"...one a printer and the other a chef..."

Could it be that 3-D food printing might be on the menu? That could be interesting.

Well, my wife and I have just been for our lunch. Very good value for money. Mrs P had the salmon - there were two salmon steaks on the plate! I tried the ham, eggs (2) and chips. The ham was cut off the bone, not like the 'plastic' ham that was served up under the previous management. Meat is being sourced locally.

It's early days yet, work still taking place, and hopefully the very dark decor will be lightened, but a good start.

We are talking about the hotel at Sutton?

The most mediocre carvery, with the most awful room to have to eat it in.

My very best wishes to the new owner, power to your elbow my friend !.

We are talking about The Sutton Staithe Hotel, which is NOW under new ownership, so give it a chance. Giving opinions on how it was under the previous ownership is fairly irrelevant now.  Indifferent

Happy to support the honest and reliable pubs and businesses of The Norfolk Broads.

I have met Graham and Mark at the CatsEye Press.

Good couple of guys that did some sterling print work for me a couple of years ago.

Might have to go and take a look down there. Used to work there in the 90's and haven't been there since.

Have used the place since the 70s!

The new managers are based in the Happisburgh area with connections to the Hill House pub (Mark Pressman is a director of Hill House Inns Ltd).

They don't appear to have experience of running a business of this size but if they succeed (and I hope they do) that's irrelevant.

I popped in for a beer a few days ago and was pleasantly surprised.

The overpowering stench of cleaning fluid was absent. The, young, barman was pleasant and interested in real ales.

A pint of Southwold and a modern craft (real) ale were in excellent condition so I may well return.

I'd say give it a try.

Btw, there's an interesting read here on Graham Pressman's purchase of old printers for his business:-

Went in there yesterday for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it - as we always have done. I wish the new owners/managers and staff all the very best for the future.

I think it was TerryTibbs said earlier in this thread that he hoped the new owners would not try and fix what ain't broke (or similar sentiment).

We were there last weekend, and I am pleased to report that all is well at the Sutton Staithe Hotel.  It was fairly busy, but we were attended to by polite, efficient staff.  The food was good, plentiful, hot and reasonably quick (we had not ordered a starter, so the wait for a main course can seem slightly long, but the size of the portions made that wait entirely worthwhile!).  The beer was good to, and there was a choice of ciders, including on tap.  It may not be the cheapest place to eat, but certainly was not extortionate.

So, standard question :  "Will I Return?"  -  Yes.

Had the carvery on Sunday. Same good quality, they still do lamb. Also same friendly staff.
Will continue to go there for the carvery. Was an event on the Saturday night which went on till 11.30 but I suppose that's something that is going to happen. Will perhaps not moor there on a Saturday evening!

Can only be for the better. Was not impressed last time we were there. Will reconsider our July itinerary and add Sutton to the list of possible places to moor and eat if there's been a welcome improvement.
