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
My sister and i were seated on what i thought was a tiny table. By the time 2 afternoon teas. 2 teapots and 2 cup and saucers were put down with the menus, salt and pepper there was barely any room to eat! I personally would have liked more room instead of trying to manoeuvre plates etc around. We also had to wait quite a while to be served. The food was delicious, but i would have preferred to have a selection of smaller bite sized cakes instead of 1 great big slice of cake.
Very friendly and quick service. Afternoon tea was delicious
Original table was rather small but we were moved with no problem. Our server was very helpful and knowledgeable and the whole experience was great!
Absolutely love afternoon tea here xx
Always enjoy afternoon tea at Biddys, fresh sandwiches and an amazing choice of cakes and scones. Also had vegan options for my friend. Fab friendly staff.
Amazing afternoon tea as always,just right for a special occasion.the only downside is the portion for the millionaires shortcake has shrunk over the years,but the price has not.no matter however,because the cakes are still awesome & the selection of different tea's are fantastic.
We really enjoyed our afternoon tea! However on being sent up stairs we arrived to a dirty table which wasn’t the best welcome.
Very much enjoyed the full afternoon tea, nice treat for my Mum. Managed to eat the sandwiches and scone but had to take the cake home as too full. All very nice
Brilliant and thank you very much
Great Food and Service
Beautiful setting and exceptional food!
The perfect afternoon tea!
Lovely ford. Would like to be gable to have a selection of sandwiches.
Food was delicious but the service was extremely slow. We hadn’t had any lunch as we were so looking forward to our afternoon tea (which was a gift from one of our wedding guests) and because we had to wait so long for our food we had to go through our shopping bags to try and find something that we could discreetly eat whilst waiting.
Service & food quality as excellent as ever. Lovely experience thank you.
An other wonderful experience. Everyone very welcoming food fantastic.
Food was superb couldn’t eat it all brought my cake home
Fantastic afternoon tea, only criticism is very hot upstairs on a hot day. No air circulating- however not sure this could be improved.
Lovely place great food
We had to wait 25 minutes for our table to be ready then another 15 or so before our order was taken. Our tea was served way before we received our food order. Afternoon tea consists of choosing only one sandwich filling, this was made fresh but had started to go dry when it arrived. We then had to choose a scone and one cake, very limited. I would rather pay double at another venue in the city centre and be served with a selection of sandwiches and a choice of small cakes and savouries. Definite lack of any atmosphere, most disappointing. Sadly I will neither recommend nor revisit.
Had a delicious afternoon tea, enjoyed all of the food. Service was quick and everyone was super friendly and helpful!
Lovely afternoon. All we kept saying was um um. One of the best cream teas we have had. Would definitely come back again.
Always enjoy Biddys because unlike other afternoon teas you get to choose your own cake and everything is full size! Great value for money too.
Never been here before, was made welcome and extremely helpful.
The food is absolutely phenomenal and exceptionally good value for money. I couldn't recommend their afternoon tea enough. The service was also lovely. The gentleman who served us was absolutely lovely, cracking jokes and chatting to our little girl who we brought along and the lady (wears glasses) who took the payment from us was also absolutely lovely. The waitresses downstairs did look like they wanted to be anywhere else but there. Other than that, I 100% recommend them and will definitely be going back.
