We arrived on spec today after a fairly patchy tea shop experience during our week in Norfolk. The lack of a loo sent 2 of our party elsewhere for 10 minutes (lovely loos in the library) but this is the only fault in a faultless tea shop. Often the coffee is poor (here it was very good). Sometimes the scones are old (these were fresh, crumbly on the outside, moist in the inside, and warm). Cakes are often a disappointment (the strawberry and vanilla looked wonderful and my daughter loved it, but wouldn't share). The tea was good, served in a quirky owl teapot. We could have stayed for hours and gone round the menu several times. We loved the fresh strawberries in the tiny jam pot, the clotted cream ( no cheap whipped or squirty cream here) and the staff - so friendly and helpful.
We only discovered this place on the last day of our holiday. Such a shame as we would have visited daily if we has found it earlier. A real credit to the county, and the lovely town. The rest of Norfolk could learn a lot in terms of service, ingredients, staff and quality from this place. Wonderful!
