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
The service on the night was so lovely, nothing was too much trouble and the food selection was great. I myself had a vegan dietary requirement and having had a number of vegan tea services in Norwich I think Biddys went above and beyond; providing a vegan cheese board etc. The offer of paper cartons and bags to take anything we had not managed to finish was a great touch too.
Lovely place, friendly staff and a lovely afternoon tea!
Excellent in every way, thank you so much - maybe one suggestion would be to have tables were you could put your legs underneath, the one we had yesterday I had to sit with my legs to the side but otherwise loved it
Great place, lovely food ,super cake ,brilliant
Loved it xx
Food was delicious and with rather generous portions. Beautiful place with a lovely atmosphere. Great value for money on the full afternoon tea. Would definitely recommend
This was our second time at Biddy’s tea room. We loved it so much the first time we knew that we had to come back! Thanks for a great afternoon tea!
Lovely afternoon tea! Enjoyed every bit of it.
Upstairs area for afternoon tea wasn't as nice as the downstairs area and the vakes were dry.
The table reserved for us was already occupied. We were served drinks well in advance of the afternoon tea ordered and no top up was offered. We were given one set of cutlery to eat the sandwich, salad garnish, the scone and the cake. We were served the wrong scone and had to attract the attention of the person washing up in the kitchen to get this replaced. She did however do this willingly. The cakes were not to our liking and as only one choice per course is offered this meant a whole part of the meal ruined. The bin in the toilet used for both paper towels and sanitary ware was full to overflowing. Not a pleasant experience. We did complain on leaving the restaurant and a 10% reduuction was given. We will not be returning.
Very pleased overall, but contacting Biddys was very impersonal as we couldn't speak to anyone except via booking form or Anglophone.
Amazing atmosphere and delicious food. My go to place for afternoon tea in Norwich!
We had a lovely evening. Thank you
Friendly staff, delicious food in a cosy and unique setting. Had a lovely time for my friend's birthday. Have already recommended to friends and would come again. Thank you!
Fabulous afternoon tea, all the better that we could take our left overs with us!! Service was brilliant, staff very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend!!
Delicious food and good portions, however I informed the staff that it was my birthday but no discount or complimentary product was offered which I found quite dissapointing. Also the waitress was not very attentive and we had to wait for a long time to get her attention and order another drink.
The Cakes were very dry and service was very slow. We had to ask to place our order, wait for our table, and wait to pay
Table a bit small for two afternoon teas and other tables were available. Tea menus on the tables could do with renewing. Lovely booklet with history and other choices was very nice to read though.
Very quirky tea room. Good choice of food and teas.
We found the room slightly chilly during our visit.
Best place I’ve been for afternoon tea, I think it’s brilliant .
We had a nice birthday Tea! They made the occasion extra special!
All the staff were very nice and very helpful the afternoon tea was amazing as always can’t fault it will be back again soon 😊
Very very slow service and had to ask for cream for scones. That said as usual food was amazing and the candle for my birthday was a lovely touch and much appreciated.
