Hi,
And firstly thank you for allowing us into your little group here, and what a splendid group too.  So nice to see hirers and owners together side by side in harmony.

Ok, down to business.
We think the Ferry Inn at Stokesby is well worth a mention.  We ended up mooring there whilst on the Broads as we had not been able to get at Acle.  Had a splendid meal, there were 6 of us 3 kids 1 Teenager and 2 adults.  The Wife and I tried their Braised Lamb Shank, absolutely delicious, good kids menu too.  Only downside is that moorings are somewhat limited tho if its late enough you can double moor.

Welcome to the nuthouse, BB...  Cheers

Glad you enjoyed your stay at Stokesby. Must say, the meals we saw going to customers when we were there Friday last looked very good. I know the place went through a bit of a bad patch not long ago but it looks like it's back up there with the best. Good thing really as it's a great stopoff point to and from the Breydon crossing.

Hi BoatinBarmy

Totally agree with you about Stokesby Ferry Inn. Good homecooked menu at extremely good prices. Ale was also well kept (though not exceptional it was good). At least four vegetarian choices, I had Mushroom, Cranberry & Brie Wellington (£6.99 & absolutely delicious) while Kev had Wild Mushroom Lasagne ( same price, same quality). By far the best vegetarian food we've found on the Broads so far & highly recommended!  Cheers

Have used the Ferry Inn at Stokesby on most visits to the broads in the last 5 years. Can only echo what others have said, good food, good ale, friendly and efficient staff. Do a good lunch as well as dinner.

Sorry to disagree folks but we moored the night at the Ferry this week and the food was at best described as 'edible'. The service was non existent (dippy teenage girls) who proceeded to screw up our bill so we ended up paying grossly over the top for a not enjoyable meal.

We refer to them as "midriffs"

Dippy teenage girls, don't like doing the job "cos it's b-o-r-i-n-g", rather be somewhere else, couldn't care less, all too common unfortunatley. there's an old adage that says 'pay peanuts you get monkeys' could be something in it  Indifferent

That's not a reflection on all teenage girls (quickly reaching for tin hat). Must say I've always found the Ferry OK, could have been the landlord/landlady's night off possibly?
