Great lunch time atmosphere (a little child heavy being half term but the kids seemed well behaved!) Excellent food, friendly service. As always with Adnams top beer and dog friendly. Will be back again.

We returned for the fourth year running and once again were not disappointed. The welcome and general pub ambience were as warm as previously. The beer (all the local Adnams) good; the food delicious and the accommodation warm, cozy and quiet. RSPB Minsmere is virtually on the doorstep and RSPB North Warren a short drive away.

Our first visit here & it most certainly didn't disappoint. Roaring fire, cozy seating and fantastic food. We shared the baked Camembert & I even had a lovely warm gluten free roll. I had the corn fed chicken off the specials board, it was extremely tasty. My partner had the fish n chips which he really enjoyed too. Friendly service....

Chorizo and King Scallop salad, fish soup and children's burger, followed by whitebait main and Vietnamese Goat Curry. Wow all homemade, great fresh produce and lovingly put together. The scallop and the chorizo were delicious, the scallop was fresh and plump, not frozen and shrivelled!! Children's burger was good, a homemade patty, a little dry but perfect for children, I...

Dropped in at lunchtime after a long gentle walk from Theberton with the family . We had all worked up a healthy appetite and the Eels did not disappoint. Good selection of pub grub - we had parsnip and honey soup, turkey and bacon sandwiches and Welsh rabbit. Resisted the temptation to go for the Vietnamese goat curry but it...

The food was good not to big a portion so you didn't feel bloated. The boys enjoyed the Adnams ale 👍🏻👍🏻🍻🍻. The pub is dog friendly which is always...

I have not stayed but have spent many a happy lunch time here with food a cut above the average pub grub, excellent friendly service and although they do not take reservations have always found a space and been served promptly. I take my old Dad there and they could do with hand rails by the steps outside but without...

We stayed here one night mid week whilst walking around Minsmere. The staff were really friendly and helpful making us feel very welcome. The room was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. The bathroom was a little tired looking but everything worked fine. It was so quiet and peaceful overnight. Our evening meal was very nice, whitebait to start which was...

Been a while since we'd been here. The Adnam's beer is still great, fine choice of great ales. The real surprise for us was the food. A good choice of really tasty meals, much better than your average "pub grub". We were all very impressed.

I visited as part of a group of ten recently. Food bookings not accepted but we 'phoned in advance to tell them that a large group would be visiting for a meal. We were told that it wouldn't be a problem and they were true to their word. Orders were taken, and served quickly and efficiently - a well run...
