I booked a room here as working in Watton and this was the best deal I found online for my date. After one night I immediately booked ahead to secure a place here for the next month when I am working in the area. For a reasonable price I had a clean, warm, cosy room with ensuite facilities, free wifi,... More

Good choice of dishes at reasonable prices. A good middle of the road serving good food and good wine at reasonable prices. They cater for everyone. A nice place.

This was our first meal here and it was fantastic food! We was a group of 11, we all had nothing but good comments about our meals. The stakes were cooked to perfection! The portions were great too, nobody left feeling hungry. The staff we friendly and very accommodating.

Eat in the conservatory, large portions, every day food at reasonable price, Al a carte was fairly expensive. Friendly staff. Veg/salad with the meat/fish was not quite what was expected, overall average.

It's a shame when a restaurant goes down hill. Sixteen years ago this was a lovely place with good home cooked food and pleasant helpful staff. But lately this has turned in my opinion into probably the worst place to eat in Watton. We booked in for Mother's Day ( My fault for leaving it so late). We specifically requested... More

Came here for a Family Bithday Lunch. Have personally never been here before but other family members have on numerous occasions & highly recommend it. The food was lovely & hot, although found it a little strange that the starter was carrot & coriander soup (set menu) & the choice of dessert was either lemon pudding or carrot (again!) &... More

Having left the establishment after an o.k meal, (set Sunday lunch but NO CHOICE of starter) we were phoned 30 minutes later being accused of scratching the table. We were accused of damaging the table with a knife (which wasn't even sharp... More
