Booked online, given the table we wanted. Outstanding service and conversation with all the waitresses without it being intrusive. Food was extremely tasty and good portions. Ambiance was perfect. Would highly recommend for very good food in a relaxed atmosphere.

We briefly visited Norfolk to visit some friends, they took us to their favourite restaurant, it was cozy and quite quiet at the time (1pm on a Friday) I ordered the crab salad which was yummy, Wild Sea trout and their chocolate desert. Everything was perfect including our amazing company. The menu is seasonal, and you can tell that they... More

Excellent food in a pleasant, historic setting right opposite King's Lynn Minster. Super service at a reasonable price. Quite limited menu but this is often a good thing and everything is cooked to order using local produce wherever possible

A faultless restaurant experience from start to finish. Friendly professional service, fantastic food in a lovely comfortable restaurant with sensible pricing. This place is serious about seasonality and providence and the menu reflects this both with food and drink. The local bottle Norfolk Ale was lovely. I had three courses and all were delicious and faultless, proper restaurant food but... More

We have been, as a family, on a number of occasions and yet to be disappointed. The friendly and focused service always leads to absolutely fantastic food. There is always something, on all three courses, that hits the spot perfectly and that's something I often find not to be the case elsewhere. Some days I want a burger (the home... More

We were in King's Lynn for the weekend and this place was recommended by our hotel. And how happy were we?! A very appealing menu of seasonal and locally sourced dishes. Everything we had was delicious. The staff were friendly and genuinely cared about what they were doing. The only (slight) negative was the decor/ambience. Lots of hard surfaces make... More

We were lucky enough to get a table today for Father's Day lunch, Roast Pork was on the menu. It arrived looking delicious. The pork was succulent laying on top of cabbage, a huge Yorkshire pudding, crunchy roast potatoes, apple sauce, a dish of mixed veg with carrots, French beans and fennel. The gravy was amazing, I had extra it... More

Beautiful food and very helpful staff. Fine dining at good price. The menu and specials change to suit the season and what ingredients they get. We were a little worried when we arrived due to it being empty when we arrived but decided to take the plunge. I'm so glad we did as it soon filled up and there was... More
