“Thursday Breakfasts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Each week I take my Dad out and we go for late breakfast. The Dinning room is the best breakfast in Great Yarmouth. Yesterday we both had the full breakfast, both being a bit fussy we requested one with poach egg and one with scrambled, wholemeal toast and no butter with one, one tea decaf and one ordinary. Both pots of tea were generous, breakfast came within 20 mins. The Bacon was crispy, sausages - best in Yarmouth, beans - good quality, grilled fresh tomato perfect, mushrooms also good, my eggs scrambled to perfection and tasting of egg not butter! Dads poached also cooked to perfection. Toast was proper bread not sliced cardboard. We were offered a refill on the teapots too! The staff were friendly and welcoming. The decor was good. This is a place to feel comfortable in. We'll be back in a couple of weeks!

“Great afternoon tea for £4.95”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We visited this restaurant one afternoon. We had been before but it's under new , better management. We only had tea and scones but they were the best I have tasted fora long time. We were a large group and had told the owner we were coming. He had baked fresh scones and they were great. the staff were helpful and efficient, serving us quickly and with a smile. We saw other meals being served and they looked very nice. The menu is standard cafe fare but there are daily specials that were a bit more adventurous . The whole place is clean, modern and a great place for lunch or a snack. Just opposite the pier and so much better than the food available there.

“A little Gem :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Popped in here recently for a cuppa and was very pleasantly surprised, lovely big pot of really good tea and lovely fresh homemade scones. Very impressed with the price, was really reasonable great value for money, only down side was the doors were difficult to get out of with a full tray.
Will definitely be returning again!

“A BEACON OF HOPE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Upon entering having been advised that this was the best, by a local hotel manager, we noticed how smart the staff were dressed . All in suits and how clean and pleasant the interior looked.

The food followed the same high standard and we also observed how the staff made an effort to help disabled customers to move about the interior.

I thought that this establishment put many of the chains way behind them and perhaps a franchise might be the way forward to get this standard across the Country.
Compared to the other venues we passed this was top of the Premiership in Great Yarmouth which sadly seemed to be of the opinion that Great did not apply and was really a mistake and not meant to be taken seriously.
If I was a youngster of school age I would ensure I worked at school 110% to try to either leave or make this place better.
