I am local and we have visited the Rocket house on several occasions - and in fact had a fantastic lunch there over the new year weekend. We like the place, the view is stunning and the staff friendly. The only problem is that often its hard to get a table! However, I am disappointed in the quality of their... More

Decent food but nothing to shout about. As expected from a café. The location is the key to this place, situated on the cromer coast with lovely views of the beach and sea. Would recommend for a quick and simple bits to eat.

What a find, had superb food in a lovely environment Service is from a lovely bunch of ladies and gents who dash about energetically and enthusiastically. Well priced for what they serve. Would definitely go back.

An excellent setting for a snack or meal with lovely views over the beach and pier. Never been disappointed with anything on the menu. The service has always been excellent with friendly staff who always seem enthusiastic and eager to please. We never have had to wait long for our order to appear, even during busy periods e.g. during bank... More

We are locals and come here for lunches whenever we have friends to visit. The service (lots or energetic young people) is friendly and quick, the décor fun and funky, the specials always worth a look. Even when it's crowded there is almost always a place to sit, and there are great views over the sea.

A great place to go for morning coffee or afternoon tea. Views over the sea and to the pier. The coffee is great and very reasonable. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Haven't had a meal there.
