The shop at Bettys Café Tea Rooms in the centre of Ilkley is the second of the brand to be updated.

All six Bettys Café Tea Room branches in Yorkshire will be undergoing improvements. The most recent completed redesign was that of Bettys Café Tea Rooms in St Helen’s Square, York.

The Ilkley work used sustainably-sourced oak, cast bronze fittings and marble counter tops, in a style based on the Arts & Crafts movement, complementing the design of the café.

There is now a tasting area to allow customers to sample Bettys Speciality Tea and Coffee, and a new chocolate counter offering a selection of 20 varieties of handcrafted chocolates. The shop will now also offer a wedding and celebration cake consultation service.

Samantha Lawton, manager at Bettys Ilkley, said: “We are thrilled with the new-look shop.

“We have been careful to keep the ‘Bettys feeling’ that we’re known and loved for, and our lighter and brighter shop area offers a much more engaging shopping experience for customers, with more room for browsing, sampling and demonstration of our craft skills.”
