The food is always to a good standard and the service is always good. We have visited this restaurant many times and have never had a reason to complain. Roast Lamb on Sunday was excellent

Fanatasic restaurant slightly of the beaten track which was recommended by the manager of the The Sculthorpe Mill which you list (and is excellent as well. Ate there this weekend - owners are clearly trying to offer something a bit different that sits between the many "fine dining" estasblishments in North Norfolk and the cheaper pub grub. Really hits the spot and to be honest was far better than both the Globe and the Victoria (Well & Holkham) where I have dined recently. Please give the owners the recognition they deserve.
