What a perfect Village Inn! We stayed the night in the dog friendly room, walks are just out of the door and there's so many to choose from, the dogs loved it! The room we were in overlooked Blickling Hall, light and very spacious and very comfortable. The manager Adriano made us feel so welcome throughout our stay and along... More

We met our family here for a birthday celebration and booked a couple of rooms so we would have to drive home. I can't say how much we enjoyed our evening. The food was divine, the service efficient and friendly and the pub/restaurant is just an amazing building. Best meal out in a very long time. Strongly recommend you try... More

This has been our 2nd home recently, firstly having a new bathroom installed and then latterly our amazing Mum-in-law passed away. Although we are Norwich based this was a peaceful haven for us to escape to. The staff have always been professional, friendly and accomodating. We have stayed here on numerous occassions and will be staying again next week, this... More

Stayed one night whilst visiting friends in the vicinity. Exceptionally friendly welcome from bar staff on arrival despite them being quite busy. Room ( we had room 3 ) was very spacious and the 4 poster bed really comfortable. Just one small point - the dressing table has no plug near it for a hair dryer and even if it... More

The first time my partner and I went to the Bucks back in Nov 2016 it was amazing. It was a busy Saturday night and the place was packed. The host (I didn't catch his name) couldn't have been more attentive. I'm Gluten Free so he bent over backwards to ensure I had plenty of choice. We had an amazing... More

Often come here early evening. Always made very welcome and go above and beyond to accommodate whatever we ask. Last week I asked if they could take the lemon sole off the bone which was not a problem for them, and was delicious. Highly recommend this place for quality food and excellent service.

Excellent little pub located right next to Blickling Hall, we stayed the night in one of their rooms and found it very comfortable and clean. The staff were super helpful and friendly, it's amazing how much that can influence your stay. I think we were the only people who had a room that night and they made us feel totally... More

Had a nice family lunch here after a sunny walk from Aylsham. Lovely old pub right next to Blickling Hall with with a big garden. Staff were friendly and they served really good pub food with massive portions. Cromer crab cakes were tasty and fish and chips felt homemade and fresh. My sister said she would have liked the food... More

We arrived for lunch one Tuesday after our morning group walk, a party of 21, all keen for a drink and some lunch. We had phoned ahead to tell them of our numbers and were shown into the dining room where two tables had been laid up. We got drinks at the bar and sat down at our tables to... More
