“Lovely Cafe in a Barn”
Review of The Courtyard cafe Norwic - CLOSED

If you think of a Garden Centre as a large anonymous kind of supermarket....this is not that. It's a small garden centre based around an old barn and has various interesting sections with art as well as plants. The cafe is through the barn at the back. There are tables outside and about 5 tables inside. Service was great - a young woman who was the perfect host offering us extra hot water when we drank our tea. I had a great sausage roll and salad and my friend had a melting camembert with bread which looked great. A large tea pot too. Only lemon drizzle cake left but that was really tasty. I guess if we had come for tea and cake that might have been dissappointing. With two large pots of tea - it came to about 19 pounds. So not cheap but we had a great time and you could easily pay more in other garden centres for less quality. There were newspapers on the tables too and free wifi. We'll definitely be back. And somewhere outside Norwich which is great!

Stumbled on this wonderful place this week, beautiful spot behind a listed barn. The cafe has a relaxed atmosphere with really friendly owners. A crackling wood burner to keep us warm was very welcome. Good lunches and wonderful coffee are available. They also have a great selection of plants for sale a really good prices. Highly recommend.

what a lovely hidden spot! We have just discovered it. Its tiny - a little flint and brick building in the middle of a perfect garden centre. Delicious coffee and scones. Soup smells lovely too. Very friendly staff. Lots of quirky French flea market finds which are far too tempting. Can't believe I didn't know this was here and can't wait to go back.
