We arranged to have Sunday lunch here with friends after having stayed at the hotel and enjoyed both the room and the breakfast. I was very disappointed by both the service and the food. We had to remind the waitress about half of our drinks order which had not appeared. We then had a long wait before getting our starters.... More

Following an invitation from some old friends to meet up, the suggested the Parson Woodforde which was an old favourite many years ago seemed good idea. It was left to our friends to make the reservation which was duly booked for 8.15pm on Saturday evening as they knew one of the members of staff it sounded great. We all arrived... More

We had a table of 4 booked for 1.00pm, planning to eat a Sunday roast with visiting family. The wait for our order to be taken was unacceptable. In fact we saw orders being taken for tables that arrived after we did. Three of us ordered starters which took 45 minutes to arrive. Bare in mind the restaurant wasn't exceptionally... More

We visited the Parson Woodforde for the first time recently as the second stop of our fortnightly tour of restaurants in Norfolk. We have rated the restaurant by the following categories: 1. Service 60/100 The staff were pleasant enough, but we waited almost an hour for our food despite the restaurant area being pretty empty. 2. Food 43/100 The duck... More

This used to be a regular pub of mine to visit whilst out cycling. And whilst the beer selection is good, and the pub is decorated to a nice standard, I've been let down by the availability of food on a couple of occasions meaning we had to resort to a packet of crisps to keep us going! I now... More

This is a new find for us, absolutely love this place. We enjoyed it so much we've booked for Christmas day!!! Pub has a nice feeling to it, staff are welcoming and the food is delicious. Beer and wine is good also. A*

Went for Sunday dinner with a big group of my family. Venue is nice and the beer was in good condition. I was shocked to see the prices on the menu so was expecting some exceptional food but how wrong I was. Roast potatoes must have been hanging around for days. One tiny portion of Macaroni Cheese between 7 of... More

We booked a table for Saturday evening for 6. The back dining room was not being used, but the front pub area was quite busy, so our table was set up by a side entrance where people vacated for a smoke, not pleasant and also made it draughty. We had olives and bread for starters, plenty of olives. All our... More
