    Over priced basic Sunday Roast all you can eat buffet style . On arrival we found the service to be disorganised , unable to find my online booking. Waited for service at our table , eventually went to the bar for drinks ourselves. Appear to be pushing towards using the QR code to order , what is that all about ? You line up to get your own plate of food , both main course and dessert , no service happening here.

    Been many times before and rated high, but this time the rice bowls were not very moist and the chips cold, The ice cream cart was very poor only enough for 0ne (£20) had before and was £17 and enough for Three Very disappointing

    Had a lovely lunch on Saturday to celebrate our wedding anniversary! Such a lovely place with yummy food and an amazing play area for the kids. The restaurant even gave us a code for 10% off the food which was good. The staff were very friendly and would come over and check everything was ok with our meal. I would definitely recommend!

    Welcomed in with a smile and shown to our table. We had a push chair with us and had plenty of room. The staff were all very kind and the food was delicious. Pricey for breakfast even with the Norfolk Passport but they do serve the most delicious pancakes I think I’ve ever eaten. The staff seemed to send all the walk in’s away so it’s obviously very important to book.

    We were recommended to come for the breakfast and we traveled a fair way based on the recommendation. We were not disappointed, A lovely location and spacious venue. A great selection of “eat as much as you want” buffet breakfast with good quality bacon, sausages etc. would return again without hesitation if in the area and the staff were all lovely too.

    Really enjoy coming here but a few things let this visit down. Namely, I booked a table for 4.45pm. It took quite some time from sitting down to getting out drinks. It was not busy and there were staff pottering about. I think our drinks could have been quicker. We then waited til almost 5.15pm for our slot at the buffet. If I wanted to eat at 5.15pm I would have booked a table for 5.15pm. I think 30 minutes was excessive. There was no ice cream available and the desserts were lacking compared to previous visits. Finally when paying we were not shown our bill, only told the price. I do not like this and next time I will insist on seeing the bill first. One should always be able to check all is correct before making payment. Otherwise the roast was good with lots of choice and we enjoyed it - once we finally got it.

    We came for the pie feast and the whole thing from start to finish was confusing we had no idea what we were meant to be doing as we had 3 different servers all saying different things. We waited for a good 20 minutes before we were even able to go and pick our food. i’m vegetarian and had to ask multiple people about what foods were veggie to find there was only one veggie pie option anyway- the chef was nice and explained exactly what i could and couldnt eat which i appreciated however when going to choose my foods i noticed there were no separate tongs for anything and so in actual fact none of it was suitable for vegetarians as i watched the person before us use the same tongs for the sausages and then the potatoes so i couldn’t eat barely any of it. The dessert was decent so only come here for sweet deffo not the carvery, it was bland and plain also, especially for the price we paid. deffo won’t be returning for this and honestly was eager to leave for most of the duration.

    We had a lovely birthday celebration meal and were made aware that we can provide our own birthday cake and decorations for the table, if we wish next time as we were unsure if we'd be allowed and honestly didn't think to bring balloons. The food was delicious. Our child had a wonderful time in the outdoor play area. Our server, Nathaniel, was excellent. He made sure we were well catered to.

    As usual we all had a lovely breakfast. But there was one problem……the two young chefs cooking the pancakes.. they both seemed to completely ignore anyone that was not young blonde and gorgeous…..at one point 4 of us stood in queue ….they choose to ignore us and only serve the pretty young ladies who were 5th in the queue. I asked why had we all been ignored but we were first in queue and he was quick to reply with “ I will serve who I want! “ This is not our usual service we get from The Ffolkes.

    Great atmosphere food and choice build your meal as much or as little as you like. I had the ‘Godzilla’ and Thai Fries. The flavours were plentiful and the chilli not overwhelming, the fries would be enough to share as the basis of the whole menu encourages.
