I know the owners would prefer me to say 'traditional' but for me it's delicious old fashioned because it reminds me of the 'real' meals I used to have as a child. For example, steak pie is served with the pie, not in a separate dish on the side of the plate, but actually on the plate itself - with... More

Lovely home cooked food and friendly staff. A small and cosy cafe but definitely worth a visit or two!

The best breakfast we have had in 3 years. Can't beat good local produce and the Halesworth charm. Canadian breakfast not quite the same.

Visited this cafe again and had a nice home cooked meal at a sensible price. Very accommodating owners who work hard to please. This seems to be a local pensioners outing cafe full of pensioners after a cheap good meal!!! Food was excellent home cooking. But it is not the place to linger as good as the food is and... More

This is more of a cafe than a restaurant but the food is much better than your average cafe. Went there for Sunday lunch and pleased I had reserved a table earlier otherwise we wouldn't have got a table. The food was just like home cooking. Lots of vegetables perfectly cooked. Potatoes and yorkshires excellent. If you want to have... More

I am so please you enjoyed your lunch. All of our desserts are homemade and the lemon meringue is very popular. We like to call ourselves an eatery rather than a Cafe/Restaurant and offer good,honest, home cook food sourced locally and at a reasonable price. More

Visited a couple of weeks ago when my sister and brother in law visited. We had 2 portions of scampi & chips and brother in law had steak, which was cooked to perfection. Good to be offered a choice of normal of small portions, as some people only have small appetites. Scampi was delicious, came with a choice of chips... More

This is a hidden gem in the main street in Halesworth. Hardly any frontage to the café but a very warm welcome when you get in. Although as we are from Norfolk we were asked if we had our passports ready (joke)! they cater very well for Gluten free diets. As we take Mother-in-law this is very important. You have... More

We think it is only right that the time has come to highlight the "man behind the scenes" at this small extremely friendly restaurant. Chef Kevin Prime, works tirelessly to produce stunning fresh food. He is also willing to go the extra mile and accommodate all preferences, tastes and dietary needs. His cakes, sausage rolls and stunning range of doughnuts... More
