It's a fantastic pub with great Chinese food! I hear the sunday lunches are fantastic as I have herd but sadly I have never got there to actually try one... I'm making that my next plan!

This place is a little diamond around these parts. Warm and cosy pub, friendly country atmosphere, great selection of beers and drinks, and while they do offer a selection of standard pub food (eg: roasts etc) - their speciality is Asian cuisine: Chinese (Cantonese), Malaysian or East Asian fusion, so picking something from their Asian menu is absolutely the way...

I can not wait to try the take away food as we live close... More

We visited for a family party spanning three generatiions and found dishes to everyone's liking. A very friendly welcome and an interesting menu, largely familiar Chinese favourites but with less common dishes too adding Vietnamese, Thai and Japanese options. No MSG here, so you don't wake up feeling dehydrated. Recommended for an informal, relaxed meal.

Visited on a Friday evening and lead to our lovely table. The staff were attentive and the food choice was amazing.The food was so tasty and plentiful but the staff do give you enough time in between courses to deal with the next one. Highly recommended.

Thams doubles as both the village pub and a popular restaurant/ take away. The friendly welcome by Tham and his wife Kim is refreshing in this fast food age and it's astonishing how many names they remember. The staff are generally students from the village and I found them informative and helpful. The food is in fact a mix of... More

I have had several meals at Tham's and have never been disappointed. The staff are really helpfull and if you are not sure what to order, or the amount then the staff will help you to decide ( I can really recommend the mixed starter ) Enjoy..

Fantastic, food & service superb. Lovely to have a brilliant Chinese meal in a 'local' pub. Tham the owner is brilliant. We will be back with friends next time.

there are better places to eat in Norfolk, unfortunately this isn't one of them, food mediocre, the chicken wasn't cooked and the wine terrible. Perhaps we just went on a bad day!
