We booked for 3pm and were unable to find a parking space on site. Judging by the inability to book to stay it is obviously an extremely popular pub and sitting in the restaurant gazing seaward it is easy to see why. We enjoyed a seafood platter which was excellent and attentive staff made the experience memorable. Maybe one day we will be able to stay for a couple of days!

My friend and l shared the seafood platter, it was amazing, excellent quality and more than the two of us could eat. The oysters were so tasty. If you love seafood then this is for you. I would certainly go back again and recommend it to friends.

While fresh fish dishes eaten by myself were very pleasant the linguine eaten by my partner was overpriced for the amount of seafood in the dish. Very few prawns and moderate amount of cockles (squid was not delivered that day apparently).

The setting is beautiful and the staff were very welcoming. The menu sounded wonderful and we were very excited, but it was very subpar. Neither dish had much flavour or finesse. It was such a shame as we came on a recommendation and our little toddler loved it. She was able to run around freely, although we did notice carpet very dirty. We told a lovely Spanish lady who worked there and she took money off our bill which was kind, but sadly we won’t be rushing back.

Really looking forward to seafood platter after reading reviews. However we were very disappointed with the platter. The majority of the fish tasted either very dry or had been frozen. It certainly did not taste fresh.

Not as good as we were expecting, our table service was good but several of the waiting staff were scruffy and one non communicative. Deserts disappointing, my 9 year old grand-daughter can make a better brownie.

One of the gems along the Norfolk coastline with regards to location and now outside the peak season the car park able to accommodate our visit. (Not the case in previous weeks)
The simple meal of Fried Cod and Chunky chips and peas was the best I have had in any of our Norfolk restaurants this year.
The batter being light and crisp and the fish fresh and full of taste, the chips perfectly fried and the peas full of true pea flavour.
A most common meal choice but excellently cooked and presented,
Well done.

A very last minute booking and was fortunate enough to grab a super table. Service was impeccable, friendly and informative (sorry I wish I had asked his name but I believe he was a new member of staff!) we had made a choice on the menu for our main and he suggested we may change our minds when we heard the special and that was absolutely correct!

Meal was delicious.

All in all a really lovely experience and will return again very soon
