Fresh fish with no frills

It's to my discredit that despite living no more than 20 minutes drive away, It's taken me nearly 6 years to visit this restaurant. Wished I'd found it earlier. As detailed by many others...fish and shellfish only on the menu (no bad thing). Simply prepared food, allowing the freshest fish to... read more

This restaurant is a real find. The fish is fresh and fabulous. Gorgeous fresh veggies and the meal was full of flavour. Nothing is too much trouble and the staff are excellent. I can highly recommend this restaurant, best fish I have ever eaten!

We found this little restaurant via Trip Adviser and the reviews are certainly true! We were greeted by a wonderfully welcoming and professional staff and immediately seated (despite being 15 early!). Since we were celebrating we had a chilled bottle of bubbly and the staff entered into the spirit of our evening. The crab was Devine, as were the scallops.... More

The fish is fresh and cooked just right. I tried the lobster which was good but a tad expensive. The owner of the restaurant is very friendly and so are the staff. Book to avoid disappointment

This really is an exceptional restaurant, the extensive fish menu offers great variety. The fish is of the highest quality and cooked expertly without fussy or faddish additions, and very reasonably priced. We have eaten here a number of times and have never been disappointed, we will of course be returning. I should also mention the excellent friendly service

A last minute decision to eat out . My partner and I moved to Norfolk last year and have passed this restarant a number of times when walking around Horning. We turned up on a Friday evening with no reservation, the lovely gentlemen greeted us and said they could fit us in in 30 mins. We returned and was shown... More

Couldn't have been happier with this restaurant. We hadn't booked but there were tables available. We were made to feel very welcome, given a nice table by the window, our coats were taken, drinks provided. The menu was a range of fish starters and mains. Waiting time was reasonable as everything was cooked fresh. Waiting staff were very attentive and... More

We went here last night for our last meal of our holiday on the Norfolk Broads & it was delicious! Please note it is all fish on the menu! There was no child's menu but they were more than happy to do the fish goujons off the starter menu as a child's main course. Between the rest of us we... More

Four of us had dinner on the recommendation of the owner of The New Inn in Horning. We were not disappointed. We each had different starters and different main courses and all agreed it was something special. Special mention for the Dover Sole (off the bone) and the Moules, both superb. If you are visiting Horning don`t miss it.
