"Wonderful surroundings, great service, brilliant food. A real touch of luxury at an affordable price. Highly recommended. Worth going to York just to experience this level of sophistication." ★★★★★ (Tripadvisor Reviewer)

"Our family visited for afternoon tea to celebrate my birthday, and what a choice! The location inside the clean, fully refurbished railway carriage, the quality of the tableware, the food and the exceptional service made this a must delightful experience. We've had afternoon tea at the celebrated Betty's in York, but believe me - this one is markedly better. The 2 ladies serving and catering for our needs are worthy of special mention, and should be congratulated for their customer focus and professionalism." ★★★★★ (Tripadvisor Reviewer)
