Wonderful views with Food

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!

You can't visit Cromer without having a crab salad and this cafe was just the place to get one. Above the Lifeboat Museum and with a balcony with outside seating if it's warm enough [it was] with a terrific view of the pier and the beach. We had the crab platter - crab [obviously, bread and butter, salad, potato salad,... More

Managed to pick a warm sunny day to have crab salad and a side order of chips. Great staff. Potato salad was over cooked and soggy, so we were pleased we had chips. Lovely coffee. We visit often and have always enjoyed it.

Have had several lovely lunches here recently. Great variety on offer, not your run of the mill café menu and the cakes are to die for. Wines, cider and beers on offer too. The staff are all very friendly and best of all is the view of Cromer beach and pier. There is seating outside if you're lucky and it's... More

Went for lunch and had a lovely veggie salad, sitting with a lovely view and great friendly staff. Worth every penny and beautiful fresh tasting food. My favourite place in town.

This cafe was recommended by a friend and so I booked for the Saturday night 13 June. We all had starters and main course. All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The food was amazing and clearly all homemade and cooked to order. All restaurant standard. Unfortunately we were all too full to try the desserts which looked... More

This was the first times I had eaten dinner at The Rocket House, after having lunch on many occasions and what a great first time it was. We have eaten in many popular, coastal establishments along the North Norfolk Coast, many with very good menus and The Rocket House is easily on par with these eateries, including many along the...
