The Waterside Rollesby

Details

The Waterside in Rollesby near Great Yarmouth, is nestled among the stunning surroundings of Rollesby Broad, a triple rated site of specific scientific interest, part of Britain's Magical Waterland. The Waterside is located just 15 miles from Norwich and 7 miles from Great Yarmouth on the main A149 Stalham to Yarmouth Road. We are open 7 days a week, year-round with free admission and parking.

The Waterside Cafe and tea rooms serves morning brunch, a tempting range of homemade cakes and scones, pastries, ice-creams, lunches and traditional afternoon teas. Produce is sourced locally and we use only the freshest ingredients. We believe one of our greatest assets is our magnificent setting right on the Broad where you can enjoy the tranquil views with alfesco dining from our stunning outdoor terrace. You may even spot the resident family of herons.

Our fabulous dining experience is complemented by a range of fun things to see and do. Visitors can enjoy an informative tour on a beautiful Edwardian launch or explore the Broad in our range of hire boats, including our specially designed wheelchair accessible boat. Fishing is available in season from our self-drive hire boats. There's a children's play area with putting. Binoculars are available for hire to help with spotting the incredible range of wildlife and we have our own Bird Hide overlooking the Broad.
