My husband and I have just been to the Kestrel for lunch, and will not be returning. A great disappointment. The staff were run off their feet but still managed to be very cheerful, friendly and efficient. I would give them marks of 110% . Our problem was with the food this time around. My husband asked for his meal... More

Wish now I had got her name as she was lovely and deserves a mention (think she had glasses on, long curly dark hair tied back). We were stuck for somewhere to eat when I remembered the Kestrel. Went along and the four of us had a delightful meal. No grumbles whatsoever apart from the charming waitress doing a super... More

stopped here at 5 to 12 for lunch finally left after after 1.30. As a result we ran out of time to do things at our destination. Service completely shambolic in what is to be fair a busy pub. There just seemed to be no organisation anywhere. Shame because the food is not bad!

We booked a night here online. To break our journey from Norfolk to Scotland. The room (11) was all we could ask for. Recpetion was friendly, the log fires were well alight, the bar was welcoming and the food great. We had a great experience and booked again for our return trip from Scotland to Norfolk. Not quite the same... More

Just returned from a nice visit from the Kestrel, the food was really nice and our waiter Mikeo was really friendly and nothing was a problem for him, we usually visit after Countryside Live at the Show-ground and will be back again next year.

We have stayed at the 'Kestrel' previously, so in a way we knew what to expect. We had travelled from North Wales non stop - the check in was fuss free, the room we were given was the family room, really nice and individual, beams and all. First thing to do once unpacked was to have a beer or two... More

I stayed here last night for 1 night. The pub itself is very traditional inside with beams that were also in the rooms and a very warm and cosy feel. The rooms were very well appointed with good facilities and were very inkeeping with the age of the building. Good tea and coffee facilities and a large flat screen tv.... More

We have been going to the Kestral for several years and have never been disappointed. The food is good pub food and very good value, not home cooked but good with a menu that should please all but the really fussy. A varied selection of drinks are available and everything can be put on a tab until you leave. The... More
