Lunch

Delicious seafood for two - we arrived just in time to enjoy before the kitchen closed at 2.30. Staff were delightful. Sat at Nelson's table.

Popped in yesterday with Brother and a very good friend. It really is like stepping back in time viewing Lord Nelsons memorabilia. Be sure to find the amazing little "snug". Adanams ale was well presented and staff very professional. Just acrossed the road is the church were Nelsons father is buried and on display are flags from Nelsons flag ship.... More

We took a Nelson besotted child in search of Nelson's birthplace. This small village pup has loads of Nelson memorabilia well displayed. The staff very friendly and helpful. Only downside was were arrived 15 minutes late for food and so the only thing available was crisps.

We discovered this pub on our long weekend to North Norfolk. It was built in 1637 and very little has changed inside or out - which we loved. Our dog was also welcome so we stopped for a meal. The service was warm and welcoming and not one bit stuffy or snooty. The food was amazing and cost no more... More

Six of us and a dog, arrived at 14.15, we asked if we're too late for food, the barman asked the chef could you ccok for six more. Yes was his reply, what lovely accommodating people. The food was worth waiting for. Delicious home cooked food, we will certainly go there again. Thank you for your extended cooking hours.

It was quite pleasant to see a normal pub in Burnham Market. The food was pub food but good quality and the service pleasant. A restaurant area and a bar area. Television on but quiet with subtitles on so not intrusive. Would definitely return if in town as we hope to be.
