Bettys Tea RoomsPosted: July 23, 2013
Established in 1919, Betty’s Tearoom is a bit of a Yorkshire landmark. For nearly a hundred years it has upheld the English tearoom traditions of elegance and manners amongst tea and buttered scones.
Caroline had meetings to attend to in Northallerton and so I tagged along so I could visit a couple of tearooms (I managed to have Croque Madame again for my lunch at 1881 as well as having a leisurely tea at Bettys).
It would have been lovely to have have taken in afternoon tea in such pleasant surroundings but my Croque Madame lunch was still lingering on my lips, so I settled for a Fat Rascal instead; a kind of large fruit scone, or rock cake, with a couple of cherries and almonds arranged on top. Served warm with lashings of butter to melt into the crumbs. Yum.
