We popped into the café for a drink a cake and were really impressed. The hot chocolate was actually hot an achievement so may find impossible and my gluten free chocolate cake was lovely. My wife was very pleased with the bread pudding and insisted we return the following day to just check how good it was again. We weren't... More

The Old Rock Shop Bistro combines everything I could wish for in an eating establishment: excellent food, attentive service and a venue for meeting people and catching up on the papers. The fact that I, in common with many, have been frequenting the bistro for years, speaks for itself. Not only is it a popular place to eat by day,... More

Excellent bacon and eggs & first class coffee with a refill for £1. Morning papers. Cakes looked very tempting. Very clean with friendly service. Would definitely recommend.

Good, honest food at reasonable prices. Nothing flashy, but homely meals that don't break the bank served in a no nonsense decor cafe. Loved the homemade coleslaw with my jacket potato. My son's hot chocolate was amazing! I like good coffee and this passed the test. Nice touch to see the jukebox in the corner. Friendly and efficient staff. I... More

We went here twice over the course of our weekend visit to Cromer and were impressed by the friendly but unobtrusive service and the delicious home made gluten free cakes for my husband, who is wheat intolerant. It was a shame, perhaps, that there was no gluten free bread available, because I had a most delicious crab sandwich which my... More

Have stayed in Cromer 3 times in the last 5 years and having stumbled across this cafe the first time, have gone back every time since. We have only had lunch (sandwiches etc) each time, but each time the food and staff have been really good. The Cromer crab and sausage sandwiches and sausage rolls being particularly delicious; and reasonably... More

Come here for food at anytime of the day and you will not be disappointed. However the evening food is simply unpretentious and delicious at a not unreasonable price. The only gripe is the excessive charge for a bottle of wine--in some instances,dearer than the food itself !

Thank you for such a kind review. Great to see that you have enjoyed what we do at various different times of day. You are correct about the wine being more expensive than the food though we feel this has more to do with the food being very well priced than the wine being expensive. All of our wines are... More
