Nice surroundings and food but not great value.

Nicely received and pleasant reception area makes for a welcoming atmosphere. The food is always very well presented and cooked, but as the prices are somewhat high for the area and the menu hardly ever changes you really cant go very often. Portion sizes are on the small side when comparing with... read more

Not only is the food of good quality, the setting comfortable and the atmosphere welcoming, it is the service that was fantastic! The waitresses were so friendly and accommodating, nothing was too much bother and they really made the meal as enjoyable as possible and this has stood out from other places that we have eaten at. If we are... More

We booked here having read good reviews on Tripadvisor but did not know what to expect. From the moment we entered the building we were made to feel most welcome. The service was first class, friendly and efficient. The food was first class, cooked to order and beautifully prepared and presented. We would certainly not hesitate to visit again and... More

Two had Sunday roast beef and two the lamb shank. Everything including the vegetables was cooked to perfection. It was fortunate we had a chance to say hello to the chef and... More

We wanted to celebrate my wife's birthday in style and 'discovered' the Mermaids Slipper by personal recommendation from a loca in North Walsham, verified on TripAdvisor. It was difficult to book a table for the actual birthday due to the winter opening schedule, but the lady I spoke to was really helpful in suggesting an alternative. When we arrived we... More

This was our first visit to the Mermaids Slipper following a recommendation from my brother (whose birthday we were celebrating). It is a very charming venue, full of character, with proprietors and staff who clearly care about making the experience of their customers truly memorable. The food and drink was of the highest standard and the service was excellent. The... More
