Norfolk Broads authentic country pubs and accomodations?

Hello...for a long weekend in the Broads area could anyone please suggest some 4 star/rosette quality bed and breakfast or country pubs for a weekend getaway. Price per night per room up to £90. In addition are there any standout authentic (gastro)pubs that serve simple British quality pub food (ie NOT thai green curry, italian pasta etc) and great local ales? Cheers

Not sure if Swanton Morley is classed as the Broads but there's a wonderful pub there serving first rate food, first rate beer,and accommodation a short distance away(the owners provide a shuttle service).The pub is called Darbys. The accommodation is in converted farm buildings, the bar stools are old tractor seats etc. A very fine pub which I am sure you will enjoy.

The Kings Arms in Blakeney is definitely Broads territory and is another fine place(the whitebait is wonderful).

This may be a little too far from your chosen area, but we love Byford's 'posh bed and breakfast' - might blow your budget I fear but really lovely. It's right in the centre of the small town of Holt, and the food is delicious there.

The town also has a superb deli which we love for picnic food but the name currently escapes me - sorry! But you can't miss it.

The Walpole Arms is closed for renovation but due to open again soon -

There's also the Saracen's Head and Beechwood Hotel (the latter may not be quite what you are looking for but is worth a look anyway).

Morgana,

You'd be talking about Larners then?!!!

The best food hall outside Fortnum & Mason I believe!

Food wise, try the King's Head in Holt - owned by the same people as Byfords, or the Pigs @ Edgefield - again owned by the same people...

I've heard good things about the Bell @ Hunworth too.

If you're not coming down for a while, the King's Head at Letheringsett is also being re-modelled as a gastro-pub, a fairly well known Aussie chef has taken the place on...

Nearer to the true heart of the Broads, you've got the Lavender House in Brundall - a gastro delight...

You could try The Plough Inn at Marsham, just south of Aylsham its only 7 miles from Wroxham at the heart of the Broads and in a good central location for exploring the area. Great selection of good English food such as home made steak and kidney pie but also dishes using local produce such as Cromer crab, Morston Mussels and samphire when in season. Very friendly and welcoming nice rooms, good service.
