We always try to eat here during our holidays on the Broads as the meals are excellent value and there is so much choice, made even better by the introduction of a specials board.
Sea bass from the board was very good on our first visit, with good sized portions, though on our return four days later several of the special dishes were 'sold out' by 7pm. We were told this was because the menu was due to be changed four days later.
The dessert portions were also considerably smaller on our second visit (it looked as if one tart portion had been cut into two) and we wondered if they were also running low on these. If so, better to have told us and given us the opportunity to choose an alternative.
That said, desserts are considerably cheaper than at most restaurants in the area and are generally very good with plenty of choice.
House wines are good and reasonably priced.
The young staff coped well with a busy service on both our visits and they are courteous and friendly - a credit to the hotel.
For anyone boating on the Broads this is a lovely spot to moor and the restaurant is well worth a visit.
