In 1936 Bettys' founder Frederick Belmont, commissioned the Queen Mary’s designers and craftsmen to turn a dilapidated furniture store into his most sophisticated branch yet; an elegant café in the land-locked location of St Helen’s Square. Today, visitors are surrounded by vast curved windows, elegant wood panelling and ornate mirrors, giving the impression of being aboard a luxury liner.

The art deco elegance of the Queen Mary is particularly evident in the first floor Belmont Room and is inspired by one of the cruise liner’s state rooms. A few years after Bettys opened its doors in York, war broke out and the basement 'Bettys bar' in particular became a favourite haunt of thousands of airmen stationed around York. ‘Bettys Mirror’, on which many of them engraved their signatures with a diamond pen, remains on display today as a fitting tribute to their bravery.
