Always loved this pub having lived in Norfolk for some years and when my Father and Godfather were visiting for a Birdwatching retirement trip! I based us here for the weekend. I knew we’d be driving all over, I just went for somewhere I’d like to stay! For the B&B element, the rooms are really comfortable and presented immaculately… the... More

Having just returned from a two day bed and breakfast stay I am astonished at some of the negative comments. Real ale options and food excellent. Relaxing atmosphere in scenic location. Landlord, and all staff, were most welcoming, friendly and professional.

Winterton-on-Sea, and its surrounding villages and countryside, are well worth a visit. The only real down side to the area is the shocking lack of decent eateries. The Fisherman's Return is one of your three options in the Village. The location is beautiful, it's even possible to walk there with the family from the beach after a day in the... More

This establishment is always busy at lunch & dinner times but only with holiday makers. Under the previous owners it had a 50/50 split of locals and holidays makers and all were happy chatting to each other but the latest landlord goes out of his way to discourage villagers - why we not known. Surely money is money whose ever... More

I've just returned from a 2 night stay at The Fisherman's Return. Excellent standard of accommodation, friendly, helpful staff and management, good quality food. B&B rate very competitive. All in all a very good experience.

I was tempted not to review this Inn, in case it stopped being a secret place! The village is beautiful and quiet. Our room was comfortable and spotlessly clean. We loved the tiny doorway and spiral staircase which led down to breakfast. We found ourselves relaxing in the calm decor and atmosphere. The staff are very welcoming and helpful. The... More

I've been drinking and eating in this pub for the last 20 years every time I come to stay in Winterton. This is only the 2nd time I've stayed, though... but it was fantastic again! Surprisingly spacious room with a large bathroom and huge walk in shower (will definitely try and request this room again next time!) Very clean with... More

Was recommended to us by the campsite we were staying at. We visited on a Wednesday night at 6.30pm, omg was this place busy! We had to wait a while for our food, but it was worth the wait, everything was cooked beautifully and enjoyed by us all. Would definately visit again, the village is lovely also. The only negative...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Fishermans Return. A 300 year old brick and flint Freehouse situated in the picturesque unspoilt Norfolk village of Winterton-on-Sea. Long stretches of sandy beaches and beautiful walks are all within a few minutes of the pub. We serve up to five real ales as well as Westons Old Rosie Cider. Our food is freshly prepared and we use locally sourced ingredients where we can. Being close to the sea, fish naturally features prominently on our specials board. Well behaved dogs are most welcome. ... more   less
