12 of the family came for Sunday lunch, as I'd heard it was a good place to come. However, I left feeling underwhelmed by my Cromer Crab salad, which consisted of a dressed crab, and tiny portion of uninspired salad, and 2 enormous slabs of ordinary bread. No mayonnaise or dressing, or pepper mills, and I felt was expensive at... More

Really friendly reception from the manager we decided to return for our post walk refreshments later. It was around 3.30 when we were back. Much much busier especially in... More

It's been a while since I visited here due to some fairly mediocre meals and unwelcoming locals. Heard the owners had changed and so glad I did. Popped by mid walk for a Friday lunch. The interior is just how a village pub should be, the staff very welcoming and accommodating, particularly with our dog. Had a mixture of starters... More

Very good family lunch on a sunny day in the sheltered garden. Efficient and friendly service on busy Mothers' Day. Beer good and the Ploughman's especially delicious.

Booked a table for Sunday lunch while visiting my son and his family. Lovely atmospheric place - a Real English pub. Kids played in the garden whilst we had some good bitter inside. Then excellent roast beef lunch all round. Good service and reasonable price.All round good visit.

Our walking group descended on Valiant Trooper having made a booking beforehand and pre-selected choices from emailed menu. Received a lovely welcome and although we were quite a large party were served with drinks and our lunch choices confirmed without fuss and with a smile. Having scraped off our walking boots on the scraper and brush provided we sat in... More
