Eating & drinking

Bettys Café Tea Rooms and Shop

A day out at RHS Garden Harlow Carr would not be complete without taking a break at Yorkshire’s well-known Bettys Café Tea Rooms and Shop. Indulge yourself in one (or two!) delicious treats and a well-earned cup of tea.

Information for visitors:

  • At busy times, please be mindful of the needs of others by making space and, if you are able to, consider wearing a face covering when not seated

We offer all the traditional Bettys treats – fabulous food, mouth-watering, hand-made cakes, the best teas and coffees, made to the highest standards. Enjoy a relaxed meal in the Café, or if you're short on time then the elegant coffee lounge is the perfect choice.

The shop has tempting breads, cakes and chocolates, and there's even the chance to buy a picnic from Bettys Tea House in the garden in summer.

Bettys Café Tea Rooms and Shop enjoys an elevated position overlooking the beautiful grounds of RHS Garden Harlow Carr. From your table you can admire the panoramic view while enjoying your meal.
