Overlooking the green, this village pub-with-rooms was acquired by East Anglia’s Chestnut Group in 2022. Some reports this year suggest that “things have started to slip” under the new regime, and that what “used to be a favourite” is “no longer quite as special as it once was”, but “at its best, the food is excellent” still (and, despite the critiques, its locally sourced pub classics have so far retained their Bib Gourmand).

This “very welcoming pub” is the most commented-on of those on the north Norfolk coast (perhaps due to its recent ‘Bib Gourmand’) and though not super-foodie “serves hearty meals and enjoys a buzzy atmosphere”. “The ingredients are selected from local suppliers, cooked with skill, and served by a young, efficient and enthusiastic team.” In June 2022, it was acquired by East Anglian pub and restaurant company The Chestnut Group.

“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”.

"Changed hands since our last visit and the food was definitely not as good as before. Some rather odd menu items, and not particularly well done. Tables very close together so it felt a bit as though you were shoulder to shoulder with other diners. We probably won't go back."
