Wonderful evening last night with friends. Booking was easy and professional. Staff throughout the evening were so friendly, nothing was too much trouble, customer service was excellent! Food was beyond delicious, atmosphere relaxed and friendly in both the bar and the lovely fine dining restaurant. A fantastic experience, I can't wait to go back. Well done!

This is a hidden gem. Lovely quiet surroundings. Great breakfast and comfy room. We were in a wonderful annex room. It's situated in a picturesque village. Easy enough to travel to other areas of Norfolk.

Very friendly and welcoming staff. Excellent food and service. High quality room. Really enjoyed my 4 night stay at the Berney Arms. The location is perfect for the various birdwatching trips that I wanted to do - within easy reach of the North Norfolk coast, the Broads, the Fenland and Rutland Water. I will definitely be recommending a stay here...

We spent only the one night here to visit Oxburgh Hall for the Easter weekend but would have loved to stay longer. Beautiful clean accommodation, amazing breakfast and the staff were perfect. So very welcoming and accommodating with just a wonderfully positive attitude. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in the local area.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set in the very quiet village, almost a hamlet, of Barton Bendish, between Downham Market & Swaffham, is The Berney Arms , previously known as The Spread Eagle under different ownership. The pub was closed in March of 2010 and reopened in August of 2010. We have 5 luxurious rooms all refurbished in 2013 all are en-suite, with either Super-king of King sized beds, individual patios with bright tables & chairs. There is a bar, restaurant and very spacious garden also with bright benches. The bar & restaurant serve food all day every day, and specialise in traditional afternoon teas. The menu is centered around local seasonal produce, such as venison from the Barton estate, and asparagus from a mile away, also proper free range eggs from the next village. We look forward to welcoming you. ... more   less
