Marriott’s Warehouse is thought to have been built in its present form by local merchant Thomas Clayborne in around 1580 as a warehouse for corn, salt and wine, although the site was a riverside quay by 1300 and some of the oldest timbers in the building date back to this time. King’s Lynn was an important trading port in the medieval Hanseatic League, which provided a major link between merchants and towns around the North Sea and the Baltic for several centuries. King’s Lynn still has a number of historic buildings connected with that trade. Marriott’s Warehouse was restored in the late 1990s and is a Grade II listed building.
At Marriott’s Warehouse Cafe and Restaurant we are passionate about good fresh local food, the wonderful waterfront and heritage of King’s Lynn as well as good company and great service.Open from 10am every day, we’re the perfect place for meals, snacks and drinks, with a strong emphasis on the wealth and variety of local meat, fish and seasonal produce.
Enjoy a meal or a snack in the ground-floor cafe/restaurant, soak up the sun on our quay-side outdoor tables or take in the stunning views across the river from the our first-floor bar area.
We work in conjunction with the Trustees of the building, who maintain an exhibition area on the first floor, focused on the town’s historic buildings.The second floor is an ideal venue for meetings, lectures and functions in King’s Lynn.
Even if you live locally, you might still be surprised by the beautiful old building and its incredible views. For those visiting from further afield, Marriott’s Warehouse provides an ideal base for exploring the old town of King’s Lynn. We look forward to seeing you soon.
