Can anyone give an update as to food, moorings etc at this pub? I understand it changed hands approx 12 years ago so nearly all the comments on the NBF site are probably totally misleading.

Not been this year but for several years it's been run by a lovely lady named Sonia (I think) the food is best described as "good pub grub", reasonably priced and not bad. The moorings have recently been improved and it's a nice place to visit.

if it is to be it is up to me.

Haven't been since the lock-down began, but have been prior to that - by car, 'cos we're fairly local. I would describe it as a good, honest pub. Nothing fancy, but welcoming, and substantial food. You can eat their meals on your boat if you prefer. Good stern-on moorings, free to patrons. Very popular with locals, which must say something.

Been hit by another boat? Report the incident to the Marine Accident Investigation Branch’s dedicated accident reporting line on 023 8023 2527 which is monitored 24 hours a day.  Help to make the Broads safer.

A pub that always seems to get good reviews and was certainly good when I last visited a couple of years back. Electric and water available too. There are a couple of side-on moorings if you book them in advance.

I fully concur with the views expressed by one and all. I visited in August and September and enjoyed my food both times. The only moan came from one of my fellow diners who complained about the small size of his cod [with good reason]. There's always a friendly atmosphere at this pub and I always call here when I'm in the area....I wish there were more similar pubs on the broads.
Best wishes,Brian.

That has to be the first time I have ever heard of a complaint about small servings at the ferry, normally they are too big, last cod I had there was straight out of moby dick.
Recommended to phone and book table and mooring as it gets very busy.

Hi

Haven’t been since we sold Braveheart, but would wholeheartedly recommend it. Sunday roasts are to die for! As for small portions, even the starters are humongous, so wouldn’t advise having a starter and main meal unless you are really really hungry  LOL.

The moorings are now excellent, but phone and book before as they do get very busy especially a weekend, you can stay more than one day. We used to go Saturday and stay through to Monday as we liked the live music.

Kind regards, John(Captain
