The first thing that strikes you is the location, then as you walk through the door the warmth of the welcome and the desire to please every customer. Nothing about this place is average, every aspect was excellent including the best full English we have...ever had (days later we were still talking about it) All locally sourced and quality ingredients perfectly cooked and served with a smile.More

We were anticipating hot chocolate, but unfortunately the delivery had not arrived. We did have coffee and cakes. The coffee and walnut cake was just the best. We are on holiday and this was the best cake all week. Service was good and the owner...was very pleasant to talk to. Nice place, right on the water. If you park in the Euro car park take some coins as the signal dropping out makes it difficult or impossible to pay by card.More

Being local and retired, I try most places from Coltishall to Gorleston, Reedham to Wroxham, on a regular basis. I come here every Thursday for breakfast. Often on other days, when my wife can join me, we have lunch together. Friends have joined us on...yet other occasions. We have frequented State and Willow for around two years. The reason is, we look for quality food, quality service and reasonable prices. Staithe and Willow never fail. The owners bend over backwards to accommodate everyones needs. The charm of the place and the staff, invigorates us every time. Whether its Eggs Benedict, English Breakfast, Fish and chips or Sunday roast, sat inside the quaint cottage or outside in the pretty 'bistro style' garden, with or without your dog, you're on a winner here.More
