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!”
“Always a wonderful all-round experience” – “this family-run, old coaching inn, on the edge of town, is in the perfect location”, “the ambience is friendly and intimate”, “staff are welcoming and attentive without being intrusive”, and chef-owner Kevin Mangeolles provides “fantastic cuisine to savour” (including the option of a 9-course tasting menu). “Comfortable rooms” if you stay too.
“Chef-owner Kevin Mangeolles and his wife run a very efficient ship” (and an extremely “charming” one too) at this “marvellous” 18th-century coaching inn, which offers “unexpectedly fine dining” (with “lots of local produce”) in “lovely”, remote surroundings. If you wish to stray beyond the more standard set menus, there is a 9-course tasting option.
“The coastal leader in north Norfolk”; Kevin Magneolle’s “very-out-of-the-way” 18th-century coaching inn matches up his well-honed culinary skills with “memorable” locally-sourced ingredients and “charming” service; “simple but comfortable accommodation” too.
