Coming up at Creake Abbey Café and Food Hall …  

Flip flop friendly dining

platter1 - CopyWe’re open daily for ultra-relaxed dining straight from the beach during the school holidays until 31st August, from 4pm. Our Head Chef Jay calls it “flip flop friendly dining”. Come just as you are and enjoy a glass of wine on the terrace while the children burn off any energy they’ve got left. Last dinner orders 6.30pm.

On Fridays and Saturdays we also serve our usual a la carte menu from 6pm, last dinner orders 8.30pm. Booking is advisable. Give us a call on 01328 730399 or email bookings@creakeabbeycafe.com  Click here for a sample menu. Sunday night is barbecue night, when we’ll be serving meats from our butchery including homemade burgers and rare breed sausages. And of course our Food Hall will still be open, so you can stock up on essentials and the odd treat, and be picnic ready for the next day!

 

We’ve a packed events programme lined up over the next couple of months. September sees the return of Quiz Night and Steak Night, and we’re taking part in North Norfolk Restaurant Week from 22nd September to 5th October. Watch this space for more details!

Our monthly Jazz Night continues and we’re delighted to be holding another Spanish Night on 18th October with live music and flamenco dance, as well as a fun Halloween event on 31st October for our younger customers – including a spooky walk to the Abbey ruins! Click here for our events page.

We’re also looking forward to the return of some special winged visitors!
