Description
This is a fully refurbished modern yet characteristic delightful country pub offering a great homecooked menu with traditional pub choices and NEW griddle & grill menu. All dishes are made and produced onsite with a large selection of burgers, pizzas, sizzlers and sharers. 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.
