Good Pub Guide Recommended

Georgian bar-brasserie with plenty of history and character, airy rooms, real ales and imaginative food from breakfast onwards; bedrooms

Helpfully open and serving some kind of food all day, this well run place was the first site in 1780 for what became Barclays Bank. The various stylish rooms include the elegant bar (once the bank manager's office) with sofas and armchairs, a log fire with fender seating, Adnams Southwold, Barsham Bitter Old Bustard and a guest beer on handpump, 18 wines by the glass, 58 gins, 14 whiskies, interesting vodkas, cocktails and a farm cider; background music. The restaurant has antique chairs and tables on bare boards, an airy brasserie has sofas and armchairs around low tables and a big brick fireplace, and two other areas (one with fine panelling, the other with a half-size billiards table) have more open fires. The atmosphere throughout is gently civilised but easy-going and service is helpful and courteous. An outside area, flanked by magnificent wrought-iron gates, has fire pits for warmth on chillier evenings, and the riverside terrace (lovely sunsets) has an open-air cocktail bar in summer. Most of the lovely bedrooms overlook the river and breakfasts are first class. This is a splendid quayside spot and the Corn Exchange theatre and arts centre is just five minutes away. Sister pub is the Rose & Crown in Snettisham.
