“Disappointing breakfast!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

This was our 3rd visit to this hotel for breakfast, and unfortunately the standard and quality of food had reduced each time. £22 for 2 x All you can eat breakfast, then they have the audacity to charge an additional £1.99 each for tea and coffee. The sausages tasted cheap, the bacon was leathery and the toast was pre-coked and was rather soggy.....on the bonus side, the eggs were lovely. Would I go again.......not sure!

“Sunday Carvery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

On first walking in thought we'd not get a table. Wrong.

Thought the Carvery would be average (as most are). Wrong

Thought the service would be naff. Wrong.

Thought I'd leave feeling received poor value. Wrong.

Great location. Good food. Good beer. Good service. Great value. Not often I praise anything but in this case The Wherry deserves great praise indeed. Cracking job guys

“impressive place, shame about the food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

Because mooring was tight we booked into the Wherry Hotel. This is a carvery and I am afraid the food must have been out for some time. To be honest it was late in the afternoon there was plenty of choice but it was dried up and I did not enjoy it. Perhaps if you arrived earlier it would have been much better. The hotel was impressive with stained glass windows and lots of room.

“Good fayre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

This place is a long established restaurant in Oulton Broad. It has great views of the water and boats. The food is served quickly and is good but its not always consistent. One day great, the next mediocre. Vegetables can be rock hard, seriously. Theres also an odd set up re ordering at the 2 bars with little organisation and staff not knowing what each other are doing. We can thoroughly recommend the chips and the ice cream sundaes.
