Four of us, all enjoyed the meal immensely and you were kind enough to supply an extra dish of spinach for one of us as he enjoyed it so much. Lovely decor, good atmosphere, comfortable and friendly. Second time I have had lunch with you and will definitely come again.

    Wonderful meal the seabass was fantastic the staff as usual were brilliant and the restaurant is one of our favourites

  • (((** 19 June 2017 by Shirley Bunkell from Norwich

    Service was fine. However, disappointed with the meal and thought it was expensive for what we had. The bread was too 'heavy' and the crust was too hard, both in the roll and in toast form. Thought there were also too many complex items on the menu, insufficient simple ones - clever, clever cooks need to be controlled. This is about the fourth time at this restaurant and was probably not the best meal we have had here. Condition of Old Speckled Hen was first class.

    Very happy with overall experience, food was excellent I had Sea Bass and it was lovely. Attention from staff was very good it was a hot night and at their suggestion we moved outside for deserts and coffee which was really kind and showed a lot of thoughtfulness on their part.

    Excellent food, nice staff and good atmosphere.

    Lovely meal, as usual, with very friendly and helpful staff, although I wasn't that keen on the table we were seated at - there were 5 of us, and I was at one skinny end table and felt out on a limb (quite appropriate as a description, given the tree-trunk tables). That's probably not a good table arrangement for anyone. I probably should have asked to be moved, as I'm fairly sure that would have been OK, but didn't think of it until too late. My only very small request to the chef would be to add a nice indulgent chocolate desert to the menu on a more regular basis - dark chocolate, not milk. Still one of my favourite places to come for a treat because although it is not cheap, the food is always really great.

    We cycled out from norwich on a lovely evening for an early dinner. Drinks outside, good small menu, fish and samphire, all delicious.

    Delicious meals beautifully presented. An original menu and a very comfortable environment. We loved the atmosphere, which was not too formal, and spacious enough to allow privacy while still feeling friendly.
