Choice of Home made food good beer and good customer service with a big garden with plenty of seating and dog friendly! Looking forward to some sunny summer days in that garden! Would certainly recommend going!

Just had Sunday lunch with the family including 4 and 6 year old grandchildren for whom no meal is complete without ketchup!When they asked for some it took a while to come and we assumed the staff were busy.However when I thanked the person who brought it in a nice little bowl he said as they didn't have any fresh the staff opened twelve sachets and put them in a bowl rather than put sachets on the table.wow!Thats what I call service,and the food itself was great too.Proud to call this our local,we will be taking all our visitors from now on.

Warm welcome, excellent menu, food brilliant, traditional home cooking. Interior a little tired but that is the charm of this place, very olde world, traditional pub. Obviously frequented by locals and most people in there seemed to know each other. Not keen on there being dogs in there however, but will def visit again.

Room Tip: Didnt stay, just visited for lunch.

We called into this pub for a snack lunch en-route to Norwich. A large pub with outdoor seating and plenty of parking. The bar was very welcoming with a large log fire burning in the grate. Clearly popular with the locals during our visit. Freshly prepared sandwiches and light snacks available at reasonable prices and judging by the size of plates home-made meat pies and vegetables being served at a nearby table, generous portions as well. A good selection of local ales and the usual lagers on tap.Accomodation available.

We - a party of 2 couples -visited the Sorrel Horse on a Saturday evening and were pleasantly surprised at how busy it was. Fortunately we had booked so our table was waiting for us. The food on offer is typical pub fare with a printed menu and specials on the blackboard. Following our starters of whitebait and prawn cocktail (old fashioned, but all the better for it) we, all four of us, had the fillet steak which was very good indeed. It was a decent sized steak and perfectly cooked to our requirements. It was simply accompanied with chips (very good) mushrooms and a side salad. Excellent value at £16. Overall pretty impressive and certainly worth another visit.

The pub is very nice, with nice seating areas and very nice decorations on the wall and fireplace.
The food was average. My partner had trout and I had a burger. The beef burger was not very nice, but the chips were amazing!
The banoffee pie was average.
The service was a bit slow at the bar (you have to order and pay there first), but the girl who was serving was very nice and smiley.
The toilets were very clean and smelled very nice.
I really liked the environment, but they need to improve the food.

Went to the sorrel horse for a quiet Sunday lunch with family. When ordering food we were told by the young girl behind the bar there would be a "small wait", which would have been fine. However after well over an hour of waiting at a table that hadn't been cleaned from the previous users (even though the staff behind the bar had been given their lunch and there was barely anyone sitting down to eat) we decided to leave and find another place to eat. When going to the bar to ask for our card back and to pay for our drinks I ended up paying a bill for £18 for two drinks and some snacks... With the staff member assuring me that if we stayed the food would not be much longer. I would hate to see what a "long wait" would be like. Never going back again. Maybe they were having a bad day or staffing issues, but I wouldn't recommend
