The Sitting Room
Situated just off Sheringham High Street, The Sitting Room serves breakfasts, lunches, afternoon teas and sharing boards. It shares premises with the Westcliffe Art Gallery and browsing is encouraged.
Breakfast at The Sitting Room is a robust continental version, comprising pastries or toast with marmalades, curds and jams, fresh fruit, cured meats and cheese. Each table has its own toaster so you can toast your bread how you like it.
If you’re after a light lunch, the house salads are excellent, or you can create your own from a fine array of ingredients. Those who want a heartier lunch can choose between quiches, savoury muffins, soups, hot sausage rolls, sandwiches and rolls.
The afternoon tea served on delicate mismatched vintage china is done well: expect delicious cakes – including gluten-free choices – and patisserie such as millefeuilles, raspberry and white chocolate tart or macarons. You have to pre-book afternoon tea.
On Friday evenings, The Sitting Room is open until 9pm where, alongside the standard menu, you can enjoy cheese or Mediterranean cured meat boards, dips, olives and artisan bread washed down with a glass or two of wine.
Owners Paul and Kristian and their team are attentive without being intrusive. The food is of a high standard and the little touches and ambience will make you want to return very soon.
