Venison burger a must have, also most of the ingredients are local so are fresh, paid a lot more for less at other places. Good table staff who are friendly and helpful. 😊

Have eaten here a few times now and never been disappointed. Although we have been able to turn up in the past and get lucky with a table, I would now always book. Today we all had the most amazing roast beef. Right amount of meat which was perfectly cooked and so flavoursome, veg and gravy to die for. But,... More

We ate in here while on a family holiday in Letheringsett, everyone enjoyed their choice of food and the service was good. The furniture was very worn with one chair torn to shreds presumably to add some sort of atmosphere and there was a very warm log burner. Our only disappointment was that after arriving home we discovered that we... More

Met my youngest son and his girlfriend here for dinner earlier in the week. First visit here although I've been to other Anglia Country Inns.

Went with friends for lunch. Setting is very pleasant and promises a very relaxing experience, but the details let it down. Food is reasonable and with a few tweaks could be very good. For the price there needs to be some improvement though as it felt like they had plateaued. The service was incredibly slow, it took over an hour... More

The restaurant is nice with a reasonable atmosphere. The service was good and the staff pleasant and friendly, the wine was good as was the beer, But a shame about the food, my starter of potted shrimps was ok but the small piece of toast to eat them with was not enough. The pork bacon main was not enjoyable, potatoes... More

We were a big party of 8 adults and 5 children and had a long table near a fire. The staff were welcoming and attentive. The duck was tender and more orange sauce was provided on request. Everybody enjoyed what they'd ordered. OK, so a bit of a wait for the drinks but they were very busy. Play area outside... More

We had a warm welcome and were well looked after by the waiting staff; the wood fires were very nice on a cold evening but the food was disappointing. The menu was very limited, although not over priced, but the quality of the food was poor. The sea-bass served with crab and clam linguine contained 5 clams of which 2... More

We had pre-booked a table for 4 plus a high chair for a toddler on a Saturday afternoon in late November 2016.
