This pub had been recommended by a friend and we visited on a Friday lunchtime. The place was full of locals which is always a good sign. My wife went for the lamb shank and I had the scampi. Both were large portions, beautifully cooked and presented. The service was good and the bar staff very friendly and helpful. Nice atmosphere in the pub too. I would certainly eat here again.

I liked this place. Although the decor is smart bistro, it's a curious mix of old-style local pub and high-class dining. And it works. Can't think of another place quite like this. Wide range of coffees, food superb. Stylish eating space. Roomy. Both up-to-date and old-fashioned. A lovely experience. Thoroughly recommended.

Took the opportunity for a snack lunch.

Gastropub located in Market Square of a rural town in North Norfolk

Menu was quite limited with standard fodder on offer.

Servings were not over generous...Service was very poor.
Three Staff were working the Bar/Restaurant but for long periods of time there was no one avilable to serve. Far from being discreet the Staff were in a back room seeing to their own lunch!

Could do better would be my report

Great menu range, portions were huge, re the quality my partners was excellent, I'd say mine was good to average. Nice beer. Service was excellent, we liked the informal and friendly ambience but as another reviewer said, it is more a smart pub than a restaurant.
