About
The Foundry Arms has been on the same site in Northrepps since 1845 and is as welcoming now as it always was. A traditional village pub and restaurant we serve some of the finest real ales in the county whilst our chefs work their culinary magic in the kitchen. A welcoming, relaxed atmosphere await, complimented by unobtrusive service from your hosts Jason and Sarah. In the bar you'll find many friendly locals often with a tale to tell and our newly refurbished, tastefully decorated restaurant is an ideal place to while away a lunchtime or evening. We will happily cater for any menu requests with a couple of days notice. We very much look forward to welcoming you to The Foundry soon.

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.

My husband our chihuahua and I went for a meal at the foundry arm’s tonight, 2 hours later and i’m still full. We were made very welcome and on such a cold wet night it was great to be greeted by a glowing log burner....What a fabulous meal we had and such generous portions. I had belly pork with bootiful buttery mash and roasted root veg which made a nice change from boiled veg. Hubby had hunters chicken and lovely fat chips. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed our choices and look forward to returning to sample more of the menu which although not massive had everything you would expect to see on any good pub menu. The lunch and pizza menu’s also looked great. There is a large part covered beer garden at the rear of the bar which is imagine is fantastic on long hot summer evenings, especially as I believe live music is often a feature.More

Had a valentines meal here and took our dog. Lovely country pub. Nice and warm, excellent staff and really nice food. As we had a dog we ate in the bar area which was fantastic. The food came out on hot plates, which really makes...a difference. Will definitely return when we are in the area.More

Visited the foundry for the first time on a Sunday. Took family who were visiting and have to say the food, atmosphere and general experience was great. Exceptionally dog friendly which is great for our 2 spaniels. Roast was brilliant and for the price I...would visit every week if my waistline would allow it.More

Rotten weather so no walking on the cards today so decided to break the day up with a pub lunch. A bit of googling showed The Foundry to have good reviews. I now know why. Welcoming and attentive staff, great home cooked food, roaring fire,...good beer and excellent background music. I would be very happy if this was my local! Never know, it may be sometime soon as coming ‘home’ to Norfolk as soon as our house sells. Sure we will be back sometime anyway.More
