M is for March and Mother’s Day!


We can hardly believe that we are in March already and with the promise of spring just around the corner, we’re hoping that this marks an end to all this snow!  We’ve been lucky here in Burnham Market so far, and it has not affected our opening times; however, our chef was very close to missing his shift after getting stuck on a hill because of the snow drifts!  But like the trooper he is, he made it in in time for lunch service.

One thing to remember in March is Mother’s Day (not that you would forget), and we think a great way to spoil her is to bring her in for lunch with us!  With a special menu designed around Mum, you can choose from either two courses or three and pick from a selection of our best dishes.

We also have a stunning Afternoon Tea array if you wish to make your Mum a ‘lady that lunches’, with a selection of treat sized cakes and sandwiches served with either regular or fruit teas.

Just a quick mention that we are looking forward to having the Burnham Horse Trials back towards the end of March/early April too, so if you need accommodation for that, please contact us as soon as possible as they tend to fill up quickly.

And if you miss out on a room, you can still come see us for food and drinks, with our Sunday food hours now extended from 12pm to 8pm!

A gentle reminder that we are also a dog friendly pub and would love to see you and your pooch if you have been walking nearby, with free dog treats behind the bar, so please ask whilst you order your drinks!

Love Is In The Air!

We don’t know about you, but we have been thoroughly enjoying the super moon activity that we have been watching over Burnham Market lately! The clear skies and our location out in North Norfolk mean we have very little light to get in the way of the stars and it has been beautiful indeed!
Now that January is out of the way, we’re looking forward to what February will bring and with pancake day and Valentines Day falling in the same week, we’re not sure whether we’re more excited about flipping pancakes or helping you lovey lot celebrate your special someone!
We’re going to be running our normal menu for Valentine’s this year, and we have plenty of bubbly on ice ready and waiting so call us and book your table to secure your seat.
Further into the month, we have Race Night returning! If you haven’t been part of this before then make sure that you head over on 23rd Feb and get involved. With old horse race footage being shown on our tv, you get the chance to place your bets on the winner, with live commentary which is sure to get you excited and give you a giggle and if you want to make a real night of it, you can book a table and take advantage of our Race Night meal deal. 2 courses for just £14.95 starting from 6:30pm which is plenty of time to eat before the races start at 8pm.
If you’re looking for a room to stay in, we have availability on our rooms throughout February and we have added a discount too; check out our rates and available dates here.

If you have any questions regarding any of the above, feel free to call us on 01328 738321 and we will be happy to help!
