Biddy’s Tea Rooms Revisited

Tea and a rose cupcake at Biddy’s in Norwich

Those of you that have been with me for a while may well remember that I visited Biddy’s Tea Room in Norwich all the way back in 2011. Since then, I’ve been back every few months, but I’ve not reviewed it again, even there is now a lovely downstairs area to enjoy.

When I first blogged about the eatery, the downstairs was an (extremely tempting) interiors shop, but this has been added to Biddy’s too, filled with second hand-sofas, trunks for tables and a glass cabinet filled with beautiful cakes of all manner of flavours. It’s really meant for takeaway treats, I think, but it’s great if you fancy a quick sit down while you’re shopping – upstairs the service is a little slower with table service, so you can make lunch last all afternoon.

As you can see, I opted for a pot of tea and rose cupcake, which was deliciously moist, while the flavour was delicate and not overwhelming. It was the perfect way to spend a lunch break on a busy working day. It felt decadent, but not heavy, so I didn’t want to have a nap when I returned to my desk.

It was also fair reasonably priced. The treat cost me less than £5, which I do believe is a bargain. However, even if it had gone over a fiver, I could have got a stamp on my loyalty card, so I could earn a free tea and cake in future. It’s not a bad deal all in all.

If you have somewhere that you’d like to recommend, let me know with a comment or a tweet.


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.
