Broadshaven on the up!

New tennants of this once grubby old hole are doing a mint job of bringing this place and potter into the 21st century, Un-molested lager/beer are on tap, staff are very friendly, professional down to earth and game for a laugh. Keep up the excellent work and we will see you again soon.

       
Mooring Description :
There is a couple of riverside moorings available if you can get under the bridge otherwise plenty to be had at herbie woods yard 100 yards away. Neither are to far to stumble after sinking a few. I did however ask if all of they're glasses had holes in the bottom as my beer never seemed to last too long
Food Description :
Chilli to die for, proper home made too with perfectly cooked rice. Not forgetting the Ham Egg and chips that was also unbeleivably perfect in every way and the Mrs is rarely wrong....

Broads-hell Tavern

I'm sure hell is a better place than this. We didn't find anywhere on the few places we visited that were bad, apart from this place. After a long wait for someone to turn up, we were served by a miserable man (seemed like the landlord) that simply couldn't care less. The place stank, it reminded me of going to the smokey football club during my childhood. We ordered drinks, abandoned any idea of eating here, went outside and necked them quickly as we really didn't want to hang about.

A pub not to be re-visited

We have been to this so called pub a few times over the past few years, but only if the weather is o.k. for us to sit ouitside. Beer not bad but that's all its got going for it.

Excellent moorings at Woods Boat yard.

The Broadshovel (sorry haven)

Having visited the broadshaven we found it to be run down, dirty and smelt disgusting. The amusement arcade was a joke. On a good note the beer was good although you had to eat it outside because of the smell. What a shame a pub in such area could be as horrific as the broadshaven.

       
Mooring Description :
Ideal moorings. Easy Access to pub. excellent views of bridge.
Food Description :
Disgusting. Cheap and tacky.

The Worst Pub On The Broads?

Not a pleasant experience. Filthy dirty with our feet sticking to the floor! Surly disinterested staff & intrusive entertainment(?). An overall feeling of decaying 1970's Butlins that desperately needs an upgrade. We deserve better than this.

       
Mooring Description :
Extensive moorings either side of PH bridge.
Food Description :
Didn't eat here & certainly wouldn't!

DISGUSTED

THIS PUB NEEDS THE ATTENTION OF HEALTH AND SAFETY OFFICERS.IT IS THE WORST PUB ON THE B EAUTIFUL BROADS.THERE SHOULD BE A GOVERNMENT HEALTH POSTER ON THE OUTSIDE.CLOSE IT DOWN OR GET SOMEONE WITH SELF RESPECT TO RUN IT

       
Mooring Description :
MOORING IS VERY GOOD IF YOU ARRIVE EARLY AFTERNOON
Food Description :
the meals are just slopped on a plate and are inedible. the staff are grubby and untidy,and barstaff look permanently the worse for wear.WE HAD THE MISFORTUNE OF VISITING IT SEPT 2005

Our thoughts on the Broadshaven.

We have just had our winter break in a chalet along the river bank and spent almost every night in the Broadshaven. We found the atmosphere to be rather good, very friendly and helpful staff. After speaking to the owners who were very friendly, we found out that over the past three years alot of repairs and rebuilding work had been under taken on the pub itself, also the bar had been gutted and fully rebuilt which was very nice.

       
Mooring Description :
We hired a dayboat from a local boatyard and used it to get to the pub of an evening. There are lots of mooring spaces around the bridge area.
Food Description :
We ate at the pub most nights because the wife was feeling a bit lazy. The waiting time was reasonable and the food we couldnt fault for the price. I would recomend the Sunday carvery!

After spending 10's of 1000's on the pub, the new owners are starting to make some headway. The beer has improved imeasurable over the past four years. Give 'em some support and hopefully it will continue to improve.

pub

Feel a little sorry for the owners,since buying this pub it has been falling down around them. New floors have been fitted Walls have collapsed and part of the roof is falling in years of neglect have taken their toll.

Grotty Pub

The place lacks charm, and has a very run down look both inside and out. Best bet is to get a beer then site on the grass by th eriver and watch the boats try and get through the bridge.

       
Mooring Description :
Although it's on "the other side" of the bridge there are plenty of good moorings in Potter
