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
Great value for money Lovely tea selection with lots of options Service was slow and inattentive - needed to always try and catch the waiting staffs eyes The whole place needs a good dust! Lots of surfaces covered in dust, the place could use a deep clean Lemon and courgette cake was dry and tasted of artificial lemon flavouring The scones were delicious!
Very helpful and patient staff, particularly the chap working upstairs. Wonderful atmosphere and delicious food. We will definitely be returning. Thank you!
Attention to detail wasn’t great! Food came but with no cutlery & waited nearly 10 mins to receive it. Then asked for boxes when we wanted to leave & the waitress forgot so we had to ask someone else to pretty poor service
Will definitely be coming back. The food was delicious and such a great range of different flavoured teas!
First time visiting and just loved our Full afternoon tea although felt stuffed afterwards. Service was great and helpful. Look forward to another visit
First class service, food is amazing and atmosphere relaxed would highly recommend the afternoon tea the only hard decision is which cakes to choose!!
Friendly yet professional staff and delicious food.
Great value for money. First class
Whilst the food and service are good we found the place could do with a good clean tables were very close together and the atmosphere wasn’t right for afternoon tea.
This was our second visit and it was perfect. I/we will be back again. Thank you
Excellent service. Excellent Halfafternoon Tea and Ploughmans. So impressed brought a voucher for a birthday present. We will be returning.
Enjoyed our afternoon tea on a rainy afternoon. Generous portions and pot of really hot tea. Only criticisms - only two choices of actual cake, all the others were traybakes which are not really in the spirit of an afternoon tea. Also only one sandwich filling choice each, which I found disappointing. So a sandwich, a cake and a scone each. Large portions but lacking finesse.
Fantastic welcoming place for afternoon tea. Always has such a friendly relaxed atmosphere and the food is nothing less than perfect.
Really enjoyed our time there for afternoon tea.
If previously had cake and s drink down stairs so was exspecting the same unique surroundings upstairs ! I found them cramped and drab with dead plants hanging from the ceiling . We were also seated st a table with s view of the kitchen with door perminstly open . Staff are very friendly . Also my scone was so hard I had trouble cutting it , I did mention to waiter but he offered no replacement or appolagie
Would recommend the High Tea.
Lovely food, attentive staff.
Absolutely lovely afternoon which is great value for money! The scone and cake portions were great and tasted fantastic. Friendly and quick service.
Lovely service and food. Very good gluten free options and vegan options.
Lovely food and service. Thoroughly enjoyed it
The staff were very friendly and very helpful giving us lots of advice on ways we could use our voucher to best suit us .
Value for money. Only afternoon tea I’ve had where you’ve been able to chose your choice of sandwich, scone and cake. Huge portion - had to take a doggy bag home!
If your staff are going to make the process feel rushed, don't make afternoon tea bookable so late in the day. Simples. It doesn't make for a nice, relaxing atmosphere and to be honest you could have the nicest food in the world, but if atmosphere isn't welcoming - which was the case - it's not going to be looked back on well. Either change opening times or get some customer friendly staff maybe?
Great food, lovely change to have decent portions rather than lots of small ones.
Wow we had an amazing experience it was a birthday present for my amarican daughter in law who was on holiday and she absolutely loved it as we all did, i will definately be back with other members of my family, great value for money.
