This boar shouldn't be blue, it should be GOLD! Our favourite waiter can always recommend something delicious for us to match our moods. Simon served us throughout the evening and we enjoyed every minute of his delightful face. This time was a GIANT chicken burger with brie and bacon with the perfect thick-cut crisped but fluffy chips. We will be...

Didn't plan to stay for lunch today, but so glad we did. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating, the food was great and the impeccably mannered Mel was once again just lovely. Excellent all round.

Excellent family meal, four of us and will be returning as this is now our local pub. Good simple food and friendly service. Recommend the pies that they get in not microwaved and crispy pastry happy all round if you don't want anything fancy.

14yrs since my last visit with my parents I thought I'd give it a go with my partner, And boy were we pleasantly surprised. Ordered the chilli chicken for starter and no lie, it is one of the nicest starters I have ever had. My partner had the belly pork and she said tasted lovely if quite fatty (we know...

That's really good to hear! The milkshake waffle desserts are great aren't they? I will pass your kind words on to the staff, it does mean a lot to them. We hope to see you again soon. Kindest regards,

We're very local to the pub and used to go up there on weekdays and weekends. The last time we went we were surprised with the food we received. It was overdone or underdone. Very surprising!! Then the next time we went it was spot on!! Be careful what day you go.

nice place clean and tidy, friendly staff, good food breakfast is very good, lovely and relaxed and a good position to visit the area. only down side the front bedrooms are noisy with the main road could do with double glazing. so ask for a rear one if possible.

Stayed for one night on my own in an extremely large double room which was more like a suite. The location suited my purposes fine and the breakfast was fab. The accommodation was all very fresh, clean and well maintained and I would stay here again if I visit Norwich. Excellent value.
