We are humbly surprised at how busy Biddy's can be at peak times. We are a small, family run independent. If a bustling city cafe will be likely to offend, we suggest coming off peak or if you need a larger space we are happy to advise on local eateries.
Regretfully we cannot take bookings over the phone. Bookings need to be secured with a card to protect us from no shows and empty tables and this must be done using a PCI compliant system.
Our kitchen contains the following allergens
