Not such a jolly good show from the sailors

Advantages: Massive portions. Cheap and cheerful. The pub houses a brewery.
Disadvantages: Rather tatty pub. Not that warm inside. Food was rather hit and miss.

...During a recent break to Norfolk we stayed in the small village of Brancaster Staithe which is about 25 miles from the better known town of King’s Lynn. We were lucky enough to have two pubs within walking distance of our holiday rental cottage and on th ...

Review of The Red Lion, Winfrith Newburgh

Crate Expectations

Advantages: Delicious food. Generous portions. Welcoming ambience. Friendly service.
Disadvantages: No parking near the pub - you need to use a nearby pay and display car park

The building housing the Crate and Apple has somewhat of a chequered past and its changed hands a few times in the last five years or so. Originally a rather grotty student infested pub called “The Swan”, it was transformed into rather stylish bar-cum-ea ...
