The operators of a planned new tea room say they are keen to open in the next few months.
Helen Greenland of Hemsby and Donna Clarke of Ormesby are looking to open a cafe selling hot and cold food and with outdoor tables in the former Rackham's butchers shop in Wapping, Ormesby St Margaret.
Mrs Greenland, 53, said the pair had worked together at How Hill in the tea rooms there and were excited to be starting their own business serving the community.
She said they would be keeping the butcher's theme in recognition of how long Rackham's had been there - but with a modern twist.
Chiming with tradition they were also looking to call it The Old Butchers Tea Rooms.
