Unique surrounding, pleasant lunch; very fresh and tasty crab salad. Always welcoming to the walking group with or without the dogs and they don't mind the muddy boots.

Didn't eat there, so no comment about food, but the gardens was busy & welcoming on a summer's evening. Friendly staff.

Friendly staff and good food. Not a huge menu which is a good thing in some ways as it is freshly cooked. And as for the crab sandwich...A pile of crab meat on a thick slice of bread topped by two claws...and some salad.

Loved the food here, lovely fresh vegetables. The building is steeped in history. When a mistake happened with the order the waitress immediately corrected the situation and gave us excellent service.

This makes a nice location for an evening meal or a quick lunch. The menu covers light lunches - sandwiches etc. And also allows for a full meal with started, main and pudding. I had sausage and mash which was quite exceptional. Starters re quite generous and make alight meal in themselves.

We only went to collect a couple of bottles of Nelson's Blood rum but stopped in for lunch, glad I did. Real homemade chips, proper bread bread for the sandwiches and great whitebait all presented really well. Washed down with a perfectly kept pint of Wherry. The guy who served us was a gent, very good at his job. It... More

Our B&B hosts recommenced we visit the Lord Nelson to try the famous tipple, Nelsons Blood. Yes I did, yes it's wonderful and yes I will go back for more. We ate there too and the food and service was great. Friendly locals and a great setting. A must visit if you're around the North Norfolk area.
