Just made our annual trip to the fabulous Merrivale tea rooms. This is the highlight of my Dads holiday. Chris as always makes us welcome and is an excellent host. Last year there were no custard slices left when we arrived and my Dads visit wasn't quite as enjoyable. Chris asked Dad to call in advance this year and the... More

This is a great tea room tagged onto the side of the model village, which itself is quite fun. The service is always great, the cream teas always perfect and it is always the first place we go to when we arrive in Yarmouth. Well worth popping in for a cuppa and a cream cake.

What a lovely little place! Having arrived in Yarmouth quite early with our dog we were unsure where to go to get a coffee, well we found this place was open, allowed dogs and even had a water bowl for doggies to have a drink. We sat at one of the little outside tables so our dog had some shade.... More

After been to the Model village, and at the exit you go straight through to the Tea rooms, they have plenty to offer in food and drinks, you can sit inside or outside, with some views of the Model village. You can access the tea rooms from outside without having to go into the Model village, worth a visit and... More
