A very busy and great food pub. Our last day so we decided to have posh fish and chips which was whole lobster yummy. Had a nosy and the food and menu looks fab, wish we'd found it earlier. Parking in the village car park is best and only across the road. We did get in a pickle with that... More

Absolutely love this pub and have been going here for ages. The menu is always excellent and currently the chef is tremendous. The belly pork is so tasty as is the crab salad. What's brilliant is the way the balance is just right between operating as a good pub and being a great eatery - clever management is the answer!... More

Delicious real ale, we particularly like the local yetmans ale. Efficient and friendly service. We had the Sunday roast which was fantastic. Generous portions, great flavours

I've been lucky enough to go here twice this summer and both times have enjoyed lovely meals. Four of our party of 6 had the Sunday roast lunch which was delicious and there was plenty of it. Best crackling with pork I can ever remember. We also had an enormous fish and chips and fish cakes with a side of... More

On the last night of our holiday my wife and I treated ourselves to a meal at the Bell. Pre-booking is essential as the restaurant is always busy, and there was a minor hiccup in that the telephone number on the card they gave us (when earlier we had attempted to eat there without booking) was unattainable, The restaurant and...

The staff were excellent in every way. Food scrumptious, 4 Sunday roasts & name , all perfection. Very nice ambience. Only slight criticism: the ladies loo very small & pokey. One of our party had a walking from & found it difficult to manoeuvre, but we understand.

We have stayed in Wiveton for a few days and found this wonderful place. Wiveton Bell concentrates on quality. The menu is not large so it can provide quality The beer - "Wherry" was just to my taste so thankfully where we are staying is a pleasant walk away. We would definitely recommend a return visit-surprise surprise I am here... More

The Wiveton Bell is situated in the quite hamlet of Wiveton just a mile from the Coastal resorts of Blakeney and Cley. Opposite the Church and overlooking the village green the Bell has a sunny south facing garden with comfortable wicker seating perfect on a summers day. With an AA Rosette and awarded a Michelin Inspectors Favourite in 2016, the Bell is a well known foodie destination but at the same time as popular with locals popping in for a pint. The warmst warmest of welcomes awaits you along with everything you would expect from a traditional english Pub. Four local ales, dogs welcome in the bar, childrens menu, roaring fire in winter, candle lit by night..... the Bell has lots to offer ..so much so you might just want to stay the night. See web site for further details of the Pub and our six new stylish rooms.
