Bettys is a Yorkshire institution, a third generation business which had just five outlets until the first new Bettys Café Tea Rooms for more than thirty years opened at the Royal Horticultural Society's 58-acre Harlow Carr Gardens. This RHS Garden is located on the south-western outskirts of Harrogate and is home to peaceful woodland, meadows, flower gardens and seven historical gardens from the BBC series "Gardens Through Time".
Please note that visitors do not need to pay to enter the gardens in order to visit Bettys.
Bettys Cafe Tea Rooms at the RHS Gardens at Harlow Carr in Harrogate offer all the delights of a visit to Bettys - delicious cakes, dainty pastries, freshly baked bread, wonderful teas expertly chosen, brewed and served and, of course, the high standards and friendly smiles - but in a very different location.
The company buys and blends its own (Taylors) teas from all over the world, and a set traditional or cream tea is available. A pianist plays on Sunday 10am-1pm.
The Tea Room is beautifully decorated and stylishly furnished with Lloyd Loom chairs, granite topped tables, palm trees and a terrace overlooking the garden for fine weather.
There is also a Bettys shop and delicatessen alongside the Tea Rooms.
Throughout the summer a Bettys Tea House is located in the middle of the gardens and is the perfect place to buy a sandwich, cake and a delicious and refreshing cup of tea to enjoy as a picnic while you explore.
