We went to the restaurant here for lunch on the recommendation of a friend who lives locally. This is an hotel and restaurant in a lovely building set in a beautiful deer park. The restaurant is a bit quirky with modern artwork and neon signs in an historical building. Staff were efficient, pleasant and helpful. The food was very good.... More

Visited yesterday lunchtime and had the best meal out we've had in a long time. Had the pork chops cooked over the fire in the dining room. Very unusual to see and lovely flavour. The other options looked great too. Excellent service from friendly staff. The views over the parkland are beautiful - worth a visit just for that. Make... More

Me and my boyfriend went here for our anniversary on a Saturday evening for dinner. The setting is beautiful and on arrival there were lots of deers in the field which made the setting even more beautiful. We arrived about an hour before our table as we wanted to sit in the bar area and have some drinks. This part... More

Was recommend by our host for an evening meal or lunch visit. Must have been based on reputation not experience! Beautiful grounds with herds of deer but the inside of the pub is desperately in need of a refurbished. If that's too much then at least make sure it's clean! Teenage bar staff with little customer service skills or knowledge... More

Stayed recently in the family rooms, based out in the courtyard. Our rooms were really lovely, very clean and comfortable, however I would have preferred a TV in the room . There was a sitting room where we attempted to sit, but you get people passing through on a fairly regular basis, so it's not very peaceful . The staff... More

Don't be fooled by some reviews into thinking this is all about the restaurant. It's an excellent Norfolk country pub, far from the madding crowd and brim-full with character and joyfully outrageous artworks. Good ales, wines and cracking bar snacks at unsilly prices. Nice to sit outdoors and take in the timeless views but the lure of the bar drew... More

This is a return visit: The setting is a tranquil deer park . There were 5 of us, plus a dog that was made welcome. Lots of outside seating for a sunny day. Inside the dinning rooms are spacious. The food is GOOD. Cod Cheeks melting crunchy mmmmm. The crackling is just what you want it to be, rich and... More
