The Parson Woodforde

When you visit us at The Parson Woodforde you’ll find a superbly renovated, privately owned country inn with stylish en-suite accommodation, a top-notch restaurant and a traditional oak-beamed bar. Our friendly team look forward to welcoming you.

You’ll discover us in a lovely quiet location in the historic village of Weston Longville, only 9 miles from Norwich lying between the Dereham and Fakenham roads. Drop in for a drink and mingle with the locals, or enjoy a leisurely meal and perhaps stay in one of our beautifully appointed rooms. After a good night’s sleep we’ll get your day off to a great start with our award-winning breakfast!

Opening Times

Our restaurant is a lovely open-plan dining room where traditional oak-beams and contemporary furnishings create a harmonious and relaxing ambience. It’s the perfect setting for you to enjoy a romantic dinner, family celebration or night out with friends.

Our Head Chef and his brigade are passionate about food. Every dish on the frequently changing menu is freshly prepared from the finest ingredients – locally sourced wherever possible.

You can choose to eat from our comprehensive main menu, packed with traditional favourites, or from our varied and ever-changing Chefs’ specials list – which ever you choose we’ll happily accommodate you. On Sundays, we serve a Sunday Lunch menu that combines the best of both, plus of course our delicious choice of three roasts, all served with five fresh vegetables and Yorkshire Pudding.

Whatever your taste we promise you an enjoyable meal in delightful surroundings. We believe in great food at affordable prices. You are our number one priority and we want you to return time after time. Our front of house team, led by the owners Allyson and Steve, are ready to welcome you.

Norfolk is rich in great produce and our kitchen’s philosophy is based on seasonality, provenance and flavour. Game, fish, meat and vegetables are chosen with care daily. We have a close relationship with the finest suppliers in the county and they know that we insist on buying the best. We don’t do run-of-the-mill at The Parson but we do believe in offering great food cooked with passion and flair.

Kids’ meals, vegetarian options and special dietary requirements are all happily catered for. Please advise when booking.

As of February 2019 we now also serve food on Sunday evenings (for table bookings only) 6.00pm to 8.00pm and the pub closes at 9.00pm.
