Called for Sunday breakfast. Had to send back 2 cups as were dirty. Ordered breakfast baps. Fillings quite tasty, but bread rolls cheap and dry. How about warm baguettes?

We were passing Swaffham and Pam decided that a coffee was in order. We tried to park by the Market cross but it was full so we found a free car park only 4 minutes walk from the centre. Looking round we came to the Market Cross Restraunt and as it looked pretty and inviting, we went in. The welcome... More

Lovely little place in the centre of Swaffham but no Roast Lunches left when we turned up at just before 2pm. It was quite busy so could take it either that they had sold out because it was so good and had been very busy or had not made enough to cater - we will never know! Having to choose... More

We were just driving through Swaffham when we decided to have something to eat. We parked in the centre of town and decided to eat in the Market Cross because it was near where we parked. Luckily for us! I had the Linguine which was as good as I had in Venice - and that was superb, fresh pasta, lots... More

Went for lunch today, had sandwiches which were fine, nothing special. Service was okay but waitress a little frosty, not much of a sense of humour. Probably would not return.

Went here for soup on a cold December day, not great, the atmosphere wasn't very nice or welcoming and the service was unfriendly and slow, the soup of the day was awful, a tin of tomato soup at home would have been much nicer! I wouldn't go back.

Visited here in the first summer this restaurant was open so as we were in Norfolk we thought we'd make another visit. The decor is lovely with a nice outside seating area. The cream tea is delicious, mouth watering scones with lovely clotted cream and jam. A lovely place to go for a snack, lunch, evening meal or just a... More

We went to this cafe in the morning when we stayed in nearby Beachamwell. After wandering around Swaffham looking for a place we can have our breakfast in, we spotted this place. It is probably the most inviting cafe in Swaffham, as other places look a little bit too 'local'. We enjoyed our coffee and blt. It's definitely good for... More

As always a friendly place to eat, with well presented tasty food. Although unusually we had to ask the waiter to exchange our cups for ones that did not have tea stain on. Always a treat to eat here. We were lucky enough to be blessed with sunshine so we could sit outside.
