The Good Food Guide 2016 Local Gem The sheltered garden makes this traditional road side pub reliably popular in summer, but it makes a snug setting in winter - welcoming fires, friendly, unpretentious service and good food....honest pub grub ... stone-baked pizzas eat in or takeaway ... bowls of local mussels to be washed down with Brancaster Brewery ales
Michelin eating out in pubs Characterful rustic pub with a welcoming open fire. The simple menu ranges from light bites to freshly made pizzas and good old pub classics. Arrive early, as they don't take bookings; have an ice cream from the hut while you wait.
