Always on the family's itinerary for lunchtime in Yarmouth!

This cafe is special and lunch on the first day of my family's holiday is always here. The food is really good and there is a quite wide menu. The outdoor seating is under a clear roof which is hung all over with the most beautiful baskets, full of begonias - quite a sight in themselves! If you... read more

We happened upon Merrivale by accident on a wander in Great Yarmouth today. The sign for Cream Teas lured us in, and after eating one, I'm very glad it did. Delicious fruit scone, butter, jam and clotted cream, plus a lovely pot of tea. Very nice and would recommend to anyone visiting.

Visited the tea rooms today. Served by a lovely polite young man. We had a lovely cream tea. It consisted of a choice of plain or fruit scone, a pot of jam and clotted cream. I had a latte. My husband had a chocolate coated Viennese whirl and latte. We could either sit in or outside. We chose outside. We... More

We expected to have afternoon tea here, but we were told they didn't serve that here, so we went for a couple of cakes and cream tea between us. The scone was spot on but the others had a odd taste to it. Very friendly staff and atmosphere was nice, maybe will order the savoury food next time.

The service here was the best we have ever experienced. the staff went above and beyond what we expected, they were very friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The staff had the time to even make our son feel special and had him laughing. The apple pie and clotted cream was truly scrumptious. The food here really... More

Brilliant GF menu including pies, pasties and a ploughmans - in fact a very large proportion of the items on the menu could be ordered GF. 4 different delicious GF cakes to choose from. Also nice environment, friendly and helpful staff and reasonable prices. Went back several times during our holiday!

What a lovely find in a 'kiss me quick hat' environment. Beautiful display of planting and good selection of choices on the menu. You can stop for breakfast, tea and cakes, lunch or early tea. You can even buy a dish of sausages and gravy for your dog. Next to the 1d museum which gives you the chance to step... More
