      Reedham Ferry Public House - Reedham Norfolk It's a great location however the food is dreadful and the service is poor.We complained about the food - King Prawn Salad - they were not King Prawns but small prawns for a Prawn Cocktail. Awful food - highly priced! Service was terrible - under staffed and they dont like complaints! I recommend giving this a wide berth! Very disappointing.

      I'd like to use this slot to alert Norfolk pubgoers to a remarkable website. It's not a guide to pubs (which is why I haven't entered this opinion in the Guides section) but presents historical information on all known Norfolk pubs, past and present. Understandably, it's called norfolkpubs.co.uk and is quite fascinating for anyone who may be curious about the drinking places of the county. It's being compiled by a small group of people who (a) like pubs; (b) have spent a lot of time delving into the archives and collecting old pictures of pubs; (c) are making a very good job of clarifying the often complex history of pubs - changes of name, history of ownership, names of past licensees, reasons for closure, happy news of reopenings, pictures from old postcards etc. And, often, some curious tales from old newspapers and other sources telling of events in the pub's history. I've added a few bits of information from my own researches, but the bulk of the work is being carried out by a few dedicated drinking historians. The site is well designed, easy to use and developing rapidly as more source materials are studied. Whether you want to know about the history of some ancient village pub, or wonder what happened to your grandad's favourite pub, or are simply curious about whether a brash city bar is wholly new or a reincarnation of an older establishment, this is the place to look. It's not confined to someone's idea of 'best' pubs, or to old ones, or to any particular sort - it's comprehensive (or it will be when it's finished). I guarantee that once you start looking you'll be amazed at how much there is to find out about Norfolk pubs - and you may well resolve to visit a few more yourself.
