Some friends introduced us to the Chalk and Cheese yesterday for lunch. It is one of the most interesting restaurants I have ever been to and can't wait to go back and stay at the B & B which looks great. It is very difficult to describe this old school house as it is so different and interesting. We weren't... More

Three of us went for lunch and disappointed with the menu. It was very basic and things I can throw together in minutes at home. One of the desserts was packaged crepes and canned fruit. We will probably not return for lunch.

Looked on trip advisor before we went and at their website (detailed menus and prices are not available on their website) we had no idea of cost or if it would have child friendly meals so we're a little apprehensive. When we got there the setup is really querky and pleasant, when we looked at the menu as stated on... More

Very nice pizza and glass of Italian red. Also enjoyed Ploughman's lunch. Good selection of local, and more common, beers.

Really great wood-fired pizzas, lovely staff & a very quirky unique setting. Wouldn't hesitate to visit again next time I'm in Norfolk.

I took my partner here for his 30th birthday to stay and to have a meal in the evening. We were greeted warmly and shown to our room which was spacious, clean and decorated to a lovely high standard. There had been a mix up with the rooms but we were very happy with the one we were given instead... More

We visited the Chalk and Cheese yesterday on our way past. The building itself it incredible! An amazing eclectic collection of decor and a wonderful setting. Sadly the staff and owners don't reflect the quirky style. They lacked personality and we didn't feel welcome at all. The cake was dry. We asked for chocolate cake, and it was in fact... More
