We always make a point of eating here when we are in Yarmouth, What we like especially about Merrivale is how friendly the staff are and how, even after 18 months away, Chris the proprietor still remembered us and had a good chat with us....More

Serving since 1903, and still delivering excellent service. This tea room has an historic charm and the nicest of staff. Cakes were delicious and the hot chocolate was more of a dessert than drink! Highly recommended.
