This was our third visit.First visit good Second&Third standards seem to have dropped.Starters were better than the main meal.Two of us had Risoto we both thought it had been microwaved.On the plus side the staff were very friendly.We all wanted coffee,we were informed there was NO coffee.Italian with no coffee,I rest my case.

This used to be a pub in the middle of Blakeney that offered large helpingsof food. However it is no longer a pub and the web-site needs to be updated to reflect the fact that it is now an Italian restaurant & has been for some months.

Food - average pub food, perfectly edible, but nothing you'd remember, or make a journey back for. the surroundings are fine, again nothing that you would remember, all in all nothing makes this pub, somewhere you'd make the trip to visit, but nothing that would make you avoid it...

My Dad got a "take away" Sunday lunch from here on the day I came out of hospital with my new baby and it was delicious so we went back for a sit in one and were just as impressed. Lovely roast with a choice of two meats (we had a bit of each!) and all the trimmings inc yorkshire... More
