts. Children have always been welcome, and there's a 'Little Rascals' menu, books, toys, organic baby food and both gents' and ladies' baby-changing facilities are excellent.
A café pianist enhances the atmosphere during the evening. Guide dogs only.
Step into the Belmont Room in York and be surrounded by Queen Mary-inspired Art Deco elegance. Our afternoon tea has always been special, but in the Belmont Room it truly becomes an occasion to remember.Served in the beautiful surroundings of The Belmont Room every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 12.30pm, the Afternoon Tea is just how it should be. Afternoon Tea in the Belmont Room is time for you to indulge, enjoy beautiful surroundings and good company, and to experience Yorkshire hospitality with the attention to detail that comes from being valued guests.
As the café pianist plays, you will be invited to choose from a selection of rare and speciality teas, whilst being delighted by a gleaming silver cake stand laden with dainty sandwiches, freshly baked miniature scones and exquisite handmade cakes.
Served on crisp white linen tablecloths this is an Afternoon Tea experience to savour!
