The Ferry Inn, Horning is a riverside pub and restaurant just over an hours cruising east of Wroxham on the Norfolk Broads.

As well as being a free house with a very good selection of beers, it also has 2 sizeable dining areas, which means even in busy times, you should be able to get a table.

There are moorings, but we would recommend that you get there early evening to get a space as it can get busy. And it’s worth mentioning that they do charge for mooring, but part or all of the fee is refunded if you eat in the restaurant. So just ask the mooring attendant for details before you moor.

The Ferry Inn has a very large beer garden and great kids play area with lots of things form them to do.

There are many other features including free wi-fi as well as wheelchair access and baby changing facilities.

Easty and I did spend an evening at the Ferry Inn where we tried their famous carvery and of course a few ales. We dined in their newly refurbished restaurant and found the food was plentiful and delicious as was the traditional and local real ales which included Woodfords Wherry, Nelson’s Revenge and our favourite, Woodfords Sundew.

Whether you’re stopping off for a quick lunch or are taking the family in for an evening meal, we have to say that the Ferry Inn not only offers good service and a varied and tasty menu, we think that the carvery at only £7.99 for adults and £4.99 for kids is exceptional value.

And we should also point out that the bar is also reasonably priced….. and encouraged us to stay for a couple of more ales.

So, if you are heading past Horning, we would highly recommend that you stop off at the Ferry Inn for something to eat and maybe a few ales……. Did I mention the ales before?
