Good Hotel Guide Review

Down the road from the village church, Jeannette and Anthony Goodrich’s ‘delightful, enjoyable’, family-friendly inn gains a full entry this year thanks to a recommendation from a regular Guide correspondent. (A ‘well-prepared’ dish of pan-fried calf’s liver and bacon, with Chantenay carrots, can’t have hurt, either.) A country cousin to the Goodriches’ Bank House in King’s Lynn (see entry), the 14th-century pub, the village local, looks the part: whitewashed, with rambling roses outside; beams, low doorways and open fires inside; a jolly walled garden, with parasols and picnic tables, out back. Chef Jamie Clarke’s ‘very good’ menu of pub classics and more exotic fare highlights produce sourced from within a 20-mile radius: mussels, lobster and crab from Brancaster and Thornham; salads from village allotments; meat from the local butcher. Stay the night in one of the simply decorated bedrooms stocked with books, magazines and fine toiletries. ‘Our room at the rear, reached by a steep, narrow staircase, was comfortable, with fluffy towels in the excellent bathroom. Fresh milk in the room, too – always a bonus.’ (Sara Price)

Guest comments

'A delightful pub, with masses of small bar areas as well as comfortable restaurants. Our room at back was reached by a steep, narrow staircase but we found an easier, though longer, way to reach it subsequently. It was comfortable, with an excellent bathroom. Fresh milk available, always a bonus. Dinners were very good. It is the place of choice for locals. Breakfasts in the large garden room had a buffet table with dried and fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, et,c as well as good freshly cooked food. All the staff were friendly and helpful.

'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
'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 - August, 0807
