Hello all
Newbie to the forum here - been reading for a few days thought I'd join and ask a question that I hope someone can answer. We're not newbies to boats or to the Broads but this is the first time we've been off on our own. We've got three nights over Easter in Brinks Duet and I am pathetically excited!!

Anyway my question. Other than the New Inn in Horning, can anyone recommend a (good) pub with bookable moorings?

We pick up in Wroxham and can't get through either Wrox or PH bridges. That's fine as its only three days. Will probably stooge about Ranworth, Salhouse, South Walsham, up as far as Ludham. I have an idea to spend an afternoon on a day boat through PH bridge too.

We used the New inn last year and loved the convenience of the booked moorings which took away the 'arrive by 11am to get a slot overnight' issue (see also: Ranworth!) but I'd like to know if there are any others.

Or just recommendations for where we can rock up mid-afternoon and be fairly sure of getting a mooring near a decent pub? Only a wee boat, it'll fit in somewhere, surely....

TIA
Liz

The Swan inn at Horning, the New Inn you know about.
Not sure if the Bridge at acle allows you to book moorings but there is usually space up river from the bridge on both sides of the river if the pubs moorings are full.

Edited because my brain works faster than my fingers.

Going off a tangent, slightly, arriving at a pub, gasping for a pint, only to find all the moorings booked has to be the most annoying feature of The Broads, IMHO of course!

Used to be half the fun of a Broads holiday, rushing for the best pub moorings, probably all full by two o'clock! Ah ha, that one looks full of nookie, best double up alongside her, hopefully  Evil Grin

Hi Liz,

You can book a mooring outside the Hotel Wroxham (they only have space for two large or 3 smaller boats)spaces are bookable at lunchtime and overnight moorings.

You used to be able to book the mooring directly outside the Ferry Inn at Stokesby at one time (not sure now).

Regards
Alan

Gretzky hi,

Could you please advise when you were last aware that The Swan inn at Horning would accept mooring reservations.  I personally booked and paid for 2 rooms for family members and was still declined a reserved mooring.
This was several years ago so hopefully they have changed their policy.
Thanks.

Kind Regards
Alan...
