    Acle Bridge Inn

    I really like the Bridge, it's totally unpretentious, and doesn't try to be something it isn't. Food is really good for the money, portions are pretty large and service was great. After we'd eaten the barmaid asked if we would like to bring out dog in, so we did (he's not very good with other dogs so we tend to keep him out of pubs) and she made sure he had his own 'safe space' gave him a packet of crisps and generally looked after all of us very well indeed. We will be returning later this year. If I wan't something a bit more 'upmarket' (not entirely sure that's the right word, but can't think of anything better) then we'll go to the Lion at Thurne, or the White Horse at Neatishead, as we will be later this year. In fact the only bad experience I've had on the broads was one in Horning many years back, but I won't name names, as it's still trading. They all have something unique to offer, and it's actually nice to see competition bringing the standard up, so often its the case that they know they have a captive audience, so why try harder.

    We are up during Lads week, but it’ll be me, the Doris and the dog 🤔

    Brinks Jazz 14th May - New Direction

    What a lovely tale after a sad beginning, so sorry for your loss, but definitely keep doing what you’re doing, it seems to be working!

    The village where I live, and went to school from 1985-91 has reached a new level of silly, we currently have a new build semi detached 2 bedroom house on the market for a paltry £785,000, yes over 3/4 million for a two bed semi... Edit: it’s sold STC

    Bow Thrusters

    To each their own, by my own admission, I don’t have the skill or knowledge built up yet (this year will only be my 4th week on the Broads with a sizeable gap between years 2 and 3) so I like the reassurance that it brings, to me it makes for a less stressful mooring (and I’m on holiday, therefore the less stress the better) and allows me to get into spaces that I otherwise might struggle with. that said, year 1, I didn’t have them, and didn’t struggle too much, but I didn’t know any better!

    Silverline Wisper

    Barnes and Faircraft from memory usually want £35/week, for us we wouldn’t go away (unless flying) without our lad, and £35 is about half the price of kennels, so double bonus really.

    A lovely spot in the afternoon!

    Diesel Emissions.

    I could be (and fairly likely am) wrong but I thought all the big ocean going boats (container ships, ferries etc) had to be fitted with ‘scrubbers’ these days to bring the emissions down? This was, I believe, one of the main reasons Brittany Ferries was decommissioning some of their older fleet (which they’re now not)

    A Bite To Eat

    I had to add all the ‘non-plates’ as living just outside Brighton more or less anything goes...

    A Bite To Eat

    I tend to favour the theory; does it come on a plate (also plank/slate/insert other non disposable culinary substrate here) if yes then it’s not fast food, this does get blurry though when you get a burger, or fish and chips at a pub, but no rule is infallible...

    A Bite To Eat

    Big fan of the Bridge at Acle, nothing out of this world, but just decent pub grub, decent portions, sensible pricing and a great welcome, we will be making a point of stopping there in October, also rated the Lion @ Thurne, so will be heading there too, and hopefully the white horse @ Neatishead this year as the tide times are slightly more favourable for Omega and Ludham Bridge...

    Lads Week

    Griff, you’ll have to let us know your itenary nearer the time and we’ll try and coincide somewhere along the way, presume you’ll be heading South? We’ll be staying North, but sure our paths will cross.

    Lads Week

    Exactly what I was hoping, we’re up on Omega again 6th-13th, so will hopefully see you about!

    Lads Week

    Did a quick search, but didn’t see it, when is ‘lads week’ this year?
