Whistlestop Cafe at Aylsham Station - Norfolk

Whistlestop Cafe
Bure Valley Railway
Aylsham Station
Norwich Road

The cafe is big with plenty of tables.

It is well signposted from the Bure Valley Railway carpark.

Upon entering - I went on a weekday at about 10.30am and the place was almost empty. I spotted a Breakfast offer, full english And toast & butter for £4.95. It was spacious and everything looked nice and clean, it overlooks the platform where the steam trains are. 8/10

Service - The friendly lady who took my order returned quickly with a good pot of tea, and before long returned again with the cooked breakfast. 8/10

Contents - 2 sausages, 2 bacon, 2 hash browns, 2 fried eggs, tinned tomatoes, beans, toast & butter & pot of tea. 8/10

Presentation - Everything nicely placed on the plate. 8/10

The Food - The sausages were economy but kind of reminded me of school ones which I liked, nicely cooked bacon, good crispy hash browns, perfect fried eggs, large tinned tomato* and good portion of beans. The toast was served whole which I prefer as it is easier to wrap around the bacon or sausage. 8/10

Value for money - A lot of food for your money, you will not leave hungry. 9/10

Veggie option - Yes

Overall - A pleasant surprise and incredibly good value for money. I got the impression that the people working there cared about their customers and their reputation which is always a good thing but often overlooked. 8/10

* I went back recently and it was still good but something was missing?? Then I spotted it, no juicy plum tomato. Not the end of the world but missed all the same!
