The White Horse Inn is gloriously situated on the marshland coastline of North Norfolk at Brancaster Staithe.

This is a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, with its big blue skies, spectacular sunsets and lots of space to breathe. The coastline is a magical area to explore with breathtaking panoramic views across tidal marshes and endless sandy beaches.

The area is ideal for walkers, sailors, golfers, cyclists, birdwatchers and dog owners as well as holidaymakers, families and special occasion groups.

A friendly welcome is assured at this stylish, comfortable, tranquil yet bustling award winning establishment, full of Norfolk life - a true taste of Norfolk living.


The conservatory restaurant with sun deck terrace and adjoining dining area give spectacular views overlooking the Norfolk Coastal Path and the tidal marsh beyond to Scolt Head Island and is a great place to eat local seafood and seasonal produce. It is a perfect backdrop for a truly wonderful dining experience. Dining from any aspect is unhurried and, we hope, an enjoyable social occasion. Lunch is served from 12 noon to 2 pm and dinner from 6.30 to 9 pm.

The extensive restaurant menu celebrates the best of fresh local produce. Depending on the season, mussels, crab, lobster, oysters, shrimp, sea bass, mackerel and sea trout are in abundance. What better place to enjoy the freshest of fish delivered to the kitchen door by the village fishermen and local seasonal produce including asparagus, which is grown in beds across the road or samphire gathered from the salt marsh. Avrum Frankel, Head Chef, creates the menu to include daily specials from this local produce. The food is cooked simply but with skill & culinary flair. The award of 2 AA rosettes has reflected the consistency of the menu and service by the team for the past 4 years.

If you are lucky enough and the tide and season is right, diners will be able to see the local fishermen bringing home their catch of the day or indeed Cyril or Ben, our next door neighbour 'mussel men' cleaning and netting their mussels, which are grown and harvested at the bottom of the garden and delivered to the kitchen door.

There is also a landscaped sunken garden, planted with marsh type shrubbery for all day 'al fresco' eating. The garden comprises a solid roofed shelter area with sun canopy over the sunken seating area - both areas have heating. A separate purpose built kitchen is housed in the outdoor garden which serves a delicious breakfast from 9 - 11 am and for any other time of the day eating there is a scrumptious bar menu available from 11 am to 9.00 pm every day.

The bar is open for drinks at 12 noon.



The 15 en-suite bedrooms are spacious in design with contemporary furnishings and decor with seascape colours in mind - hues of blue, green, lavender and sand. Eleven rooms are double bedded and Four rooms have twin beds - Five rooms can convert into family rooms with extra 'z' beds if needed.

There are seven en suite rooms in the main building including 'The room at the top' which has split level facilities and viewing telescope.

There are eight ground floor rooms, architecturally designed with grass and sedum roofing which blends in the with marshland beyond, built into the natural contours of the land with their own outside terrace and access to the Norfolk Coastal Path at the bottom of the garden. These rooms are ideal for walkers, cyclists and those who like to be nearer the great outdoors. One of these rooms has disabled access.

Well-behaved dogs are allowed in these rooms which have an entrance wooded floor area for dog beds or muddy boots.

Many of the rooms overlook the tidal saltmarsh with views to Scolt Head Island and the beautiful sandy beach and the sea beyond.

All rooms have tea and coffee making facilities, digital flat screen TV and radio and wireless broadband Internet access.
