Hired a day boat from Horning with friends. Decided to go up the broads all the way to Coltishall as hadn't been beyond Wroxham before. Nearly turned back as didn't expect a great pub like this. Sat outside overlooking the river and timed it so the wait wasn't too long. Staff were friendly and helpful, the Ale was good and the food was delicious- the Fish and Chips were more like Whale and Chips!! Turns out Sundays kids eat free in the winter so a little bonus for us with 2 kids! Would have liked some crayons and paper for the kids but all in all a good experience.

Hubby and I visited this pub whilst staying in Coltishall for the weekend. We spent a very nice couple of hours sitting in the sunshine watching the fishermen while having a couple of drinks. The pub itself is nicely decorated offering a selection of bitters. We didn't have a meal here but there were plenty of people who were eating. We hadn't been to this pub before and it is in an idyllic setting looking onto the river with a nice green area but I would imagine during the summer months it woudl be heaving with people. The bar staff were friendly but the ducks were indifferent to the bread that was being offered!
