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

We were guests at a wedding at the beginning of October at Narborough Hall, just a few miles from The Horse & Groom, so it was in a perfect place for us. Having stayed there I now don't know why I was a bit dubious, probably because it was so cheap, or should I say in-expensive? My family (3) were... More

Second time we have eaten here the food is good honest food not covered in herbs and spices to make it tast of something it isn't , the portions are big so make sure you are hungry and no mortgage needed. We chatted to the owners and all the veg are home grown at there allotment. We will go back... More

Not a great place to stay but okay for one night, which is about all. The first hurdle is to check in; the pub only opens during the lunch period and from 6.30pm at night and not at all on a Monday ; so to check in you need to call them and then wait on the pavement outside whilst... More

Came here as a last minute booking through Expedia. The photos online do not do the place justice as it looked old and frumpy advertised online but it's clean, tidy and well kept to see in person. We arrived and they didn't actually have a booking for us but sorted a room straight away (I think because we only booked... More
