About Biddy's Tea Room Norwich

Biddy's is a traditional Tea Room in the heart of Norwich's bustling Lanes serving traditional cakes and loose leaf tea in a eclectic Victorian setting. We specialise in a 'create your own' afternoon tea made using the days freshly baked scones and homemade cakes from our Aylsham bakery.

We pride ourselves for our large selection of loose leaf tea, offering over 50 possible blends and even an option to mix your own!

Our Tearoom is split into a cakery and lounge downstairs for more relaxed seating to enjoy lighter options, served at the counter to either eat in or takeaway. Our upstairs floor is dedicated to our Tea Room, opened in 2011 serving our hearty lunches and speciality afternoon teas, served by a waitress.

We aren't the world's largest space, and as such cannot offer a grand afternoon affair. However if good service, homemade food, proper tea in a cozy and quirky setting are what you are after, then you have come to the right place. Welcome to Biddy's

Team are always friendly and welcoming. Will do what they can to help where needed. Gorgeous homemade food. Value for money. Generous portions. Great range to choose from. The best afternoon tea (and brownies), by far! Thank you for a lovely experience.

Fantastic value for money, friendly staff and delicious food. I thought I had paid for my afternoon tea prior to coming to the cafe as my card information was requested when booking. Caused some confusion and judging by the waitresses response I am not the first person to assume this. Was also a shame as I had intended to treat my companion (who always insists on paying her share).

My favourite tearoom ever. Always have to go to Biddys whenever I’m in Norwich. Yesturday had the Ferrero rocher millionaires shortbread, omg the best cake I’ve ever had (and I’ve eaten a lot of cake in my 43 years lol). Staff are always lovely and the tearoom has just suck a cozy fee to it.

We had a great time. The staff were lovely. I booked it for a friends birthday and when we got to the table they had gone to the effort of putting banners on the table, a candle on her cake and a happy birthday sign without even being asked to do so. Really lovely touch. Would definitely recommend and come again, it was my first time visiting and I will return again! The food and drinks were amazing too!!

But disappointed as only savoury on offer was a scone even though there was sausage rolls being sold downstairs Our waitress got confused with our order & we ended up paying more than we wanted & still not sure why? If u like cakes though, it’s the place to go

Great atmosphere and lovely service. The food as always was delicious, my only grumble is my cinnamon bun was slightly over cooked on the last visit but I know this isn’t common place, so I would always recommend Biddy’s to others

Had an absolutely amazing time at Biddy's Tea Room, was booked as a birthday treat and treat it was. As a vegan with a gluten intolerance was impressed to not only be catered for but blown away by the high quality of the food on offer. The cake was the best I have ever had and to top it off the staff were a delight, nothing was to much trouble. Would highly recommend

Wonderful attentive service and the food was outstanding. The portions were so big that we had to bring some of it home in a doggy bag! Well done Biddy’s for maintaining such high standards during these very challenging times. Afternoon tea highly recommended.

First time that we have been out since Covid started. We felt reassured that the staff and company had put robust covid measures in place. If anything the social distancing of the people and tables made the afternoon tea feel more intimate - lovely. The staff were amazingly friendly, polite and professional and the food was excellent both in presentation, taste, and amount.
