“Nice stay but room awkward to reach.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2012

We visited the Inn on a Groupon voucher. We were told that we couldn't check in until 5pm which was a little disappointing as most places allow you to book in much earlier. The hosts Maria and John were very pleasant and accomodating and made us feel very welcome. We purchased a meal in the bar that evening and it was adequate and well cooked.
We were put in 'The Granary' which was at the top of the building, up three flights of uneven stairs - the last flight being very steep which could, for some people be a safety issue. Fortunately we were able, with some trepidation, to manage climbing this last flight!
The breakfast was ample and nicely presented.
Unfortunately there was only a very small mirror in the bathroom which my wife found somewhat inadequate and awkwardly positioned. TV was also awkwardly placed.
Would recommend for one or two night stay if not in The Granary Room.

Room Tip: Dont choose The Granary Room unless you have a good head for heights and experience in climbing!!

Also visitted on a Groupon offer. Wonderful food and service, very welcoming and helpful staff. A quaint, large room with double and single bed. Although our room was directly above the pub you couldn't hear loud noises. The floors are slightly uneven, but this is due to the age of the property.

Room Tip: A warning that some of the rooms have a shared bathroom, this was okay for us as we were only stoppi...

We chose this inn due to a Groupon offer. The Inn is about 10 miles from Norwich out in the countryside.

Arriving late afternoon we had booked a double room and were put into the Regency Room. Climbing the stairs which had various cambers and needs to be negotiated carefully we opened the door on an enormous room with both a double and a single bed.

The inn itself is approx 400 year old and delightfully old-fashioned with exposed wooden beams and columns. The Inn is managed by excellent hosts Maria and John who were very friendly and welcomed us the moment we walked in and this continued throughout our stay.
The breakfast was excellent and john went out of his way to accommodate our requests..

Lovely old building with modern facilities, spacious room and a very comfy bed.

Slightly off the beaten track but would definitely recommend for a one or two night stay, to allow you to explore the Norwich town itself and the beautiful villages and countryside around it
