Sara's tearooms


Sara's Tearooms in Great Yarmouth is a family run, dog friendly cafe focused on delivering great service & quality food all at value for money prices. Based within the Pleasure Beach Gardens, we are located at the Pleasure Beach end of the seafront, right on the edge of Great Yarmouth's South Beach.

From freshly ground coffee to delicious clotted cream teas, lite-bites to main meals, our menu offers a wide variety of choices including many homemade meals and cakes.

"When we say 'homemade', it's genuinely homemade by us."

Cakes and homemade meals are Sara’s speciality, with every cake and homemade special ever sold at the Tearooms being personally baked by Sara herself.

"Relax and enjoy the experience"

Take time out to relax and dine in our newly refurbished restaurant area… a perfect escape from the hustle & bustle of the seafront. Alternatively, you can also dine alfresco style in our Gold Award winning flower gardens area or on our covered beach terrace with unobstructed sea views and direct access to the beach.

Sara’s Tearooms is open from late March to October. Car parking with a charge is available within a 200 metre walk, but we do offer free cycle parking for our customers. Regular visitors can benefit from our loyalty card, which rewards you with a fantastic money saving offer.
