Great Cafe/Restaraunt.

Nice home cooked food, probably the best in North Walsham. They even have wine and beer. Get there early as they get busy. Well worth trying.

I have been an occasional visitor to this restaurant for many years probably going once or twice per year. Recently I was in North Walsham and thought I would pop into the Cockerel for lunch. it appears to have had a change of ownership or management. The extensive breakfast menu including an all day brunch had disappeared. The various choices... More

Hi, thank you for your review, I'm sorry you felt we were only average even though you enjoyed your meal and found our team helpful. We haven't changed hands, ownership or management, it's still my wife Claire & I here, we celebrated 8 years in April. There seems to be some confusion, we do still have an extensive breakfast menu,... More

Love visiting The Cockerel. It's always a relaxing experience, with attentive staff and gorgeous food - mushrooms on toast is always hard to resist! Fab to sit outside in the sunny courtyard and wile away a couple of hours :-)

The Cockerel does theme evenings on a regular basis, the latest one was A Taste Of Italy which we decided to go to. It was a really good evening, very friendly staff and great food, the chicken and the starter were delicious as we're the deserts. Coffee in the week in the garden is great too and the lunch menu...

A group of us came out for a Ghost around North Walsham followed by Paella at the Cockerel. When meeting the cooking which was being done alfresco gave off a smell which made my mouth water. A wonderful meal that having teased us during cooking lived up to the amazing smell.

We were driving through the area on our way to Suffolk and turned off the main road into North Walsham in search of a lunch stop. The Cockerel was the first place we saw after parking the car - what a lucky find! The food was good, service was friendly & efficient, and prices were reasonable. If we're ever in... More

Called in for breakfast on a very hot day. Husband had a full english which he said was really good. I was too warm to eat hot food so they very kindly made me a bowl of greek yogurt and strawberries. Lovely place, lovely people and an amazing menu, especially if you are vegetarian.

After a trip around town we asked a passerby for a recommendation for lunch and this place was brilliant. The food was lovely and imaginatively presented. There is a pretty outside space to sit and the lady who served us was charming.
