Called in here on the off chance with friends and had a super lunch. The welcome was friendly, the atmosphere buzzing and the service very good. We sat in the bar area and enjoyed a bit of people watching. Super food, beautifully presented. We will certainly be back.

One of the best meals I've ever had. Gorgeous food, lovely restaurant, excellent service. Stayed overnight in one of their rooms in the Old Bakery - comfortable pretty room, quiet even though it is on the road (apart from the church bells!). Would definitely stay and eat here again.

We went for a meal when staying at another inn nearby and visiting nature reserves during my birthday trip. We ate in the bar area although there's also restaraunt seating. Food was generally very good. I enjoyed the mussels and a fish 'signature dish' although the halibut was substituted with a cheaper catch and it wasn't terribly filling. Not cheap,... More

Enjoyed a very well put together meal here. The dogs enjoyed a run out on Brancaster Beach beforehand, and then the doggie food on offer here- yep there is a menu for dogs too. Excellent Red Poll rib-eye steak, the chicken that came with the pie was cooked to perfection. Very smart puddings the Café Gourmand was fab - a... More

We thought we'd try the Orange tree to see if it was worthy of the awards it has won. We was not disappointed. To start,we had the mussels and the O/t prawn cocktail. And for mains we had Halibut and Guinnea fowl three ways which in my eyes was one of the best mains i've ever eaten ! The place... More

Visited for pre valentine meal- very very nice! Service was very good main meal exceptional if not rather heavy on the smoked garlic dauphinoise- rather took over the other divine flavours, which was a shame. My husband had the lamb- outstanding. Desserts were out of this world- clearly primarily a pastry chef 😀

First night we had spaghetti seafood and the 12oz rump steak the food is amazing, cooked to perfection, the service is spot on as well. The wine choice is good with a wide variety of choice whether... More

This place has been voted dining pub of the year for the last few years in Norfolk, we were not disappointed. We booked by email as we were not sure if we would get in or not, chose the second sitting for 20:45. We arrived slightly early, our table was ready and waiting. Staff friendly and welcoming and the food... More

We had an evening meal celebrating a family birthday and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The staff were very polite, attentive and helpful and we did not experience any long waiting times between courses. At the same time we did not feel that we were being hurried in any way. The venue has a very relaxed atmosphere. The three courses of... More
