Voted the nation’s favourite family pub, our 18th century village local on the Norfolk coast serves real ales from our microbrewery Brancaster Brewery, home cooked wholesome food, great pub clasics including Jolly Smokehouse specials, local seafood, stone baked pizzas and ice cream from a garden beach hut (and not forgetting the largest selection of rum on the coast!)

Families, muddy or sandy boots and muddy paws welcome in our pub which is at the heart of village life in scenic North Norfolk, just across the road from Brancaster Staithe harbour and beach.  

There is a great selection of real ales including ‘Brancaster Best’, ‘Oyster Catcher’, ‘Malthouse Bitter’, ‘Sharpie K12’ and ‘The Wreck’ from our very own 5 barrel Brancaster Brewery which produces small batches of top quality ale using the finest local Maris Otter barley grown at Wells-next-the-Sea. There's a consice cracking wine list, the biggest and best selection of rum on the coast and soft drinks including Norfolk Cordials, which are made locally with fresh natural ingredients. 

Relax with a real ale or drink in front of a roaring fire in winter or enjoy warmer days in our fun enclosed garden, great for the kids with its giant children’s play area, treasure chest and ‘Jolly Roger boat’. There are lots of seating areas and deck chairs for the grown ups. Our Eat, Drink and be Jolly themed garden beach huts are an outside service area. 

Looking forward to seeing you over the festive period
