Our View

Facing a lovely common where the village cricket team still plays during the summer, this renovated 17th-century pub retains plenty of original charm, down to the croquet lawn and large beer garden. In the colder months, roaring fires and a pint of ale are just the tonic after a long walk or before a seasonal meal from the set and a la carte menus. Combining classic English cooking with global influences, the menu makes good use of fresh, seasonal and local produce and has good gluten free choices. There's a set price menu for lunch and a la carte menu for dinner. Brancaster mussels in white wine with garlic bread could precede roasted duck breast, griottine cherry sauce and roasted sweet potato. Irish coffee meringue is a tasty way to finish. Look out for the live music events and monthly quiz nights.

About the area

Discover Norfolk

The North Norfolk Coast is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and probably the finest of its kind in Europe. Here you’ll find a string of quaint villages and small towns – Holkham, Wells-next-the-Sea and Cley next the Sea are 21st-century favourites, while Sheringham and Cromer are classic examples of a good old-fashioned seaside resort where grand Victorian hotels look out to sea. Further round the coast you'll find Great Yarmouth, one of the most popular resorts in the UK and packed full of amusements, shops and seashore entertainment. And let's not forget Norwich, the region's only city.

Norfolk prides itself on its wealth of historic houses, the most famous being Sandringham, where Her Majesty the Queen and her family spend Christmas. Many of Norfolk’s towns have a particular charm and a strong sense of community. The quiet market towns of Fakenham and Swaffham are prime examples, as well as Thetford, with its popular museum focusing on the TV comedy series Dad’s Army which was filmed in the area.
