Good Pub Guide Recommended

White-painted, traditional inn with bars and dining rooms, real ales, popular food and super surrounding walks; bedrooms

There's a great deal of character in the rambling rooms here and plenty of space for eating and drinking. The main bar has beams, big lamps, brass and copper jugs and pans, cushioned window seats, chairs and settles around dark sturdy tables on quarry tiles and a woodburning stove; the antique penny-in-the-hole game is hidden under a bench cushion. A second bar, favoured by locals, is smaller, with some fine carving around the counter. Greene King Abbot and IPA, Norfolk Brewhouse Moon Gazer Amber Ale and Woodfordes Mardlers Mild and Wherry on handpump, good wines by the glass and nine gins; background music and board games. The formal entrance hall has sofas and fender seats by a big open fire, there's another room with more sofas and a cylindrical woodburner and also a simply furnished dining room. A quarry-tiled conservatory (used for eating) has fairy lights and steps that lead up to the back garden with grey-painted picnic-sets and a couple of cabanas; out in front are more picnic-sets. Bedrooms are warm and comfortable and you can walk from here to the salt marshes about a mile away.
