We visited this pub as we live nearby and wanted to check it out for future reference It was very busy with diners as expected but there was space to sit down. My husband checked out the somewhat limited selection of lagers and beers and came to let me know what was available. The woman at the bar yelled across... More

We had Sunday lunch here today (roast beef 😋). Fantastic home cooked food. Hot and tasty. Agree the decor is dated but that's what makes it special. Too few pubs like this gem left. The pub was full of friendly locals warm and cosy. What not to like ? Will return soon for more of the same.

A group of us met at this pub for lunch. The food was typical pub food, the staff were very unfriendly particularly the cook who was extremely rude. One of our group e cook mentioned that they hadn't had their pudding, the cook then brought the pudding out, threw the bowl on the table and slammed the spoon down at... More

Friendly team, great food, realistic prices, even dog-friendly. Serving ladies are a real hoot - what characters. Outstanding fun.

Went here as a birthday treat, oh dear. Food was ok, but with a dog wandering through the restaurant, encouraged by the proprietor. Will not be returning

This is an interesting, relatively unsophisticated, cosy, friendly pub which serves delicious and well-priced food. Unlike a lot of British pubs, the food I had was not overcooked and drowning in fat but was tasty and hot having been freshly cooked. Very yummy!

The two star rating on this review is for the friendly staff in this quirky pub. The name in itself attracts an interest but we couldn't find anything in this pub which explained its very unusual name - definitely missing a trick with that one as I am sure the name in itself attracts customers (which was the reason we...

We 'accidentally' came upon this pub - but we will definitely do a detour to it next time we are in the Swaffham area. People (and their dogs) are made welcome in this traditional establishment - where the emphasis is on properly cooked, tasty food and reasonably priced drinks. Sunday lunch is available - but you will have to book... More
