A seaside bistro has announced a delicious line-up for its 2023 Christmas afternoon tea. 

The Old Rock Shop Bistro in Cromer's Hamilton Road will return with its festive special from December 1 to January 7.

The venue said in a Facebook post: "Most of the menu was decided back in August - yes, August - but we couldn’t agree with the final item.

"The kitchen team has some very strong views on what constitutes afternoon tea…especially the Christmas edition."

It added: "One of these particularisms is the dessert - every festive tea menu must be finished with a sumptuous and indulgent dessert, in keeping with Christmas of course.

"Finally, after a series of tantrums and borderline fist-fights, we’ve settled on a Bailey’s Chocolate-Malteser Cheesecake to crown our Christmas Afternoon Tea for 2023 and we hope you all enjoy it just as much as we’ve enjoyed planning it!"
