Lovely set up meals great they serve beer and wine view is good from seating overlooking trees and grassland where feral hens and roosters graze which is part of NI culture. Table service

Thank you for your review - glad you enjoyed your lunch and the "scenery" . Those feral hens and Roosters are part of the landscape here and they enjoy the big lawn out the front.

Mary the owner churns out consistently great coffees. They also do very exceptional quiches. They don't open till 10am which is annoying, given many people head out for coffee a little earlier than this, and I know they lose a fair bit of business as a result. If you can hold out till 10am I believe this and Seriously Chocolate make the best coffees on the island!

We are a Fully Licenced Bar as well as a Cafe and have restrictions on our Bar Trading hours. We are open sometimes as late as 9pm to cater for my regular Bar customers so which is why we dont open until 10am.

Glad you enjoyed your coffee and it was good to see you back on more than one occasion. Hope you enjoyed your stay on Norfolk.

Thank you - I do have a great bunch of bar regulars who welcome visitors and if you are up for a good laugh and some great stories its well worth stopping in for a coldie and joining the "round table". Hope you enjoyed your time on Norfolk.
