12:15 Tried to visit the White Hart Rockland All Saints but once again What Pub was out of date and the pub no longer opens at lunchtime so came here instead. Quieter than last time but still a good atmosphere.

12:50 Fancied a pub lunch so came here. Two drinkers, rest diners. Pleasant place but mainly food trade.
Humpty Dumpty - Little Sharpie3.80ExcellentThis is a beer that can, in some pubs, sometimes live up to its name. Today though in tip top form.

19:15 The pub re-opened in June so we came to see what it was like. One other couple dining and a chap drinking at the bar when we entered, but before we finished our meal the pub was very busy with diners. Impressive for a Tuesday evening.

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Great Ellingham, Norfolk, NR17 1LE.

Closed for some time, now renovated and re-opened as a gastro pub. As the term suggests food is the main trade but there are three handpumps. When I first came here about ten years ago the pub had a rotating glass column filled with knick-knacks for sale. Something I have never seen before or since.

We have visited this pub 5 times, seen 11 different beers and tried 4 of them.
