We serve hot lunches every day: homemade soups, main dishes, and desserts. We vary these specials every day - see our Specials boards. The dish of the day is usually ready by noon. In addition we have a full menu of light lunches, salads, snacks, cream teas, and sandwiches all day long. We have gluten-free bread for sandwiches and light lunches, scones and brownies. Please note we don't take bookings, just turn up and we will seat you as soon as we can.

Soup of the Day
Every day we serve a homemade soup with one of Rachel's freshly-baked cheese scones. To provide variety for our regular customers, we often try out new recipes - whether it is simple tomato, or apple, pea and mint our soup is made in our own kitchen with fresh ingredients. We try, where possible, to source our ingredients locally - from Bill Heap's hand-reared fen-grown carrots to the gooseberries and other delicacies from local market gardens.
Dishes of the Day
Again, we ring the changes with our dishes of the day. The main dishes range from local sausages in red wine, with mashed potatoes and green beans, to beef bourguignon. Usually it comes out of the oven for 12 noon, and when it has gone, it's gone. We also offer homemade desserts every day.
Generous servings of mixed green salad, beetroot, potato salad and bread and butter with, for example:
- Smoked salmon
- Warm brie and cranberry sauce
- Norfolk ham and spicy red onion marmalade
- Smoked chicken with spicy tomato chutney
- Warm goat's cheese with homemade tomato chilli jam
- Peacocks Salad
Our grilled open sandwiches on toasted rye bread served with a mixed side salad are wonderful and range from goats cheese and beetroot to stilton pear and walnut. Our menu also includes four delicious variants of the classic French croque monsieur (although we doubt whether you'll find a croque as delicious in Paris) as well as scrambled egg and smoked salmon, and more.
We serve a wide range of sandwiches in white or granary bread with a salad garnish. They are all made freshly to order and can be served toasted if you would prefer. Fillings can incude:
- Smoked salmon and cream cheese
- Egg and cress
- Brie with homemade blueberry chutney
- Farmhouse cheddar with real ale chutney
- Cheddar and apple with spicy red onion marmalade
- Bacon, banana and maple syrup.
