4 High Street, BLAKENEY, NR25 7AL
Since the 17th century, this former coaching inn has been tucked away among Blakeney's flint-built fishermen's cottages, a short, steepish amble up from the small tidal harbour. The tastefully appointed, Adnams-stocked bar is stylish yet informal, the conservatory is naturally bright - both are eating areas, where the same menu and daily specials apply. Locally sourced food is a given, especially the lobster, crab and mussels from village fishermen, meats and game from Norfolk estates, soft fruit, salads, asparagus and free-range eggs from local smallholders, while rod- and line-caught mackerel and sea bass find their way through the kitchen door in summer. For a light lunch choose perhaps a ciabatta sandwich, a seasonal salad; Letzer's smoked cod and Cajun fishcake with mango dressing; or crispy squid rings with tom-yum mayo. For something a bit more substantial, how about a White Horse classic - Norfolk spring lamb hotpot; or roast hake, creamed mash, braised fennel, sauté wild mushrooms and crab bisque?
