Visited the Parson Woodforde on the spur of the moment on Monday 15th September. Special Monday lunch and dinner menu at fixed price (£11.95 for two courses and £14.95) for three courses. The choice was very good with several options for each course. I had Norfolk Black Turkey pie with vegetables and Creme Brulee and my husband had steak (£1.95... More

Friendly greeting and hospitality from owner/manager, who really makes an effort to make you feel relaxed, and accommodated. The food was lovely, especially the dessert, good service too. We will return! Ps try the chocolate moose for desert!

Popped in for a meal on Saturday lunchtime, a friendly greeting and shown the menu whilst ordering a drink, it was easy to choose from and contained some delicious sounding dishes of localy sourced produce, the menu described each meal in detail including the contents of each. The owner was in process of doing BBQ outside which we were offered... More

After booking the table for sunday lunch for my daughters birthday I was upbeat to say the least at such short notice to get a table ! Couldn't fault the staff, very helpful, the manager(owner ?) was larger than life, to the point of being over familiar. Unlike the food !! Late, cold, and certainly not worth what I paid,... More

After a very long wait of atleast 45mins for our food to arrive,, I wish I'd not bothered! It was awful, beef was full of fat and gristle, parsnips, carrots and broccoli, unedible,, they would have been more edible if they had just been pulled from the ground raw,,, there's Al Dente and brick,,,, even my husband had a hard...

Perfectly good food, simple and served very well. Good service and a great guest ale to boot. Very good Espresso too - best I've had in a while.

Very disappointing! Was looking forward to Sunday lunch here with 15 other people after I had attended a wedding the day before. Some friends of mine though had stayed in the pub the night before and had been treated so appallingly by the manager - which included the manager removing personal items from a room they had booked and giving...

I can only offer our deepest apologies for the weekend and for the way the situation was handled. We have sent emails the following day to the guests involved however we have been waiting for the online booking agent to contact us to let us know the outcome and what they intend to do as they have admitted responsibility and...

Lovely two course meal, great setting with a large clean and nicely presented garden. Great choice of ale and wine, plus freshly cooked food with good local company. Will always come again just wished I lived closer!! :)

We had lunch at The Parson Woodforde last Sunday, a stylish and immaculate establishment in a peaceful, rural setting. The menu was varied to suit all tastes, with the emphasis on fresh, local produce. The dishes we chose were all excellent and beautifully presented. Do not expect your average scampi and chips type of menu. This is far superior and... More
