I live local so thought should try this pub however it is not great.
We ordered some lunch and it was cold and had no taste to it. I also had to ask for a high chair which seemed to be a effort for the lady and when she put it down it was dirty.
No one asked if we were okay and the staff were very rude and unhelpful.
The building is lovely and beer garden is nice too so looks appealing.
However I would not go here to be honest there are a lot nicer places to eat along the North Norfolk Coast.

Was in the area at lunch time in the week, looking for lunch, The Village from the outside looked promising, so we stopped.
The food was uninspiring, the service poor, the decor inside was shabby chic, we'll it needed redecorating really.
The beer garden looks very attractive, perhaps if we had eaten out there I might have enjoyed it more.
In a nutshell if you are passing...... Keep going.

The Village Inn is a lovely old building and has a lot of character. The gardens are also lovely.
We went to West Runton out of season so the evening we popped in for a meal, it was very quiet in the restaurant.
The restaurant itself is well-appointed and attractively decorated - modern and minimalistic.
I am interested in old buildings and I asked about its history. The person serving did not really know much about it and did not really seem interested - that's a pity as it must have a real story to tell.
The food itself was disappointing and very average. For what we paid we did expect a bit more. My scampi had been over-cooked and was not enjoyable.
If the food was improved it would be such a lovely place to eat.
We will go back to West Runton again but would only go to the Village Inn for a drink.
