The Owl Tea Rooms is probably the oldest tea room in Norfolk, based in the North Norfolk historic town of Holt. Traditional homemade cakes and pastries available to eat in or takeaway from our bakery. Spacious, licensed tea garden and dining room serving breakfast, lunch and tea. Afternoon Tea a speciality. Dogs welcome in the garden.
The Owl is a very special place as it is arguably the oldest tea room in Norfolk. It changed hands at the start of 2017 and we, as the new owners, have done our very best to embrace and preserve the long-held traditions of this iconic bakery and café, whilst easing it into the 21st century with additional, new and exciting specialities.
