We had the most amazing evening thanks to Robbie and the Rocket House staff. Firstly, the venue is stunning with a full length balcony with chairs and tables to watch a Cromer sunset. We moved into the café itself which has a lovely contemporary feel to it and enjoyed meet and greet with our guests with dancing later. The food... More

Great location, superb views, efficient service and delicious food. Had the Crab Platter from the seasonal special's menu; the best thing I have had in a long time. The staff we encountered were very helpful and child friendly too. If you have any worries about clambering up all those stairs, there is a lift to assist. The next time we... More

Really great menu served at the Rocket cafe. If you can get a table on the balcony the setting is amazing. Make sure you get the pork roll, it was so yummy!!!

A friend and I went to the Rocket House for lunch. We managed to get a seat on the balcony overlooking the beach. It's a wonderful spot near the gangway where the crab boats come in and out. Mt friend ordered a tuna mayo sandwich and I had a ham and cheese baguette. The ham and cheese in mine was... More

This most excellent restaurant is located above the RNLI Henry Blogg museum on The Gangway just along from the Pier. The place has a fresh, clear and welcoming atmosphere as you walk in and offers dining inside or on the terrace overlooking the sea. The staff offered are equally pleasant welcome and helpful. You place your order having found a... More

Went to the Rocket House Café in Cromer for breakfast. Fantastic quiet location overlooking the beach and sea. Plenty of indoor seating for those bracing days but on this gloriously hot July day we chose to sit on the balcony overlooking the beach and sea. My Wife and I went there with friends who live in Cromer and use the... More

I visited this restaurant on a Saturday night with my family (party of 6) for dinner. They were actually meant to be fully booked, but went out of their way to accommodate us, which was really lovely. The food was very high quality, reasonably priced, and I loved the emphasis on locally sourced ingredients, health and making everything from scratch.... More

Good cafe, nice food & hot drinks, especially for cake lovers. When the wind and rain gets up, make it your port of call, right down on the front.
