Great food, great views!

Find your table first before ordering (I think there's a sign to warn you) as it gets busy! We sat outside but in the sheltered area which was perfect, great views but sheltered by the wind. I had the Crab platter with tartare sauce, bread and pickles which was delicious and my husband had the Fish... read more

Had heard that this cafe was meant to be nice so decided to try it out with my sister. We just ordered coffee and hog roast baguette. The food when it arrived was fantastic and much more that I was expecting. You would expect that sort of food from a nice hotel and to be charged much more. The views... More

After visiting the Henry Blogg museuem downstairs we decided to pop upstairs for a coffee and so glad we did! This cafe is beautifully situated with stunning sea views to the pier. We stayed for a lovely sandwich lunch and thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Rocket House, highly recommended.

Sit on the verandah and enjoy tea and cakes whilst enjoying the sea view and hopefully sunshine! Friendly smiley staff. A great place for a cuppa.

This lovely cafe transforms into a very atmospheric restaurant on Friday and Saturday nights. The menu offered lots of local seasonal produce - our choices included Norfolk asparagus, Cromer lobster and crab. The food was truly superb and the service was attentive but not intrusive. We skipped desert but had a lovelt cup of coffee to finish. Looking out to... More

Visited for lunch today and we both chose the burgers, they were fantastic, freshly cooked, with local bacon & pesto. The service is always good, with a friendly warm smile. A great place to visit for a coffee or a tasty meal. Good views out across the beach.

Whilst staying in Cromer popped in to Rocket House for a coffee, sat out on the Balcony watching the fishing boats - wonderful! We decided to go back and try out the Saturday evening meal and was not disappointed, seasonal menu limited choice but there was several things I could have chosen. I had Cromer crab platter and my husband... More

Have been to the Rocket House Café a number of times and am never disappointed. The staff are very keen to please and are prompt bringing orders to your table. The cakes and snacks are always very good and drinks hot. If the weather is OK ( not windy) it is great to sit out on the verandah and watch... More

Nice coffee and cakes but it seemed that once people had secured a good seat that they were going to stay put - this was manageable on a cold March day, but I hate to think what it would be like in school holiday!
