“The famous Bettys never fails to impress” – with its “lovely, old-fashioned atmosphere”, “terrific” service and food (spanning a “heavenly” afternoon tea and equally highly rated breakfast), this celebrated Yorkshire tearoom is simply “perfection”“no mystery why there’s always a queue”. (The only gripe this year – “stewed tea… why can’t they use a removable infuser? #firstworldproblems.”)

This “bright and welcoming” branch of the legendary Yorkshire tearoom empire, which has just celebrated its centenary, has a real sense of style. Breakfast is almost as popular as afternoon tea, and “to have their full English with Swiss rosti (a nod to Swiss founder Frederick Belmont) is a very special treat”.

For “a traditional afternoon tea in a venue with style” (plus “great breakfasts” and “superb” rostis) this much-loved, often oversubscribed institution is “a must if you are in Ilkley”“long may it stay”. “Compared to Harrogate or York, the parking is much better and queues less long”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
