There is an extensive menu. The food seemed freshly prepared. Friendly and helpful staff. A good selection of drinks. A good feeling of space between tables. Chance to sit outside on the banks of the Broad if the weather is suitable. Dog friendly.

The place is amazing. Very well presented, well designed and the location is very secluded. The staff are extremely friendly and professional and always willing to help. The restaurant food was very good and reasonably priced. Close to Norfolk broads and other local attractions.

Description
The Boathouse is Norfolk's most anticipated new venue for 2014. Formerly the Eels Foot pub, the venue has been lovingly restored and extended and now serves traditional pub grub(with the occasional twist) during the day with country and gastro dining in the evenings (carvery option only on Sundays). Food is served from 12 noon - 3pm and 6pm - 9pm daily (Monday - Saturday) and 12 noon - 6pm on Sundays. We use the finest fresh seasonal local ingredients with all meals being prepared to order. Beautifully presented interior with outdoor seating, children's play area and stunning views of the Broad. We can assure you of a very warm welcome at the Boathouse.
