Great little pub

Nice little pub, good food and large beer Garden opposite. Its great on a hot sunny evening, to walk from the moorings, about 15 mins across the field from horesy . As the quite road is between the pub and beer garden, you need to keep an eye n kids, if you are in the garden

Mooring Description :
The mooring are along a narrow dyke so not suitable for larger boats, you can turn and get water at the end. Really good feature is the shower and toilets, you need to buy a token in the shop for the shower, they are clean and modern. You have to pay to moor, the guy sits in his car at the end
Food Description :
All good food, no compaints

eu de toilette bloc!

A fascinating little pub with interesting menu

Mooring Description :
Good moorings but in a very narrow dyke. Bit of a treck back when you have had a few but worth it!
Food Description :
Interesting menu if the results were perhaps a little disappointing but produce was very fresh. We sat at first in the dining room but the smell of toilet blocks from the adjoining gents lavatory was really very off-putting and we adjourned to the bar. Most certainly a restaurant with atmosphere!

A gem of a pub.

Super little pub. Just sit outside alongside the road on a nice day and imagine your an old Norfolk boy (or girl) from many moons ago. There once used to be so many pubs like this in Norfolk but most have now sadly gone. Nice garden area and separate field (yes, field) for kids to run round in.

Mooring Description :
Good moorings at Horsey Mere staithe
Food Description :
Home made, simple but delicious.

A Jewel in the middle of Norfolk

I was surprised at the friendliness of all the staff. From the landlord and his wife to the wairesses, they were curteous. The choice of menu was excellent, my wife and I will most certainly visit "Nelson Head" whenever we are in the area.

Nelson Head

A true gem of a pub with excellent Woodfordes ales. Friendly staff and good service. Why is it called Nelson Head and not Nelson's Head though?

Mooring Description :
Horsey Staithe - £2.50 on the starboard side for a short stay, more on the port side. Good moorings, shop and toilet/shower block nearby.
Food Description :
Have eaten here for many years under 3 landlords, the food has always been good, it still is and now better value than ever. I love the plaice myself but all the dishes are good.

A gem of a rural pub

This is a classic unspoilt rural pub full of atmosphere. Goodish (15 mins) walk from Horsey staithe but well worth it. Woodforde's beers on offer and well kept. Lovely semi overgrown beergarden at the side of the pub and bench seating at the front. A perfect stop over when walking back from the beach. Recommended.

Mooring Description :
Nearest moorings at Horsey staithe. These are limited due to the number of private craft moored in the staithe.
Food Description :
Tried filled baguettes. Crusty warm bread and plenty of filling. A touch expensive at around the £6 mark but very enjoyable.
