Harden's survey result
“Still the most civilised place on Earth” – these archetypal tea rooms have been a “Yorkshire institution” for a century now, founded as they were in 1919. There’s “no point wasting calories elsewhere” when here you can enjoy “afternoon tea, exactly as it should be”: “surrounded by starched white tablecloths and napkins, plus silver teapots, with a great selection of sandwiches (extra if you want them!) and cakes, plus unlimited tea or coffee served in grand surroundings by lovely staff”. “Every town should have one. Why don’t they?”
“The most civilised hour or two you’ll ever spend” could well be at this archetypal and epic English team room “institution” – “a legend that always lives up to its reputation”, with “exquisite” cakes, teas and light bites that are “a fabulous treat” (“can be pricier than most, but not to be missed”). It’s “always busy”, though, and “the queues are not so good”.
“Proper cakes, proper teas, silver service” and “outstanding Yorkshire hospitality” combine to make this legendary spot “the quintessential English tearoom that never fails to please”; indeed, “once you have got through the vast queues” it’s “the most civilised place you’ll ever spend an afternoon”.
“You can’t go to Yorkshire without eating at Betty’s!”; for “the definition of an afternoon tea”, and “classic old-world charm”, head to these legendary tearooms – everything is “simply perfect”. If there’s a caveat, it’s that you “can expect to queue most days”, but it’s “worth the wait”.
