Yummy!!

Visited the broads over May half term. This was the only restaurant I booked in advance and I am so glad I did. We are a family of fish lovers. Four of us visited all having starters and mains. We had dressed crab, baked crab and 2 had mackerel pate. Mains were skate, seabass with walnut pesto x 2... read more

This is a lovely restaurant, serving good local food, well cooked. When we are next in Horning, we will visit again, for sure, a pleasant, bright atmosphere, where we were able to enjoy our meal at our leisure. To be honest, I'm not much of a fan of fish . . .I don't dislike it, it's just that I would... More

Our first visit to this establishment on 16/5/15, after reading the reviews on TA . Cost £65.80 for three course each and two glasses of white wine. The starter dressed crab with chilli and ginger was very good but didn't get a hint of chilli or ginger. White wine very good and well chilled . Mains Sea Bass fillets with... More

Of our 7 nights on The Norfolk Broads we decided to spend two of them at The Bure RIver Cottage Restaurant, we booked ahead which was essential as both nights were fully booked. No surprise either as the food, as per many other reviews, was all outstanding, fish at its best for starter and main, then a dessert to die... More

Have been meaning to try this restaurant for a year or so not and got round to it yesterday - we should not have left it so long! If only they opened at lunchtime as well.The menu is quite extensive and written on large blackboards, presumably because the availability of fish varies so quickly. The variety of starters, mains and... More

A great Fish Restaurant in the heart of Horning. If you like fish you'll love it here. Well worth a visit. Light and airy restaurant, good selection choice on the menu, friendly knowledgeable staff and a nice ambience. Starters of scallops, Salsa Verde & Cromer Crab Salad were lovely followed by Pan Fried Skate Wing with Capers & a Lemon... More

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 shine through. So from booking (easy and friendly) to... 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
