It doesn't get better than this

This in my opinion is the best fish restaurant in Norfolk / Suffolk we tried the sole bay restaurant in Southwold this year which we thought was amazing but it isn’t in the same league as this establishment.

Had been meaning to go here for months but difficult to moor in Horning. Very popular for a Thursday night not just with locals. Fish is de rigueur, not sure if I saw anything for carnivores! Well served, tasty, and fresh, top quality fish and seafood - which has its price, but worth it. Good choice of wine, pleasant and... More

We are fish lovers and having read the fantastic reviews this restaurant has, we chose to dine there with friends recently. With the abundance of fish in this area we were surprised at the London-style prices for small portions. My husband had skate and it was less than half the size one would expect, and indeed, one would get in... More

I had a very enjoyable evening meal in the restaurant. Everything about it was brilliant, the food, atmosphere, service and wine! Don't go here if you don't like fish or seafood as there is no other choice but if you do, or even think you might then definitely go! Fantastic food!

Visited recently with a lady who is very special to me and we had a super evening. I didn't post a review after my first visit as it was such a lovely evening that I needed to ensure that my judgement wasn't clouded because of who I was with. Visited again two weeks ago and the second visit was equally... More

On our final night (Saturday) in Norfolk we travelled towards the broads and what a great choice of restaurant we made. We fancied fish and what better place than the Bure River Cottage Restaurant in Horning. Really, really friendly staff with the owners working hard along side. Great food and wine added too great staff and service always equals a... More

This is a really good fish restaurant-the menu is fantastic with so much really fresh fish to choose from. Excellent wines and a happy atmosphere. Staff are attentive but not overly so - just right To make it 5*plus it would be perfect if the fish was accompanied just by a green salad and chips -the veg and potatoes were... More

As a Kiwi I adore fish it conjures up in my mind memories of my childhood cooking freshly speared flounder over a fire on the beach with minimal fuss but simple love and attention to a fresh product of nature. Well look no further if your thing is fish here is the bench mark for excellence for seafood. Carnivores be... More

Excellent restaurant in the small and quiet town of Horning. With my colleague we ordered fish, both dishes were excellent, sides are also excellent. My best culinary experience so far in Norfolk.
