Hi Mate.
Well.
At the Moment my top Pub is the Ship at Sth Walsham.
Followed by the Fur and Feathers ,
im sorry to say i really dont like most of the pubs at the River Side cos they are owned by large chains.
But a lot of the village pubs are SpoT On, cos they are owned in house.
But saying that the
New inn at Horning is INHOP very good  free riverside mooring as well.
Next please.

Well for me I would look for at least one well kept real ale (no John Smiths Smooth ice cream soda please) a pleasant atmosphere, barstaff and or landlord who will give you a smile occasionally and who do give some recognition that you are a customer. The Woodfordes shouldn't run out half way through the evening, the landlord shouldn't kick you into the street on the dot at 11 and rant and rave. Good quality live music would be a bonus for me, as good quality home cooked (not re-heated carvery) grub. few decent malt whiskys would be nice.

Not much to ask?  tounge-in-cheek

I reckon the Ship at South Walsham is as close as you would get. White horse at Upton, would have said the Lion at West Somerton but beleive it has changed hands recently. (ooops!! Fur and Feather!! Heaven. losing me touch......

My 2p

Cheers

Howard

I think the best pub is The Kings Arms in Ludham, Great food in the bar and the restaurant. Friendy staff and always very clean.

Really like the ferry inn at horning has a great food I think it's great to sit outside next to the river watching anything also like it inside think it's a great family pub. Other pub I like is one down oulton broad  can't remember the name but I know that the bar roof is covered in football shirts and behind the bar they have framed shirts saying waveny gunners in the restraunt side it's covered in loads of old photo's of oulton and had good food when I was there 4 years ago.

My top five:

1. White Horse, Chedgrave. It's in Chedgrave, it has Tim Taylor Landlord and does great, proper food. Friendly welcome, good looking, real pub.
2. King's Head, Loddon. It's in Loddon, it has excellent real ales and does good food. Again, a very friendly place. Lovely people.
3. Ferry Inn, Stokesby. Great desserts, according to my crew. Great steaks....they actually cook them the way you want them cooked. A rarity. Excellent beer and they had a draught cider i've never heard of and have now forgotten the name of!
4. Rising Sun, Coltishall. Has Deuchars IPA on draught. Great setting. Large portions of food....nothing special, unlike last September, but ok. But don't ask the staff anything challenging like "What time do you start serving?"
5. Maltsters, Ranworth. Great setting, ok beer if you're lucky (hit and miss when we last visited). Pub grub, with some 'different' and lovely starters. Salmon fish cakes and mussels were excellent.

NB. haven't been to the Ferry at Reedham for a year, so can't include it!

Worst four (probably is a fifth, but won't wrack me brain to think of it now).

Worst - Broadhaven Tavern, Potter Heigham. In actual fact one of the worst, most depressing pubs i've ever been in, and that takes some doing as i've been in thousands.....South London, Newcastle, Glasgow's odious (ie Celtic) parts! Dirty, rude, ignorant teenage 'staff', part de-thawed food. Avoid.
Near to worst - Stracey Arms or whatever it's called. No proper beer, large portions of expensive American rubbish masquerading as food.
Very poor - King's Head, Wroxham. Brewers Fayre. Surly and objectionable staff. Cardboard food.
Poor - Hermitage, Acle. Massively over-priced food, beer was uniformily poor (the token real beer was off. Not off as in they'd run out, but off as in putrid.

Basically, if you like great real beer, follow the advice of the locals and get away from the rivers a bit. It's not always brilliant even when it's available at the riverside boozers. If you like keg, mass produced stuff (John Smiths, lager) you'll be ok....it's hard to ruin rubbish.
