“Stale lunch”
Reviewed May 8, 2014 via mobile

Very disappointed in a place and shall not be returning or recommending.
There was 3 of us for lunch we all were shocked at the very limited choice of bar menu.
We then all ordered sandwiches to which there were only 3 options and were very disappointed by stale unedible bread when we highlighted this we were told it was fresh bread from the bakery but it was so dry and stale non of us could continue past two mouthfuls.
We were told we could have more sandwiches but would have the same issue with the bread and offered 10% discount.
We all ordered the fish and chips and were again disappointed with soggy tasteless fish.
We were then shocked to see we had been charger full price even though we hadn't been able to eat the previous meal.
Very disappointing

“Yummy food”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

We booked a table for our 4th Wedding Anniversary, the choice was good, we both had a lovely starter followed by a main course, didn't have room for desert. We would certainly recommend to anyone,food is sourced locally as well.

“Gorgeous!”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

We nipped in here for an impromptu lunch, and made the most of sitting in the sun. This was our first time here and as we pass the place quite frequently it will not be our last!

My husband had the pork belly (he ALWAYS has that!) and he said it was probably the best he'd had, and I had the fish pie...delicious!

We had the La Roma Pinot Grigio, which was really mellow (sometimes Pinot can be a bit harsh).

We would have stayed longer, but time was not permitting.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming and on a real plus side, made our two dogs feel most welcome.

Would definitely return.

“Easter Sunday Lunch...Lovely”
Reviewed April 22, 2014 via mobile

Lovely starters followed by fantastic roast beef and all the trimmings. There were three other choices of roast and ample further choices on the menu. Freshly done veg and a perfect yorkshire. Great service and a really enjoyable luncheon in very nice surroundings.

“Perfect family Sunday lunch”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

I booked a table for 5, for a family lunch. The service was excellent and attentive. Our Sunday lunch was really superb, very tasty, very hot, good sized portions and well priced. The menu was seasonal and exciting to read.
I would certainly recommend to friends and intend to call again when we are next in Norfolk.
