Restaurant description

A beautiful 17th-century inn overlooking the Norfolk countryside, The Brisley Bell was named Best Pub in the 2017 and 2019 Norfolk Food & Drink Awards and Norfolk Hero’s Best New Food & Drink venture 2018. With a lovely beer garden, croquet lawn and two crackling inglenook fires, this is a perfect spot to relax and sample gourmet flavours from trusted local suppliers.

Michelin-trained Head Chef Hervé Stouvenel crafts mouthwatering recipes on the meat led Brisley Bell menu, filled with international influences. Enjoy a range of delicious local dishes throughout the week at both lunch and dinner with a menu which is constantly evolving to reflect the changing flavours of the seasons. On Sundays there are generous Sunday roasts with all the trimmings, perfect to enjoy with a wine from a local supplier.

The Brisley Bell in Norfolk also serves craft beers and cask ales from a selection of local breweries, and whiskey from a distillery just outside Norwich. Be sure to try the ice cream from Lakenham Creamery too, or tuck in to the signature cheese board.

Filled with eclectic style, The Brisley Bell offers diners a true taste of seasonal Norfolk, all in a tranquil countryside setting.

    It was a lovely meal, duck, curried cauliflower & goats cheese and liver. The red cabbage was superb. We would have preferred the green veg. i. e. beans and cabbage to be less al dente. The sticky toffee pudding was delicious.

    The food was first class. My wife was so pleased that with her starter and main, calves liver, she didn’t leave a bit. My only problem is I can’t eat many greens and it would have been better to get a root vegetable choice. Staff very pleasant. Will be going again.

    Greeting was very good; the young lady behind the bar recommended a very nice champagne and a good red wine. We were shown to a table in a quiet room and were looked after by two very nice young ladies. The food was excellent - we could only eat two courses as there was so much food. All in all, we had a fine experience (my wife's birthday).
