Eating out in Blakeney
Whether you fancy a coffee and cake, afternoon tea, a light lunch, a traditional pub meal, a gourmet restaurant experience or a traditional Sunday roast with all the trimmings, these are all available within a 5 minute walk of Gardeners Cottage in Blakeney.
The White Horse Blakeney
A lovely large contemporary Norfolk pub that is dog and family friendly. It has been one of our favourites for over 15 years now. We used to go there with our children when they were little. Now we go with our adult children and our dogs. Owned and run by Adnams Brewery.
Really great food and nice atmosphere. Has several distinct eating areas. Has a regular menu and also a specials board. Very popular in high season so always advisable to book then. In low season you will usually be able to get a table on the day.
The Blakeney Hotel
Right on the quay at Blakeney and with views to die for. Nice restaurant but you need to dress up a little bit. Well behaved children and dogs welcome. We have never taken ours until they became adult. Lunch and dinner and we think they also do afternoon tea.
Also has an upstairs quiet room where you can have sandwiches and read the papers and look at the wonderful view. More expensive than The Kings Arms and The White Horse. Nice for a special treat or Sunday lunch. Nice place to take your mum for her birthday.
The Moorings Blakeney
Just off Blakeney Quay this is a lovely family friendly day cafe which in the evenings turns into a very nice grown up restaurant specialising in fish and seafood dishes.
On a Sunday they do an excellent Sunday lunch with a choice of roasts and all the trimmings. Advisable to book in high season, as very popular. In low season their opening hgours are reduced so check their website or telephone to book.
The Kings Arms Blakeney
A great local pub just off the quay in Blakeney near the spar serving traditional pub grub. It is child and dog friendly. Lots of room and enormous portions of food. Really good value for money. Log fires in winter. You can sit outside in the warmer months. No need to dress up you can come in straight from your walk. Proper pub with cosy feel.
Food on Blakeney Quay
In the warmer months you can usually get all day breakfasts, bacon butties and crab snadwiches on the various food stalls on the National trust car park. Our favcourite is the enormous ''Breakfast Bap'' cooked freshly for you and washed down with a mug of tea. Great if youve been walking the dog or up early crab fishing.
