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)
