Take a light lunch or afternoon tea in one of our rural cafes…

Amongst its dozens of small country and coastal villages, you will easily find a fantastic choice of classic and well-established pubs, bars, and inns waiting to warmly welcome you to West Norfolk.

Many pubs in the area organise special evening events of music and entertainment, so make sure you catch a night of fun and dancing to some of the region’s best local talent.

Whatever your preference, you can find a pub to match your tastes. From historic village pubs to modern bars in our towns; from stylish hotel lounges to quirky coastal pubs where you can learn all about smuggling, beer production, and local history whilst drinking unusual beers such as Nelson’s Blood, you are sure to find the perfect place to relax and unwind in.

The combination of great local food, a warm welcome, and some of the best ales in the country is particularly appealing, and many establishments have their own accommodation too.

From a pint of local shrimps and a hunk of bread to mussels à la mode, the pubs of West Norfolk offer meals and prices to suit everyone. Most pubs welcome the whole family too – with many having beer gardens, family rooms and children’s menus.

Why not eat out at one of our superb restaurants. Whether situated against the backdrop of a breathtaking coastline, unspoilt countryside, or in one of our towns, our diverse range of restaurants offers a truly wonderful experience in and around West Norfolk, where the famously slower pace of life makes for a charmingly relaxed atmosphere within which to wine and dine.

So, from organic vegetables, a veritable smorgasbord of seafood (oysters from the saltmarsh creeks of Thornham, near Hunstanton, a particular highlight) and cheeses (including sheep’s cheese), to our famous samphire “the asparagus of the sea”, venison and wild game, the menus of our pubs, restaurants, and cafes (Eat Out Norfolk provides a good list of businesses) offer high quality food of outstanding taste and variety.
