We popped in for lunch today and it was excellent top range pub grub. I had delicious fish and chips and my husband a wonderful ploughman's full of 'real' ham and a huge selection of cheese. We did not really need it, but pigged out on pud. Mine was a lemon - could not taste it - cake with clotted... More

One of the best restaurants in the area! The food is excellent and the chef even made me a specially made sticky toffee pudding just how I liked it. Also serve the best mocktails here out of every restaurant I've ever visited. My favourite by far!

Stayed on a Groupon deal as we live locally. Did not upgrade from coach house rooms but they were fine. Shabby chic sort of decor. Not much room but sufficient and we obviously had a large bathroom designed for disabled folk. No wi-fi and minimal phone signal but those of us that live here know this is normal for Norfolk!...

We stayed for one night over the bank holiday weekend and overall it was a lovely night and a nice break. The staff are not just friendly and approachable but go our of their way to help you where ever they can. The bar in the evening has a buzz to it and serve both Hendricks and Bombay Gin, a... More

'Oh no', we thought when we read your review and how we wish you had mentioned your concerns at the time, as we would have sorted out the disaster of a cleaner letting the side down - we work as a team, so it may well have been any one of us but we would be more than happy to... More

Lovely setting for country house hotel. Excellent dining combined with local pub type atmosphere. Good for weekend stay. Roaring log fires and hard working staff. Stayed in main house which was very comfortable, no wardrobes but everything else ok for weekend. Individualism and setting more than made up for any niggles. Well done. Would recommend

Thank you for your feedback - and for the high score. We aim for 5 stars always so we take on board your helpful comments. The issue of a 'missing' wardrobe is a puzzling one. We have 'conventional' wardrobes in two of our 9 bedrooms; hanging space (not covered) in all 5 coach rooms and then two eccentric, it seems,... More

We visited Oxborough Hall towards the end of last year and passed by the Bedingfield Arms and said we must call in at some point when we return to the area. It then came up on the groupon voucher and we have just returned. We loved the decor of the bar and restaurant very lovingly restored with fantastic food, excellent... More

Many thanks for your review rating your stay as Excellent and all the other complimentary mentions referring to the standard of our food, service, staff, atmosphere and more! The shower is a standard electric shower which is poor in comparison of the more common rainforest power showers that are appearing in everyone's homes. The plus side of the standard electric...

Went to The Bedingfeld Arms for a two-night stay on a deal through Wowcher. Of course you can never be sure what you'll find or whether you might be treated differently because you're on a cut price deal. I had checked the reviews and I have to report that, if anything, they under-estimate this accomodation. Our stay was perfect in... More
