Moored on the broad and walked into the village. Stopped here for a Sunday lunch. Nice pork for myself and roast beef for my wife. Good portion, hot, nice veg and pleasant staff. Nothing not to like.

Very high quality food served, nice ale and top service. Enjoyable late evening out, whilst on a long weekend away in Norfolk. Nice country feel to the pub and everything was great. Will definately return from S Wales at some point

We are sorry you felt uncomfortable, it wasn't our intention. However I would dispute the child friendly assertion as we do have a small child of our own, and I would love to have loads more but can't, partly due to being constantly exhausted running...More

We had Sunday lunch here last week. We would normally have gone to the pub in Ranworth, but during the warmer months they apparently don't do a roast on Sundays. For me, Sunday is just not Sunday without a roast so having previously heard of...More

Situated in the village of South Walsham, just off the Norfolk Broads (Fleet Dyke is our nearest mooring), we are a friendly family-run local pub offering fine ales from Green Jack, Lowestoft, alongside national guests, selected wine list from Bijou Bottles, and delicious home cooked food (sample menus available on our web site). We look forward to welcoming you, your family and friends, locals and visitors alike! Dogs are welcome in the main bar.
