Hi Everyone,
Looking for some advice regarding eating out on riverside inn's. My wife and I are hiring a boat from Stallham for a short break starting August 6th for a few days. Our intention if possible is to eat our meals out and not take on board much food. I was wondering what the general rules are for mooring outside pubs.I understand it is busy season and I know to get there early which is fine. Are pubs accessible if I was to moor up or down river in Horning for example? I don't mind paying and I don't mind if we moor for the duration of the meal and then go someplace else in a quieter area for the night. I believe that one pub only allows you to moor  if a minimum of three eat there. Is this the same rule for all pubs? Any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.Also would it be beneficial to book in advance? if so how far in front. Really looking forward to this holiday and found this forum to be a great source of information.
Worse case scenario is that we cant get a mooring place  and end up hungry.
Thanks in Advance.
Paul. Smile

Hi, Paul, Welcome to the forum,

Generally moorings at pubs are on a first-come basis, and can't be pre-booked. However there are exceptions, notably the New Inn at Horning, and the Bridge Inn at Acle (Where moorings are free to Forum members Smile ). Usually charges will apply, these vary by pub, and some are refundable on food and/or drinks. How far in advance you could book I'm afraid I can't say. Moorings at Horning pubs and on the river are minimal, and you'll be lucky to find a space right outside one at your time of visiting. If you do fancy Horning, the New Inn pre-booked is about your only chance. However if you moor anywhere in Horning, all the pubs are within walking distance of each other, and the hire yards, where you'll be able to moor at almost any time, other than Friday pm or Saturday.

I'm not an expert in this field, but this weekend is our Forum meet-up at Ranworth, so expect more answers when the true experts have recovered their senses, and returned to the cyber-world. (Might take a while Evil Grin !).

Regards, Ray.

If it's neither here, nor there, then where is it?

G'Day Paul

I booked the New Inn about 2 weeks ago for the 12th of July

I sent them an email giving date, boat name, approx arrival time, and a booking for 2 for dinner at 6.30pm

They sent me an email back 2 days later confirming all was in place



Regards
Dave Downunder

Simplest answer is to get a dinghy along with the boat. That way you can mudweight in any of the broads with a pub nearby. Salhouse, Ranworth, Womack etc. Or simply moor on the opposite bank in Horning, now that the ferry no longer has a ferry...

This means don't have to arrive early, don't have to pay, don't have to listen to engines being run at 11pm or 06am. And its fun too.

Life is too short

"Hi" Paul,(Welcome to the forum )
Not sure what day or how long you may be out on your boat for, but as you up at Stalham why not just take the boat for a run and moor up at Stalham and have a meal in the mermaid slipper (1st Class meal) to start your Holiday or even round the Wayford bridge Hotel or round to Sutton Pub, moorings should be okay and then if you book in at the new Inn for the following night( again good food and gus will be waiting for you ) this will give loads of time to come down the River Ant and have a look around Horning, then onto Wroxham and come back to Salhouse and walk to Woodfords brewery ( Great Place good Meals)as already said Acle Bridge you can moor up outside or The Lion at Thurne Dyke or up to womack and walk up to Ludham village to the pub ( again good food) this you could do easy in 4 days. enjoy your time and hope you come back again for longer.

Kindest Regards Mike

I know you say you are going to eat out each evening, but I would suggest that you do have an emergency meal on board just in case you do have problems finding a suitable mooring.  We always have something that can be taken home again (and usually is), but on a couple of occasions it has come in useful, espacially if you're mooring somewhere that only has one place to eat.  We once moored somewhere on the south and went to the pub in the evening, only to find it was closed for a private party.  By this time it was going dark and too late to move on.  We were glad of our tin of curry and microwave rice lol.

Best advice I can give is as appeared many times re busy times is to get in as others are leaving especially for evening ie around 3pm and 11am for lunch

Thank you all so much for your feedback. They are all great replies and I will ponder my options.
I think I will take a couple of emergency pot noodles just in case. LOL

We tend to do pub in the late afternoon for dinner/tea easy mooring then move to a quite mooring no noise and get up when u wake up.
