More about Earsham Street Café

ChefNestling in the premier shopping street in the centre of the historic market town of Bungay and surrounded by many individual and specialist shops, some of which have been established for generations, Earsham Street Café is a 17th Century building bursting with character and enjoying a colourful past, having seen service as an inn with a cock fighting pit, a bookmakers, a bazaar and a traditional tearoom.
