Despite stuffing our faces at The Village up the road, we managed to find room for something off the tempting pudding board; I had delicious treacle & ginger tart, my partner polished off a cheese board. Good selection of ales, both football and live music,...More

We visited the Fishing Boat numerous times during our week's holiday in East Runton. Very friendly and even put the Sale game on for us. Beer was good and prices (for the area) were great. Food was also good.

Popped in on the off chance of a meal. We took our dogs with us. It was a nice pub, good beer, extremely good value, and so long as you're not looking for luxury it was fine. The food was fresh, and portion sizes huge!

There's very little positive things to say about this establishment, however, the staff were friendly enough I guess. The beers were not cheap to say the least, there are no menus as such, the food was pretty awful and the entire venue, including garden and...More

First time we visited it was great but on a recent visit we were served by a 16yr old (which I am sure is illegal) who basically called us liars when we gave her a £20 note andown short-changed us. We left in disgust bein...More

Great pub with lovely garden. Lots of little private areas. And a good play area for young children. I would question the very chunky bark the play equipment stands on but still fun. There was live music on when we visited. Drinks were really good...More

It\s ok but in my opinion a bit expensive for what it is. Having said that plenty of people eat there but as I said in my review its mainly a pub with excellent ales and very cheap to boot !!
