We got an over cooked scone served cold without any cream, my cup was chipped and the furniture was dirty. All in all, I would avoid again

Tried the Rocket House Cafe after a long walk that morning, and just wanted a sandwich for our lunch. Mmm. No can do - you have to have chips, salad et al, and all that comes at a price. We went downstairs, out the ground floor doorway, and straight over to their competition where we had a great sarnie !

I have never had a bad meal here (60 Plus visits since it opened) but our meal on saturday night was perfect even if slow roasted shredded pork was not on the menu!. The evening food is by far the best along the coast, I wish they were open all year round on saturday night, looking forward to December Jazz... More

We ate here twice this week, once on Tuesday and again on Friday. Both times the food was excellent. For a busy place the service was efficient and speedy and the food was well worth waiting for. Even on the warmest day, beware sitting outside after 1.00pm as it can get quite chilly in the shade.

It was bank holiday Sunday and really busy. Yet despite that the food was good, service was quick, and they made us feel welcome. Its one of our favourite places to eat in Cromer- a relaxed atmosphere and good food and drink.

We didn't know that they closed at 5pm until we arrived at 4.50pm and desperate for a cup of tea and sandwich they didn't want to know. Considering that the RNLI relies on it's support from the general public we were very surprised that we were turned away.

If you are in the area, this cafe is perfectly situated for excellent food and an amazing view across the coast and across to the pier in Cromer.

The Rocket house has long been a favourite to visit for coffee and lunch. However recent months have shown a less exciting choice of menu which is disappointing due to a previous wider selection available. We had an excellent stew there this weekend but it was served, as most things, with a special bread instead of vegetable which would have... More
