We are recently married and as a wedding gift, we were lucky enough to be given a red letter overnight B&B country retreat in Norfolk. Because it was a special occasion, we wanted somewhere special to eat and we found it. The Mermaid;'s slipper is a beautiful restaurant and they obviously have everything mastered. From the beautiful aesthetics of the building, to the incredible service and amazing food, we felt treated as soon as we entered. The two ladies who were serving (and I can only apologise for not remembering their names, Ii think one of them may have been called Janet) went out of their way to ensure we were looked after. We had drinks in a gorgeous fire lit and cosy room and were only seated when our food was ready. Nothing was too much trouble and the extra touch of meeting the chef and him asking how our meal was just finished the night off perfectly. You must visit this restaurant if you are nearby. It's amazing.

Visited here on Saturday evening with hubby. First time we have eaten here although have visited on many occasions for a nice comfortable relaxed drink. Carol and Richard are excellent hosts and the food is extremely good. So nice to have somewhere with a bit of a special feel to it. Perfect place to visit if you want somewhere for that 'special' evening. Well done!

We were away in Norfolk as a family of 10 to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary, and after some research prior to our holiday and reviewing previous reviews we decided to booked The Mermaids Slipper for the evening of their anniversary. From the very first point of contact with the restaurant to the evening itself the service we received was outstanding. Richard, Carol and the other members of staff thoroughly looked after us.
We arrived and had our pre dinner drinks in a lovely lounge area on comfy sofas and we're led through to our table when our starters were ready. The table had been decorated with table confetti, which was a lovely touch.
as for the meal itself, everything was outstanding, We ordered a variety of dishes from the menu and everyone loved it. My Dad said it was the best fillet steak he'd every had!
as for Carol and the other waitress (sorry I can't remember her name), they honestly made the evening, they were so professional and fun and they worked seamlessly together.
On our way home fromNorfolk on Sunday my phone rang, and it was Carol thanking us, for making their evening so enjoyable! Honestly I was speechless, such a nice touch.
As a family we honestly can't praise the Mermaids Slipper enough and thank them so much for making our very special family celebration so memorable our only wish is that we lived nearer so that we could visit again.
If you're thinking of visiting the Mermaids Slipper, do you won't be disappointed.
