Visit the Chill Out when travelling to and from holidays in Norfolk. Never been disappointed. Food always the same good quality. If you want to amend from the menu, no problem. Excellent value and friendly staff.

Not haute cuisine. Saturday breakfast Fried sos, fried egg, fried bread, tomato, beans and mushrooms. Coffee. Filling, fast, hot. Polite service, happy customers. Will come again, and try the varied menu.
