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
As usual fantastic food. Staff accommodated extra guests. Just felt the lack of staff this time...
The food we had was delicious however it was quite pricy for what we had. I love the venue, but it was very small - I took my pregnant daughter for a last treat before baby arrives and we were jammed into a corner with hardly any table space and the chairs were a tight fit.
Had a lovely afternoon celebrating my friends birthday. Food was amazing, service was fantastic. Can’t wait to visit again
Delicious afternoon tea. All of it was fresh and presented really well. Only thing I would say is tables were a little small to fit plate stacks, cups and tea pot on but didn't stop us from enjoying our experience. Definitely visit again.
Everything was lovely, from walking in to leaving. I couldn’t recommend it high enough!
Teaspoons could so with a clean! Fantastic choice of sandwiches with fresh ingredients. Great selection of delicious cakes and goodies!
This is my third visit here and my favourite. Excellent service from Tash, who was incredibly attentive and helpful. Lovely food and great value. Thank you
i enjoyed my afternoon tea time, it was busy afternoon, though. thank you so much!
As a real foodie, Biddy’s tea room ticks all the boxes for me.
We loved everything - food was excellent however for this type of meal I do think 2 sandwiches would have been enough and the scone was a normal size - with other experiences similar they are half the size - more dainty - same with jaffa cake - it was huge!! As a suggestion perhaps try it or add a ladies size meal. Good luck and definitely would recommend - service was excellent. Best wishes Dee
We had a vegan full afternoon tea which, at £14.95 pp, wasn’t brilliant value for money. A pot of tea, one sandwich, one piece of cake, and a vegan sausage roll, which I had to pay extra for as I didn’t want a lemon and blueberry scone, which was the other vegan option (was expecting a choice of either sweet or savoury). The sandwiches were fine, vegan sausage rolls nice, but the peanut butter blondie and apple cake were both terribly dry and inedible. The service was quick, the staff were fantastic., but the full afternoon tea a real disappointment. The non-vegan options looked much nicer and there seemed to be more on the stand for each person.
Very nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Went for an afternoon tea but did feel the portions were to bulk and big as I was expected more dainty sandwiches and bite size cakes.
Amazing place we found!! Very sweet and food is delicious!! Definitely coming back again!!!
Best place to go in Norwich for afternoon tea. Absolutely delicious 🥰
Took my nan here for afternoon tea for her birthday. The online booking system was very easy to use and they had plenty of availability for the day we went. We were given a lovely table, close to the cake stand and We were served promptly by very friendly staff. Our food came out quickly, well presented and was very tasty and filling. I will defin9be returning soon!!
We had a table booked for afternoon tea but it wasn't ready so we had to wait, and when we were seated it hadn't been cleaned properly, I had to wipe it with a tissue and antibacterial hand gel I had with me. The service was slow as there was only one chap waiting on the whole, very busy, floor. He was however, friendly and knowledgable, and the food was tasty and OK value for money. There are a lot of tables in a very small space, so it was very loud and felt a little too cosy. Lovely decor and music though. Overall OK, but we were there with a gift voucher and I'm not sure I'd want to do it again if I was paying for the experience
The food was amazing, very high standard and the young man who served us was excellent checked on us and made sure all was well. Slightly noisy today but people left so it did change. Love this place been a few times now.
First class food and service as usual. Would recommend a visit and I'm certain you would love it. Thanks again
Started off well but the tearoom filled up and the man serving us was run off his feet with no support, so we had to wait along time.
Myself and my friend visited your store on Saturday the 4th Jan 2020. We had booked to use a sweet tooth voucher that we received for Christmas. Upon arrival we were greeted by a very smiley lady who went out of her way to show us to our seat and explain the menu as we had explained we’d got a voucher to use. I made the waitress aware of my nut allergy when ordering my chosen cakes/scone - but unfortunately I wasn’t overly happy as wasn’t reassured that my Banana loaf had no nuts on - she wasn’t sure! Even though I had stated on the booking confirmation that I had a nut allergy and I told the waitress on arrival. Although I enjoyed my time with you at biddys, this did put a damper on my mood as I was unsure of what I was eating so did leave most of my cakes.
Cosy, beautifully decorated place with lovely staff. Had a wonderful afternoon tea which was very generous with portions and great value for money. Will definitely be back soon.
Lovely food and very friendly service
Really lovely staff, so kind and patient with good service, and a beautifully decorated space; the atmosphere was so spot on with even the small details like the menu being a fairy tale book. The food itself was as you would expect, so fine nonetheless with no problems.
Very happy to accommodate GF needs
Going to Biddy’s is always a pleasure. Delicious food and friendly service.
