Recently modernised bathroom with walk in shower - ample toiletries provided all of which ensured our comfort. Staff. They were all most efficient and friendly throughout our stay. Even during very busy times they continued to be helpful and courteous. Food?... More

We arrived without having booked and said we were in a slight hurry, as we had to catch the last narrow gauge train of the day back to Wroxham. The chap who greeted us couldn't have been more welcoming and understanding. Let's get you sat down, send your food order to the kitchen and get you some drinks he said.... More

We visited the Black Boys for a family celebration; the food and staff were really good, however we were seated close to the bar area, difficult not to be, and the noise and proximity of bar customers was a distinct minus. This wasn't our first time here, and the noise does vary depending where you sit.

We had a meal here with a group of friends - over 20 of us booked and pre-ordered. We were shocked at the price of a pint of bitter - worse than London prices! The food was generally good - only complaint was we ordered beef brisket bap which was spoiled by the beef being smothered in a rather gloopy... More

If in the area this is a must visit. A good extensive menu coving a good range of meat and fish dishes plus several vegetarian options. I had a very large Mackerel stuffed with crab meat, new potatoes, samphire with a butter sauce. The food was well presented, well cooked and piping hot. The service was excellent. The cost of...

We went in for coffee as we could not find any coffee shop that was open on a Sunday morning. However this is far from being a pub serving coffee. Most tables were taken by people either having breakfast or just coffee. The service was friendly and quick, the coffee up to the highest standard. we were very impressed and... More
