    Dear customer, beware. Had table booked at 12.30, arrived at 12.30, ordered meal at the bar shortly afterwards. Sat outside in the sun in their lovely garden having drinks with my family. It all looked very promising. After 1 hour and no sign of any meals I went back to the bar to check what was going on, I was faced with confused and disorganised staff and one chef catering for the masses. The lady who served me was unaware of my order despite taking payment for it. I returned back to my table after being fobbed off that is was being plated as we speak, WE RECEIVED OUR MEAL NEARLY 90 MINS LATER than we ordered. The bulk of the staff were young and inexperienced and there was no one leading. The management of this company should be ashamed of themselves and I would have told them this if there had been any present. Overview Has great potential, food was good but badly managed and inexperienced staff made the whole experience painful. I won’t be returning, I could have travelled to Cromer, caught the fish and cooked it myself quicker

    Obviously find beer as always and the pub has been improved and updated recently. The food was good, but small margins like frozen and oven baked chips, rather than proper potatoes keep the score down. We enjoyed our visit and small improvements will move the food from 3 to 4 or maybe 5 stars

    Menu was not very interesting. And food was disappointing. Had the yorkshire with stew and red cabbage - quite dry. Also wine menu seemed to just have quite low end wines - would have been nice to see some better wines available for special occasions. Love the place but wont rush back for the food.

    Excellent service from well trained staff. Roast beef described on menu as rare and it was but made it hard to chew. Roast chicken and vegetables were very good although potatoes too crispy for my preference. Cheesecake dessert was fantastic. Overall we enjoyed our meal and would not hesitate to return.

    The mussels let down the experience, mostly empty shells so the final bill was amended accordingly. Overall I will try other venues before I would go back again.

    Although the beer was nice, the waitress very pleasant, we cannot understand why we sat for nearly an hour waiting for our food, we suggest you either employ a couple of more chef’s or you stop your policy of waiting for your veg to grow or your pig to die before making the necessary item on the menu.

    The roast we had was average. It arrived out in 10 mins which is fairly worrying. It wasn't hot! The sticky toffee pudding wasn't very 'sticky' quite dry. I even questioned where the syrup was. As for the ALE - brilliant. My partner loves his ale so this was a perfect pick for him. He was most impressed!!

    Sadly there were long delays in the service, a mix up on one of the orders and the food just not up to scratch on the night, some of it over-cooked, dry and just not what you’d expect for the price. They were very polite though, receptive to all the feedback, apologetic and adjusted the bill, but overall it was a disappointing evening unfortunately. The high point being the selection of ales and ciders.

    Yet another appalling meal. Staff were working hard to cope with what seemed to be too many food orders (although restaurant was half full) After a 50 minute wait we were served overpriced mediocre food. Chips were cold, gammon steak burnt and battered fish overdone. This is my local pub and I've now suffered three disappointing meals in a row and sadly will not be dining here again. Such a shame as the pub is lovely, the beer tasty but terribly managed.

    Mussels we’re dry, most of the shells were broken, very unpleasant and sent them back. Sea bream was dry and buttered leeks were severed raw and no butter so not as described. Poorly cooked food for the money. Wouldn’t eat here again.

    Booked a table on bank holiday Monday for 1:30 Drove half an hour to get there. Arrived at 1:30 and shown to table. Then told we would have to wait 90 minutes for food. My daughter had to be at work at 4 pm so we couldn’t stay. Ruined our bank holiday lunch we couldn’t find anywhere else to eat But I knew that…..hence why I booked the table! If I wanted to eat at 3 pm I would have booked the table for 3. The booking should not have been accepted.

    Have visited Fur and Feather for many years with my wife,family and friends. It has up until now been amongst our favourite places to visit taking into account we live in Sheringham. Our visit on the 30th of April was very disappointing and for the following reasons. Drinks took ages to arrive. The food was well below what we had come to expect. Mussels, of which there were few, small and in some cases empty shells. The bread was not crusty but thin and white with no taste and disintegrated when put in the sauce. Sea bass was very dry and overcooked. My wife checked up later and found one of the ingredients on the menu she did not receive. The large filled Yorkshire pudding is usually good with plenty of beef - on this occasion it was not. The pie of the day was acceptable. A most disappointing visit which made us feel embarrassed with our friend. The bill came to £140 for 4 people. I’m afraid we will not be using the Fur and Feather again. I hope they get their act together soon.

    Food was good, service a little slow, after placing order no one returned to ask if more drinks were required, only when we had the food did we get asked. There seemed to be enough front of house staff, I wonder whether the kitchen was maybe slightly under staffed? Beer as always was very good, we did wonder why a slice of Orange was added to a G & T? Not seen that before.

    We had Sunday lunch the portions were big with plenty of fresh veggies and a puffy Yorkshire and the service was great. The gravy was mostly inside the Yorkshire pud which isn’t good for people like me who want to put their own on and like a crispy Yorkshire! We ate in the extended part of the pub it was very noisy and cold as the fire doors kept swinging open. I’d go again but ask to seat in the main pub.
