As a veteran of afternoon teas, I can say with some authority that this rates up there with the best of them, and at £10 real value for money. Roll on the next one.

I've often eaten here when I visit the area and have never yet been disappointed. The food and service is always good.

I am a regular visitor to this little gem, both for coffee and scone and for an evening function. My latest visit was for a group festive evening meal. What amazing value for money, the quality of the food is excellent, perfect portion sizes and the service from all the staff is so friendly and relaxed. The owners Mark and... More

Meal was pre ordered off the Christmas menu. quite disappointing given previous experience of the place. We were a fairly large group and the meal choices had been pre-selected however despite the pre-warning the actual serving of the meals was quite long winded with just one person bringing out the individual plates so quite a time between the first persons...

Went here for a family celebration. They opened especially, and as I was recovering from an operation and was unable to eat normal food they did me the most wonderful soup! The rest of the food served looked delicious - a real gem!!

The service was impeccable, friendly and prompt, the menu varied from cakes to a full sized lunch. Our choice of Chicken chilli baguette and Tuna and spring onion sandwiches were almost out of this world. Highly recommended especially as close to e car park.

This is the first time my sister and I had visited The Cockerel and came on the recommendation of a work colleague, considering we hadn't booked and wanted a cooked lunch they were happy to accommodate us. The atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable, back ground music was nice and festive but not too loud so you could still talk to... More

Me and a couple of friends came here during the summer for a spot of lunch. We sat in the lovely outside court yard. The waitress took our order quickly. I can be fussy but they accommodated my needs (by swapping bits of the fry up for other bits) and it was delicious! The staff were very friendly and I... More

We have lunch in the Cockerel about once a year with friends who live in North Walsham and, on our visit last Thursday, everything was up to the usual high standard. Small but varied menu, good service, interesting decor (done by the owners I believe). My partner thought the parsnips in the beef casserole was a nice touch - she... More

I haven't had a chance to visit the delightful little tearoom for a couple of months now but have been to several of the Flying Cockerel functions. All were absolutely excellent.
