Great pub when staying locally in Stiffkey. Booking is recommended as gets busy for food. The food is good. Higher than average in price but standard north Norfolk prices. Dog friendly which is great. Wifi available too. The beer garden is nice in the sunshine. Staff friendly.

The crab was nothing like expected being fairly tasteless. Chips were also a little bland. In comparison to the other pubs we've visited in Norfolk this one is below our average...

Lovely clean accommodation, great location, only half a mile to coastal path and nice and quiet tucked away from the road. Lovely breakfast, staff are very helpful and friendly and the pub offered great food. We could only stay one night but had a relaxing break.
