Ate here for the first time last week. The food was gorgeous and so fresh. The menu changes regularly. This is not the usual pub food, but something on a different level. Will return soon.

Wow this pub is such a surprise. Diss is not enriched with the best pubs, but this is one I visit regularly and introduce to others as often as I can. It has proper keg beer, super staff, lovely open fire in the winter, great...feel of a real country Norfolk pub. But the food is why I keep going back. It is inventive, tasty and great value. Truly don't hesitate to try it, you will be hooked!More

Very rewarding lunchtime visit to this great little pub , tucked away in the quiet corner of Diss. Location is great , and access/parking is very easy. Warm welcome , lovely open log fire , and the place was spotlessly clean. The lunchtime menu was...light , and reasonably priced - with some real variety and inventiveness. Menu changes every day , and my particular choice of ‘Surf and Turf’ was so obviously fresh and lively , together with real care taken over both the presentation , and the cooking itself. Cutlery , plates etc were also spotless. I was very impressed with the efficiency and helpfulness of the staff. Beer glasses were likewise spotless , and the wonderfully fresh Spitfire beer I had was poured straight from the barrel. It really doesn’t get much better than this. I admire their stance as a lunchtime food only venue - with evenings as a proper local community pub. The atmosphere is positive and upbeat , and free of the more modern distractions of more commercially-based enterprises. Altogether a superb visit , and a venue I would have no hesitation in recommending. Well done.More

Nice open bar and friendly service. Good layout so you can stand at the bar and socialise, or sit at more private tables. Really liked this bar and would come back here as a good location and easy to park here.

Our favourite place in Diss (and surrounding ) restaurants. Fabulous Sunday lunch. Husband is bit of a 'foodie' & it's his favourite too.

The best food I have eaten in ages! I could have chosen any of the lunches but opted for the goats cheese parcels with walnut and pear salad. It was delicious and just the right amount for lunch. My partner had the seafood chowder which...was equally delicious and very reasonably priced. We are definitely returning soon!More

Another wonderful roast, we had 1 beef and 3 chicken. Amazing cauliflower purée with the chicken, would love more! High quality meat and huge yorkies, beef meltingly tender, and delicious perfectly cooked veg. As always very friendly helpful staff and always welcoming with the dog....We were so stuffed we couldn’t manage dessert but the chilled cherry rice pudding sounded wonderful. Perfect area for dog friendly families and a good walk on fair green after.More
