We intend to spend a night above How Hill(Barton, Dilham Stalham area) this weekend.

Could anyone recommend a location where we can moor and find a pub which does food.

Many Thanks

Perry

Hi Perry,

Above How Hill, You have the Sutton Staithe Hotel, which feels nothing like a hotel, more like a pub, and the Neatishead White Horse, assuming you don't want the long chug to Dilham!

Never eaten in the White Horse (tried to once but the kitchen was out of order after a lorry crashed in to the pub!!!), and the moorings there are rather limited unless you fancy a good stretch of the legs from Gays staithe!

Sutton Staithe hotel however is a personal favourite of mine. There's plenty of mooring space, though I wouldn't leave it too late! A nice big green, food is of a good quality / value, although there's nothing too exotic, just standard english pub fayre (Scrumpy Pork Hock.....Mmmmmmmm). Most importantly I find it a warm atmosphered friendly place, especially if you stay up and have a drink with the locals!!

Wayford Bridge Hotel is worth a visit IMHO as is Sutton Staithe Hotel (hasten to add that these comments are from memory as we can't get up the Ant these days...boat too high).

Can't comment on Stalham as we have never eaten there.

The pubs in Stalham aren't upto much, but the hotel at the end of the High street, does good food.

The Cross Keys at Dilham does cheap basic food, nice trip along the river to get there to.

As John says the Wayford Hotel is nice with a choice of two restaurants, but you are looking at the upper end of the price range.

Can reccomend the Sutton Staithe hotel, choice of restaurant or bar meals, good beer, reasonable price.

For me the White Horse has lost some of it's character over the last year, since the change of tenants, but still worth a visit.

Finally, I can't remember the name of it now, but from Ludham bridge back towards Potter there is another good pub on the Right hand side.

Thinking about this, as it's the Easter weekend, it's worth pointing out, that there is only room for two, maybe three boats at most at Dilham, and if boats are moored there, then turning is tricky for anything over 35ft. Stalham, can also be tricky for mooring, unless your on a hire boat, in which case you should be able to moor in the hireyards.

The pub just up the road from Ludham Bridge is The Dog.

If you do moor at Gay's Staithe, it's not too much of a walk to Neatishead (10 minutes), where as well as the White Horse you'll find the Old Saddlery restaurant.  Take a torch for the walk back and be aware that there's no footpath, you have to walk along the road.

Hi Perry
My choice if you are going to Dilham would be to carry on walking for 7 or 8 mins to Smallburgh and try the Crown. Good food nice old pub and a very freindly atmosphere.
