My husband and I stopped off here today after walking the dog along the sherringham area,north Norfolk coast. we searched and found this pub through triipadvisor. The food was just okay, nothing to moan about, basic but over priced at £14.00 for roast beef(two slices) and £12.00 for a roast chicken lunch. Instant gravy and a frozen Yorkshire pudding! Fresh...

We visited The Vilage Inn while on holidays in late October for a Sunday roast - in our case it was a vegeterian option. What can I say - the portions were massive and the food was absolutely delicious, very very tasty nut roast, lovely roasted vegetables and a nice pint. They are also dog friendly, which we didn't realise... More

Visited here last Sunday for a roast at about 6pm. The pub itself offers plenty of parking and inside has a lovely fire and great feel. You certainly don't feel like the locals are against you being there! I had a turkey roast at £12 and it was amazing. There was a huge amount of turkey, stuffing, Yorkshire pudding, lots... More

Stopped off for lunch as the pub looked nice. The menu seemed decent, usual pub grub. Orders are taken at the bar and this took ages. Only one person serving and she was so slow. The food was disappointing. I had fish and chips. Under cooked batter and under cooked chips and was just unpleasant. My son's pie was okay... More

I can see now why the place was empty, dreadful unfriendly service and the food wasn't much better either, we both went for the hog roast and at £8 each not cheap!! Re heated meat and awful fat too much stuffing and NO GRAVY, Been living in Norfolk for 11 months and that was by far the worse eating out... More
