Find this deservedly-popular 18th century pub on the village green. While still very much a local with timber beams, bare wooden tables, an inglenook fireplace and real ales, their good food is the raison être for many. You can eat in the bar or in fair weather on tables in the south-facing garden.
The kitchen has built up an excellent network of local suppliers and offers a bistro-style menu that follows the seasons.
Starters such as 'Norfolk Asparagus & Ricotta Risotto with Shaved Parmesan'; 'Cromer Crab Cake'; 'Tempura Tiger Prawns with Chili, Ginger & Coriander Dipping Sauce' and 'Pigeon, Rabbit & Venison Terrine' set the style of an early summer menu.
There are light dishes such as 'Steak Bruschetta' and 'Homemade Smoked Norfolk Dapple Burger', but those with a larger appetite might be tempted by 'Yetmans Beer Battered Haddock with Hand-Cut Chips, Minted Mushy Peas & Homemade Tartare Sauce'; 'Slow Roast Briston Pork Belly with Champ & Cider Jus'; 'Goan Chicken Curry' and 'Local Traditionally-Hung Rib Eye Steak with Hand-Cut Chips, Roast Field Mushrooms & Béarnaise Sauce'.
Those who grave something sweet will find the likes of Sticky Toffee Pudding, Crumbles, Chocolate Pots and the like.
