Filled with history and traditional rural comfort, Elveden Inn sits on the picturesque Elveden Estate, which provides much of the seasonal produce that goes in to the menu of modern British recipes. There are also live music events, and pub quizzes that draw a regular following

Traditional British recipes are given inventive makeovers throughout the Elveden Inn menu. Light starters include black pudding potato cakes with tomato and tarragon coulis, while international additions can be found in the vegetarian options like the roasted pepper, courgette, parmesan and basil rigatoni. Juicy pork loin steak is glazed with paprika and honey, while the classic option of pork, leek and apple sausages comes served with lyonnaise onion and parsley mash, green beans and Guinness gravy.

The bar at Elveden Inn Thetford serves a range of local beers, as well as a full wine list with bottles from around the world. For dessert, there is strawberry panna cotta with almond snap, and the indulgent dark chocolate and Guinness marquise with toffee crème fraîche.

A snug rural escape with a truly accomplished menu, Elveden Inn is a 9-minute drive from Thetford Rail Station.

    Service was very slow. Warned about a delay but even the promised starter was delayed for half an hour. Had to ask for jug of water 3 times.

    The food was lovely but sadly the experience was not. The wait was interminable; it was freezing cold; we were seated next to a door and window where our 'Special anniversary' view was people smoking, drinking out of bottles and staring at us. Before the food arrived, we were on the verge of getting up and leaving. We had plans to go elsewhere after dinner, but dining at Elveden had taken so long, it was too late to do so. So, no, not a good experience. Spoiled our anniversary celebrations and, to cap it all, we all had upset stomachs when we got home. Yes, we had all eaten the same food :( Coincidence? Not an experience we wish to repeat. And, as regular Elveden Courtyard customers, that disappoints us even more :(

    Restaurant was fine our food was o.k. but overall found the menu very disappointing we all had haddock hand cooked chips were more like wedges.Prices were a little high £1 for a splash of lemonade in a pineapple juice.

    We had a lovely time celebrating my daughters birthday. The staff were friendly and efficient even joining in singing Happy Birthday. The food was very tasty and varied. The venue bright and warm.

    Good service. Felt the menu could have been a little broader.
