We are coming to the Northern Broads for a week at the start of May - we have holidayed on The Broads many times but not since 2010.

Can I get your views re the places to eat that I have in mind that are based on my previous experiences that could of course be out of date and also some more recent TripAdvisor reviews?

River Bure Cottage at Horning - always been brilliant before for fresh fish
Ship Inn at South Walsham
Mermaids Slipper at Stalham
Fur & Feather at Woodbastwick

Plus any advice re other must visit eateries that I have missed from this list would be greatly appreciated

Thanks a lot in advance

The southern rivers tend to offer the best choice of eateries but two not to miss in the north are the Recruiting Sergeant at Horsted, the best eatery on the Northern Rivers closely followed by he Bridge Inn.

Of the places you mention we tried The Ship in South Walisham last summer and had the best food of the holiday there.
We also ate at The Bridge Inn and The Maltsters which were both good. In all we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food we found on the Broads. Our eldest has nut and egg allergies and I'm no fan of red meat/burgers and chips so we're probably not the easiest to please!

Recommending eateries is always difficult because people have such differering expectations.

We live locally and spread our custom about a bit, but our current favourites are:

By far our current favourite:  The King's Head Coltishall - three course set lunch £13.50 last Friday was excellent - tasty food and excellent service.  Having visited the pub half a dozen times lunchtimes and evenings we have never found it less than busy.  Always a good sign.  Edging toward fine dining.

Wayford Bridge Inn, Consistently good.  Friendly staff and good service.  Varied and extensive menu.

The Oasis Stalham, probably the best Indian around.

The Norfolk Mead let us down on our last visit and being slightly hard of hearing I find the dining room acoustics uncomfortable for conversation.

I won't mention those many we have now crossed off our "must give a second chance to" list.

You should be aware that the chef who was working at the Ship has moved on and that the format has changed to make it similar to the other Colchester Inns, such as the Recruiting Sergeant at Horstead.

Everyone else thinks that that is a great idea but personally I hate that formatted style where the menu is standardised and not as it was before. They have changed it, IMHO, to a very ordinary eating place, from a very good one, but that their prerogative as owners.

Good 'ol rule of thumb re eating establishments is follow the chef , not the owners and for those local in the area pop along to the Mill at Stoke Holy Cross for an example of a really top class establishment. Its priced accordingly but a great place for an eating experience - well i like it!!!

I'm not quite sure what you mean by that MM, has the Recruiting Sergeant changed to set menu recently? I was there a few weeks ago and the evening dinner menu had at least twenty main options, plus another 15 or so on the specials board? What I really like there(and why we drive 400 miles round trip to visit) are the choice of starters. I love my starters, more so than puds nowadays and they have some delightful combinations.
