The stately looking former manor house, is set back from the road in acres of grounds surrounded by the beautiful Norfolk countryside. The Restaurant offers an unforgettable dinning experience alongside a traditional bar and large garden area. Head chef Oliver Sanders's seasonal menu draws on the rich Norfolk larder of produce, much of it sourced on the doorstep, like Brancaster molluscs and local farm reared meats using innovative and modern cooking techniques. During the summer holidays the outside bar and BBQ in ‘The Shack’ is in full swing from noon to 8pm. The pub warmly welcomes families and children have their own menu and the safe, enclosed garden and play area is perfect for youngsters to let off steam. The 4 guest bedrooms offer stylish relaxing ensuite accommodation, perfect for a special getaway, overnight stay or weekend break (dog friendly).

    Our first time at this venue, which we’d heard good reports about and we weren’t disappointed. Large quiet garden to enjoy the excellent food and summer solstice evening sunshine. Very friendly staff, providing excellent service. Not the cheapest pub meal, but definitely worth paying a little bit extra. We’ll certainly be back for more.

    Lovely starter (Chilli prawns). One main was very good (Pork chop), the other, although very nice , was quite a small portion. So marked down for quantity and therefore value for money.

    We have eaten here before and the same problems emerge. The food is OK to good but it is a very short menu of somewhat predictable fayre, presented rather plonkily. Service is erratic, perhaps in part due to all the staff being on the junior side. None of this would matter as much were the prices not so high - £30 for an 8oz a steak, being an example. So, it's not bad but could easily be better - meaning I would only recommend it cautiously

    Truly dreadful. My vegetarian starter was fine, my main course was awful. Not cooked. It went back to the kitchen and I ordered the other veggie main course. That was not good either and went back to the kitchen. I don’t think chefs cook now, they just buy stuff in and no sense of whether someone is properly cooked or not. All the puddings are ‘bought in’, nothing is homemade. Disappointing. My husband’s two fish courses were enjoyable. The staff were really pleasant, couldn’t fault them. They made the best of a bad situation.

    We were all very sorry to see that no roast lunches were not on the menu as we have enjoyed them in the past as we live locally so until they are back on the menu we are unlikely to visit again on a sunday and that is when we have our family get togethers

    My wife and I had been for a meal before and decided to take the outlaws for lunch. After our enthusiastic comments about the place, I was a bit concerned that they wouldn’t enjoy the experience. We needn’t have, it was superb and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the food once again was bloody lovely

    Having heard good things went for Bank Holiday lunch. Chose to eat outside. Food overly priced for what was nothing more than basic small plates! The food itself not even passable, skinny fries were just chips, brioche buns very dry, crab on the menu but even delivered well into lunch service! Surroundings nice enough, pleasant staff and dog friendly but need to rethink the valet for money aspect.

    Very noisy due to being seated next to two tables with small children.( We like children but had hoped for a quiet dinner and able to chat.) The spicy tomato sauce overpowered the delicate flavour of the sea food linguine.
