This restaurant is by far the best I have been to in recent years. Everything from the service to the food was just as it should be. Family owned and run with small touches that make the whole experience such a treat. I would suggest you go if you if you can get a booking, you will not be disappointed... More

A small well appointed intimate restaurant. We were made to feel very welcome and enjoyed our pre dinner drink and canapes in a comfortable bar area. The food was excellent as was the service. I can think of nothing negative to say and would suggest that it is one of the best restaurants in Norfolk, if not the best. This... More

We took the bait of some friends to celebrate a birthday at The Neptune. The food is really top quality, and the selection excellent, but obviously not too long. We decided against the tasting menu and went instead for 3 courses. I also tasted A's beef dish which was really tasty. I had the pork, which was excellent. My starter... More

When we said we were thinking of taking a trip to North Norfolk two separate people said we had to go to the Neptune - and they were right! Everything about the Neptune is absolutely first class. Having been for a long walk in the afternoon we felt up to tackling the tasting menu and it was an inspired choice.... More

Tried to get in here in June and it was fully booked until September. This is an amazing little gem. We have some good restaurants in Norfolk but this is one of the best. There is a set menu and a taster menu to choose from. The tastes send your taste buds wild. From lobster and crab to quail and... More

We recently stayed here for the fourth time. Delighted to say that it's as good as ever. The food is superb and features some real flair in terms of flavors. Beetroot madelaines were a delight as a nibble and the felafel starter with passion fruit and chilli sorbet was inspired. The wine list is excellent and there are very good... More

This lovely Inn is not to be missed. If you are looking for excellent food, personal service and a comfortable bed in a lovely room then this is the place for you. The Neptune Inn only has 5 rooms and a small dining room which makes this the ideal place to get away from the hustle and bustle, and yet... More

I guess it's the curse of any place like this that expectations would be sky high. We were a party of 4 and chose the tasting menu at £70+ a head. There were I think 7 courses you can see the menu online and each course was in itself very nice but just not really amazing nor if I am... More

Just back from Bank Holiday weekend at The Neptune. What a wonderful experience, Kevin is an extremely talented chef, in particular highlights for me were the gazpacho soup and the creme caramel. Both nights the dinner was sublime, the falafel starter was stunning, and the breakfasts are also incredibly good. Jacki is a perfectionist and is always on hand to... More

We've recently returned from a wonderful 2 night stay at the Neptune. We got engaged over the weekend and Kevin and Jacki (and Jacki's mum) really made our celebrations feel extra special. A major highlight was the incredible food, clearly made by a very talented chef. We chose from the standard menu on the first night and I have never... More

Description
This restaurant has some rooms, and has a listing under B&Bs, but I feel should feature under restaurant section for Hunstanton - as that is its main strength and focus.
