Wedding Lunch

We celebrated with a meal at The Mermaids Slipper after my sons wedding. Carol & Richard could not have done more. The meal for 15 was superb. Steaks cooked perfectly, fish full of flavour. I can recommend the creme caramel sublime....Carol looked after us from planning right through to the day...I... read more

A beautiful restaurant that feels more like being in someone's home. Service was top class and food delicious. Couldn't recommend more! :)

Although a little pricey the food was cooked to order and the room was interesting with plenty of space between the tables.

Good atmosphere, very welcoming and friendly staff, Chef appeared to visit every table at the end of each service. Not the cheapest restaurant, ( starters around £7, mains around £18, desserts around £7, wine starting around £18), but the staff were very good, the food is excellent, the surroundings and décor very nice. Perhaps a little expensive for families, but... More

Dropped into Stalham with the family and was intrigued by a quaint building close to the river's edge....turned out to be one of the best restaurants I've ever visited. All prepared on site, the food was fantastic and the welcome was like walking into Cora's home! Sat with a very well made G&T in the lounge, by the massive mirror... More

We went one weekday evening recently. The interior of the building is super; really nice waiting area. Which is good as we were there for quite a while. It is not cheap and we felt the food and drink did not quite live up to the price. Plastics bottles of water from Makro? Surely a no-no. If I am paying... More

Having seen a rather innocuous sandwich board at the roadside in Stalham, we checked out The Mermaid's Slipper online. It looked lovely and decided to visit the next weekend. The next weekend is now here - we duly made a reservation yesterday for 7pm this evening and trotted off to enjoy what we hoped would be the best dining experience... More

Having read the reviews on TripAdvisor we were looking forward to our visit and were not disappointed. Greeted as we arrived, we were a little early but sat in the lovely lounge area with a glass of champagne. Having chosen from the menu, we were taken into the beautiful restaurant. Our Sunday roast was one of the best we've ever... More
