A dog friendly place with good food and tea. I had battered haddock and chips which was the best fish and chips I consumed on my holiday. My wifes veggie burger was also very good, so along with good service we were very pleased.

Whilst dogs aren't allowed inside (there's simply not enough room) the are very welcome in the courtyard garden area and we've met many, many people this week who've enjoyed the cage as... More

Had lunch for 4 today at this cozy barn cafe/restaurant. Food was very good and the service too. £55 for 4 adults, including drinks and desserts was excellent value for money. Book early to avoid disappointment!

A great little place to sit and... More

We visited this cafe after a lovely walk along the beach. We sat outside as we had our dog with us and fortunate to have good weather. The fish finger ciabatta hit the spot and cappuccino was lovely.

We have been there before so wanted to show our friends this lovely local cafe. They welcome dogs have an outside area and it's warm and cosy inside with parking. They do a local selection of hot meals and homemade cakes. A definite must.

We're a friendly, family-run cafe offering a great choice of home-baked cakes and home-cooked breakfasts and lunches, as well as fish and chips. We're ideally positioned next to Cart Gap beach, with views open farmland and Happisburgh lighthouse. Dogs are welcome in our enclosed rear garden.
