With a passionate young team and a vibrant menu of locally sourced, seasonal produce, The Duck Inn has been racking up awards and recognition regularly.
The ethos is on quality, local food, expertly prepared and delivered by a happy team in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. North Norfolk is the perfect place to deliver.
A rustic-smart gastropub, serving the best in local produce and East Anglian ales. Friendly and efficient service perfectly compliment the incredible food served up by chef patron Ben Handley and his team. Norfolk favourites such as Brancaster crab, steaming bowls of Norfolk mussels, locally-smoked salmon with gingerbread are regular highlights; along with Chef Handley’s famous black pudding-scotched quail’s eggs. Sundays’ roasts of local pork and Holkham Estate beef are widely regarded as the best along the coast.
With two stylish bedrooms; there is always the option to enjoy a wonderful evening meal and fabulous wines from an extensive list, before staggering upstairs to unwind under the snuggly duck-down duvets.
