Had a great meal at the Ferry at Horning last night (Thursday), good friendly service, food was excellent and cooked exactly as asked for (mixed grill and a sirloin) The ale was pretty palatable as well (Green King IPA)

There were a couple of dodgy looking characters loitering at the next table though, discussing what sounded like some dodgy deal going down on June 24th at Ranworth involving a load of boats, one had a t-shirt on with some "forum" logo on it!  Wink  The one who called himself "Steve Schatz" looked like he was smuggling a boat-load of soft toys !! Smile

Not sure on this one but I remember them having a carvery back in the summer of 2004. I've wondered since if they only have the carvery available during the busier part of the season..I'll try and askthe question next time I'm up Smile

Hi all
The Ferry has recently been taken over by the same
chain as the Malsters,so far the menu looks ok but i did not see a carvery,may be wrong.
Lenny for a really good old fashioned Sunday roast type carvery,try the Ship at South Walsham.
Saying that though the meals in the Ferry are pretty good INMHO.
The staff are nice, good fun to Wink

Hi there..the other one in Horning worth a try is The New Inn. I know a fair few who have used the pub and they say it's great..don't know if they have a carvery though. Dave of Hemel...your avatar ..Bounty 34 sedan? We hired one of Ferry's Bounty fleet back in 88 and when the missus saw it she nearly had a fit..you'd have thought I'd hired the QE2. We had hired an Aquabell 28 the previous year and the Bounty is much bigger.

Lenny,
Last time I was up I asked the Ferry staff about the carvery. They told me it's every day until Ocotober..hope this helps.

Hi Jamesey...

Glad your experience of the New Inn was better than our recent one where some good friends of ours were very poorly treated indeed.

Some of the worst 'nuke and puke' garbage this side of The Bridge at Acle and a "chef" who appears to be totally unable and unwilling to cook steak to customers' requirements...and couldn't care less anyway. Three of four times the steak was sent back and eventually a barely-edible steak was produced albeit without the pepper sauce which had been ordered and paid for! No apology whatsoever from the lower pond life running the place.

Any chef or, in this case, Griddle Monkey who can't or won't address the customers' requirements is in the wrong job IMHO. A request to speak to the "chef" was met with an abrupt "she is far too busy to speak to you" a sort of "you're only a customer...eat the food or sod off" approach. Very charming...NOT!

Couple that with (some) staff with customer service skills gleaned directly from the Gordon Ramsay school of charm the whole visit was a debacle and we will NEVER venture there again whilst the current low life management and (some) staff are in residence.

Avoid the New Inn like the plague would be my advice.

No offence meant, Jamesey...just felt I needed to recount the awful part evening we endured at this place.

I'm sure there are many satisfied customers out there but we aren't in that group of people unfortunately.



The Ferry at Horning may be a bit 'plastic fantastic' as a pub but the service has always been better there and the food, whilst not adventurous, is wholesome and plentiful.

Just my two cents.

John
