Don’t miss afternoon tea. Scones fresh from the oven are served on triple-tiered stands, and mismatched tea pots add to the fun. There’s a buzz about this place from the moment you step in. Staff are happy, friendly and keen, and a delightful eccentricity prevails.
The Queen Anne building dominates the market square of Reepham – sit on the terrace and watch the world go by. Back inside, a blackboard announces cookery workshops and spa treatments, and a listed staircase leads to bedrooms above.
Like much of Norfolk, Reepham is a place of curiosities. Discover its secret lanes, and its two churches built a few feet apart, or set off with a hamper to the Norfolk Broads, perhaps in a chauffeur-driven limousine – which can all be organised for you. Return to an elegant Norfolk-sourced meal, served beneath a vintage chandelier.
