The Parson Woodforde
Our restaurant is a lovely open-plan dining room where traditional oak-beams and contemporary furnishings create a harmonious and relaxing ambience. It’s the perfect setting for you to enjoy a romantic dinner, family celebration or night out with friends.
Our Head Chef and his brigade are passionate about food. Every dish on the frequently changing menu is freshly prepared from the finest ingredients – locally sourced wherever possible.
Norfolk is rich in great produce and our kitchen’s philosophy is based on seasonality, provenance and flavour. Game, fish, meat and vegetables are chosen with care daily. We have a close relationship with the finest suppliers in the county and they know that we insist on buying the best. We don’t do run-of-the-mill at The Parson but we do believe in offering great food cooked with passion and flair.
Kids’ meals, vegetarian options and special dietary requirements are all happily catered for. Please advise when making your reservation.

Couldn’t fault any aspect of our Sunday lunch. I always rate my roasts on how good the roast potatoes are and these were fluffy inside and crispy outside! Perfect!
I’f I could have given 7 stars for service I would. The staff there are unbelievable, they’re attentive, friendly but respectful.
A little gem of a pub.
Beautiful food and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Can’t wait to return.
First time there . Everything was stop on . Definitely be returning soon after lockdown 2.
Very good 'specials' board- food was awesome and it felt a safe environment too- well worth a visit
Another fantastic meal, I can’t recommend this place enough. Food amazing, service outstanding!
Service was excellent, food was delicious. Covid safety measures were extremely high.
Highly recommend and will definitely will be returning again.
We had a lovely first meal out since COVID, the staff were very friendly
And accommodating. Hand sanitising, social distancing etc was all very reassuring. Thank you for a great Sunday roast!
Service was great and with a smile and we had a nice table. Food, unfortunately, was not up to its usual standard, had to send back to heat up and looked like it had been sitting for a while as it was dry on top when served and naan bread was burnt underneath so shouldn't have been allowed to come out. We normally have very good food here which is why we return but perhaps it was an off night for the chef. Coffee was lovely.
Great for and service
Enjoyed a very pleasant lunch. Food was excellent and well presented. Staff were pleasant and attentive. Very clean and felt perfectly safe.

Favourite place to eat would recommend. Xxxxxxxxxxxx
Amazing food, fantastic table service. Lovely place
Warm welcome and friendly staff. Service was a bit all over the place as we had to keep asking to be served? We had to ask for our desert order to be taken, another drink and coffee which I was surprised about as we were not allowed to leave the table. I think if we hadn’t of been having a catch up we would of had our bill and left. It wasn’t very busy so not sure why they are not offering these services? Food was very nice and I would defiantly go back and hope the lack of attention was a one off
We had a random spare evening so I booked in the afternoon for an early evening meal.
So pleased we did the ...food was beautiful to the eye and tasted just as good , we have been here before and will definitely be back again. Thank You for a lovely evening
Very comfortable atmosphere in these strange times
A pleasant evening with good quality food, well organised in the current Covid environment. We would definitely return.
Food was average. Signature dish was poor. Too much chilli. Fish pie ok. Service was very slow
Excellent food, staff and very covid safe.
It's always a pleasure to return to the Parson Woodforde.
Well organised. Pleasant staff. Efficient service except difficult to get a bill.
Friends helpful staff, lovely food although expensive. Will definitely be back especially on there deal night.
Enjoyable good food felt safe and would definitely visit again
Selection on starter menu quite limited. Main course selection pretty good and sufficient options for a non-meat eater have a range of choice. Food chosen by us was very good.
Great choice and food once again. Introduced two friends who were also very impressed with the ambiance and service. Top of our to visit restaurants.
Great lunch, very well organised re social distancing. Food was fantastic, great menu selection, wonderful service, the team couldn’t do enough for us.
We will definitely be returning soon, thank you all so much for a great lunch
Overall experience a delight! Extremely Covid safe. We couldn't decide on starter/main or main/dessert, but as mussels were on the specials board as both a starter and a main we both went for the mussels starter. They were large and the chef's sauce was to die for!
The fish of the day and the seafood curry were equally good.
The meal was topped off by cheerful and efficient service.
Good friendly service. My fish and chips was excellent and they were able to adapt to my friend’s request for her meal to be adapted according to her dietary needs. Sat on outside terrace which was very pleasant.
Lovely lunch thank you! Brought my dad for his 82nd birthday and he felt thoroughly comfortable and well looked after! Polite kind staff and delicious food!
Fantastic meal you won’t find a better place to eat
A welcoming smile (hidden by the masks but evident nonetheless) preceded a lovely meal. Thank you
The menu was comprehensive and very tempting. The presentation was excellent and cooked superbly a very enjoyable lunch. So much so we have booked a table with our friends for wed 16/09/20.
It was not our first time ,there been some changes to the menu!! The food was good,my starter was the scallop but only the one which was a let down !! Especially for £11
we felt very welcome and safe in the current environment.
super restaurant, great staff and super food
we're be back later in the month. thank you
The food was the best we have had in Norfolk out of about 10 pubs we’ve eaten in since lockdown lifted. The range of choice whilst still being freshly made was excellent and value very good, for such a range. We would recommend it highly.
If you want good food at a good price served by very attentive staff I highly recommend the Parson Woodforde.
Had a lovely Sunday Lunch we couldn’t fault it.Quick service and all Covid measures in place.Would definitely return.
Excellent meal & service. Plenty of Covid measures in place.
Food was excellent with very friendly staff and good service. Covid taken seriously with stringent measures in place and adhered to. Great place to eat!
