“Best pub/restaurant with great atmosphere we have been to as a family!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

My family and I holidayed in Hemsby from 26/7/14 - 2/8/14. This pub was recommended to us, and for good reason. We went for early evening dinner. The staff were immediately welcoming and very friendly and helpful.
With a large back garden with a great wooden pirate ship for my 2 children to play on, they were kept busy. There was a lot of choice on the menu all reasonably priced. The food came out hot and looking fresh as they are all made to order. The portion sizes were very good too.
With a lot of seating inside and out, over the week we ate in there 4/7 days and never had a problem with finding somewhere to sit. Each time we arrived around 6.30pm.
They had regular evening entertainment which was fun for all.
Situated by the beach it is ideal to nip in for a quick bite and a drink or to make an evening of it.
I give it a big 5*'s and we will definitely be visiting it again next year.

Ate here after a trip to the beach on a very warm day, we sat in the beer garden alongside kids play area, My son played away while we waited on food. Service was good and food was yummy. The staff we encountered were very helpful and friendly. Will go again when in the area

“Very welcoming.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

We recently visited Hemsby and stumbled on the Lacon Arms. On arriving we had a very warm welcome from a young man who seemed genuinely pleased to greet us, I ordered the beef and Guinness pie which was very nice, we also had lasagna and scampi, all meals arrived in no time with friendly service.
Would definitely go again.

“nice pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

we arrived at 2.15 and were looking to have lunch on a saturday afternoon, only to find they stop cooking at 2.30 until 5.30.
This was ok as just had a few drinks before we ordered food. maybe better if they cooked all day being that close to the beach and in a prime spot, obviously people eat at different times of day. I had the cheese chicken pasta which was well presented and very tasty, my partner had gammon which again was very nice. The only fault we had was the cooking times being rigid, also saw a few others come in wanting food but went to other places rather than wait 2 or so hours for them to re-open the kitchen.

“Nice pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

A nice pub to visit. Staff are friendly. Prices are decent. Food looks nice never had a meal here but what I have seen it looks nice also decent prices. On a nice day you can watch the world go by. On the day we was here they had a wedding reception. A decent pint.
