An excellent place to eat on the way to and from Norwich
This pub was a good find. Very good quality home cooked food. Found nothing of this standard for miles. They can handle different dietary restrictions with ease, and our Gluten Free requirement caused no problems whatsoever. Eaten here many times now and it's always good.
