About The dabbling Duck...
The Dabbling Duck pub was opened in 2006 as the result of a tireless community action group and a far-sighted local authority's 6 year campaign to prevent the beautiful old building (previously the Rose and Crown pub) from being converted into housing.
The Dabbling Duck now plays a vital part in the heart of the local community and is a focal point for the village. The owners regularly eat and drink at the pub with their friends and colleagues.
Drinkers are also well served at The Dabbling Duck which has been recognised by the receipt of the CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) Norfolk Pub of the Year 2011 award.
The pub is situated between the two large ponds which are inhabited by numerous friendly 'dabbling ducks' (from The Wind in the Willows – "ducks go a dabbling – up tails all!").
Delicious seasonal, locally sourced food.
6 tastefully decorated bedrooms.
