Hemsby's Family Friendly Pub next to the Sea! Lovely large pub/restaurant with a super beer garden featuring a large wooden pirate boat! We have 2 sides to our pub, the original with nooks and crannies to hide away in, and our lovely bright modern conservatory - areas to suit everyone! We gladly welcome well behaved dogs on a lead. We also have a fantastic modern venue - The L A Lounge. Here you can get married, have amazing parties or just enjoy our super Bevans Carvery!

Once again Sian, Lorna and the team at the Lacon have done me proud. Beautifully catered, plenty of food and imaginative nibbly bits for the vegan/veggie members of my family. Mum would have enjoyed the food today. Thanks ladies x
