“great pub to treat yourself”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

we decided to have a short break here as it allows dogs. Got an excellent deal with room and food... brilliant value. Breakfast was bought to our room each day as we wanted a lay in. food is fab, extensive wine list and very accommodating staff. rooms are small and do have thin walls but they are priced accordingly. will be back.

Whenever we visit Norfolk we will always pop to The Orange Tree for a drink by the fire, a pub lunch or over New Year, dinner in the restaurant. The saffron poached lobster claw starter was light and delicate, whilst the Thai monk fish main course was unusual and perfectly cooked. Despite being incredibly full the temptation of The Fairground pudding was too much and didn't disappoint! As much a feast for the eyes, the mini toffee apples, home made marshmallows and freshly fried doughnuts were particular highlights!

After being recommend to stay at this pub by a friend, we booked a 1 night stay on Boxing Day and were not disappointed.

The owners have just got everything spot on from the accommodation (double room with en-suite wet room/shower room, flat screen TV, tea and coffee making facilities, home made biscuits and water await you when you arrive) the first class individually cooked breakfasts are just fabulous, and the service and food in the restaurant is first class.

We are fussy and used to staying in expensive hotels but this place very well deserves the Pub of The Year Award which it has gained, and our stay was worth ever penny!

I highly recommend a stay here, but would advise to book early!

We went to the Orange Tree this January for dinner and what dinner it was. The restaurant has been redecorated, and seems to have a cosier atmosphere. The meal we had was excellent and the staff just perfect, so much so that we congratulated the management on the staff.
cant wait to return, definately one of the best on the North Norfolk coast and will be hard to find any better.

We recently celebrated our parents golden wedding anniversary at The Orange Tree. We had a few problems getting the time for the table sorted out with the venue but once we arrived things could not have been better. The staff were friendly and attentive all evening and helped to make it a really special evening. The food was superb and when we adjourned to the bar the atmosphere was warm and friendly.

We booked 5 rooms and everyone who stayed said the rooms were lovely and comfortable. The breakfast the following morning was also excellent with a great choice.

We would thoroughly recommend this venie for anyone looking for somewhere to enjoy a special occasion or just a very relaxed weekend.

Had a bar meal for 2 on tue and it was the worst meal we have ever had.My wife had pan fried sardines which had the texture of boil in the bag cat food while i had mussells and hand cut chunky fries .After eating 3/4 of them i was horrified to find one contained nothing but a grey sludge .This can only be put down to poor standards in the kitchen as you would never prepare mussells that are open .We told the waitress and she apologised but we expected the manager to come and see us.The evening was completely spoilt . Never again .BEWARE
