A quintessential Yorkshire treat : Betty's tea room
You certainly can't miss Betty's the crowning glory in St Helen's Square, the queue's can be seen well before you approach the building, and it's easy to see why, with scrumptious treats lining the window in their shop side of the building and tables piled high with afternoon tea stands. One of the key point's that makes Betty's stand out to all is not just it's delectable food offerings and it's décor, but it's open doors, not a tea room to hold dress codes you can easily dress in your casual (although not too casual!) day to day attire for a catch up with friends over tea as much as an afternoon tea for a special occasion, that relaxed yet refined atmosphere certainly makes it easy to see why it's so popular.
Whether you choose to stay and dine in, an experience which we insist you try at least once, or take some of their baked goods home with you, it's certainly worth a visit.

Taking in tea? We recommend their Fat Rascal's with a pot of their house blend Earl grey if you prefer a change to afternoon tea.
Taking away? Try a tin of their signature shortbread, a traditional treat that will be sure to run out quickly.
