The falafel wrap was very tasty and came with a lovely shredded salad and chips and could not eat anything else all day, very good value, service good, dies stop serving food at 3.00 do make sure you get there early ! Looks over the sea so get a window seat/porthole !

Went twice in one day, had coffee and toasted tea cake then returned for lunch and had lovely crab sandwich. Staff are very friendly and work hard as it gets very busy. Would go again next time we are in Cromer.

Had a lovely lunch in here. We sat near the window so we could see the sea. The service was good and very quickly got our lunch.

This is a delight and one of the very best restaurants on the coast of Norfolk. A relaxed environment for casual dinning with friends or family all for a reasonable price and good quality. Quite trendy for Cromer too!
