As the name implies, Pretty Corner, found en route to Sheringham in Norfolk, has been a renowned beauty spot for decades.
Pretty Corner Café and Tea Gardens first opened in 1926 in a wooden pavilion that had no running water or electricity. The owners of the time became widely known for their homemade chocolates and sweets, which won a number of awards. While it has evolved, it is still as popular today as it was back then, with walkers, cyclists and holidaymakers enjoying the peaceful woodland setting.
Inside, the modest flint and brick Café is airy and homely with pictures by local talent decorating the walls, flowers on every table and gently padded chairs. There is a wood burning stove for cooler days and an outside patio and garden, flanked by many shrubs and flowering plants, for warm weather.
Pretty Corner Café & Tea Gardens pride themselves in using fresh, locally sourced ingredients throughout their menu, supporting local producers, as well as growing their own.
The menu includes lunchtime favourites such as Panninis, Jacket Potatoes, Salads and Sandwiches, as well as homemade daily specials. There is a mouthwatering selection of homemade cakes, scones and desserts.
As you’d expect from a self-respecting Tea Gardens, Pretty Corner Café offers a selection of speciality teas (as well as coffee and soft drinks) – perfect with a homemade scone in a Pretty Corner Cream Tea.
Coffee fans will appreciate the Espresso machine (enjoy a really good Fair Trade Cappuccino and Cafe Latte coffee).
Vegetarians and children are well catered for; and there are gluten-free options on the menu.
Pretty Corner Café and Tea Gardens is child-friendly and welcomes dogs.
Unfortunately, they cannot accept credit or debit cards.
Open from Friday 31st March – 31st October 10.30am – 5pm. Open 7 days in school holidays, closed Tuesday during term time.
