About Us

Established in 2005, The Old Rock Shop Bistro can be found on Hamilton Road, in the heart of Cromer town centre…just look for the blue ‘Hovis’ trade bike outside & you’ve found us!

Known locally simply as ‘The Bistro’, we named the business to reflect the heritage of the building. If you know Cromer well, you may remember it as J&M's Rock Shop, a favourite of locals & holiday makers alike, that traded on the site for over 20 years prior to becoming a café.


We’re a friendly, independently owned café-bistro serving delicious, homemade food in the heart of Cromer, Norfolk.



Contact us today for all your event catering needs in and around Norfolk and East Anglia.


Norfolk Sausage Rolls

Using Norfolk pork sausage meat from our local butcher, lightly seasoned and hand-rolled in flaky puff pastry. If you’ve been lucky enough to catch these fresh from the oven then you’ll know why they’re our most popular selling product! 

Cromer Crab

No visit to Cromer would be complete without some delicious, world famous Cromer Crab. 


We get our crabs direct from JJ & CAS Davies & Jonas Seafoods, nationally renowned fishmongers who have fished off the coast of Cromer for generations. Landed daily in their own boats, the crabs we serve simply could not be fresher or with less food miles! However of course that also means that if the weather’s been bad, there’s no crab to be had – sorry!
