    Bettys Café Tea Rooms: The Afternoon Tea Institution

    by vichatherly Updated Feb 25, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bettys Harrogate

    A fabulous treat ... worth every penny. Even if you don't stop for tea then find time to go in the shop ... you are sure to find something to tempt you.

    Favorite Dish: The Rascals are great for a takeaway nibble

    The Old Peculier Fruit Cake is a sumptous christmas treat. It's a rich fruit cake enriched with the local Masham Yorkshire brewery Theakston Old Peculier ale... what more could you want for in a cake.

    MIXED GRILL
    1 more image

    The Winter Gardens is a delightful Wetherspoons pub/restaurant in Harrogate.
    It is in a former bath house which was part of the Winter Gardens. During the 1920’s and 30’s people could sit and listen to music from the grand piano amongst beautiful potted plants and flowers.
    The food was as usual delicious. As it was Tuesday (steak club) I had mixed grill with a pint of Carling and black. (£8.09)

    Mon - Sun: 7am to 11pm

    Favorite Dish: The mixed grill is always perfectly cooked. gammon, pork, rump steak, sausage, mushroom, peas and chips.

    BETTY'S

    Betty’s is a Harrogate institution. Although it is expensive the food is delicious and the service very good. The atmosphere is of an old English tearoom with afternoon teas a speciality.

    January 2014
    visited Harrogate again today, I couldn't go to Harrogate and not buy one of Betty's delicious "fat rascals". A cross between a fruit scone and a rock cake at £1.95 each they are worth every penny.

    Favorite Dish: A fat rascal [a really large friut scone with jam and cream].

    Betty's: Perfect Place for a Graduation Breakfast

    by spidermiss Updated Apr 9, 2013
    Betty's Cafe Tea Room, Harrogate
    4 more images

    As part of a graduation treat, my parents took me to Betty's for breakfast. I was very happy especially that I'm a big Betty's fan and also make it a habit to visit one of their cafe tea rooms on my travels.

    I had a lovely breakfast. The quality of food was unbeatable and the presentation was to its usual perfection and thoroughly enjoyed our meals in perfect surroundings. The dining experience isn't cheap but a perfect celebration treat

    A bit about Harrogate's Betty's:
    Frederick Belmont founded Betty's Cafe Tea Rooms in 1919. Harrogate was the very first branch and soon became a success and opened other Betty's Branches in York, Northallerton and Ilkley. I have visited those cafes even if my wish is for one to be opened in Leeds!. As well as the traditional Imperial Room there is The Montepellier Cafe Bar which is an informal cafe where orders are placed at the counter before sitting down.

    The cafe is very popular so be prepared to queue for a while but the experience is worth waiting for!

    Favorite Dish: For breakfast I ordered the Eggs Benedict (8.50 gbp (March 2013) accompanied with Betty's Cafe Blend (3.70 gbp (March 2013).

    My parents had the English Breakfast (10.95 gbp (March 2013) which they thoroughly enjoyed.

    Afterwards, my mother visited the cafe's shop and purchased some Yorkshire Fat Rascals (a local delicacy) which we thoroughly enjoyed later on in the day.

    The Winter Gardens: Not your usual pub

    by tim07 Updated Nov 28, 2010
    4 more images

    This is a typical Wetherspoon's pub, but what makes it different is that it's housed in the Winter Gardens building. A place that was originally built next to the Royal Baths as somewhere visitors could stroll or relax in any weather. In the 1920's people relaxed here to music played on a grand piano. In the 1930's they were entertained by the Municipal Orchestra.

    Today the place still retains much of its original architecture, particularly the stone steps that lead from the entrance to the bar area. It certainly was an enjoyable place to stop and have a drink.

    Set in the former Winter garden theatre and still retains a lot of the original architecture with grand stone steps leading from the entrance to the bar area.A modern outdoor area a very large indoor seating area make this the grandest JD Wetherspoons i have visited so far.Staff were very friendly and quick to serve even on this busy bank holiday.

    Harrogates former royal baths included the Winter Gardens,which were built so that visitors could relax and stroll in any weather,its name lives on in this Wetherspoon pub.
    During the 1920's people could relax here amoung potted palms,listening to music from a grand piano.in the 1930's the municipal orchestra played every morning throughout the year,with free admission to the patients of the baths.

    Favorite Dish: I had burger and chips which comes with a free drink of your choice and also had onion rings,very good.

    The Old Bell Tavern: Great food

    by SueWarwick Written Nov 24, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Old Bell is basically split in to two sections.
    Downstairs is a good, old fashioned pub with plenty of real ale to choose from but I went for a bottle of Deliriums Tremens Belgian beer. It also has a good selection of bar food.
    The pub area includes memorabilia from when the building was a toffee shop.
    Upstairs is the brassiere. You can order drinks from the downstairs bar or the brassiere offers wine by the bottle and glass.

    The website (see below) includes a full menu.

    Favorite Dish: I started with warm hog, black pudding and potato salad (£5.95) I'll order anything if it has black pudding! It was served with a mixed green salad in a mustard flavoured dressing and came with a basket of bread and butter

    Main course was marinated duck breast with a red wine juice, mixed vegetables and potatoes. (£13.95) There were several things on the menu I fancied but I have duck very rarely and I definitely wasn't disappointed.

    I'm not one for desert, I've never had much of a sweet tooth but I somehow managed to save a spot for a rum and raison cheesecake. This was fantastic. A really sloppy, runny rum and raison sauce on a biscuit base....the diet can start next week!

    All in all a great meal.
