A little walk from the boat to the village of South Walsham but well signposted. Lovely food, cooked to order. Option of half portions of all main meals for children. Reasonably priced. Lovely staff.

We look forward to welcoming you, your family and friends, locals and visitors alike! Dogs are welcome in the main bar.
