    The food although was good we thought was overpriced. Our table was booked for 8pm and by 9.15we had,had 3 courses. Very quick service. The wine was fine, but could have been colder. Staff were lovely.

    An improvement on the previous owners - now more a restaurant than a pub. We were there on a Monday lunchtime which was quiet and not many other diners. The menu was short but interesting and the food well presented and enjoyable. We will go again and look forward to getting to know the staff and offering better.

    We enjoyed a lovely lunch on Easter Sunday. The food was well presented and delicious. We had alerted the restaurant to the fact that we would be celebrating our daughter's birthday a few days early, but they made no mention of it and we felt uncomfortable about reminding them as they were busy.

    The Lawns has had a re-vamp since the last time I was there (pre-Covid) and I think it meets the criteria 'if it ain't broke, don't mend it'. Customers who were enjoying a drink in the garden were constantly walking past our table to get to the bar and, by the end of the evening, we were wishing we'd been allocated a table away from the door as it was turning cool. My sea bass was good but my husband and one of our friends has fish and chips which was overcooked and dry. We all found the menu a bit uninspired - two of us don't like gnocchi which limited our choices as two of the mains came with gnocchi and nowhere near as much choice as on the sample menus on the website. On the plus side, the staff were all very friendly but, as somewhere to eat, I don't think I'll be going again - there are just too many good eating places to choose from in North Norfolk.

    Booked for lunchtime, and eat in the conservatory. Had stuffed lamb breast which was very tasty, presented immaculately and all that I hoped for. But the portion was meagre and I had to ask for a side order of chips to feel in any way satiated. Also I found the desert menu unappealing. However, the ambience and the helpfulness of the young waitress was great.

    From walking in the door everything was just fantastic. The dining area was very relaxing & the staff was so welcoming, absolutely lovely genuine people. We had 3 courses & a perfect bottle of wine was recommended as it went down lovely with my first course the prawns, the flavours with the bread was fantastic. Every course just melted in your mouth & was beautifully presented. I have never eaten lamb that tasted like that, it was just perfectly cooked & my husband said the same about his pork. Then feeling so full we was recommended the pudding & it has to be our favourite we have ever had & there are no words apart from my granddaughters, it was like a party in my mouth. Chef Michael your food was beautiful. For the prices that was charged, how do you do it, certainly one of the best meal experiences. Thank you all so much, we will be back & certainly will be recommending your food & the hotel to everyone.

    There was a great choice of dishes, with a wide selection of meat,fish and vegetables. The flavours were subtle and very tasty, and the presentation excellent. This was gourmet dining at very reasonable prices (three courses for £35). We had dinner there on two consecutive nights, and the difficulty was in deciding what to eat, as the choice was incredible. we shall be returning as soon as possible!

    We had a nice quiet table by the fire. The waitresses was attentive to our needs and questions. The food was nice and tasty. The only thing I would moan about was the triple cooked chips. They was a bit too hard and went cold very quickly so therefore the four of us never quite finished our bowl of chips, which was a shame as when they was first served they had a lovely flavour to them. I certainly wouldn't let this put me off eating here again I possibly wouldn't chose the triple cooked chips again.

    Christmas Day with a friend at The Lawns was superb. The food was fantastic and the service great. Every effort was made by staff to ensure our day was great. The young waiters were polite extremely efficient and the whole team worked well together, they made it feel like it was no effort. The chef received a round of applause, well deserved, for the food. The only issue was the ambience I guess a few nice plant pots and paintings would help. Would highly recommend and come again.
