Excellent service from all the staff, kind, friendly and accommodating as I had my dog with me. All the staff made a fuss of him. Wonderful cakes as well

Have visited and enjoyed lunches before but this was our first afternoon tea here. It will also be the last. By the very nature of it, it's likely be for a special occasion but we waited 40 minutes for one sandwich, one huge slice of very nice cake and the most disappointing scone we've ever tasted. The scone came with a small jar of raspberry jam (I asked if there was strawberry instead but was told that's all they do) and an equally small jar of cream. We then had to ask again for our tea and coffee, which could have come whilst we were waiting for our food. There was no suggestion of a top up of the mug of coffee (which was just a basic coffee as there are no choices available). This really doesn't constitute afternoon tea. Had the sullen assistant shown any interest in us at any time we might have felt better, but although we were greeted by a lovely lady, unfortunately we didn't get served by her. The waitress sent to take our order could barely be bothered to ask what we wanted. She eventually had to ask us again what drinks we'd ordered and at no point were we spoken to again to see if everything was OK. It was all so very disappointing after we'd looked forward to the experience so much as it was given as a treat for a celebration. I've given 1 star for recommending to a friend and for service but that's only because I was unable to give none on this system. I'll have tea and cake here again, but wouldn't recommend afternoon tea unless changes are made.

Me and my friend went for afternoon tea and asked if we could share one between us because we can't eat a full one to ourselves. We had done this before without a problem. When we asked to do this the lady who served us said "I can't stop you" coldly. This made us feel unwelcome. When we went to pay we were served by another member of staff who tried to charge us for an afternoon tea for two as that was what was left on the computer. Can't help but feel like the first lady wanted to charge us per person rather than by the amount of food we had ordered.

Fantastic afternoon tea! The sandwiches and scones were incredible, scone was even still warm! Definitely value to money and would definitely return. Only small downside, service was slightly slow upon arrival as our table wasn’t ready - appreciate that due to Covid you were running on less staff potentially however there wasn’t many people at tables when we arrived. All in all incredible and WILL be returning!!!

As a regular customer of both Biddys I was so disappointed with our Afternoon Tea yesterday in Aylsham The young staff had absolutely no clue about what was available and what we for was nothing like what was served to us ( after a 53 minute wait - not acceptable for a simple sandwich and scone and cake ) the bread was dry, and falling apart at the crust. I asked for simple white bread and ham as it was for a child with a sausage roll. The young girl cane to the table 3 times to check what he wanted and finally brought out an adult afternoon tea - with the dry bread and ham. The adult afternoon teas werent much better - the bread was brown not granary - not an issue but with such a small menu the staff really do need to be trained better. The ham sandwich came with the largest lump of lettuce root which was 100% visible and it was not ham mustard and tomato more like bagged sour lettuce and ham. Again nothing like whats offered on the menu. The lettuce root therefore the entire sandwich was inedible. When we asked to see the manager we were told “its her First day she doesnt know what shes doing “ and the supervisor also had no idea. So disappointing and expensive at £45 Really hope these staff receive proper training as it really was chaos. Biddys is one of my favourites but I wont be in a hurry to recommend it now - such a shame Lisa Cubitt

Had a lovely time, the reason for the low score on service was because we got there for our 2pm booking, the waitress came and gave us our menus and said she would be back In 5 minutes to take our order, almost half an hour later we had to go to the counter to ask for someone to come to take our order, which was not good, I accept the shop was fairly busy but we were forgotten about. Otherwise we had a very nice afternoon tea.
