“Fawlty Towers. I love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

I stayed at the old forge for 2 nights the food was excellent and the service spot on. Colin was an absolute star whose genuine love of life and cooking shone through. Our stay was fantastic and the welcome really made us feel at ease. The food was excellent.
I will certainly be staying at the old forge again. I had the time of my life and my wife loved Colin's culinary skills. The rooms were clean,tidy and functional the bedding was pristine clean.
A throughly enjoyable two days. Reasonably priced although my laptop struggled for a signal. Other than that it was one of the best B+B's I've ever stayed at.

Many thanks

Steve & Joyce

Thank you so much to the lovely hotel owners & their amazing staff. The food was a delight - one of the fish pies I have ever tasted - all freshly prepared by the charasmatic chef/owner who even came out to say hello! A lovely well run family business that made us feel very at home - a credit to Norfolk.

My girlfriend and i stayed here at the end of august, i must say first impressions until final impressions were impeccable! From the day we arrived we were greeted with warmth. We stayed in the smaller of the 3 rooms, for a b'n'b it was more than adequate, anyone who complains about the rooms should remember this is a lovely b'n'b and not the Savoy etc....
The food was and i'm sure is still superb, Colin is an excellent cook and seafood is really his forte! I had Colin's seafood casserole and it was delicious, the puddings if you have any room left were excellent very British homely desserts, fantastic! Anyway if your in this neck of the woods i thoroughly recommend the old forge for a meal and a place to stay! Keep up the good work!

I love sea-food and the old forge did not disapoint. The staff were extremly friendly and the chef was lovely and creative with his dishes which were very tasty and good value for money. Our room was clean and comfortable. Would definetly go back.
