“Stunning food, and a true personal touch from owners Jacqui and Kevin Mangeolle” inspires nothing but rapturous reviews for their restaurant-with-rooms occupying a former eighteenth-century coaching inn. “Husband and wife are both still on top of their game”: service is “relaxed” and “friendly” and Kevin’s cuisine (incorporating locally landed fish and lobster, plus game from local estates) is “understated but just lovely”: “a gastronomic delight!”

“We go once or twice a year and it never disappoints” – Kevin Mangeolle’s “smart” and “characterful” converted coaching inn (which he runs with wife Jacki) delivers “heaven on a plate” for the good number who report on it. It’s a “tiny”, “very intimate” dining room, and the cuisine – be it from the prix fixe menus or tasting option – “continues to grow in quality, providing real food to taste and savour”. “You are looked after in a really friendly informed way too, which allows everyone to thoroughly enjoy the experience in their own way”.

Kevin Mangeolles’s “exceptional and memorable” cuisine – some of “the best in Norfolk” – is matched with “perfectly pitched” service at this “very friendly and approachable” old coaching inn, on the edge of town, which he runs with wife Jacki. “We stayed the night and the head chef doubled as a bellboy!”

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
