Moored on the free moorings at South Walsham broads and had a leisurely stroll to The Ship Inn for lunch. Good choice of food on the menu to choose from. Food was very good as well as the service.

Just had one of the best breakfasts. Partner had a full breakfast and I had smoked haddock and poached eggs - delicious. Staff are very friendly, efficient and so welcoming. Strongly recommend for lunch and dinner. A great experience.
