“Staff hard working and very pleasant but not enough of them!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013

These comments only refer to the restaurant.

I was a guest in a large party and whilst the staff worked hard and were very pleasant, it soon became obvious that, with two other parties as well as a few other tables, they were woefully short-handed. Firstly, we were not situated in the area which we were previously told that had been allotted to us, the reason for which should have been conveyed to our host before we arrived. Early on, we had a small accident when a vase of flowers was overturned which resulted in the water therein seeping closer and closer to me as the meal went on, there being no effort by the staff to mop up although I must admit that they were all rushing around to serve meals and drinks.

Regarding my meal, my main course was described as being succulent slices of roast beef, which, quite frankly they were not - it was an obvious grey unappetising lump from a catering pack. I would hasten to add though that the accompanying vegetables were excellent as was my first course of pate.

Being a local resident, I would state that I have recorded these comment in an effort to be contructive as it is in my own interests to have a good restaurant in the area.

I have stayed here many times over the last four years and have always have been very pleased with my stay, the service at the hotel and the quality of the food served. Has improved as the years have gone by, its an excellent base to visit the broads from and would recommend it to anyone who is visiting this part of the country, it is a hotel I always look forward to visiting and always will when I am in the area

The staff are very helpful and friendly. The food was very good and the bar very comfortable. Good location for exploring the area. We visited the beach to see the seal colony. We would definitely stay again.

Called in for lunch, and wow! Lots of choices, good service, lovely atmosphere. Great for families, couples, and parties. Our lunches were well cooked, large portions and very tasty. All home cooked and deceptively filling! Sadly we did not have room to sample the dessert menu. Next time we will make sure to be starving before we order!

This is a fantastic hotel which is friendly, clean and inviting! The food is amazing given that Marco Pierre White company owns it! My only problem is with the rooms! They are just tired and need bringing into the 21st Century! If they did this then the hotel would be first class! Lets hoping they are refurbished during 2014. The staff are just brillant!

We hadn't been to the Wayford Bridge Inn for many years, we called in on the off chance with friends for a mid week lunch, and what an improvement there has been, very light and airy with a very relaxing atmosphere. We were greeted with a friendly smile from a member of the staff, you have the option to dine in the bar or the restaurant, the menu is the same for either, we went for the restaurant, tables well spaced out, the menu is varied and also there is a specials board all at reasonable prices, the food was hot, tasteful, and of good quality, unfortunately no room for desert, I would return, so therefore I would highly recommend.

We didn't stay at the hotel but ate twice in the bar/restaurant. Both times the food was excellent and the staff were so friendly, it was a pleasure to eat there, we were made to feel very welcome as was our dog Rosie.
