With the philosophy of supporting local food suppliers it's no wonder Blue Elephant Craft Brew House was one of the places supported specifically by Mumford & Sons when they did their only Gentlemen of the Road Stopover in Canada to date. I'd only ever popped...More

I came here for dinner because I had heard great things about the place. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to expectations. The Blue Elephant makes several varieties of their own craft beer. I tend to like darker brews myself, so I tried their Devil's Ale,...More

We are sorry to hear that you were not 100% satisfied with your dining experience. Fall will bring more full bodied brews and perhaps you will stop in to give one of those a try.

Dessert was a disappointment. It did not resemble any creme brûlée I've had before. Not good value for what I paid.

Great old house turned brewery. The beer offerings were not knock your socks off great, although the strawberry lager was a nice treat.

Thanks for coming in an giving us a try. Our brews change with the seasons and local ingredients. Maybe you will prefer a fall blend. Come again soon.

We stopped for supper on our way to an event in town and found this mostly by accident - just cruising around looking for something. Wow! It had cooled off a little, so we chose to sit on the patio. Even had it been cloudy,...More

I am sure they serve fresh perch and pickerel as it is plentiful around here especially this time of year. As for the other fish, you would have to contact them directly to find out. Their fish dishes are always very good.

Description
The Blue Elephant offers a number of atmosphere options to make sure you have exactly the experience you're looking for. Do you want a restaurant with a relaxing, homey comfort? Try our Dining Rooms. Looking for a bit more flair in your atmosphere? The Thai Room adds a little spice to your ambiance. Do you want to hit the pub for a relaxing pint? Our Brewhouse has a warm and friendly bar and a selection of delicious fresh-brewed beers. Mouth-Watering Made-In-House Dishes At the Blue Elephant, we want your dining experience to be absolutely perfect. That's one of the reasons we make certain that our entire menu is made-to-order, allowing you to make any tweaks to our recipes to suit dietary restrictions as well as your personal tastes. Excellent Food, Made With Local, Fresh Ingredients Keeping it local is a great way to support the Norfolk economy, but we'd be lying if we said that was the only reason we shop local for our food. Locally grown ingredients means that all of our in-season produce is as fresh as you can get without eating it straight off the plant. By supporting local businesses, we're reaping the benefits: crisper greens, more succulent reds, and an all-around unparallelled local cuisine. NORFOLK'S FIRST, AND ONLY, MICROBREWERY The Blue Elephant Craft Brew House went on tap in September 2012 and the brews are being poured faster than we can brew them! In traditional European fashion, our beer is brewed in small batches with no additives or preservatives using local organic barley, wheat, hops and pure water. Our fresh ales, lagers, pilsners and specialty brews are available on tap in the pub, and for retail sale in our Brew Store. Be sure to look for our rotating selection of seasonal brews throughout the year!
