Police are renewing an appeal for information after a tea room in Holt was broken into.
The Owl Tea Rooms was targeted by thieves between 4.30pm on Sunday, January 20 and 8am on Monday, January 21.
Suspects broke into the premises in White Lion Street by smashing a window in Church Street and climbing through.
They stole about £200, including petty cash, tips, and a charity box.
The business is run by Ben Philo and Claudia Pollinger, who said it was, arguably, the oldest tea room in Norfolk.
