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

Four of the 6 items we wanted had run out, we had to ask for cutlery, I was given the wrong cake and my husbands cake tasted awful. Not impressed considering there is also limited service at the moment as restaurant is only 50% capacity, would assume you would definitely get full menu choice and attentive waiting staff.

Lovely afternoon tea. Staff friendly and helpful. Food lovely and fresh. My only suggestion would be the option to have more than one choice of sandwich. I appreciate that they are made to order and the choice is good but for the price it would be nice to have at least two sandwich fillings rather than having to limit to just one but other than that a lovely experience.

I’d like to thank everyone at Biddy’s Norwich for their professional service during COVID-19. The service was incredible, food amazing, cakes were divine and the social distancing element was fantastic. I could not fault them. The waiter that served us with a slight accent was fabulous and made my best friends birthday so special, even gave her a candle. The vegan options were great and so much to choose from. Thank you so so much Biddy’s!!

Great, friendly service, felt very safe and looked after which is what we wanted having spent the last few months shielding. Food and drink was lovely, cakes and scones were particularly delicious.

Good service, didn’t know what was dairy free apart from the vegan selection. The vegan selection was very good though so wasn’t much of a problem. Ate on the eat out to help out. Would go back

We were waiting a long time from being seated before anyone came to see us but it was very busy. After ordering our halfternoon tea arrived within a reasonable time. The sandwiches were good although the choice for vegan sandwiches was limited to two fillings. The scones were lovely, lavender and Vegan blueberry. Staff couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. We had a lovely time and we will recommend and return.

It was simply scrumptious. The only disappointment was that we were served with a ooen and used jam pot!

Booked for afternoon tea for three for my mums birthday. The team made such an effort to celebrate with us. By decorating with banners and adding a candle to her cake. Truly wonderful experience

Once again got the corner table. I really don't like that table. You should get rid of it.

It was the perfect place to celebrate a birthday treat, the staff were attentive and polite to us at all times, although they did get a lot of our orders muddled they swiftly sorted it out. I think people should be made aware that they can only serve afternoon tea upstairs or at least make it clearer. A lovely place with exceptional food, will certainly be returning in the future.
