Until Saturday, this had been one of those pubs on my "to visit" list ..... the trouble being that we just automatically head to the Locks whenever we visit Geldeston!

We had to go to Beccles by car on Saturday and, as you do, decided to call in at The Locks for a quick pint on the way home. After driving all the way down the track we found that the car park was absolutely full (I think they had a function on) so we had to turn round and drive back out again.  Frown
Hey ho .... we decided to go and see whether the Wherry was open instead, and it was! The landlady was very friendly and welcoming and we had a superbly kept pint of Adnams. We didn't eat but the evening specials board had some very interesting options on it, including two vegetarian dishes which sounded very tempting indeed! We spoke to the landlady who informed us that ALL their food is homecooked on the premises. The proces seemed very reasonable indeed and we will definately call back soon for a meal.

A sample menu can be found on their website, although the specials board did contain some more adventurous (if that's the right term) sounding dishes.

Has anyone eaten there recently?

Yes, it is excellent, often pop in for a meal during the day if I'm fishing up that way. Evening wise my wife and I generally pop in there during the winter, always been first class. Just lacks the quirkiness of The Locks.

Jenny Morgan,
A vane, a boat, but not a bird.

The Broads is NOT a National Park.

We too dropped in for a pint to see what it was like earlier this year, and were impressed enough to revisit for a meal while out on the boat last month (see "Travels on Nerita" in Holiday tales).  The meal was absolutely excellent, home cooked by someone far better than the average pub cook, and very well presented.  My local "Red Poll" Sirloin was the best steak I have had for many years.

Unreservedly recomended!

I am reading all these southern pub recommendations in view of south rivers adventure starting on the 20th.

Where can you moor for the Wherry - its so long since I have been to Geldeston I have no idea how easy it is to get close to it by water?

We were actually moored up by the Locks - it's a 15 minute walk at most, and mean't we could stop at the Locks Inn for a nightcap on the way back to the boat.

Yes there are 24 hour moorings by the old railway bridge just before you turn in to Rowan Craft.
Then it's a 5 minute walk through the boatyard to the pub.

Picture of the casual moorings looking downstream from the old railway bridge.
We always enjoy visiting the Wherry when we're down south - in fact we've been there more than the Locks.
