As I was taking work colleague and his wife for a thank you meal I chose this restaurant based on the fact that it was close to where they live and on the reviews I had read on Trip Advisor. Having had great difficulty in booking - tried to book from the website and having not received a reply after... More

Our visit to the Mermaids Slipper was a highlight for my Wife and I and the two friends we took there for a "Thank you" meal for all their help when moving into the area. We certainly chose the right place to do so because right from being welcomed warmly into the sitting room right through to being helped with... More

My partner first took me to the Mermaids Slipper on my birthday in December last year, we were treated with the up most care and the food we had was absolutely exquisite. So much so, my partner treated me for a wonderful valentines meal. We mentioned to the host that we had recently gotten engaged so after a wonderful meal,... More

I had been wondering about visiting this place for two years, after regularly dog-walking past it. I finally found the excuse, in taking a guest. Absolutely top-notch - a very high-level restaurant tucked away where you would least expect it. No, it's not cheap... but the service and food were absolutely faultless. Now I'm looking for another good excuse to... More

We found this delightful restaurant by accident and were made to feel extremely welcome and at home despite not booking. The menu was not exhaustive but there was plenty of variety and the portion sizes were generous. The quality and presentation of the food was first class. We couldn't fault it. The toffee pudding was out of this world!!! 😍

What a treasure, visited this lovely restaurant for the first time and loved every minute. The ambience of the restaurant was excellent. We weren't rushed at all and felt very relaxed. We had the scallops for starters which were lovely. The fillet steak was divine and cooked to perfection as was the medallions of pork. There was nothing bad at... More

After long anticipating our family meal here we left feeling a little dazzled by the astronomical prices, nearly £17 for a chicken breast! Was this chicken made of gold? Prices i wouldnt mind paying if i werent dining in Stalham. However, cost aside we got home and the following day two of us woke up and spent the following day... More

Visited here last Saturday evening with my husband. We had a wonderful meal. The restaurant is very cute and tastefully decorated . The lady that served us was very sweet and friendly. Cannot fault anything, the food was wonderful and a lovely glass of champagne. The sticky toffee pudding was the best I have tasted. The Chef visits every table... More

Had an incredible Sunday roast at this little hidden gem - one of the best we've ever had. Incredibly friendly service and a picturesque location. Well worth a visit.

This is just a delightful restaurant - certainly by some way the nicest place we found to eat in the North Broads, and we found some good ones. The building is gorgeous with exposed beams, an attractive muted colour scheme and lots of tasteful pictures, vases and the like. We were greeted by name on arrival (we'd reserved, as you... More
