Description: Focussing on locally-grown and sourced artisan produce, Thornham Deli will showcase the very best that Norfolk has to offer in the deli cafe. The kitchen will continue to produce its own home-made jams, chutney's, cakes and savouries. The daily specials board and lunch table will reflect what is available seasonally and locally. We have our own brand of products produced in our kitchen. There is an amazing gift and lifestyle shop which sells all things for the home and clothing from Anna and Gunhill. The restaurant is famous for breakfast and serves lunches and afternoon tea as well as offering a wide range of home made deli goodies. There is an outside eating and relaxing area with toddlers playground and a more grown up playground next door. Ample parking means there will always be space for you.

“Best breakfast in a long while.”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Nice rustic designer setting, but above all the food here (breakfast) is what food should be like when eating out. Look forward to visiting again and hope the standard keeps up.

“Ordered food for the beach”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

We were a large group of 20 staying in Brancaster Staithes who wanted a picnic on the beach.We ordered sandwiches,quiche,sausage rolls and nibbles from the Deli as we had no way of getting fresh food from home.
The food was waiting for us ,wrapped and cool and presented beautifully.
It all went down very well as we played rounders on Brancaster beach.
Could not fault the place and all the produce looked great in the Deli.
Thanks for making our day.

“Must try harder!”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

Oh dear :-( Such a disappointing visit to the newly revamped Cafe. The interior does look very smart, and the food offering was tempting, but a simple order for a coffee, a hot chocolate and a flapjack to the outside seats resulted in a twenty minute wait! And they weren't busy! First of all they lost the order, then some time later we got the drinks....with the coffee half spilt into the saucer... Whilst we sat and waited several other people gave up and left. Having got our drinks, a second waitress wafted over with a tray, looked at us with our order...and said "Two americanos?" with a little whimper as if, by 11 a.m. she'd already had enough of this waitressing lark. Really not good enough - the latest reincarnation of what was once a very good coffee shop, and a favourite refreshment place of mine, is not delivering the goods. Perhaps a little less spent on the decor, and a little more spent on staff recruitment and training, plus some efficient systems in place, would generate and retain the customers which this venue is going to rely on throughout the year.

“A Deli-ghtful diner”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Have now been twice. First time very busy, food ordered, quickly served, delightful staff, lovely food exactly as ordered. Second visit very busy, food ordered eventually then told would be about a 30 min wait, again delightful staff, lovely food but although the dishes as ordered composed not as advertised. For example my salmon fishcakes first time had a salad, second time had roast vegetables - quite a surprise, but still nice. Chips to die for. Extremely good value for money and we enjoyed and will certainly return - after the school holidays.

“Back on track”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

The Deli is under new management but the menu and some of the staff much are the same. There has been a minor makeover with the addition of weathered corrugated roofing down one wall - not sure if this a good thing but it is different.

We have been twice in 3 days and find the staff helpful and the service speed OK. The menu offers something for everyone and the food was good.

We will be back.
