Good food quite pricey
Visited the restaurant with 10 friends at lunchtime on August 5th 2011. Attention was good, wait not too long and the food when it arrived was hot and tasty.

family friendly
visited march 2010, great spot, looks a bit tired from the outside, but well worth a visit, fantastic food, great beer, perfect for children. all the staff were helpful, friendly and accomodating for a larger family with children. Even supplied colouring paper and crayons for the little one. Has a little games room out the back, will definitely revisit on one of our regular tips to norfolk.

After checking this site last year & ever intrepid it's only 8 miles from home we thought we would just see for ourselves, we have now returned 5 times having had good food from a varied selection, served hot by friendly/polite staff. what more could you want.

Give it a go.
Good food and service. Don't know what pub the others were talking about! Friendly, smiley staff that got on well with each other and the customers. Give the place a go... you will be pleased with the food and enjoy the company of the staff!

More overpriced Blandness
Revisited pub since change of owner with high hopes, wrong! Tasteless pork that you could spit peas through, as my dear old Mum would say, imploding detachable pastry that had to be reduced to a paste with gravy before it would stick to the fork yet reasonable veg. Will not be returning

December 06 - best to avoid
Re-visited this pub as had eaten there several times a year over the last 6 years. New owners still have just about the same menu, so you get used of what you can eat ... or not! Besides the very old looking salad we all had and the cold onion rings, the steak dishes were fine; sister had steak burger with cheese - shame just 2 cheese slices (tesco specials) where dumped ontop the salad; were going to order sweets but noted how there were prepared by staff in full view of us eating in the dining room - hair everywhere, no apparent food hygiene methods; noted the Christmas menu was 29.95 for a 4 course meal (nothing special there and way overpriced for what you got). All in all, think I will avoid it for the next 6 years and hope that the menu and food improves.

purchsed the most disgusting ploughmans lunch ever. Flies in lettuce, hairs on plate, cheap nasty ham watery cheese, bad manager unwilling to except responsibility for his food, said he never gets complaints. WARNING - do not eat at this place.

Just awful - sit outside with your own picnic
We declined the vegetables as they were disgusting. The chips - well how do you get them wrong in a place like this? and then the deliberations with management. The chef (?) was with the Queen Mother! the what? insisted we pay or he would call the police and insisted that he had had no complaints. just read the web comments going back over tha last year or two. England at its worst.

Good food, relaxing, very nice
Lovely atmosphere next tot he river good food, and good service, very good play area, arcades etc.
as for the freezer comment below - as much as i would like each desert i buy to be painstakingly crafted totally from scratch in less than 5mins by a legion of cooks - its not really going to happen.

Great food, wonderful service!

As a reply to a post above regarding frozen desserts, how else can you expect to be able to choose from such a wide range of hot desserts?

Couldnt fault it.

Bad service, even worse food
Went for meal, September '05. Never had such fatty tasteless roat beef, slices were almost as thin as gravy. Waitresses preparing desserts in full view of customers, constantly seen to be licking fingers throughout - how revolting! Pitiful that individual desserts (which are probably bought v. cheaply innbulk) also seen to be taken out of chest freezer and microwaved - then charged at exorbitant rates - we were disgusted.
