Dogs in Specific outside areas only:  This is a great venue but dogs are only allowed in the two outdoor seating areas.

Get away from it all for a while, and unwind in a peaceful and tranquil setting surrounded by the sights and sounds of the Norfolk countryside.

The Painted Barn is set in a beautifully restored 16th century barn, with it’s original glorious beams. The adjacent studio benefits from views across the gentle rolling countryside.

We are earning a reputation for our food here at The Painted Barn. Our lunch dishes, prepared with the highest quality locally sourced produce, including from our own family farm, are interesting, delicious and, as we are always trying new ideas, so our menu changes continually.

    We had tea and cake at the PB it was delicious. They serve glass tea pots with tea leaves which was different. I have black tea with a piece of date/pistachio/chocolate slice and it was so tasty. My wife had peppermint tea. This cafe is charming the barn has been renovated to a high standard it’s very comfortable. There is a shop in the cafe selling home stuff. Highly recommend a visit but suggest you book first I would go again but would like to try lunch.

    After having been recommended I was very disappointed. Poor welcome of "have you reserved" then told where we were allowed to sit. Ordered scone with compote and cream, cappuccino, tub of ice cream and tap water. My daughter was told to get the water at the back, which was left in the heat therefore very warm. The scone was dry with a very small portion of compote and cream. Overall abrupt service, lack of choice and quality of food does not match the price.

    Thank you Nick for a wonderful final lunch in the U.K. We couldn’t have been more happy to discover your hidden gem in the middle of Norfolk. The food was excellent and your good, fun nature added to the occasion. We will be back!

    We have visited twice now and on both occasions everything has been just prefect. This is a wonderful conversion of an old barn. Lots of the old beams and brickwork on show. Half the barn is given over to home accessories and small furniture pieces. The other half is the cafe. The staff are all so friendly. The coffee is so good - they really know how to brew a proper coffee! There's also a lovely selection of loose leaf teas. We have tried the homemade pork and cider sausage roll, the cheese scone, and the local made Brays pork pies. All delicious. There is also a small offering of light lunch dishes. But then there are the cakes - all homemade and all delicious We tried the coffee and walnut and raspberry and apple gluten free. If you are passing by, you must turn down the drive for a visit. You won't be disappointed!
