Very enjoyable family meal

Eight of us enjoyed a very enjoyable evening. The restaurant was family, gluten free & vegetarian friendly too. The settling was nice, food delicious and there was a good atmosphere.

Here for a work related dinner with a party of twelve. We made it easy for them by pre-ordering from a limited menu; but this did not help. Starters consistently disappointing, mains wrong, sent back, wrong again, etc. They were not busy, we now understand why. By far the poorest experience in nearly nine months in central Norfolk.

We visited for an evening meal in the restaurant with family who were treating us to a meal for a Christmas present. We went during mid week. There was a large function in the back area of the pub but we seemed to be the only other people eating there. The staff were friendly and helpful. We were sat on... More

We went here (as in previous years) for our wedding anniversary meal. The manager and waitress were attentive to us and the food was excellent. I had a fillet steak which was the best I've had. Definitely recommend and will go back again.

Found this lovely country pub (with rooms which was a surprise) near to Weston Park Golf Club / The Dinosaur Park. A roaring fire, excellent range of beers and good menu was ideal after a cold round of golf with friends. Generous portions of Cod & Chips all round served by very friendly staff. They have a large bar area... More

I never normally write reviews but went here last night for a family meal, great service and food was fantastic so thought time was right to give these guys some recognition. The menu was varied and we all tried different dishes, none disappointed. The pub has a great country feel and good atmosphere, the staff were real friendly too. A... More

We first went to the Parson christmas 2014 and it has a great atmosphere and the food was wholesome, then we went again in the summer and sat on the terrace for lunch, the menu was limited to one page, when I asked if there was another menu they said no, I think this might have just been their daytime...

After spending the last 25 years supporting this local pub I was incredibly disappointed with a horrendous meal whereby my mother complained to the waitress. She was unbelievably rude and this ended in my 50 year old mum being followed outside by a very large man, being shouted and sworn at! Definitely will not be going back. Such a shame

TheParsonWoodforde, Manager at The Parson Woodforde, responded to this review

The Parson Team would like to respond to this by highlighting that this customer made derogatory and inappropriate comments to the Front of House team, so much so that a by-standing customer ( the man referred to was not a Staff member ) who overheard & felt obliged to step in and support the waitress, who was devastated and left...
