  INTRODUCTION

Each Bettys has a different feel to it. At the RHS Gardens at Harlow Carr in Harrogate, we have created a Bettys fit for an English country garden.

We offer all the usual delights of a visit to Bettys - delicious cakes, freshly baked bread, scrumptious three course meals and, of course, the high standards and friendly smiles - but in a very different location.

Here you will enjoy an elevated position overlooking the beautiful grounds of RHS Garden Harlow Carr. The 58-acre garden can be found 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'. As it's located alongside rather than inside, you don't have to pay to enter the gardens in order to visit Bettys.

Bettys Harrogate logo
  INTRODUCTION

The story of Bettys began in 1919 when our founder, Frederick Belmont, opened his first Bettys Café Tea Room in the fashionable spa town of Harrogate

The combination of mouth-watering Swiss confectionery and Yorkshire warmth and hospitality in such an elegant setting proved irresistible. Bettys was an instant success. Nearly 100 years on, Bettys Harrogate remains as popular as ever. Providing a wonderful relaxed setting for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and evening meals, Bettys offers one of the best spots in town to enjoy the beauty of the town's surroundings.

From the swathes of crocuses which herald the spring, through to the autumn colours, the Stray is always a delight, and a window table at Bettys is the best place to enjoy it. You'll also discover our shop where you will be spoilt for choice with over 300 breads, cakes and chocolates, as well as 50 different teas and coffees, and a small delicatessen section with pastries, salads and soups.

  INTRODUCTION

With its quaint and traditional interior, Bettys Stonegate (previously known as "Little Bettys") is a charming place to take a break from shopping or sightseeing in the famous city of York.

Situated in a listed building on medieval Stonegate, just a stone's throw from York Minster, you'll be greeted by a characterful shop with antique dressers and cabinets, stocked with an extensive range of teas and coffees, cakes and gifts.

Up a flight of winding stairs there's a cosy café with wooden beams, and roaring fires in the winter. Just as our cakes and breads celebrate the best of traditional craft skills, so too do our interiors.

At Bettys Stonegate be sure to look out for fixtures and fittings by the 'Mouseman of Kilburn', whose oak carvings all carry a trademark 'signature' mouse. Bettys Stonegate is also home to a large collection of prints, advertisements and paraphernalia, which tell the story of the tea trade.

Bettys York

YO1 8QP

Bettys York logo
  INTRODUCTION

In 1936 the founder of Bettys, Frederick Belmont, travelled on the maiden voyage of the Queen Mary.

He was so enthralled by the splendour of the ship that he commissioned the Queen Mary's designers and craftsmen to turn a dilapidated furniture store into his most sophisticated branch yet - an elegant café in the land-locked location of St Helen's Square. Today, as you sit in Bettys, surrounded by huge curved windows, elegant wood panelling and ornate mirrors, you can almost imagine yourself aboard a luxury liner.

The art deco elegance of the Queen Mary is particularly evident in our first floor Belmont Room which was inspired by one of the cruise liner's state rooms. Throughout the year we host musical evenings and events here.


A few years after Bettys opened its doors in York war broke out, and Bettys - in particular the basement 'Bettys Bar' - became a favourite haunt of thousands of airmen stationed around York. 'Bettys Mirror', on which many of them engraved their signatures with a diamond pen, remains on display today as a fitting tribute to their bravery.

  TEA MENU

Tea

Priory House Tea Rooms serves Dunstable Tea. It offers a variety of top quality loose leaf teas created, and named, for the history and heritage of Dunstable. The range is made up of 20 different teas and infusions.

Dunstable Tea is also available for sale in loose leaf form and six varieties are also available in tea bags for just £3.00 a box:

Kingsbury ? Kenyan

This broken Orange Pekoe comes from Kenya.  The liquor is full-bodied and suffused with favour.  This tea is named after the royal residence build in 1123 by King Henry I.

Prince George ?  Blend of Assam & Kenyan

A blend of Assam and Keyan teas relased to commemorate the birth of His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.  The blend was chosen for its strength and richness, with a traditional warm dark reddish colour of Kenyan tea.

Anna Maria?s ? Afternoon Tea

China Keemun merged with Darjeeling offers tea with a little more body,  ideally suited for the afternoon, and named after the 7th Duchess of Bedford who is said to have started the trend for afternoon tea in the early 1800s.

Canon's Choice

This is a high tea from the Harmutty Tea Estate in the state of Assam.  It is brisk and robust, with a full boddied malty character.  It has been named for the Augustinian Order of Canons at Dunstable Priory. The Canons wore an all black habit and were known as the Black Canons.

Cloisters

A twisted large leaf Ceylon Orange Pekoe, grown at the Kenilworth Tea Garden in Sri Lanka.  This tea, named for the cloisters within the original Priory walls, the remains of which can still be seen in the undulating landscape of the Priory Meadow, has a lovely flavour suitable for any time of day.

Black Friars

This is a blend of Chinese teas, including Lapsang Souchong, creating a flavour with the slightest hint of smoke.  It is named for the Dominican Friars who came to Dunstable in 1259 and built a Friary to the west of High Street South.  Like the Canon's the Friars also wore a black habit and were known as the Black Friars.

Norman King

Darjeeling, known as the king of teas, is a light, black tea.  This Second Flush leaf comes from the Makaibari Tea Garden in Kurseong, West Bengal.  Named for the Norman King, Henry I who founded the Dunstable Priory in the 1100's gave Dunstable its Charters and was the Grandson of William the Conqueror

Earl Grey

It is a light, slightly perfumed tea with a hint of bergamot, making it smooth and very refreshing whether served with milk or with a slice of lemon.

Queen Eleanor

A blend of light, Green tea and winter spices a more delicate version of a classic black chai.  We have named this tea after Queen Eleanor, beloved wife of King Edward I whose body was transported from Lincoln to Westminster, stopping overnight at the Priory in December 1292.  A small commemorative statue resides in the town to replace the original cross.

Dame Sayers Peppermint

A light, Green tea infused with Pepermint Oil, named for Dame Sayers Manor, the name by which Priory House was reffered to in the late 17th century when it was left to Robert Crawley's wife following his death in 1694.

Grove House

A blend of Sencha Green Tea with Mango pieces.  This tea is named for Grove House; originally a coaching inn called the Duke's Arms.  The inn was later rented out as two houses; Grove House and The Beeches.  In the early 1900's the houses were combined into a single building once again by arthur Bagshawe and sold to Dunstable Borough Council in 1936.

Maiden Bower

A light Sencha Green tea made from small leaves, neatly rolled and uniform in shape and is especially rare.  Named for the Maiden Bower Hillfort, the most significant Iron Age monument in the country, which sits on the Green Lanes on the north west edge of Dunstable.

Infusions

Prior's Garden

This is a rich fruity infusion made up of berries which is naturally caffeine free and has a mulled wine flavour.  Named for the Monastic leader of the Cannons at the Augustinian Priory.  Priors would have had far superior accommodation often with their own garden in which to contemplate.

Queen Mary

A blood orange flavoured infusion, naturally caffeine free with a strong citrus flavour which we have named after Mary Tudor, the Bloody Queen, who throughout her reign presecuted and executed many of the leading Protestants of her time.  Her mother, Catherine of Aragon, had her marriage annulled in the Priory in 1533 and Mary in later years, gave the church a decorated wooden screen that can still be seen.

Saracen's Head

This infusion of apple and lemon pieces has a warm spiced flavour and is naturally caffeine free, we have named it for the Saracen's Head, Dunstable's oldest surviving inn.  Parts of the building date back to the 16th century, although much of the original building was destroyed in a fire in 1815. A buried hoard of Civil War coins were found hidden during the rebuild.

Tudor

Often referred to as Red Bush, Rooibos is a naturally caffeine free infusion that contains high levels of anti-oxidants.  It is grown in a small area in the region of the Western Cape province of South Africa.  This has been named for the Tudors, who have had such an impact on Dunstable.
