About us

Welcome to Lime Kiln Kitchen, inspired by our travels, from Cromer to Cape Town. With the eclectic decor ranging from Colonial to Victorian with a nod to Art Deco, and oversized sofas to age old artefacts the design has been a labour of love with the intention of transporting you to faraway places. Enjoy the tranquillity of the open-air deck or the intimacy of the lounge, we hope our unique setting lends itself to an array of occasions.

From cosy afternoons relaxing by the fire with an indulgent afternoon tea to balmy summer mornings on the terrace with a wholesome breakfast and some fizz, for quiet days and holidays – relax, take in the scenery and stay awhile.

We aim to provide you with fresh, tasty food, tantalising drinks and exceptional service for a complete dining experience.

Thetford Garden Centre was first established in 1982 on Lime Kiln Lane in the centre of town – we’re proud of our history and of being a part of Thetford – the Lime Kiln Kitchen is our nod to this. We hope you enjoy your stay.
