In the winter it is delightful with a welcoming open log fire with the dear little dog laid in front. The food is limited but fine. It's the atmosphere that makes the place, right on sea front with unobstructed views. In the summer you can sit on terrace & daydream by the sea with a cream tea. Again, little dog sitting enjoying himself.

I visited the Whelks Copper twice in my four day visit to Sheringham and I strongly recommend it. If you're sick of chain cafes and restaurants that all look the same, then this is a great place, full of individuality and very friendly, but unintrusive service. It's in a lovely old building overlooking the sea with a terrace which we didn't use. It is a cold, wet January after all. Inside, the rooms are wood panelled, and there's a large stone fireplace. It looks like it's been decorated by the Addams family, but in a really good way. The staff were lovely and didn't hurry us out, even though they'd closed. And it welcomes dogs, which is fab. They even have their own jack Russell who greets you when you arrive. Cosy and friendly with good, home made unfussy, inexpensive food. Will happily return. Love it.

We were so pleased to find them open on this very wet New Year's Day afternoon, after our walk from Weybourne, and delighted to find our dog was welcome too. We sat near the lovely open fire and dried off while enjoying a delicious bowl of homemade soup and crusty roll. They were busy but still managed to provide a good service, with a smile!

We have been here several times and like to sit in the garden which has lovely views out to sea and along the coast
Good food and service
We enjoyed a lunch time snack supported with two pots of tea
Can see why previous reviewer commented on the toilets needing updating but thought they were acceptable on th day we visited

This attractive building was formerly a place that prepared seafood i think.There are tables inside but it is nice to sit outside when the weather allows as there are good views of the sea and the old town.
They serve light meals.nice cakes and snacks along with a variety of hot and cold drinks.The service was a little hesitant when we visited but we did not mind,I think that there was some confusion with the staff regarding our order,One thinking that someone else had taken it.
Interesting building with cobbled approach.The menu is a little limited but worth a visit.
