My girlfriend and I had a meal here prior to heading off to Thursford Christmas Spectacular. What can I say, not only were the hosts exceptionally friendly, their food was amazing. The chef Colin is an absolute God in the kitchen, superb food, we enjoyed it so much that we haven't stopped talking about it since. The lobster casserole was...

We booked all three rooms for a two night family stay which was like having our own cottage being able to use the lounge downstairs and the location was perfect for The Thursford Christmas Spectacular. Colin greeted us warmly and said if there was anything we needed, to let him know. The rooms were very cosy and the beds comfortable,...

Our evening meal was very very good. Breakfast and room average. What I really would have liked when we left was a " hope you enjoyed your stay, and that everything was alright". All we got was just leave your keys on the counter. Felt owner had a rather Basit Fawlty attitude to guests.

Well it's nice to be back. If you like seafood, then this is definitely the place to come. Had the Fruits de Mer this time and all I can say is spectacular. Lobster, Oysters, Caviar, Langoustines, Clams, Prawns etc... For those who do not like seafood, the restaurant does Steak or Lamb Shank and others. Colin is an excellent host/chef...

We stayed here for 1 night. The room was of a poor standard. Very small, musty smelling en suite, very noisy from the main road all night. Breakfast was average. However the restaurant serves some of the nicest seafood. Very nicely presented, although is quite expensive. Would not recommend to stay here though, as really not a comfortable stay.

Had a weekend break in Norfolk and stayed here for two nights. Despite the room being very small (No 1), the en suite ( if you can call it an en suite?!) which was actually just a toilet and a shower in a small cupboard like area was quite disgusting. It smelt awful and the shower head was mouldy so...

We booked in on a Monday night when the restaurant was closed! Nevertheless we were made to feel very welcome. Mine host advised where we could go to eat and that he would be happy to serve us with coffee and drinks on our return. The rooms were immaculately clean and comfortable and attractively decorated. Coffee facilities were provided. The...

Stayed whilst going to a family wedding nearby. B & B inexpensive, and quite acceptable. Room was small but clean. Décor a little unexciting but we got what we paid for, a comfy bed and a breakfast that was filling. The staff were friendly and the owner has a wicked sense of humour. Couldn't really fault it. Didn't get chance...

We had eaten dinner here before so knew food was good but needed a place to stay overnight.Some of the reviews were negative so we lowered our expectations but provided you can accept the small bedroom which is reflected in the price it is all there and was adequate for an overnight stay. The dinner was excellent and Colin is...
