The location of this Pub couldn't be better,with its own Beer garden and moorings is the perfect place to visit during the day,either moor up and watch the world go by or drive to the pub by road and sit in the garden and watch the boats.
They serve good food here at reasonable prices
usual price for a meal £6:25.
Its also located next to the Reedham Railway Swing Bridge,which is a working railway .
it will open for larger boats to pass.
call up on channel VHF14 marine band to speak to the bridge.
Word of warning : Dont moor up here at night if you can help it.
Favorite Dish: Chicken or beef curry, its not over hot and not too spicy and you get a large plate full,cooked to perfection.
They also do the usual Sunday Roasts, steaks etc.
This hotel does a very good Sunday lunch carvery,can highly recommend it,good value
last time we visited it was about £7:25 each
beef was cooked to perfection.
Favorite Dish: Sunday Carvery (cooked to perfection)
Re opened In the middle of July 2010 having been closed for a while This pub is set in a delightful setting and is very popular,with a menu to suit all.
Set right on the water front complete with moorings,nearby is a swimming pool complete with showers for those who don't have them on their boat.a small store nearby for those essentials.
We have spent hours here in the past,driving there by car and having Sunday lunch.
I am glad to see it open again revamped looks really nice.
Favorite Dish: Sunday carvery and Breakfast are my favorites here.
Starting with breakfast ,you can have a choice of what sort of breakfast you want,
cereals or fried.
Sunday Lunch normally consists of Beef,or turkey,lamb with veg fried and boiled potatoes complete with gravy, yum yum.
Basic, but Excellent very good value for money. The selection was simple but everything was very fresh and well cooked.
When visiting such a typically British seaside town, there is only one meal that is suitable for the occasion – Fish ‘n Chips – with mushy peas of course!! This restaurant did not disappoint!
Eat in or take-away. NOT cheap mind you, but exactly what we’d hoped to find!
Favorite Dish: Although mainly a fish restaurant, there is also a varied selection that one would expect to see on the menu such as sausages, burgers and even pizza.
Their informative website says it all really! But from my personal experience I can highly reccommend eating here. Friendly, clean & 'different'. They also have accommodation, but I didn't use this.
A great garden for the summer time, with a well maintained childrens area with climbing frame, swings etc. If you have to take them, a great idea is to eat in the garden and work your way through the food & drinks menu while the kids happily keep themselves amused - hic!!
Favorite Dish: We had a meal from the barbecue - the accompanying salads were excellent - I particularly enjoyed the couscous with orange, chickpeas & tarragon! All the food is fresh & imaginatively prepared & presented. The potato wedges were a gastronomical delight!! None of your small, mass produced efforts either!
Make sure you leave room for a dessert - an excellent choice awaits - (the full menu is on the website!)
I only had a drink here & didn't get the chance to try the food this time. The menu looked inviting with dishes that were fairly unusual & refreshingly off the norm for pub food. There seems to be a lot going on at this pub - take a look at the website!
As it was a sunny afternoon we sat in the garden - a suntrap paved area sheltered from the sea breeze with plenty of comfortable seating, though it was a bit difficult to get seats as it was so busy, obviously a very popular place! The weather helped of course, as did the fact there was a 'beer festival' complete with a marquis serving around 24 different beers & the pub food!
The atmosphere was friendly & relaxing & children seemed welcome too (baby changing facilities in the toilets is always a good sign of this!) Staff were helpful & friendly.
Apart from the loos, I didn't see much of the inside of this place - it seemed quite vast!
I would definitely come here again & hopefully to eat next time. Their excellent website shows the menu in full & loads more info too!
We have watched Byfords grow and develop over our time visiting Norfolk, visited many times and always enjoyed it. Our most recent visit was July 2006 and again we had a lovely meal - "elevenses" on this occasion.
Byfords has grown from a bakery serving coffee to a rather up market (but not stuffy) cafe with a deli attached and the option of bed and breakfast and various evening programmes of meals and entertainment. The rooms are a maze spreading from the pavement tables and chairs through a conservatory to the garden and the old beams (possibly 15th century) and original building mix well with the new.
The food quality is excellent and the choice is impressive. Go for elevenses, buy your picnic goodies in the deli and head to the north Norfolk coast and then return for a candlelit evening meal.
Open 9.00 a.m. - 9.30 p.m. daily except Sunday when the hours are 10.00 a.m. - 9.00 p.m.
Favorite Dish: You have to try the treacle tart with a nut topping - delicious, and very filling and the blackcurrant smoothie is wonderful.
This restaurant in a pub with rooms "the food is what we're all about" is in the middle of the Norfolk countryside, quite difficult to find but well worth the effort as the food is excellent. The ambience is a little "Basil Fawlty" at times but that's part of the charm. Very relaxed, well supported by locals and off the usual tourist routes. It is advisable to book, always for Sunday lunch (ribs of beef plus other choices), usually in the evening, lunchtimes you might just risk turning up. Lunch is from 12.30 p.m. dinner from 7.15 p.m. The food is not the cheapest around but they do offer a special two course lunch for £8.
Favorite Dish: The menu at the Saracen's Head is always different - reflecting the use of local and seasonal produce. The creme brulee is the best I've had in UK, about 8.5/10 which is pretty good!
The King's Head is very welcoming with a warren of rooms and a courtyard so there is plenty of choice for seating. We ate in the conservatory on our last visit and were pleased that the overhead fans were on as it was a warm day.
The bar serves a good range of beers - the local Woodford's "Wherry" is delightful - and has a long and interesting menu.
We received excellent service, particularly as one of our party had a food allergy - nothing was too much trouble to accommodate our needs.
I highly recommend the King's Head in Holt (it's in the main High Street, at the church end).
Favorite Dish: It's difficult to choose a favourite!
The menu includes a good range of the usual pub fare - roast dinner, fish and chips, lasagne etc but also a great selection of more innovative dishes. There are local specialities too which included crab and also samphire (glasswort, delicious) when I last ate there. I wish I'd had room to try the tropical bread and butter pudding.
This is a takeaway fish and chip bar providing excellent, freshly cooked food. As well as fish there is the usual sausages, pies, fizzy drinks etc but I recommend you have straight fish and chips - you can't beat it!
Friendly service, food cooked to order. Great.
Check opening times (big sign in window!) as they vary, especially out of season.
Favorite Dish: Plaice and chips, delicious.
This lovely pub in the village of Horstead near Wroxham was exactly the perfect place for an evening meal. The service and food couldn't have been better, and the portions were very large! There was an extensive menu with many fish choices with the local varieties sure to be fresh and tasty.
Book ahead as this place is very popular, especially in Summer.
Favorite Dish: Being a homesick Yank, I pigged out on delicious spareribs, cole slaw and garlic potatoes. I was in heaven. My husband chose sea bass, and we both enjoyed the delicious dessert we chose.
The restaurant within the pub catered for all age groups. There was a variety of meals to choose from and the protions were just right. We would have gone back again had we been in that area another day; we were so pleased with the sevice, the helpful / polite bar staff.
Favorite Dish: The meals were all typical British menu's and chidren were catered for. I always judge a restaurant by the amount sent back to the kitchen. Nothing went back on our plates, so as far as I am concerned this was a great place to eat for one and all.
The two main problems with this café was the lack of facilities ( the nearest toilets are situated over the bridge to main road, turn right 50 yeards up the road at the end of the lake) and the fact that they left the door open to the elements despite the almost freezing temperature outside. We were sat right next to a radiator with our outdoor clothes on and were still cold.
Favorite Dish: I did enjoy my cottage pie, albeit an unusual variation (the mince was mixed with the mashed potato and it was topped with cheese)
Other items on the menu included All day berakfasts, pizzas, burgers, toasted sandwiches, ploughmans, salads, jacket potatoes, all from £1.50 to £4.50.
The Maids Head is one of the oldest pubs in Stalham, dating back before the car arrived. This was where the stagecoach used to leave for Norwich and London. I have spent many a happy summer hour sitting in the beer garden of this place, having spent the morning shopping in the market behind the pub or poking around in the little shops on the high street. You can get a decent bit of traditional 'pub grub' here, and the garden is fun for the kids - there used to be rabbits and chickens and things out there. I wonder if there still are?
If you are in the area, be sure to pop into the Ingham Swan for a pint of real ale and a bite to eat. This lovely traditional pub was built in the 14th Century and was originally part of Ingham Priory until its destruction under Henry VIII in the 16th Century. The Swan is in a peaceful, unspoilt region of the countryside, a couple of miles from the coast, and also has 5 guest rooms available.
Thickthorn Thervice, sorry Service area... try saying THAT when you've had a few... Sorry, back to...more
I have never been given such dreadful dinners in any other hotel I have stayed in. To say it was...more
