We ask that dogs are kept on leads at all times, please can your pooches be kept off the sofas and beds. We also ask that while we are most defiantly dog friendly, please be respectful of other diners and pooches should be well behaved.

We have a black Labrador Doris who you might see roaming around the pub, most of our team are also dog owners so please do ask them for their favourite walk with their pooch.

We have a Doris dog board , which have pictures of dogs that come into the pub , please ask a member of staff if you would like a picture taken so you can be added to the board ! When you bring your four legged friend to our pub we also offer a dog menu, filled with treats.

If you are staying with us four of our rooms are dog friendly and we offer a bed, bowl and complimentary biscuit on arrival.

As per all listings on Dog Friendly Norfolk, we accept well behaved dogs.

    Just had the most delicious roast here. Pink beef, giant Yorkshire pudding, the best gravy and some interesting (in a really good way) veg. Big portions but high quality. The desserts were amazing too. We had sticky toffee pudding with banana ice cream and peanut brittle - such a good combination. Perfect food and perfect service. If we lived closer we would be here every Sunday. It was very busy so glad we had booked. Very impressed how fast the service was though. Thank you Dabbling Duck!

    I have just enjoyed the best pub lunch that I can remember! Food ranged from pub classics to serious restaurant food - our table enjoyed some of each. Beer and service were perfect. It's a long drive from where we live, but really well worth it.

    We travelled from Lincolnshire to meet family from Suffolk - it was a great mid point. Situated in a very pretty village, a warm welcome awaited us. Attentive, courteous staff, comfortable spacious restaurant and bar, a great beer selection and friendly locals set the scene. The lunch menu was the best I've seen in ages something to suit everyone, beautifully served and executed. My starter was golden beetroot with a goats cheese mousse, chicory leaves and a gremolata dressing - it was delicious, followed by a duo of venison with root vegetables, stunning in taste and beautifully presented. We are planning our next trip!!

    Fantastic proper pub with a gastro twist. Real warm pub with fires and cheerful staff. Once you've had a pint go and eat in the restaurant! The food is rubbing shoulders with a Michelin star but at average high street prices. Real gem of a place.

    Simply a great place for a delicious hearty meal be it a a fish and chips or the veggie option. Pair your meal with a local lager and maybe even enjoy playing a cards game in the library in the back. Must have the chunky chips. I’d even venture to have some dessert. When in Massingham 🤷🏻‍♂️
