We went mainly for the live music on a Friday evening and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. The food choices are limited but everything was well cooked, filling and good value.

We enjoyed a few beers whilst talking to the friendly staff and there was even a very talented younge lady singing one afternoon. All this plus the novelty that your on a... More

The Albatros deserves to be high in the list of reviews because it is so different and should be celebrated. We visited on a very chilly day in November after a lovely walk at Holkham Bay. We braved the deck at first to enjoy the lovely views as dusk descended, then retreated to the warm and cosy interior. Between us... More

The perfect place to warm up on a very cold and Sunday afternoon. The pancakes were amazing and it was lovely to be able to have a drink and listen to the live music.

A pub in a boat. We visited one Saturday night in October. The real ale was kept well and we enjoyed supping our pints on board the ship while a 3 piece live band entertained us. I had the meatballs and mash to eat as well which was very nice. Something a bit different from the norm, go visit you... More

We love the albatross - especially for a drink at sunset! They serve all kinds of drinks and specialise in Dutch pancakes with a variety of toppings and fillings. They also do amazing mussels when in season!

Went with family on Sunday early evening with the family and we all enjoyed our meals. The service and atmosphere was really good and we are definitely going to go again. I was told they often have music there and can only assume this would be a really fun time. How often do the children get to eat on an... More
