With its “delightful setting”, “friendly service” and “well-cooked food in good portions” – including “lovely puds” – this cosy pub-with-two-rooms has it all. It’s a family affair, too: chef Ben Handley met his wife and co-owner, Sarah, when they worked together at his parents’ pub in nearby Thornham, while brother Sam is general manager.

“Unusual food combinations” from an “appealing menu with brilliant choices” keep diners happy at this “cosy pub” by a village duck pond. Chef/owner Ben Handley was brought up in a pub at Hunstanton, and has also taken over the Hunworth Bell near Holt.

“Exceptional and high class cuisine, but with a real Norfolk smile… and the booze isn’t bad either!” – that’s the winning formula for this “relaxing and friendly gastropub with a good range of local produce”. “Definitely recommended if you find yourself in north Norfolk!”

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).
