Welcoming and delious

This restaurant is a delightful place to eat drink and be merry! The welcome was personal we felt as if we were the only guests that mattered. The quality of the food is outstanding and the relaxed atmosphere made for a great evening. We will definitely be visiting again!

Definitely a great place to go if you want a bit of upper class dining. Went with a couple of friends and although it's pricey, the experience was second to none on Stalham certainly. The older waitress was delightful and nothing was too much trouble!

The Mermaids Slipper is an absolute gem. My girlfriend and I love this restaurant with its very personal service and gorgeous menu. We think this may be the best restaurant in Norfolk....a must visit! Special mention to Carol and Richard who always go the extra mile to make us feel special.

i went here with my daughter after reading good reviews on here., and was not disappointed. We were greeted by a lovely lady as we arrived and seated in a very nice reception area in a comfortable settee before we were shown to our table. The food was exquisite and very nicely presented. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for... More

Have been eating here once or twice a year since they opened. Cooking is a good as you will get anywhere, we are always greeted and the setting on a Summer evening is wonderful. A great and sophisticated experience. Prices are well above the local inns, but this is Not a pub.

Absolutely delightful little restaurant. The couple who own this place are clearly passionate about food, as it shows in their care and attention in the meals they provide and the service they give. This place is not cheap, so don't expect to pay pub grub prices. We came here for a special occasion and were well looked after, so worth... More

What a fantastic experience this was. Upon arriving we were greeted and shown into an area with comfy chairs and settees. The lady, I think who’s name was Carole, asked us what we would like to drink and gave us the menus to look at. After being shown to our table we ordered our starter and main meals. We could...

My wife and I went here on the recommendation of our B&B hosts nearby. We were warned that it wouldn't be cheap but you get what you pay for.....they were right. The owners made you feel so welcome and were extremely attentive. The ambience of the restaurant was excellent. Not large portions, but perfectly adequate and being quite rich in... More

My partner and I had received a recommendation to visit having recently moved to the area. We were not disappointed! The venue is compact but has a great atmosphere and is in a lovely location. The staff are very attentive and the chef came round to each table after service to check all was well. The food was first class!... More
