Our cosy riverside café is a beautiful and tranquil spot to stop for a drink and a bite to eat, away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
We serve a selection of hot and cold drinks, as well as baguettes, cakes and sausage/vegan rolls, plus an authentic Thai dish of the day made by owner Jaa Fisher. Many of the fragrant herbs and spices used in these dishes are grown on-site, and Jaa and her team are keen to use local suppliers wherever possible.
Why not tie in a trip to the café with a trip across the River Yare on the on-site ferry? A five-minute zip across the water offers easy access to the beauty of Whitlingham Broad and the quaint village of Trowse. Both the café and the ferry are dog-friendly (you may have seen our own ‘house dog’, Zelda the springador, in the photos and of course Jet the ferry dog), and you can even transport your bicycles across the river.
Opening times: Our opening hours are below but in the summer and school holidays, we will be open 7 days a week.
Parking: We have a large car park. Be aware when you drive down Bungalow Lane there is a gated rail road to cross.
Accessibility: Although our venue is wheelchair-accessible, sadly our toilets are not.
As per all listings on Dog Friendly Norfolk, we accept well behaved dogs.

A great way to explore Whitlingham from Thorpe without driving. We walked to the ferry down Bungalow Lane. Ferry takes you across to Whitlingham where it is a 20 minute stroll to Whitlingham barn Cafe. We walked around the great broad and back to catch the ferry. Stephen is a great host and the iced coffee was amazing.

Lovely guy offering a great service. So great for us non-drivers to be able to get to Whittlingham easily. There's a cafe (drinks and cakes) at the site too.
