We believe one of our greatest assets is our magnificent Broadside setting where you can enjoy the stunning views whatever the season.

In summer, enjoy alfresco dining from our sunny outdoor terrace or when the weather is a bit chillier take a table inside in our bright and airy contemporary dining area looking out to the Broad. Do keep a look out for the resident family of herons and the wonderful range of iconic Norfolk wildlife that we share this beautiful area with!



We change our menus seasonally to ensure we make the most of the wonderful produce that is in season. We’re big on flavour and use only the freshest
