“And relax!” – this “very nice village pub” near the north Norfolk coast does everything it should – including very solidly rated pub grub. The patio looks out to the village church, which adds to the charm of the place.

“Well-above-average pub grub”“nothing too complicated, but all very well done (not to mention tasting delicious)” – is on the menu at this “fab boozer near the north Norfolk coast”. Top Tip: “do choose a table in the pub rather than the conservatory restaurant”.

Handy for the North Norfolk salt marshes, “a very popular gastropub/restaurant” (the former a “bit busy”) with “great views” of the local green. At lunch expect “the standard fish ’n’ chips” and other gastro classics; dinner is bolder.

For 31 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).

"Short uninspiring menu. Basic pub food cooking standards. Salty soup send back. Cod cheeks over cooked, dry, greasy. Far to many covers 190 for just two toilet cubicles and one urinal. Parking field unlit and total darkness. Very undeserving of all the awards. Can’t believe this was cooked by an awarded chef or his team. "

"Excellent pub food with a great atmosphere. Very good service too; quite apart from good service at the table, one of the staff gave us a lift home after our taxi driver wrote off his car on the way to collect us!"

"A great disappointment. The food was not great. For my dessert I ordered a local cheese, from the menu. They served up some other cheese without an explanation or apology. When asked to explain they said they had run out, then offered me an alternative cheese, which they had just taken out of the fridge. And when it came to paying, the web site said they had a special offer in March with 20% off food - don't need to ask, it would be automatic. Except they didn't take off 20% and told me that it didn't apply to the menu I'd ordered from. Not a place I'd visit again. Or recommend. "

"Wonderful service! The staff are young -- very young -- but they have been trained magnificently: so polite, so helpful; terrific! No grating informality, just appealing warm courtesy. The phrase 'pub grub' is inaccurate: the starters aspire to something higher, and achieve a good level of refinement. Ham hock terrine is exquisite. The garden room is attractive, and has a lovely atmosphere."
