One of my favourite pubs, it’s not local but I go here as often as I can. The food is fresh and delicious and not over priced. The outside area is brilliant especially in the summer time, it has a big enclosed area for the children including a zip wire. Inside has a cosy proper pub feel. When we went last week we were made to feel really welcome (even though we’re not locals). Some pubs round here you walk in and the whole pub turns round to see who’s dared enter! The only downside to this place is that it’s not in walking distance. They look like they have a great selection of drinks, just a shame I’m always driving.

Had an amazing pub quiz night here! When we were invited for a quiz and pie, I was expecting a quiz and classic microwave pie job - not delicious artisan pies and a very slick pub quiz to match! Would definitely come again, it was excellent.

Recently under new management, the quality of food has been fantastic. We have eaten dinner (where the menu choices are excellent) as well as Sunday roast in the past month and both were brilliant. Staff friendly and quick. The bar area seems more spacious than previously and the garden will be excellent in the summer with outdoor beer taps. Dog friendly which is a big plus in my book. Warm and welcoming for all, families, couples etc. Great local beers as well as your normal brands.

Brilliant pub. Popped in today before a wedding. It was a lovely setting with a great garden. Service was excellent too absolutely cannot fault it. Poor planning resulted in us being busy drinking great beer and realising we didn't have a taxi booked to the wedding venue 2 miles away. The landlord, far too kindly, got us to the wedding venue. Absolutely above and beyond. Will definitely be back.

Such an excellent night at Darbys this evening. Thank you. The new owners really understand hospitality and the food, beer and environment prove this. What’s more (and a rarity nowadays) is the staff are excellent, super attentive- and happy!! We shared a wood fired pizza as well as some things from the main menu. My husband asked if we could do half and half (as in toppings) and the pizza peeps didn’t batter an eyelid and just did it- and created a superb pizza delivered on a wooden paddle within minutes of ordering. Definitely try the Blue and Black Pizza- it’s a game changer. Awesome atmosphere tonight in the garden listening to live music and seeing so many children running around enjoying the vast play area, and large, safe garden space from sunset to starlit wide Norfolk skies. Cracking Norfolk village pub- can’t wait to visit again and see what else the new owners can bring to the table!
