Excellent and prompt service despite being busy at lunchtimes (people come out of the city).  Probably the nicest pub food I've had on the southern rivers.

If you can't get under the rail bridges it's only a short walk from Commissioner's Cut, and the pathway is all clear now.

I have to agree, everytime I have been there the food and real ale have been good. I prefer to moor at Norwich during the day and then moor overnight at Thorpe, a) for the Rushcutters and b) because the mooring is quieter overnight than Norwich

Folks... I've been trying to find out more about this place, but have failed. I should have started here.

Do they have a nice garden, overlooking the river?
Does anyone have any pictures!?

Thanks... PL.

Gosh! That's fantastic!
I'm looking for a pub that's between the A11 and a place near Acle (grin) that is
a) easy to get to by car, on the way to an adventure
b) is a welcoming, enjoyable place that sets expectations of memorable adventures to come
c) is not the Bridge Inn
(ah - c rules out b)
Thanks John.
PL.

The Rushcutters is one of the places I always stop, very good food and real ale, although it can get busy at times. If mooring in Thorpe, I tend to moor further up on the green, rather than outside the pub as the trains crossing the bridge can get noisey.

There is also another place to moor on the main river with a walk to Thorpe.

I have always moored in Thorpe without trouble, however one or two people on here have mentioned problems with people interfering with the mooring ropes the same as Norwich. I was speaking to the harbourmaster at Oulton Broad last Saturday and he confirmed it is also a problem at Thorpe as well as Norwich.

You could always divert slightly off the A47 and go to the Maltsters at Ranworth.  Not far and as pleasant by car as by boat!   On the way back to Acle you then take a walk round Fairhaven Gardens at South Walsham.   Great for kids there as well.

I like to go to the Fairhaven Gardens in late May when the Primroses are out they also operate boat trips round the broad and have quite a reasonable Cafe.
