Carpenters Arms Wighton

55-57 High Street, Wighton, Wells-next-the-Sea (Nr.), Norfolk, NR23 1PF
What looks like a traditional village pub hides an unusual multi-coloured interior and interesting modern paintings.

Eat in the bar, dedicated dining area or – in fine weather – their pleasant garden.

The kitchen, under the direction of Gareth Williams, offers a seasonal menu of mainly locally-produced food, and this is both of a high standard and modestly-priced for the standard on offer. Nearly everything is produced in-house.

A Summer menu listed 'Sweet Potato, Rosemary & Butternut Squash Soup'; 'Pan-Fried Pigeon Breast & Bacon Salad' and 'Deep-Fried Whitebait with Lemon Mayonnaise' among the starters.

'Adnams Beer-Battered Haddock Fillet with Mushy Peas & Chips'; 'Ham, Double Egg & Hand-Cut Chips'; Braised Neck of Lamb with New Potatoes & Fresh Vegetables'; 'Pan-Fried Duck Breast with Orange Mash, Chestnut and Raspberry Sauce' plus various steaks from the grill.

Traditional puds might include 'Warm Treacle Tart with Vanilla Seed Ice Cream & Raspberry Coulis'; 'Spotted Dick with Crème Anglaise' and 'Norfolk Syllabub'.

Their Sunday lunches, including traditional roasts, are particularly popular.
