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.

well for me its

The Woods End Brammerton, great sunday carvery, good pub meals and real ales

The Fur and Feathers, good food and great to have such a choice of real ales

Waveney River Centre, good for keeping the kids entertained,swim pool ect, yet to try the carvery, but good reports on here, very reasonable prices on house spirit doubles, and that lovely old elm bar and stools, a woodlovers dream!

we used to like the Bell Inn at St Olaves, and must try again later this year, but it did go down badly under the previous landlord.

Yet to try The Ship mentioned above, but may be on the cards for a couple of weeks time when we will be down landlubbin/dayboating   Smile  Cheers

Anyone Know any good north norfolk pubs along the coast from sandringham to cromer please?

Great thread this

Its good to see how folk have different takes on the same places.

I see a few have raved about the Fur and Feather and as a confirmed Woodforde's nut I should join your ranks but I just cant take to the place at all.

For a great Woodforde's pub try the Swan at Ingham about 5 mins out of Stalham (in a car/taxi) towards Sea Palling.

Favorate pub the Keys at Dilham even if he doesnt keep Woodforde's (Adnams and Green King normally)

You mean the other Starboard then...

A difficult question to answer I think...

For me, it really depends on the time of year....

Summertime outside the Ferry with a couple of drinks....well, a good number of us seem to meet there....it's great as James says for watching the river and the comings and goings!

Sutton Staithe....agree with you too Craig, a favourite in the winter as it is so quiet...roaring fire, the odd dog hogging all the heat, beer & food ok, and of course, we can actually get there easily enough on a winters evening from our mooring. It feels like our 'local'. Crunching across the grass after being roasted by the fire all evening back to a freezing boat....heaven!!!

Then of course there is Neatishead......
