Last day of our holiday on the broads and this is still the perfect place for the occasion. A warm welcome in a comfortable seating area before going through to the restaurant for beautifully cooked and presented food. The Mermaid's Slipper is a real treat and we look forward to what is becoming our annual visit.

Holidaying on the Norfolk Broads is very relaxed and informal. What a wonderful treat to find this restaurant -'a real gem' in a sea of ordinary pub grub eating places. Luckily we pre booked to secure a table, being met by the delightful Carol was a real treat and made us feel really special. A lovely opportunity to 'dress up'... More

Discovered by chance whilst on a boating holiday. A very short walk from Richardson's boatyard so readily accessible by boaters. Need to book. Beautifully restored building including part of an old lime kiln. Excellent service and ambience. Food - stunningly good. Thoroughly recommend it for a memorable "special night out".

On a Norfolk Broads boating trip and we happened to moor up right outside The Mermaids Slipper. We left the kids with their grand parents and had an amazing meal. Excellent service, wonderful food, delightful atmosphere. Highly recommended. Book in advance!

My favourite place, superb food, excellent service, very warm welcome from Carole, Richard and Staff. Spotlessly clean. Couldn't recommend more. Love it.Not local but have been many times when visiting Family in the area. Never been disappointed yet.

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 cannot thank her enough for giving that bit extra....the... More
