- Fishermans Return
A friendly 17th century pub situated in centre of attractive North Norfolk coastal village, a short walk from the beach, with a traditional brick and flint exterior and interesting memorabilia inside.
Log fires in winter make for a cosy atmosphere, and an extensive range of excellent home prepared meals may be taken in the bar or smaller dining room. A separate function/family room can cater for all occasions and there are six en-suite bedrooms available all year.
Three or four real ales are usually available, mostly from Woodforde's with occasional local guests. There's a beer festival in August (2017 at least!) and the cider is Old Rosie from Westons.
Close to the beach and the Norfolk Broads, and Great Yarmouth is only eight miles away.
