Wanted somewhere to have brunch on our way to Gt Yarmouth, looks lovely, we walked into the shop and 2 members of staff turned their noses up at us, it was very expensive £20 for a 35cl bottle of sloe gin, the restaurant was quite small, very busy we had a sandwich with chips and 2 coffees cost £19, it...

Have eaten here on a few occasions, usually sit outside in the Courtyard so our Dog can accompany us, they will also provide water for your pet pooch to drink. On a sunny day it's lovely, sheltered from the wind and plenty to look at with the various shops. Sandwiches are very good, not cheap but not overtly expensive either.... More

Sad day today. Umpteenth visit to Elveden farm shop to eat in their until now excellent restaurant. And today, after many years, it went downhill fast. On the surface everything looked OK and we met our friend who has been there many times – some with us. She has what might be called a strong catering track record. Prices maybe... More

Visited here one Sunday lunchtime with my elderly mother. She struggles to walk far so it was quite nice having the restaurant close to the car park. We sat in the courtyard as inside was full. Luckily the weather held and we managed to have lunch without it raining. We ordered homemade soup which came with a nice chunky piece... More

My husband and I sat in the courtyard on the most beautiful sunny day and had afternoon tea here after browsing the little shops. It was lovely, both the tea and the food was amazingly good. Service was ok, we were left to get on with it once the afternoon tea was brought out so did have to chase up... More

Enjoyed a really nice lunch here, restaurant was spacious and comfortable prices were a bit steep for what we had. Best avoided during summer school time as I am sure being so close to Centre Oarcs it will be full of families

We are happy that you enjoyed your lunch with us. Please do not be put off by the children being on summer holidays though. We do have an increase in families traveling to the coast etc but with the seating in our outside Courtyard area in use this doesn't cause us a problem It would be a shame if you... More

What a shame. This is an excellent location and a fairly nice if slightly overpriced food hall with an inviting Restaurant. But what an odd way to conduct business! If I were in the service industry I would consider the customer King and cater to their reasonable requests. They have a very good breakfast menu which stops at 11-15. First... More

Just off the A14 the courtyard shops and restaurant are well worth a visit. Plenty of parking available. The farm shop with fresh produce, wonderful Suffolk sausages, bacon, veg, fruit, bread, cakes and a wonderful array of cheeses are delectable. Lots of sauces, jams, chutneys, marinades and so on available as well as some fine wines, Norfolk gin (lush), ciders... More

I took my Mum for afternoon tea for a belated Mother's Day treat and what a treat it was. The sandwiches and cake were lovely and there was plenty of them. You have unlimited tea and coffee and my only tip would be don't eat lunch before you go.......you won't need it! Excellent value at £22 for two and you... More

What a lucky Mum you have. We try to make our afternoon teas as indulgent as we can. Naughty but nice! We also sell gift vouchers so you can spoil someone for a special occasion. We have just added the option to add a glass of Prosecco for an extra £3.00. That gives you an excuse to visit us again... More
