“Mixed feelings...”
Reviewed 18 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We tried this pub for supper during our hols but didn't return another time as we were a bit disappointed with the food and interior. The inside is quite basic and dated but clean enough - an outside beer garden and dogs welcome inside and out. The owners are friendly and service quite quick. Only a handful of diners when we were there on a Monday. The veg lasagne was probably microwaved and hard pasta layer at the bottom. The surf 'n turf we had was a bit of a rip off - £12.95 for a steak, or £17.95 with 5 bits of scampi. Similar price to better pubs in the locality but nowhere near the value sadly.

I live in Martham and stopped off here for some lunch with the wife and kids (actually in pub at moment). My lamb shank was very nice, lamb juice mint gravy was lovely to, wife's ribs were also very nice and the sons steak also great. 2 kids meals were also good.
Basically it's very good food for the money and friendly owner/staff. Right that's it, best I get back to my beer.

“Good spot for Broads boating visitors”
Reviewed 23 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Walked up ( 5minutes ) from The moorings and enjoyed a lovely steak and a warm welcome. Beer was good and a nice atmosphere. The pub doesn't feature in the "Broadcaster" newspaper, so visitors to the waterways may not know it's available.
Well done Landlord.

“A really nice place.”

We live locally, and although past retirement age, we still work. Our one pleasure in life fifty weeks of the year is Friday night cocktail hour. The other two weeks we are on holiday!
Our normal port of call has closed for the winter so tonight we tried the Lion. It was excellent. We were a little early for food but had a couple of drinks ahead of time. Then we had the cod and chips which were excellent.
The whole place was spotlessly clean and the landlord and his wife were very friendly.
My only gripe was that the plates were cold but the food was so piping hot it did not matter.
I think we will be back.
I see they do bed and breakfast......I can't comment on that obviously but I would imagine the same standard would apply.
In finishing....I don't think the landlord was ugly and his wife was very smart.
Excellent.
