We stayed in the new suite above the extension. The room is great! Huge comfortable bed, sofa and arm chair, big flat screen TV and loads of space! The bathroom is really nice, too. All stylishly decorated and furnished with huge windows (with electric blinds) letting in loads of light. The only point I'd suggest would be a full length...

Very nice welcoming dog and family friendly pub. Food was always delicious and the portions are huge. We visited a few times during our stay in Winterton and it was a good experience every time. The courtyard garden was a suntrap, could have stayed there for hours.

Having travelled around coastal Norfolk sampling a number of pubs offering Norfolk's Woodfords brewery beers and Suffolk's renowned Adnams brewery beers, the beers offered by the Fishermans Return were shockingly bad. Four miles north, in Horsey, the same beers in the Nelsons Head were excellent, fine examples of these two quality breweries. The Fishermans' beers, Woodfords Wherry and Adnams Ghost...

Booked in for a short Autumn break . My first time in Winterton - a pretty coastal village. Made to feel most welcome on arrival and shown to a comfortable en suite room above the pub. Had a Fishermans pie for dinner on first evening. Generous portion and tasty. Breakfast the next morning was equally generous and nicely presented. Would...

Food was very disappointing too much unappealing salad and cardboard chips. Burgers were supposed to be steak burgers but obviously frozen cheap meat rubbish. As the food quite expensive you would expect value for money. Also chicken curry meat was the cheapest cut not breast meat. Could do with reducing portions and increasing quality of food. Shame as pub is...

After a long dog walk on the beach at Winteron we popped in for a light lunch last Sunday. The pub quickly filled up, we enyoyed sandwiches, salad and local beer. The food was decent, generous portion sizes but the biggest plus was that was the most dog friendly pub I have ever visited ( inside and out)! Great chat,...

We returned to Winterton in September and visited the Fishermans a number of times. Overall the food was good apart from one evening when the wifes meal was below standard. I told her to complain but she didn't want a fuss. It seems it depends on your luck who is cooking! The beer remains good tho!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Fishermans Return. A 300 year old brick and flint Freehouse situated in the picturesque unspoilt Norfolk village of Winterton-on-Sea. Long stretches of sandy beaches and beautiful walks are all within a few minutes of the pub. We serve up to five real ales as well as Westons Old Rosie Cider. Our food is freshly prepared and we use locally sourced ingredients where we can. Being close to the sea, fish naturally features prominently on our specials board. Well behaved dogs are most welcome. ... more   less
