We had the Sunday Roast Special that was not fantastic. There are many great restraunts on Norfolk but this is not one of them.

Went here to have a Birthday Dinner, unfortunately we were seated right next to the stage where there was live entertainment. Couldn't hold a conversation with my companions. If restaurant seating was moved further away from the stage it would have been good

We had dinner here once, food was good and atmosphere was also good. A short drive from our accomodation or a walk.

This would be the worst roast I have eaten. Roast came with mashed potato and not roast potato. Lights dim, could hardly see the meal. Ambience was non existent.

Unfortunately we arrived far too late to order anything from the menu - the only thing we could get was pumpkin with tomato soup. It was very thin and watery and we were not happy chappies.

We had pumpkin and tomato soup, asked for no cream, and it was so delicious. Then had half serve of fish and chips which came with a lovely salad and was enjoyed immensely. Hubby had a steak, he thoroughly enjoyed it with garlic butter (he is gluten free) chips and salad. We'd highly recommend it and enjoy the music too,... More

Although fish was not available the day we went due to fishing difficulties the steak we had was enormous, well cooked and good quality. The chips and salad accompaning was also good.
