Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Wonderful experience. The staff went above and beyond to cater for my birthday, even though they hadn't been asked to. The food was delicious and well presented, the atmosphere was beautiful. There is a very good variety of low-to-0 alchohol beverages, and the menu had...good choices based on local produce. Very much looking forward to going again.More

Blown away by our lunch here - the whole experience was outstanding! The pub itself is beautiful, both inside and outside, very well cared-for and immaculately presented. A perfect backdrop for our much-loved classic car. The welcome and our table were lovely and complete with...birthday balloons as we were having a celebratory lunch with a special friend. As to the food, it was just stunning - presentation, quality and taste. We had starters, main courses and desserts then coffee - all first class and served by a charming young man, who was an asset to the venue. We will DEFINITELY be back - can't wait in fact.More

Amazing!! Definitely deserves 5 stars. From the moment we walked in the door out of the rain, we were welcomed by friendly smiling staff. Pub was lovely and warm. Our waitress was so helpful and asked details about my milk allergy. She was very knowledgeable...about the menu and the kitchen were great at adapting the meals so I had a great choice of dishes. We really enjoyed our meals the food was delicious. Can’t wait to come back again.More

Expensive, poor quality food and NOT Value For Money. Inundated with flies throughout the meal, which apparently is common, and there were no electric fy zappers in use.

Table for eight booked for a friends birthday. Venue was pleasant and the staff were friendly, however the meal itself was very ordinary and vastly overpriced. After reading the descriptions we were all hugely disappointed with what arrived, the footage didn’t match the description and...was served on cold plates! The only reason we didn’t cause a fuss at the time was because we didn’t want to spoil the occasion for our birthday friend who picked the venue I am aware that all pubs these days have to serve food in order to survive, but why do so many serve ordinary food at inflated restaurant prices! Needless to say the general consensus of opinion is that we won’t be returning.More

Walked here for lunch from our Lodge at Waveney Water Centre. We were not disappointed! Friendly server, great decor, and lovely atmosphere. I ordered the club sandwich and my girlfriend had the fish goujon sandwich. The chicken had a great chargrill flavour as well as...the vibrant lemon and herb brine. The batter on the fish was also very good and the haddock melted in your mouth! We returned the following day and ordered the same. I was slightly disappointed to see the bacon on the club sandwich had been substituted for bacon jam on our second visit. The chef did seem to have an olive oil obsession but good non the less! Would have loved to have dinner here.More

There is no other place to come for a Sunday roast. Their roasts are fantastic especially the pork. The staff and service is always great, with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. You will never want to go anywhere else.

We had a really lovely evening here last night. The staff were polite and welcoming from the minute we stepped through the door into the warm, cosy pub. The restaurant was tastefully decorated for Christmas and the huge tree was lit up and beautiful. The...food was delicious and really well presented. Everyone (we were a group of 13) enjoyed their meal and said how good it was. We’re already planning a return visit in the new year. I highly recommend the turkey Christmas dinner..cooked to perfection. Thank you.More
