Nostalgia and cake at Biddy’s Tea Rooms

How pretty is my tea at Biddy’s?!

You should have realised by now that I love cake and I love anything retro – which is why I was obliged to visit Biddy’s Tea Room in Norwich last week.

Located above what used to be Perfect Pad in Lower Goat Lane, stepping into Biddy’s is like stepping into a a wartime sitting room.

It’s filled with faded armchairs, wooden tables and cake stands. A gramophone plays retro tunes in the corner and the menus are hidden away inside book covers. What more could I want?

Oh yes, the tea! You get a beautiful pot, accompanied by pretty little china cups, saucers and a jug of milk.

They have a huge selection of cakes to choose from too, including cupcakes, fruit cakes and chocolate cake, all of which are handmade and beautifully moist. I opted for the apple crumble cake, and it was so good, I could happily eat it for every meal!

My fellow lady what lunches tried Biddy’s afternoon tea, which comes with a choice of sandwiches, crisps, tea and cake for £6.50 – it’s actually too much for one person to eat alone, so it’s great value.

I guess my favourite thing about it is the atmosphere though. It’s so cosy and welcoming and the staff couldn’t be more friendly. I can’t recommend it highly enough – you should definitely visit!

Hi, I'm Lucy. I've lived in Norfolk since 2001 and in that time I've grown to love this fine county. From the city of Norwich, to the countryside villages and sweeping coastline, there's so much to explore and hope to share my experiences with you here.
