EATING AND DRINKING

LOCAL RECOMMENDATIONS

The Banningham Crown, Banningham (2 minutes’ walk) offers fine ales and good quality food. If you are very lucky, your stay will coincide with one of their Jazz events or Morris Dancers who perform in the road outside! If you pre-book for a meal, and tell them where you are staying, you should be eligible for a 5% discount on food, eligible between April and September.

Aylsham (2 miles) and North Walsham (5 miles) offer a good selection of pubs, restaurants and take aways.

Gate of India, Aylsham (2.8 miles, 6 minutes’ drive). If you can’t survive your stay without a curry, this is the restaurant for you. It has a very good reputation locally and provides a take away service, but no delivery.

The Buckinghamshire Arms (3.5 miles, 9 minutes’ drive), is a very family friendly pub with a great reputation, situated at the gates of Blickling Hall.

The Saracen’s Head, Wolterton (4 miles, 9 minutes’ drive). Newly revamped, this is a super place to eat and has a very good reputation. Mention that you are staying at the Coach House and you may get special treatment! Well worth a try.

Roughton Fish Shop (5.3 miles, 10 minutes’ drive). When you’re by the seaside, you have to have fish and chips! Eat in or take away although we always think they taste better out of paper than on plate!

The Gunton Arms, Thorpe Market is 9/50 in The Times’ 50 Best Pubs (5.6 miles, 10 minutes’ drive). A traditional pub in the historic deer park of Gunton Hall. No expense has been spared on the interiors which boast works by Damien Hirst amongst others. Stuart Tattersall is the ex head chef at the Mark Hix restaurant in London and has been receiving rave reviews. However, the food is still sensibly priced and it’s an experience not to be missed.

The Walpole Arms, Itteringham (5.5 miles, 14 minutes’ drive).

OTHER RECOMMENDATIONS

The Wiveton Bell, Wiveton (18 miles).

You need to book beforehand because it is always full and there is only one sitting each evening. The meal is set menu and varies depending upon what good seasonal produce is available that day. If you are a vegetarian or a lover of the sea food, you can easily be catered for. The food is fabulous.
