We were recommended this pub as it was a 10 minute walk from the yurt we stayed in. The service is friendly and the food was great - best salt & pepper squid we have tasted. Worth the visit but I would recommending booking!

I don't believe they can have caravans now as they have added wooden sleeping pods. I rang tonight and booked my motorhome which was fine but I do seem to remember her saying they do not have caravans anymore.

Motorhomes are welcome although generally pre booking due to limited spaces is required and we charge £15 per night which includes water and electric. Hope this helps

Description
The Norman Knight is situated in the picturesque village of Whichford. We have it all, fantastic, tasty food, great selection of beers and a wide variety of wines. The log burners, snug area, the garden overlooking the village green, flagstone floors, we a traditional quintessential village pub. Priding ourselves on fresh local ingredients, food varies from old time favourites to dishes with a multicultural twist. Booking is essential, particularly weekends. A perfect venue for quiet meals for two through to weddings and other special occasions. Always a warm welcome from the staff so why bother to leave, with 4 glamping pods and a shepherds hut at the rear of the pub you could make a few days of it and enjoy the surroundings. Take in a walk around the stunning Whichford Woods before joining us for lunch amongst other beautiful walks. Beer festivals, quiz nights, live music, we definitely have something for everyone. We look forward to saying hello soon!
