Hello everyone

Whilst browsing through all the pubs you have mentioned on this site I couldn't help noticing that nobody had mentioned the Berney Arms just off the Breydon Waters.

We used to make that one of our overnight stops when we were on the broads and always found it to be friendly and welcoming.

I think the landlord was called Robert and I remember how he used to give the kids money to spend on the machines in the pub.

It used to be a lovely place to spend an evening.  

Is it still there?

Is it still a nice place or is it now not a place to visit?

I remember that the landlord was a bit of a joker, the ceiling was covered with fishing nets and he had a wire behind the bar and when he lifted it a great big fake spider would come down from the ceiling and frighten the life out of whoever happened to be sitting below it.

The food wasn't bad either.

Hello PaulaDawn,

We called at the Bernie last year and it hadn't changed from a couple of years ago, except the dust was a bit deeper. The landord's a quiet sort of chap but with a friendly nature. He appears to have a dog, as he seems to have a good supply of dog biscuits which he gives freely to visiting dogs.

The food was wholesome and freshly cooked, as we were the only people there on a very cold, miserable day. Wouldn't say it was a must visit place in Winter, but in summer it could be OK.

Hi Paula.

Visited the Berney Arms last Summer & the year before. It was surprisingly quiet relative to the number of boats moored. Haven't eaten there, but really enjoyed a drink outside staring at the view!

Robert sold out and moved on a few years back (he moved to Reedham).  Since then, it has been part of the chain which includes Beauchamp Arms and Surlingham Ferry ('nuff said) but may now be privately operated.

Robert had a reputation for being fierce - but was actually friendly and helpful once you got to know him. I remember him launching his motorboat and retrieving one of our fenders for us, when it fell off.
