The Old Coach House
The Old Coach House.
High Street, Thornham, Norfolk, PE36 6LT.
Tel: 01485 512 229.
Despite its name, this former Coaching Inn on the North Norfolk Coast is not all it seems… Sure, the frontage looks charming and traditional, and the front bar is also fairly true to its origins as a rustic coastal hostelry, but at the back The Old Coach House is secretly a rather swish Italian restaurant.
Rather unique to the locale, The Old Coach House could be described as ‘a country pub with a Mediterranean style’. Two bars at the front tick all the boxes for a lovely Norfolk pub (you’ll usually find a few friendly locals propping up the fixtures), complete with sink-into-sofas and local ales.
Out back, a bright, open restaurant decorated in cheerful colours and adorned with contemporary art offers homemade pies, pizza and pasta dishes. See the MAIN MENU.
Perhaps one of the nicest aspects of dining at The Old Coach House is its suitability for families. Their children’s menu will tempt even the fussiest toddler, while an outside play area and mini train will occupy them before the meal arrives (and maybe wear them out a bit – always worth a try!).
Pizzas are also available to take away. See the TAKEAWAY MENU.
Open Mon-Fri 8am-11pm, Sat 8am-12Midnight, Sun 8am-10.30pm.
