The food is consistently good and there is no need to go to Norwich. If you want good quality home cooked pub food it's great. They carry some guest and local beers and there is always a good welcome. The portions are huge so share... try the stilton mushrooms but share a portion or your done for!

This is a very cosy place, good atmosphere, parking and nice staff. It is very clear the management are trying to make this a "go to" place and yes, we will return as the effort is there and we do try to support small town businesses however, the food was overall ok but not good. The rhubarb crumble was not...

Enforced stay due to house works. Rooms are very comfortable, although bathroom was tiny. King size bed. Pub and rooms dog friendly (additional charge per dog in bedroom). Food remains a good standard.

I needed somewhere in the Watton area to stay as I was working at a local business the following day. I found The Willow House on LateRooms and it looked appealing.

The first class quality of the food more than warrented the price, all in all I for one will return to the...

Very dated and desperately need updating and not that clean either, luckily only had to put up with it for one night. Breakfast was good though. Went at a later date to try the restaurant,one word,...

Only stayed here for one night to attend a party locally but was really impressed. Expected a small guest house type place but there's so much more to it having a popular pub with good ales and restaurant on the premises and friendly staff. The rooms were in a separate annexe and were spacious and comfortable. Morning breakfast was tasty...
