Well what can I say but AMAZING! I am very hard to please, but this place ticked all of the boxes. The service was impeccable and the food the best I have ever had.

A lovely restaurant, an oasis of calm beside the Broads on a warm summer's evening. We enjoyed pre-dinner drinks in the comfortable easy chairs and sofas, whilst Caro took our food orders. We were shortly ushered through to the delightful restaurant, which feels classy but not overly formal. The meals were beautifully presented and delicious. A great evening, would recommend.

We began our evening in the drawing room where we took our pre-dinner drinks and perused the menu in very comfortable surroundings. Our table was next to large windows overlooking the water and the meal itself did not disappoint, with every course delicious and of a high standard. Drinks were sensibly priced and there was only praise for our dining... More

Maybe a little more gravy/jus reqd but we are quibbling. The... More

This fab little gem is hidden on the marina in Stalham. We stumbled across it looking for a good meal and were not disappointed! The steaks were melt in the mouth and the duck was so tender and delicious. The staff are friendly and professional and the building is beautiful. Old oak beams and open Flint walls. This was not...

firstly the venue is very idyllic to entice you in. you may feel a little like you need to whisper when walk through to the lounge area however this feeling lifts when the lovely hostess welcomes you in with a beaming smile, she then invites you to sit on the extremely comfortable sofas set in a country cottage style lounge...

Welcoming, homely and personal service up to the standard of a goof London eaterie. The lamb shank was beautifully cooked and very tasty and the veg cooked just perfectly. Our waitress was friendly and efficient and the atmosphere in the dining room was relaxed and calm.

Beautiful setting and a fabulous meal. We were made to feel very special from the moment we entered the restaurant. We were a party of six who had had a wonderful week on the Broads.All the meals were beautifully cooked and the service was second to none. Definitely worth a visit but book early.
