At the risk of inviting the wrath of Paladine, the fact (joke) is that this is probably the most popular eating place on the Broads. My family have had several meals in TFI, we all still live and have suffered no ill effects, more than I can say sbout some of the 5 star establishments we have suffered.
Better open than shut!

I agreed Ken , many on here choose to put the oar in as it were n have never even been or even eaten there , 90% of this is based on a star rating , OK so go and wat at a 5 star place n then if u get food poisoning then who ate you going to blame , star rating doesn't just take in food there are many aspects to it n trust me you can get food poisoning from somewhere that's got 5 stars  .
Broardland business are being crucified here n as far as I can see on not that much personal knowledge for instance anyone who's a member here who as actually had food poisoning fro this establishment then say so now other than that please keep quiet , speculation is not  fact .

How does full pub, full car park, full moorings, tables full of people enjoying a meal, queue at the food and drink counter suit you?

All a fairly rare sight in pubs these days.

Ah, thank you. So it is an opinion, based on observation.

I therefore would like to declare the Kings Head at Coltishall as the most popular eating place on The Broads, based on my own visits and observations on numbers.

If we are talking actual river frontage pubs, then as we pass both the Ferry and the New Inn within a few minutes , and at regular times between March and December, then my observations would be that the New Inn beats the Ferry. However, none of this is an exact science really.... tad random maybe?   Wink

Exactly Ken , why is it full ? And yet one person on 2 threads wants to damage trade at 2 totally different business's both of which are eating establishments that others are happy with , OK the bouncy castle incident was wrong and yes I have children , but to crucife somewhere for improving thing is absolutely outrageous , full car parks etc speak louder  than any comment's on here .

Karen NY I politely request that you venture further a field before you announce your vote for the best eating house there are plenty who can match any where on the northern rivers all you have to do is get past Yarmouth .

Your quite right Karen I don't but I'm just commenting on information gains from your post which seam to centre around the northern rivers hence my comment's that there are just as good eating establishments on the southern rivers that quite a few people here seam to forget .
Incidentally the kings head and rising sun share a carpark and the Mooring's above the BA ones I'm sure are attached to the rising sun so a view from the river is inconclusive , you would have to visit both pubs to know which is the busy one and I know that the rising sun is a very busy place .

Based on my observations I would say The Bridge Inn or The Maltsters both score very heavily for footfall on both the food and drink front.

With regards to The Ferry, whilst long overdue improvements have been made, it is most definitely too little too late. After years of consistently low scores it has taken court action to get him to make improvements, but lets also not forget that it is not just the previously low hygiene rating that does this landlord no favours.

1. Many planning infringements, some of which I believe are still ongoing and enforcement action being taken.

2. Multiple health and safety issues with the play area which again were severe enough for court action.

3. The abuse of the stern on mooring trial.

4. Taking out the lease on The Woodbastwick moorings to close them, forcing more people to moor his side and to try and get his own way on the stern mooring
issue.

5. Complaints from berth holders at the nearby marina of late night parties with loud music as the staff relax after closing hours.

This landlord cares very little for the customers other than the contents of their wallets and even less for the locals, few, if any, he employs, unless Horning has moved from the Norfolk dialect to an East European one.



Just because The BA make a request, don't automatically assume they have the powers to make such requests!! Keeping a careful eye on an Authority which is making it's own rules.
