Having spent a lovely few days in Norfolk we thought we would have a nice meal before returning home the next day at the Old Ram. The restaurant did not seem that busy but was told there would be a wait of 30 minutes, we were seated at the table after 15 minutes sitting in the bar. We were then...

I visited the Ram Inn on the 9/8/2015, order a chicken and Bacon salad, together with a couple of kids meals (which were OK) 1/4 of the way through the meal I thought it tasted of fish and saw an anchovi on my plate (this was not as described in the menu) to compound this after I had sent the...

This charming inn is very good with the potential to be great. The staff are the best I have encountered anywhere. The food is high quality and value for money. Just a few minuses...no chambermaid service on one day of our stay, and one room light not working. Also the room lights are too dim to allow reading easily after...

Our room was right upstairs with wooden beams and sloping floors. Very nice bathroom and very comfortable bed. The only downside is the road right outside - very noisy in the day-time but quietens down at night and we were not disturbed by traffic. Very friendly helpful staff. Excellent food in the evenings but the breakfasts were slightly lacking in...

We called into the Ram early evening, about 5.30 for something to eat. We were greeted and seated by a lovely girl. She took our drink order and served us quickly. We ordered our food and it came reasonably quickly. It was possibly the worst meal we have ever eaten. I had a vegetarian suet pudding/pie. The pastry was thick...

It started with an extremely friendly welcome and then a delightful bedroom which was spotless and perfect. Mine host (and wife) couldn't do enough for us, and the waitresses were extremely helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. We hit upon a steak night - wonderful - and the restaurant was packed. We 4 all had steak, ranging from...
