Our Bistro Story

Here at The Old Rock Shop Bistro our aim is to provide great service, great food and great hospitality.

Established in 2005, the Bistro is run by myself and my sister Rachel.

I started working in the café that was previously on this site back on 2003 and when the business came up for sale I took it over in 2007.

We renamed the business to reflect the heritage of the building. If you know Cromer well, you may remember it as J&M's Rock Shop, a tourist favourite that traded on the site for over 20 years.

Since then, we've made plenty of changes to the menu, service and atmosphere, sourcing our meat, fish and other ingredients from local suppliers in the town.

We also offer a reliable and trusted catering service in homes, community venues and businesses.

Over the last decade we’ve seen our bistro grow into one of the busiest places to eat in Cromer, popular all year round with locals and visitors alike.

We're open from 7 days a week, 8am – 6pm, and serve food all day.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Old Rock Shop Bistro.
