we stayed for 2 night in June so we could attend our Nephews wedding. Upon arrival we couldn't get parked at all, we had been advised that parking was not an issue. A note pinned on the door asked us to ring a mobile number to be checked in, which we did and the manager attended to let us in.... More

We stayed in room 1 on night of 25th and in summary an excellent value for money accommodation. A hearty breakfast and a wonderfully comfortable bed (but not suitable for anyone over 6'' 2' (which we weren't by a good few inches:). Ample parking across the road and within 2min walk of town centre. Will stay there again if in... More

Enjoyed three lovely days here, an ideal base fore exploring Norfolk. The room was very comfortable, lovely and clean with a large corner shower in the bathroom. Everyone was really friendly and we were made to feel really welcome. We didn't eat in the restaurant just had breakfast and if that's anything to go by you won't go hungry. The... More

Apologies for taking so long to write this.. We stayed for one night in August last year, visiting family in the area. We booked through one of the comparison websites a couple of weeks in advance and added a note requesting a gluten free breakfast. Within an hour I had a personal text from Trudy and Richard stating they had... More

The Horse and Groom is in a decent location for exploring north Norfolk and The Wash. Really it's a restaurant with rooms available and is very quaint, being very old. If you want square rooms that all look the same then this is not for you. The Inn is rustic, quirky, but very clean. And you can't fault the service... More

Having stayed at the "Horse and Groom" on many occasions now i'm in a position to say that all my stays, it's four now, have been good experiences, and represents good value for money. The food is great at all times and plenty of it, all local produce to boot. Particularly recommend the Sunday "carvery" and the full English breakfast.

We were an extended family group in town for a funeral. We stayed over on a Friday night after the funeral, we had dinner on the Friday and breakfast on Saturday. The welcome is wonderfully warm from Trudie - even the locals using the bar are very welcoming. I can vouch for the quality of the Guinness too. We had... More

This personal experience is as a pub and restaurant, rather than as a hotel, due to living locally. The simple establishment offers a true personal welcome, with good ales and generous portions for the meals. Popular locally for Sunday Lunch, at a very fair price and the option for 'steak on a stone' meals (subject to advance notice) is an... More
