Tables of 1-3 are reserved for 1.5 hours. Tables of 4 or more for 2 hours. Our largest table is for 6. Larger tables are advised to book out of hours using the Parties tab 


We are a modest space and will only be booking out half the tearoom due to Covid-19


Please remember to count all those that need to be seated (even if not eating and inform us of extra children (up to 2 per booking) Due to space constraints we will not be able to add highchairs unless pre informed


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.  


Please inform us via bookings@biddystearoom.com or calling your local store with any dietary requirements you might have or pop them in the box when booking. We do our best to accommodate all with enough notice but are running a limited menu since Covid. 


Our kitchen contains the following allergens

Cereals containing gluten







Sulphur dioxide and sulphites Tree nuts


We will have a limited number of tables per day for those wishing to redeem a voucher. Due to Covid-19 this is capped at 25% of our daily bookings until we are back at regular capacity. You must book the Voucher Afternoon Tea to redeem a voucher. Please note our vouchers do not expire, just keep them safe if we have no voucher spaces left on certain days and we will see you as business goes back to normal.
