This stunning pub is situated on the Village Green and close to the unspoilt salt marshes of the North Norfolk coastal landscape which is a listed site of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Expect a chic interior, with earthy Farrow & Ball hues, stripped beams, chunky tables and oak-planked floors. Further character is provided by the bold, contemporary oil paintings by local artists (for sale) that line the walls of the cosy bar and the airy conservatory dining room.
The pub is open all afternoon for drinks both summer and winter and they have four Locally Selected Guest Beer's which are sold alongside premium draught lager and a carefully selected wine list.
A real fire roars in the inglenook all winter long whilst drinks afresco can be enjoyed in summer in the sunny south facing garden overlooking the village green.
Innovative seasonal menus make sound use of local fish, meat and game, such as Cley Smokehouse haddock, Blakeney crabs, Morston mussels (all nearby villages), salt marsh grazed beef, and game from local estates. Lunch and dinner menus are similar, with the addition of lighter dishes at lunch, and evening specials at dinner.
Three of the six bedrooms are situated above the pub, Library, White and Panelled Rooms (two with private balconies), whilst the Garden, Starlight and Gallery Rooms occupy adjacent cottages, all with alfresco seating. (The Garden Room has it’s own private terrace).
Expect contemporary styling and a French shabby-chic feel, with ornate mirrors, painted furniture and antique French beds with Egyptian cotton, goose down duvets and pillows, and cosy quilts. Two have Victorian claw-foot baths, others are fully tiled wet rooms with under floor heating, rain showers, quality fittings, bathrobes, and posh Ren toiletries.
Fresh bread and warm croissants from Blakeney Deli are delivered daily between 8.30am – 9am and placed in the ‘Tuck Box’ outside the door (remember to leave it out!) and each room has a toaster, fresh coffee, and a fridge containing butter, milk, orange juice and jams.
So, enjoy breakfast at you leisure on your private terrace or balcony (except Panelled Room). During the summer months, if you prefer to head out for cooked breakfast at Blakeney Quay or at the Wiveton Farm Café, £7 will be taken off your room bill.
Expect a huge, smiley welcome and friendly and efficient service from Sandy and her excellent managers.
