A lovely pub in the most perfect location imaginable. The choice of real ales on offer is truly outstanding, but watch the potency of some of em!!. Staff are very friendly and helpful, food choice is excellent and great value. The perfect place for a pint whilst relaxing after a day out in the local area. Entertainment on a regular... More

A great stop after a walk on the beach...or a lazy drive from town that's worthwhile. Friendly, good food, good service, dog friendly, plenty of parking and a relaxing place to drink a beer or two.

One of the best pubs I've been in for families. Very friendly staff that made us feel welcome. Hannah the waitress was very attentive even bringing double sauces! Food and serve was brilliant. We will definitely be returning next year. Thank you Michelle and Hannah.

We called in when staying locally and hadn't prebooked yet the staff happily moved some tables around to make room for us all and made us feel that nothing was too much trouble. The Tuesday evening menu was a hot buffet with around 7 different home-cooked dishes plus a dessert all for just £7.50! The food was healthy and delicious,... More

I liked the selection of ales here, 3/4 pumps, staff were friendly. Pub itself is a little shabby,, dogs are allowed inside. Whenever I popped in over my three days in Kessingland,, Horse Racing was constantly shown on Tv during the day. I never tasted the food here so I can't comment on it I would visit here again when...

So I reluctantly said one steak and Kessingland chicken and chips please. What then followed was a joke the steak was just past rare and the chicken was cheap preformed chicken that... More
