My husband and I were up in Fakenham and decided to have a spot of lunch on a Thursday. It was Market Day in the town and there was a lovely buzzing atmosphere. The pub had four ales and the chap nehind the bar said they also had a cask of cider (I thought about it, but it being over 7% we decided it was a bit too strong with our lunch). My husband had a Wherry and I had a half, a lovely ale that's local apparently. The food was typically pub sourced, but I liked the fact they stated they used free range eggs and the meats were local - I thinkt his theme of sourcing to local suppliers is a really great idea, especially in a town that seems as close knit as Fakenham. The food was wonderful, I had the burger, with chips and coleslaw and relish - very tasty and my husband had the sausage, egg, chips and beans. it was delicious and very filling - great value for money. I especially liked the fact that the Coleslaw was homemade on site - very seldom to establishments take taime out to chop their own cabbage, onions and carrots - it makes such a difference to that awful plastic stuff that many pubs and eatng places serve to their customers. The atmosphere in the pub was welcoming, warm and friendly. The food was great - there were lots of people in eating and there seemded to be a fair few regulars coming and going. Very lovely experience, next time we're up this way with the family we are going to do a steak night!
