Welcomed on entering and shown to a table, menu and daily specials all explained by a charming bubbly young lady. Opted for the special of ham, eggs and chips. The food arrived within 15 minutes even though... More

This was about midway in our journey to near Cromer, convenient "pit stop" for a break and coffee. Easily accessible and plenty of parking. Happy, smiling greeting from staff, spacious in door seating area, prompt service. We only wanted coffee, which as very good, but there was a great variety and choice of very attractive looking cakes. There were other... More

The food is very tasty good portions & lovely presentation, desserts are out of this world especially the cream scone. Staff very friendly & service was quick. The decor is good & welcoming. It was nice to be able to sit outside & eat with our dog who was made to feel welcome too. Will be back very soon.

Stopped at Brown's kitchen as driving to Lincolnshire and it worked out as about halfway. Had bacon roll and pot of tea. The bacon was plentiful in the roll and tasty. The pot of tea was enough to have a couple of cups. The staff was friendly and the toilets were clean.

Stopped on the way to see family, two big freshly cooked breakfasts, pot of tea and fresh coffee. Cheerful staff, spotlessly clean and not too long to wait. All the meat and produce is locally produced, with information on the menu and a chalk board to let you know exactly where and by whom it has been produced. The bacon... More

Went for mothers day lunch - the food, service and people were brilliant. Couldn't fault a thing. My niece often goes for breakfast which she also says is incredible.

Loved this little place, we just pulled in for a pit stop on a long return journey to Norfolk, looked fairly unassuming, so wasn't expecting much. We were wrong, this place has got it completely right! The food was all made on the premises, extremely fresh, flavoursome and generous portions - really could not fault it at all, other than...

Excellent menu. Well worth a visit. Ample parking. Great value meals. Try the roast on Sundays but you need to book a table as it is very popular.

Spotted this on our journey to North Norfolk. Easy to just pull off the road at the roundabout. Ample parking, free wifi and a warm welcome. Enjoyed a huge cheese scone and my partner had a breakfast sandwich. Good coffee too.

Dear Eileen B, I would like to point out to potential customers that your review of Brown's is misleading and incorrect. Breakfast LAST ORDERS are at 11.30am, and there are plenty of alternatives after that time. All our food is made fresh on the premises, therefore we can cater for any food intolerance if you inform us. If you have... More
