I thought it still was called The Red House!

I went in there a few months back when I'd only had my boat for a short time.  A friend, who is very good with electrics, was staying with me and I was taking him on a tour of the southern broads whilst he fixed all my electrical problems.  The Reedcutter was one of the places we stopped.

My biggest problem was the quay heading.  It was rough concrete.  In fact the landlord and a friend of his were laying a huge old piece of rope along the top of it to solve the problem.  Trouble was, because they were working on the quay heading they asked me to moor where they weren't working (and was still just concrete) - and I watched in horror as a piece of my boat splintered off on connection with that quay heading.  Grrr!

Anyway, apart from that, which was solved by liberal removal of the port side fenders to re-inforce the starboard side, particularly at the starboard stern corner where the fixed fender was too high to protect against the low quay (hence the damage) it was quite a pleasant visit.

The landlord was friendly and helpful, as were the bar staff, and other aspects of the pub also met with approval - it was neat, clean and tidy and beer tasted good.  But it was a hot day and we decided to sit outside on the riverbank with our pints.  It has to be said that the sugar mill does not make for the most picturesque, or quiet, backdrop.

The Reedcutters is now owned by a family concern from Reedham and is an excellent place to stop both for a beer or a meal.

It has been on the up for a while since it was taken over to provide an outlet for Humpty Dumpty beer again from Reedham.


Having visited it only a slack handfull of times when it was the Red House I must say the new owners would have had to go some to make it any worse.

HD is still available there and I would recommend any Real Ale types to give it a try.

It is a shame about the mooring being concrete but I must say I have not had any damage done to my boats there( I do always carry one or two extra fenders ) and it looks from Simons info that they are trying to improve them.

The landlord was fully aware of the problem - indeed he informed me that he had become aware that some hire yards (no names mentioned) were asking their customers not to stop at his moorings.  He was using a huge old piece of rope, the kind of thing used to moor the QE2 and fastening it the quay heading all the way along.

We went passed yesterday and again today.  It looks like a small part of the rope has come away at one end (and all the fishermen had crowded into that section) but the rest of the quay heading looks well covered and that rope is probably one of the kindest quay headings I've seen anywhere.

Simon,

I must say that the rope does sound like a good idea if it can be secured well.

Annother place to be aware of that has similar quay heading is the Ship at Reedham.

That's it.

It is nice to sit on that grass bank on a hot summer's day and sip a cold beer - but it has to be said the view is perhaps not the finest that broadland has to offer!

Couldn't agree more. I guess it's because it's a significant landmark. Similarly the Stracey Arms will always be the Stracey Arms (I don't even know what it's called these days). The one difference is the Red House sounds worth visiting.

Robin, you don't want to know. The Stracey Arms is now the Pontiac Roadhouse - The big American Experince  Frown

Not a place for a quality pint!!!
