Whelk Coppers Tea Rooms
Sheringham, Norfolk NR26 8LD
Whelk Coppers Tea Rooms is a family run business which can be found sitting proud above the West Promenade (on the coastal path) in Sheringham.
Opening times vary throughout the year.
The tea rooms were established in 1992 by the present owners Sandra & Peter Foster.
The building was originally fisherman's cottages and has evolved ever since.
The Tea Rooms are panelled in Indian Teak from a Royal Navy Frigate built in Calcutta in 1820. The amazing wrought Iron gates were reputedly designed by Walt Disney, a friend of the original owner.

Review: Olly Pup
My humans have been here so so many times over the last few years.
It's along the cliff path and the sea view is incredible. It's perfect for your humans to sit outside and watch the sea, watch the people enjoying the seaside, or the birds that come up unsurprisingly close.
It's an interesting set up, an outside courtyard and inside former fisherman's cottages.
Their website says they use local produce and support local businesses. I can't comment on that, beyond saying yummy yummy for my tummy.
It's location isn't ideal for dogs, being in the middle of the dog restriction beach stretch. But it makes up for it in a couple ways.
Firstly, it's just off the main high street, which makes for a quieter spot to eat.
Secondly the sea view makes up for it.
Thirdly it's handy for the (seasonal) fascinating Peter Coke Shell Gallery and the Fisherman's Heritage Centre. You just have to send the humans into those attractions in shifts while you sleep at the tea room.
Why should this interest us dogs?
Scones should interest us all, and any other food you can force your humans to give you of course.
They have a breakfast menu and a lunch menu and also a pre-bookable afternoon tea. The lunch menu includes the usual sandwiches and jacket potatoes with salads. Then there's the cakes, scones, sausage rolls and things.
This weekend we shared cheese scones and a plain scone with our mummy and daddy. I'm disappointed to say human no. 3 had vegan chocolate cake, which was apparently lovely, moist and chocolatey. The traitor.
Sitting outside, it does get a bit chilly being on the sea front, so the owners had kindly provided blankets for humans. Again human no. 3 was a traitor and said the blanket was warm and snuggly. Don't forget to tell your humans to bring you something to sit on and snuggle in.
If it's a bit chilly outside then be reassured us doggies are allowed inside too.
