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...

A captive trade due to lovely location being the only pub in the area which has resulted in an owner who displays a rude, greedy, arrogant and dismissive manner to his customers. Over priced Mediocre pub grub.....poor service and menu too large for the kitchen to cope with. I recommend you get a fish supper from the take away shop... More

The pub is set in a lovely village and close to a wonderful sandy beach, the food was good but chips seemed to be served with most things, and you could not book a table. To access the rooms we had to use the wooden fire escape as the near vertical stairs/ladder were impossible for us and the dog to... More

This pub is a little gem just 1 mile north of Hemsby. It would appear that this is one of those pubs that you stumble across by accident as it is in the middle of the village and away from the main road, however, it is always quite busy. The food is great, the prices are great and so is... More

I only phoned to ask what would be the best time to call in for a meal and was told "how can I possibly know how many people are going to walk through the door tonight?" I said well I guess you are there most of the time and might be able to suggest when it is quieter and when... More

This out of the way pub is well worth finding. We took a chance and didn't book a room in advance and they were very accommodating. Our room was great with a large bathroom all tastefully decorated and spotless. We had a superb dinner and a wide choice for breakfast even though we were the only guests.

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
