    Good Hotel Guide Review

    Roses ramble up the whitewashed 14th-century walls of Jeannette and Anthony Goodrich’s quintessential English inn, creating a pretty beacon when they’re in bloom. Inside, low beams, leaning walls, twisting passages and cosy pockets combine with friendly staff to create a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere that’s popular with locals. Pleasant, cheering bedrooms are stocked with magazines, books, luxury toiletries, fresh milk and tasty home-made biscuits, as well as a bible of local information. In the different dining areas, pick between classic pub favourites and more daring fare; whichever you choose, chef Jamie Clarke uses game from local estates, and freshly caught mussels, oysters, lobster and crab. On fine days, the sunny walled garden is the place to be. Beaches nearby. 3 bar areas, 3 dining areas, lounge (‘laid-back and low-key’ background music). Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). Walled garden (alfresco meals and drinks, children’s play area). Children (high chair, colouring sets; cot £10 per night) and ‘well-behaved’ dogs welcomed. 16 bedrooms (2 on ground floor; 2 suitable for disabled). Per room B&B single £100–£120, double £120–£140. 2-night min. stay on Bank Holiday weekends.

    'On a return visit we had made a special request for our favourite room, and The Blue Room still lived up to our expectations. It is situated up the steep staircase near the bar, and is a challenge carrying luggage up to, but assistance was offered by the friendly receptionist who made sure we knew where to find everything. We had dinner in the Cellar Bar. Excellent complimentary fresh bread was brought out. When I was disappointed that my asparagus starter was served cold, I was given an alternative and not charged for the asparagus. My huge plate of lamb came with a delicious truffle jus. My wife enjoyed the pub classic, scampi in a basket; the fat chips were as lovely as they were on our previous visits. We enjoyed our desserts. It was good to see a familiar face at breakfast; the lady who has managed breakfast for many years does a fantastic job of keeping things running smoothly. They still use brilliant local sausages and bacon and still tell you to put the bread through toaster twice. I saw Anthony Goodrich one morning checking on business with the reception team. Its clear they remain hands on owners. ' - Kevin and Victoria Seymour - February, 2017
    'Comfortable Norfolk inn. Delicious food. ' - Kevin Seymour - October, 2014
    'A delight in most respects. Lunch was well prepared and served. My room was smallish, plain and comfortable. No bar snacks in the evening. ' - - November, 2011
