"Great little find....."
We received a pleasant welcome from the owner and our room was lovely with an en-suite bathroom and everything was very clean. Evening meal was special with amazing fish dishes to tempt us. I recommend the crayfish tails starter. Again we were looked after by everyone and had a pleasant nightcap and natter before retiring to our room. Breakfast in the morning again was very informal & campers who had been in for the evening meal the night before turned up for breakfast as they were so impressed Read less

"Nice staff, lovely food in an unusual Restaurant/B &B"
Last minute booking - got a good rate but the smallest- and possibly noisiest room. Hosts are charming; dinner was terrific ;breakfast a little less so- quality of sausage and bacon not quite to my liking- but overall an interesting and enjoyable stay. We would stay again if in the area but try for one of the other , larger
rooms. Read less
Likes:
Our hosts and the staff; location was convenient for where we were travelling but a little out of the way if you want to be in/around other facilities.
Dislikes:
Only the room - small and with only hand held shower over bath. But it was a late, cheap booking to be fair.

Recommended as 'a must' by food critics in East Anglia.

Rosette winning restaurant between 2008-2014 and 4 star Bed and Breakfast awarded by AA.

Colin and Sarah appeared twice on BBC Television News demonstrating seafood dishes and more recently featured in a 'Cutting Edge' documentary on Channel 4.

The Old Forge is a 14th Century former coaching station with forge and is steeped in history. It was a resting place for pilgrims journeying to nearby Walsingham Abbey and has a figurine placed on the wall which is a sign that the building has been blessed spiritually. It is mentioned in 'A Pilgrim's Progress'.

Based in Thursford, The Old Forge is perfectly situated for 'The Thursford Christmas Spectacular' and offers special rates for the show.
It also opens early for pre-theatre meals to get you to the show on time. It is centrally located with Historical Holt only a ten minute drive away, the beautiful sandy beaches of Holkham and Wells next the Sea only a fifteen minute drive away and the city of Norwich only a forty minute drive.

Colin and Sarah, his wife, are both experienced in the field of first class accommodation and cuisine. Colin, the chef proprietor trained in France and has worked in Inn on the Park and Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

Fresh seafood is the specialty and Colin has invented many of his own dishes which are immensely popular with local regulars who dine at the restaurant. Simple touches such as using the exquisite shrimps from The Wash topped on succulent pieces of fish make such a difference to food. Local crayfish tails cooked with different spices, many of which are grown in the garden and lobster cooked in its own juices are a must. Lobster, crabs and oysters are purchased daily from the infamous fishermen on the coast at Blakeney and Wells next the Sea and prepared with many of Colin's secret recipes.

Steak and lamb shank is available for your non-fishy friends.
