    Food was faultless, amazing range of options, amazing Gluten Free options. The decor and atmosphere of the pub is great, however unfortunately the service we received was slow and a bit chaotic. The food price is reflective of the quality however the experience was dampened by the service. And unfortunately we were overcharged by £60 on top of a £20 tip, which we only noticed after leaving. It would be good to return and feel like the staff were well trained and had a good knowledge of the menu and service.

    Stayed for 1 night but wished we could have stayed longer! Room was amazing with everything you need, food was delicious and our very generous continental breakfast was lovely and fresh (we opted for continental as we couldn't face the cooked breakfast available due to still feeling stuffed from our meal the night before) We spent some time talking with the owner who was very friendly, with nothing seeming too much trouble for her! we will definitely be back in the future.

    Probably the best pub in Norfolk. Does absolutely everything. Actual pub with great atmosphere and perfect place for a few drinks and to hang out with the locals but then a superb restaurant as well. The food is perfectly pitched, interesting and varied menu but then when it arrives you realise it’s a real chef in the kitchen and the food would not look out of place in 5 star city restaurant. In the summer there’s a huge space out the back perfect for long afternoons or families with kids. The rooms are 5 star as well. A true destination pub that it’s impossible to be too positive about.

    Enjoyed a wonderful 2-night stay. Perfect pooch-friendly base from which to explore the beautiful county of Norfolk. Delicious food, delightful accommodation and well-maintained grounds to enjoy. Will be heading back for sure! 💜

    Delicious food, stunning decor and a beautiful location ensure that this is one of the best pubs that we have ever eaten at. The menu was extensive, the portions were substantial and each course was beautifully presented. We will definitely be visiting The Brisley Bell whenever we visit North Norfolk in the future.
