This was our first meal here and it was fantastic food! We was a group of 11, we all had nothing but good comments about our meals. The stakes were cooked to perfection! The portions were great too, nobody left feeling hungry. The staff we friendly and very accommodating.

Eat in the conservatory, large portions, every day food at reasonable price, Al a carte was fairly expensive. Friendly staff. Veg/salad with the meat/fish was not quite what was expected, overall average.

It's a shame when a restaurant goes down hill. Sixteen years ago this was a lovely place with good home cooked food and pleasant helpful staff. But lately this has turned in my opinion into probably the worst place to eat in Watton. We booked in for Mother's Day ( My fault for leaving it so late). We specifically requested... More

The food was lovely & hot, although found it a little strange that the starter was carrot & coriander soup (set menu) & the choice of dessert was either lemon pudding or carrot (again!) &... More

We were accused of damaging the table with a knife (which wasn't even sharp... More

Eight of us ate Sunday lunch which is a set menu. Vegetarians had greater choice. Only one choice of starter for carnivores which was carrot and coriander soup which I don't like and no alternative was offered. Main courses were massive but tasted mass produced but excellent value for money. Will probably visit again.
