Fantastic pub with not so much as a beer garden as a beer field. The 12 cask ales all priced at £3.60 a pint were Woodforde's Wherry and Nelsons Revenge, Norfolk Brewhouse's Pacific IPA (these 3 were dispensed via handpull), Colchester's Metropolis, Newby Wyke's Kingston Topaz, 8 Sail's Live & Kicking, Wild Craft's Wild Summer and Wild Bill Hiccup, Tombstone's Marshals. Raw's JR Best, Green Jack's Lurcher Stout and Billericay's Vanilla Mild (these 9 guests came straight from the cask). There were also 15 real ciders priced at £4 a pint (including Cockeyed's Copper Beech, Snails Bank's Rhubarb, Very Perry and Pig Squeal, Farmer Jims Medium and Dry, Tombstone's Snake Oil and Westons Old Rosie).

Great free house. Must have been at least 8 ales available when I called in while holidaying in the area last week, and as many ciders. Had a lovely pint of Tombstone; shame I was driving or I'd have tried some more. Interesting surroundings (Nelson memorabilia and various firearms on display), good service from cheerful staff and the grub was nice too. Made me wish I lived round here so I could visit this pub often.

Nice location, but apparently a Woodfordes tied house these days, with nothing else on when we called.

Visited on a wet September weekday afternoon with wife and our 5 month old. Very quiet, just a local chap with his dog and a few hardy walkers. Roaring log fire was going, and Bowie playing softly in the background. Made to feel very welcome by extremely pleasant barmaid, who let me try a few beers and chatted happily throughout. Settled on the Mardler's Mild then a pint of Norwich Castle, both great. These are the places that make British holidays worthwhile despite the foul weather!

I was there a week after Hodge1 and agree with their review, although I did eat here would score the pub highly for atmosphere, beer quality (mainly from Woodforde's) and friendliness of the staff. However the food was way below average and I'd choose to eat in Winterton and then resort here for a beer at sunset.
