Voted the nation’s favourite family pub, our 18th century village local on the Norfolk coast serves our own real ales from our microbrewery Brancaster Brewery, home cooked wholesome food, our own Smokehouse specials, stone baked pizzas and ice cream from our garden beach hut (and not forgetting the largest selection of rum on the coast!)

Families, muddy or sandy boots and muddy paws welcome in our pub which is at the heart of village life in scenic North Norfolk, just across the road from Brancaster Staithe harbour and beach.  

Our hearty menu features lots of great pub classics, fresh local seafood and stone baked pizzas. We have our very own Jolly Smokehouse and our chilli beef brisket is something pretty special, but don’t just take our word for it read all about us here*. 

No booking required (unless you are a party of 10 or more, in which case call us on 01485 210314 to bagsy your table). Walk-ins very welcome. 

There is a good selection of real ales including ‘Brancaster Best’, ‘Oyster Catcher’, ‘Malthouse Bitter’, ‘Sharpie K12’ and ‘The Wreck’ from our very own 5 barrel Brancaster Brewery which produces small batches of top quality ale using the finest local Maris Otter barley grown at Wells-next-the-Sea. We also have some cracking wines, the biggest and best selection of rum on the coast and soft drinks including Norfolk Cordials, which are made locally with fresh natural ingredients. 

Come and relax with a real ale or drink in front of a roaring fire in winter or enjoy warmer days in our fun enclosed garden, great for the kids with its giant children’s play area, treasure chest and ‘Jolly Roger boat’. There are lots of seating areas and deck chairs for the grown ups to enjoy a beer or two. Our Eat, Drink and be Jolly themed garden beach huts area an outside service area. Order from the menu food or drink here, get the kids an ice cream, select from our summer BBQ menu or relax on the deck in our Jolly deck chairs.
