“Yummy mummy eaterie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Called in for deli produce, very good although very expensive. Stopped in cafe for snack lunch. very expensive. 2 ciabatta rolls filled with rare beef another with lamb accompanied by a small bowl of crisps. Tasty but expensive at £5.95 each. A bottle of water & a pot of tea total bill 0ver £16. Tasted fine but a bit over the top. A bit of a poser place with young, old and middle being pretentiuos. Would use the deli again as superb food available.

“Lovely Place- Adore the Garden space!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Stopped for coffee here on route to Holt- have been once before and really do enjoy what this place has to offer- brilliant mini market/deli style vibe going on when you first enter, then through to the back is a lovely, spacious cafe with a varied menu to even accommodate the most fussy! Beyond this a beautiful landscaped garden extends off the cafe, unfortunately it wasn't such a nice day to sit out!

The prices are a little high, however if majority of the produce is local or of a high standard, i don't mind paying the extra! which I believe this place is worthy of.

Staff all pleasant, knowledgable and informative of the products in store.

Lovely place that should continue to strive! well done.

“Best meal we have had in Norfolk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

For someone to give this a 1 star rating is absurd.
One of the best meals I have ever eaten. If you want cheap food don't bother, if you are happy to pay a little extra for excellent food in a superb setting then you should try it.

“Overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Yes this restaurant is good but not great and it is not cheap although the food is good. It is unfortunately a place to be seen in and as such it is part of the Chelsea- on- sea effect in North Norfolk. The attached farm shop is ridiculously expensive (better to go to the Walsingham farm shop) and when we visited they were selling purple-sprouted broccoli imported from Portugal at a ridiculously high price when the same vegetable was available from locally sourced farms. The setting is wonderful and the décor matches but there are far better restaurants around the area at more reasonable prices.

“poor value”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

From Yorkshire on holiday we expect good food at a fair price. Do not go to this venue. Poor food at high prices.
