A dream come true for former school buddies Harry Farrow and Rowan Glennie, who reunited to buy and refurbish this popular pub. The lads still have plenty of joint experience behind them, which they put to impressive effect in both the bar, where Norfolk breweries Winter's and Woodforde's, and Suffolk's Adnams provide the real ales, and the restaurant. With East Anglian produce, particularly fish and game, being the kitchen's priority, try chunky smoked haddock and brown shrimp chowder with sourdough bread, followed by roasted loin of venison with Anna potatoes, beetroot purée, spinach, piccolo parsnips and jus. Or there's the vegetarian home-made cheddar gnocchi, butternut squash, wild mushrooms and rocket and pine nut pesto. Round off with local apple and rhubarb crumble and home-made custard. Sixteen wines are sold by the glass, although bottles won't break the bank. Inside you can buy tickets for a boat trip to see the seals just along the coast at Blakeney Point.
