Ah, thanks to the info given about the new owning company - a huge pub co property business, I did a little teeny bit of research. Apparently the Stonegate group posted a £765m loss for 2020, so maybe the mooring fees are to go a little way towards "shoring up" that rather large hole?

They have a number of establishments in Norwich of which the Lamb Inn is one - its ok by my reckoning but although I do use it, not spectacular!

Other local establishments shown on their website!

Well done Karen, focusing on the negatives again.

"So in the event you did visit and the moorings were free, how would you feel about knowing that a part of your bill was going towards the maintenance of moorings that you do not use?"

Moorings are just another facility. If I go to any pub, I never watch their television, use their dart board, or any other distraction they may have on offer. But part of my bill goes towards providing and maintaining them. I can walk to my local pub, but don't give the maintenance of their car park, which I have never used, a single thought.

I have been to a very nice pub which provides free mooring. I've always travelled there by car, though. The prices of the meals are comparable to similar establishments, so I don't have the feeling that I am paying any more for my meal. Certainly not another £15.

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.

Hi all. Lying on the beach here in Thailand this thread is a great read.  Back to the overall point. I’ve been a private boater for 6 years now and have only managed to more in horning once, there’s not enough public mooring, why I don’t know. Anyway, for me if I can pre book a mooring in horning occasionally, whether I eat there or not, it worth paying. By the way a long tail boat, on the broads would be a site. Back to the sunset Chang

Couldn't the same be said about the car park?

Most QWuay Heading contractors quote 10 years as Marshy suggests, but look around the broads and you will see Quay headings including B.A. 24 hour moorings that have lasted much longer than that. As I said the £20k was over the top and would probably cover the cost of Plastic or steel but even at 10 years life the cost would only be £110 per month, 11 boats @ £10 or 7.33 boats @ £15, as I say, shear greed as the costs are already built into the cost of the drink and food they sell or am I wrong and they have reduced prices to take account of the new income stream/

TT yes there are q headings that have possibly been there for a good time but the were installed before the preservatives that work were banned.
By the way I have got this info of an old boy (local) who has spent years building quay headings... he doesn't bother unless it's a regular as he can't even guarantee 10 years he still does regular building work.
20yrs these day's your dreaming...

Moorings are a way of attracting passing trade for extra profit Bouchant Arms it a good example when they maintained the river bank they had lots of passing trade me included when they stopped cutting the grass so you could see where to put your footing nobody bothered to stop, the Ferry at Surlingham renovated there moorings now they are often full. A pub near us built a children's play area with a fence all round the garden result weekends where rammed with family mum's and Dad's could have a relaxing drink knowing that children couldn't leave the garden without passing through a gate that was in front of all the seats result more profit.
