Also part of the Holkham Estate is the Beach Cafe at Wells-next-the-sea where they are extremely dog friendly. They have a K9 club, tether points and waterbowls aplenty. There's even a DIY dog wash which we could not even persuade Peppie to look at! The cafe had a range of Honeybuns snacks but, on the day we visited, there were no gluten free slices of the Sponge cakes on sale.
The lovely sunny evening on Sunday tempted us to try our first evening eating out (that wasn't Nando's!) We found that the Wayford Bridge near Stalham not only had a lovely sunfilled terrace but was dog friendly AND the staff knew about what dishes were or could be made gluten free. J chose a bowl of chips (!), I had Norfolk Ham and eggs and B ate a (huge) rack of ribs with BBQ sauce. As there was also Appletiser and draught Aspall's cider on sale, plus a bowl of water for Peppie, all members of the family had their beverage of choice which was fab.

The Dunes beach cafe at Winterton on Sea had been selling gluten free cakes when we'd popped in to
'check it out' at the weekend but, alas, by the time we returned for serious beach time on Monday it was all gone. So, we can't comment more than that they are aware of gluten free but supply would appear to be variable. Luckily, we had Justin (our bag of goodies) with us so weren't required to do without food. The cafe is massively dog friendly with water bowls all over, loads of tables outside and is frequented by a huge number of dog loving humans.

One further find that, sadly, thwarted us by its late (for us) evening food time was the Walpole Arms at Itteringham. We understand they are dog friendly (and certainly have a lovely looking setting) and offer gluten free food. They're top of our 'To Visit' list for our next foray East into Norfolk.
