Came here midweek with partner for a meal and to see what it was like and all I can say is am so glad we did. The owner/chef was really friendly and yes it was quiet with only 1 more couple eating, but surely it is best to have a hidden gem like this in the backwaters of rural Norfolk?... More

This was an unexpected pleasure after out for an afternoon in North Norfolk. We saw the sign in the window and had an excellent meal after a very warm welcome from Irina. The surroundings were clean, service was good & very helpful. We returned home to recommend the restaurant to peole we know.
