I visited with a friend on sunday after putting up the christmas tree and shopping, we had no reservation and upon entering were greeted warmly, they were busy but a table was found and ready for us before we had sat down with our drink, Our starter was just delicious and the carvery was just mouthwatering, lovely selection of veggies, homemade yorkshires and roasties and not an aunt bessies in sight! We couldn't decide on which meat to have and were offered a bit of everything, the beef was so tender as was the pork, and the turkey just set off our Christmas themed day, definitely a 5* meal and will definitely be returning with family in the next few weeks! Well Done to the staff and management who were all so friendly and cheery!

A cold and windy evening was tempered by the wonderfully warm and genuinely inviting hospitality from the staff of the Winch, Steely Dan on the audio was the prefect accompaniment to an excellently kept pint of Black Sheep . The atmosphere was cosy and the aroma from the Carvery became irresistible.
The roasts and accompaniments were all well presented and served piping hot as were the serving plates which is always well received. The food itself was top drawer, incredibly tasty and more than generous in portion, the comforting pudding menu was delightful and well executed.

I have taken my elderly mother here twice and have had excellent, friendly service with a very good menu at a reasonable price! Have really enjoyed eating here (weekdays) and can highly recommend this nice pub.

It has been many years and many owners since I visited The Sportsman which is now know as The Winch. We thought we would give it a try and we were pleasantly surprised. It is situated on the A10 on the way to Downham Market from King's Lynn and has a large car park so no problem parking and extremely easy to find.
The welcome as we walked in was pleasant and after ordering drinks we were taken to our table and handed menus. After a reasonable time for all of us to choose our meal we were asked by a charming girl what we would like. She was efficient and even though one of our party decided to change parts of a set meal, she said it was not a problem. (We have often been told in other restaurants that the set meals cannot be altered and if we want something different it will cost extra)
The meals arrived in very good time and quite honestly I could not fault it.
All in all a very pleasant evening and my hat goes off to the owners for making a pleasant venue during these hard times.. 1st class and will be going back,,
