Description
This is a fully refurbished deightful country pub offering a great homecooked menu with traditional pub choices and evening a'la carte. The lunch menu is varied and all dishes are made and produced onsite. There is a full wine list and friendly efficient staff. The lodge benefits from easy access from the A47 just a few minutes from Dereham and 10 miles from Norwich. Large hard standing carpark and enclosed family garden. Good honest food at good honest prices, more than just a country pub. Also a bespoke wedding venue for the smaller wedding party who wish for an intimate day.
