This restaurant is advertised as "The Norfolk Broads Best Kept Secret". No wonder - I'm surprised they get any return customers!! We visited here one evening in July 2011 after reading various reviews. The welcome was very good and the girls very sweet and efficient. We had to wait a while for our pre-dinner drink. even though there were only about 10 customers - but that was no problem. I ordered skate in black butter sauce with capers, new potatoes and salad. My husband ordered lamb shank with new potatoes and vegetables. When the food came, the plates were piled high but not particularly attractive. Quantity rather than quality unfortunately. My skate was very overcooked and CHEWY, the salad came without any dressing and the peeled potatoes seemed to be reheated and had a hard surface which was difficult to cut into! The lamb shank was shrunken and chewy and still bleeding in the middle! The vegetables were bland, tasteless and again, appeared as if they had been reheated. My husband asked for mint sauce which arrived tasting very acidic and bitter.
We came to the conclusion that as there had been a carvery the night before, the vegetables had been reheated - that could well be the reason they were bland and were so hard.
We were both very disappointed, particularly as we hardly ate any of it and had to pay over £30 for the privelege of being served a very inferior meal. We intimated our disappointment to one of the girls who said she would pass our comments onto the chef - let's hope he got the message! Hence, we would definitely not recommend this restaurant to anyone. A very bad experience indeed and not one that we would ever wish to repeat.
