Founded by Swiss baker Frederick Belmont in 1919 with the opening of Bettys Cafe Tea Rooms in Harrogate, the Bettys name is now world-famous and synonymous with delicious Swiss treats and Yorkshire warmth and hospitality. After purchasing family-run tea and coffee merchant, Taylors of Harrogate, a fellow devotee of the pursuit of extraordinary flavour and traditional family values, Bettys & Taylors secured their transformation from Harrogate institution to household name. The Story of Bettys & Taylors: A Centenary Celebration is a compelling, illustrated history that sets the story of the business against the social history of the times. Written with the same brilliant, witty voice as Annie Gray's book on Queen Victoria, this exhaustively researched history presents Bettys' fascinating one-hundred year journey within the wider context of Yorkshire and the Great British institutions of the tearoom and afternoon tea. Fully illustrated with historical examples of the Bettys Tea Rooms and Bettys & Taylors products, present and past staff and fond readers of family and Yorkshire history, this illustrated hardback is a true reflection of the famous brand it represents.
