If I was to help myself to breakfast, I would have not put myself that much, But well enjoyed, and it was hot.

It's a really interesting place but I've just done Christmas lunch here at the suggestion of a friend and the bill for seven adults came to over £500 - that's more than £73 each for just the basic set menu. It wasn't even as though we'd even added lots of drinks to the bill. Put in context that's more than... More

This place is a treasure trove of randomness inside. Interesting building. Very friendly staff. Go with no expectations and enjoy the experience. Food is OK. Service slow. But the experience is a unique one.

We popped in to pick up a menu but didn't return to eat as the smell of wet dog was unbearable! Such a shame as it is a lovely building, decorated well and they have a proper pizza oven.

Incredibly welcoming staff (and dogs). Lovely interior, board games and fire in the cold weather. Reasonably priced, and staff were very accommodating for dietary requirements. Would definitely return :)

A relaxing evening ,a small but good menu, Sunday lunch this is the place to go, good portions of home made food. Not the usual Norfolk grub piled on a plate with loads of vegetables floating in gravy! Polite staff, no attitude, mind you the owners are pleasant intelligent people.. I would recommend

We Visited on a very warm summers evening and therefore were able to appreciate the setting in which this very well kept secret is located. We were one of the first dining guests to arrive (they are also a bed and breakfast) and were greeted at the door by a very lovely lady and two very lovely, friendly dogs (the... More

Freshly made dough and cooked in a stone baked oven. Large portion, but Andrew heated my leftovers for my lunch the next day. :-)
