Coast Kitchen, Waxham

Cool signage, underfloor heating, dog friendly and homemade cakes all within a 16th Century thatched barn - you don't get much more Muddy than that! 

We were super excited to hear that the owners of the gorgeous  Garden Kitchen Cafe at  Hoveton Hall (near Wroxham) have recently taken over the cafe at Waxham Barn and given it a fabulous new makeover. The vibe is relaxed  yet  modern  and definitely suitable for everyone and that includes your four-legged friends!

The menu is impressive and includes  gluten free, vegetarian, vegan  and  dairy free  options. You’ll find lots of  local produce – cakes, brunches and lunches  and now to our delight, alcohol - hoorah!

Location, location, location! The cafe is within the impressive Waxham Great Barn complex – the  longest thatched barn in Norfolk. This is a  popular tourist attraction/ wedding venue due to its impressive structure and interesting past which  involved  smuggling and shipwrecks. It’s also a  great place to show to the kids while you finish your cake in peace.

Sand, seals  and  sea shells are just  a short walk away  over the dunes and  onto the  relatively undiscovered  sandy beach that runs between Sea Palling and Horsey.  Approximately 30 minutes from Norwich, this is the type of off grid beach and cafe  that will take you back to your childhood. We love it for a  family day out, dog walking or girly escape with friends. All of which end perfectly with a visit to the Coast Kitchen Cafe.

Coast Kitchen will be offering s pecial  events throughout the year  and hot of the press – they’re  introducing picnic  packages  for summer 2020. No more soggy sandwiches – all you need to pack is a  blanket!

Available for  private hire too, but don’t worry – on the rare days when the cafe is closed for an event, they will be  offering street food and drinks from their food box trailer.

For all the latest developments – follow their page on Facebook.

They’re currently open  Friday – Sunday 10am -4pm for brunch, lunch and  cake,  for the summer (from the start of the Easter hols, 3rd April)  they will be open  Tuesday – Sunday, 10-4pm.
