I don't normally write reviews, apart from that one time that I wrote a negative review to the makers of those fray bentos pies because it took me the same amount of time to get my tin opener to chew through the can as it took for Rihanna to sing "umbrella" but they did end up sending me a can...

Didn't eat here but just used as our local pub. Even in depths of winter this place has a good vibe with the friendly staff and locals.

I have to say, I love this place! Every time I go in I feel very welcome, and when I leave I feel like I've had a great night. All of the staff are friendly, and the regulars are a real treat to talk to after a pint or 4. The food may be simple, but sometimes that what you... More

Hi TardisTravels - Thanks for your excellent review and wonderful comments! The burger is one of my favourites too (with cheese of course), so I am very glad you liked it! We try and keep our prices minimal and affordable for the wonderful punters, as without you guys, we wouldn't be open! I'm extremely glad our staff are giving off... More

After finally finding the pub which can be rather difficult I arrived at the bar. I felt that I was invisible as the staff were having a rather long personal conversation. After a couple of minutes and much waving of a ten pound note I was finally served with a pint of rather old and well past its best beer.... More

Good Afternoon Jeff - We are deeply sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your experience at the boatshed, especially with comments about the staff not being fully attentive. This is totally the opposite to what we pride ourselves on - as you may be able to see from other reviews, or our social media pages. We also get customers... More

Nice pub could be better with a little updating, new owners seem to care about the place which is great, the smell of damp could put people off but not us as it is a shed but very quaint, would visit again.

Hi Wendy, Thanks so much for your kind words regarding the new owners - you couldn't be more correct. As the new ownership has only recently been put in place, we will be working over winter to re-vamp the place (as these are our quieter months). We hope to see you again next summer when the place should be more... More

Our introduction to the hospitality at the shed was on the first night of a long weekend in Wroxham. We had arrived late to our accommodation and hoped that the local (the Shed) was still serving. As we walked in we were really made welcome by the friendly host who ensured that the kitchen remained open to serve us great... More
