Just found out that this branch of Betty‘s is closing. So sad as I have long memories of Taylor’s as it was then known, since the late 1970s. I much preferred this quirky tea room to the more formal branches in York and Harrogate. Queues up the stairs and the dilemma of whether to sit in the smoking section! Intimidating waitresses kept the customer polite. Earl Grey and cinnamon toast shared with family and friends. Sitting reading the Yorkshire Post on long wooden poles. Was always expensive, slightly preposterous, but a wonderful experience.
