Bettys tearoom in York

A few weeks ago we made the trip up North to York for a friends wedding and had the most lovely weekend, so I thought I'd share a few pictures, especially from our little jaunt to Bettys tearooms. 
If you haven't been, York is such a beautiful city, with the perfect mix of quaint buildings, grand architecture and of course the lovely river. 

No trip to the North East would be complete without a trip to Bettys tearooms, though the preference is usually to go for Afternoon tea, I'm trying to eat really well in the run up to summer, so opted for the first time for something savoury.
I did eye up these lovely looking macaroons on the way in though...

I opted for the heirloom tomato and goats cheese salad while Mr Vatkinary had sandwiches and chips- he's not watching the carbs!
I have to say when the food came, I felt I had definitely made the right choice, the plate was piled high with all manner of colour and shaped tomatoes, olives, huge chunks of goats cheese, sweet pickled red onion, mixed leaves and micro herbs. 

Now the pictures aren't the best because after queuing on the very steep stairs for a table, when one was available there was no room to be selective and we had to take the one we were offered which was not by a window. This meant sadly no natural light for photos, which in all honesty was probably a good thing as it meant I just snapped these few quickly on my iPhone and then focused on enjoying the food!

I'll be back soon with another recipe, but also have eaten out a lot recently and have quite a few more eating out posts and some beauty ones to share with you, posting has been a bit scarce as we've been moving house so life's been rather hectic but things are hopefully all settling down now. As an aside, do you prefer the eating out posts or would you prefer more recipe ones? 


  1. I never knew they did savory food there. We were going to go when we were in Harrogate but the queue was soooo long! Want that salad now!
