Bettys in Harrogate, North Yorkshire

When my family took a vacation to York we were told by almost everyone we talked to that Betty’s was the place to go. We went there on our last day in the city, and it was a great goodbye to our time in England. Their desserts were the best part of the meal, in my opinion, but all the food was very good.

I got their China Rose Petal tea and a giant raspberry macaron, and both were delicious. I do not remember my own meal, but I do remember that my dad got Welsh rarebit. It was delicious. They make a point of selling local beers and other products, which I also liked.

The staff (who were very friendly and attentive) all dress like they would have in the early 1900s, and the house is decorated in the same way. It’s a great atmosphere and when you eat there you get a sense that it’s been at the heart of York for a while. There was a bit of a line to get in, but it was definitely worth the wait.



Elizabeth, college student, anthropology major, bio and history minor. I love to travel and try new foods (and teas!). I also enjoy music, books, video games as often as I can get my hands on them.

I loved tea as a kid, didn’t drink it for about ten years, and then rediscovered it a couple of years ago. Tea sometimes helps me feel better when chronic illness is making things hard. It’s also fun to experiment with!

I’m still pretty new to the types and brands of tea out there, but I’m interested in trying some of everything. My favorites are earl greys, yunnans, medium-bodied oolongs, Japanese greens, fruit, vanilla, and floral flavors (especially jasmine and rose). My least favorites are teas that are overly smoked, bitter, or contain strong hibiscus or orange peel.
