Have been to this establishment many times and usually enjoyed our visit and food but was hugely disappointed a couple of weeks ago when I went there with some friends for a meal and a drink. The Fisherman's Return is certainly popular and was packed with folk at six thirty in the evening. Just managed to get a table and... More

We stayed at the Fisherman's for only one night but wish I could have stayed longer. When we arrived we were led up some temporary stairs as some renovating was going on and I feared the worse. I could not have been so wrong. The room was stunning, so much care and detail has gone into it and it really... More

This was our second holiday in Winterton-On-Sea staying near this pub so we had visited before and had nice food last year. We chose not to take our dogs with us but dogs are welcome inside as well as outside which is really good. The pub always have a specials board but we had reviewed the menu online before we... More

This is a fantastic restaurant, large variety and never had a complaint. Great service. Definitely recommend for a meal or for a watering hole. They have a real fire which is always a winner and allow well behaved dogs.

Food was good, portions, huge, cosy, really atmospheric and popular. The downside was turning up at 5.15pm with a hungry toddler and being told by a brusque young barman what we couldn't order food til 6pm. That's not very family friendly and missing a trick given that there were few if any other eateries in walking distance. A smack in... More

This is a traditional pub on the north Norfolk coast. It also has some of the best food in the area. The staff are great and the place itself has lots of original features. Lovely open fires for the winter, and a friendly welcome for dogs. There is also an area with some games for children. When I last visited... More

Rang midweek to book a table, told they do not take bookings but, even though we required a table for 12 on a Saturday night, if we just turned up it world be fine. We've just been turned away and are now struggling to find alternative for dinner for 12 on a 60th birthday party. Very disappointed and let down.... More
