The Crab Hut Brancaster Staithe North Norfolk...great seafood and great coffee

I found the Crab Hut purely by accident but blimey what a great accident. Chatting in queue and guy in front was a local farmer. He asked for ‘specials’. I followed suit :D
Fantastic the teas good too.

Visited Manor House Tea Rooms, Earlswood yesterday (their re-opening day). Now feels like getting a little bit back to normality.

Nice to see, as we left, a few cyclists turning up - cyclists are almost the bread-and-butter customers! Hope they didn't park thier bikes in the walkway round to the back garden though, the proprietor has bent over backwards to give people lots of space in what is not a very big place to start with.

They've really pulled out the stops to make their customers safe and, importantly, feel safe. Lots of outside tables/chairs. Small marquee to take orders, since the area around the indoor till is so tight they've moved it all outdoors! Goes without saying excellent coffee and scones! Nice to see its the same people. And nice to see Frank, Sammy and Dino (the goats).

The well loved Cobblestone Corner cafe in Chipping was closed and vacated a few weeks back, but the Deli opposite sold take out coffees and eats.
The village shop in Levens has a coffee machine and sells cornish pasties to die for with outdoor seating.
The Riverbank Cafe in Slaidburn was doing take out coffees last Saturday and we got fuelled up here for the climb over Waddington Fell.
The Bob Inn at New Barns has been closed all summer, but Arnside is not short of spots and the cafe opposite the station has re opened with new people.
Suzies snackbar in Milnethorpe is a popular watering hole for cyclists and is open most days. The last time I was there, I met my neighbour, four doors down who is also a cyclist!
My crowd are fond of Hazy Days in Hellifield but the silly tier rules have stopped many of us getting together there.

Just a heads up. Hazy Days in Hellifield May have closed. No sign of life the last few times I have cycled past.
There is a very good alternative .....Shed 24H at Hellifield railway station. Check out the opening times though, they may have changed very recently.

The Beach hut Cafe at Arnside, the one along by the Coast Guard station is open every day from 10 to 4 serving take-outs including very nice chocolate cakes.
