In September 2003, I was on honeymoon (3 months pregnant at the time) with my husband and two year old daughter. We moored up at Acle. It was late afternoon. We all washed and changed and went in search of some food. We stopped at the Bridge Inn to ask if we could order a meal. My husband spoke to the manageress. She was very unhelpful and discourteous and said the restaurant was fully booked and no more meal orders were being taken. By this time it was 8.30pm. One of the waiters overheard my husband and he recommended The Red Lion in the town and gave us the number for the local taxi. The taxi driver was very kind and thoughtful and he picked us up after our delicious meal in the town. We are due to visit the Broads again this year in June but, we will be giving The Bridge Inn a very wide berth. It does not state in any brochures that meals have to be booked in advance at The Bridge Inn.

I've been there twice...
The first time was at about 6pm one evening - family of three, looking for dinner and wine, with a willing desire to hand over hard-earned cash - and we were told that the food wait was about 2 hours. So we trotted back to the boat and cooked pasta.
The second time was a lunchtime - I have no memory at all of the food or drink, so it can't have been very good.

When Richard, our neighbors and myself stopped there in September, it was not a warm, fuzzy kind of place.  In the future I would rather take the mast down, go under to bridge and take the short walk to the Hermitage up at Acle dyke.  Much better food and way better atmosphere.

we have stopped there a total of 3 times for food and out of the 3 times 2 of those were downright awful the only reason we ate there twice and it was bad was because the first time it was rather nice (even if the service was sub standard) does anyone know of any nice pubs for meals in that immediate area

The last time we ate there it was like the works canteen. I can't recommend it. Good place to put the mast up and down though  Smile

The last time I went there was Saturday 20th November last year. No trouble mooring outside, we were the only boat Smile . Waited for pub to open at 6pm. Went in and had a couple of pints, no one else turned up so we left to walk to The Hermitage.

We arrived at the Hermitage to find it closed, due to an extension being built, so we continued on into Acle and found a restaurant I would recommend called Grumpy's. Good service, very large portions and reasonably priced.

We left Grumpy's and decided the walk back to the Bridge Inn to let dinner go down and a couple more pints would be good. We arrived back at 9.15 only to find the Bridge Inn closed. Luclily I had some beer on the boat Smile .

Next morning we had to pour warm water over the ropes to be able to untie them, where they had become that frozen.

I tired to eat there last May, but the resturant did not allow children and the family room had been pre-booked for a function, leaving no where for children to eat. That day we went to the Hermitage where we had a very good meal and the child was made to feel welcome.

I don't know if Grumpy's allows children, but in future stops at Acle will involve a visit to either the Hermiatge or Grumpy's to eat, although the Bridge Inn is not bad if your drinking only.

The picure is us leaving the Bridge Inn on a very frosty Sunday morning.

This was the first pub we ever stopped at on our first trip to the Broads last year. We hadn't even picked our boat up by this time, just needed a drink and a rest after driving down from Yorkshire. We pulled up, all excited (well I was, men don't get that way do they?), but we were not impressed, and became a bit worried about how the week would pan out... Needless to say, after this, and then a ropey start with a tatty boat that we took back after a day (changed to another boat at another yard), all went well and we were hooked!

This message thread is a great help - am gonna check out all the places on our next route...

Karen

cheers!
