"Pan fried" - it still amuses me - roe back on. Delicious as ever.

Fell into The Hero after getting completely frozen and soaked on the 1.5 mile hike from the beach. It's true that the exterior is a little underwhelming but the interior is cool and elegant. The ubiquitous Wherry was fine and our food excellent. The young man who served us throughout was especially friendly and helpful. Suitably refreshed and thawed, we were able to make the last 6 miles to Brancaster.

Pretty busy here on a Sunday lunchtime. A curious looking pub both inside and out, reminding me more of a fairly utilitarian tearoom rather than an establishment selling beer.

Only real ale was Woodforde's Wherry which, to be honest, I wasn't overstruck with. It took a long time to clear ( not just in the Hero) and at 3.8% I found it a bit insipid.

Food was excellent - large portions and reasonably priced. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

One moan - we ordered a pot of tea for two and were charged 5 ! Only a standard sized pot and cups. This can only be described as excessive.

Lunch here on Bank Holiday Monday - not as busy as I'd anticipated. Two excellent pints of Wherry, but menu a little disappointing this time. No "pan fried" roe! (Baked Camembert okay though.)

The "pan fried" (how else can you fry something?) roe on toast was delicious last Tuesday lunctime. Nor was it desperately expensive. Good pint of Wherry, too.
