I think I counted 7 liveaboards moored at Sutton yesterday. I don't have a problem with that as long as they recommence respecting the 24 x Hr rule once the rivers start getting used again G

The White Horse at Neatishead and The Lion at Thurne are both advertising for all kinds of staff. Plans would seem to be underway although there’s no dates yet on their Facebook pages.

We realised on Thursday (it was our 34th anniversary) that it was exactly a year since we had eaten out anywhere.  Last year we went to a local hotel for lunch and couldn't understand why we were the only people in the enormous dining room overlooking the river on a beautiful Spring day. Although the lockdown was yet to materialise  people were obviously wary of going out and about. Pre Covid we used to eat out at least twice a week so as you can imagine we have missed that. So we thought we'd get a takeaway last Thursday.It was o.k. but that's about the best that can be said for it. We're really looking forward to the freedom of going out again, whenever that will be.

Like you, our anniversary is also in March and for the last 3 years (2018-20) we have booked an evening meal on the 21st at the Bridge Inn Acle, which is our favourite venue on the North Broads. Last year, we were so disappointed to get a phone call the day before to say that as the lock-down was due to start on the 22nd, they were closing on the 20th. So it looks like we can next go for our anniversary there in 2022.

We have had meals out from time to time as and when restrictions have allowed. More recently we have had Chinese takeaway delivered from Horning and that’s been a real treat. Great food delivered fresh and hot.

The Yare in Brundall will be open, the coffee shop in the village is takeaway only for bacon rolls etc and East Hills coffee shop is now a fish restaurant  currently doing takeaway only.

Last I heard from surlingham ferryhouse was planning on garden service 11.00am to 8.00pm with limited menu, that will do for me till the big open up, at least we'll be able to moor up and get fed and slaughtered watered with leccy plugged in so my poor batteries get a toasting, I'll just have to take the telly again.

I was reading this morning that the Riverside Kitchen next to Hotel Wroxham is under new ownership, completely revamped and renamed Riverside Tea Room and Coffee Shop, keeping it simple and pooches welcome. Looking forward to giving them a go when we can.

I had heard that the previous owners had shut down because of Covid restrictions and that their lease was due to renewed at a rate that would not make their endeavours profitable.

The Kings Arms at Ludham are waiting to hear from the landlords to see if they are prepared to do a partial rent deal, they are really dragging their feet however.

They will post on their Facebook page as soon as they hear anything

Your diligence does you credit Mr Fire Sir :default_icon_bowdown: 

Please keep up the good work as I suspect it will be something of a moving feast 

Do hope the Bridge can get the staff trained up which I'm sure they can. Arguably the best run pub on the Broads (IMHO of course). 

Any news about the Dog? I think you mentioned a while back they would be closed until Easter? 

Anyway, won't the Waveney be more on your radar now? :default_norty:

They told me they will be closed until "March" and they were using this time for renovation but this was back in November 2020. I'm in the process of trying to get an update but still waiting as yet

I found this Facebook site, which has lots of information/posts from the pubs and restaurants of the Broads. I learned for instance that The Bridge at Acle is having lots of enquiries to book outdoor tables, but is yet to start taking reservations. It could be a useful "noticeboard" for those of us who like to eat out on holiday. 

Food On The Norfolk Broads. It's a private group you have to register with. They let me in....speaks for itself :default_icon_twisted:

As the 12th April is fast approaching I do hope theses people going out to Pub Gardens Only and shops sensibly with distances still in place and Face Mask to be worn for some to come as it's been said on the News . hopefully by June the Lock Down is gone as this only leaves us all with this problem I think restrictions In what form does this takes?
