As staycations in the UK are on the rise and there are more people looking to eat out on their holidays, why not check out some of the best places to have a pint in Norfolk when staying at our East Anglia holiday parks over the summer months?
As well as drinking your favourite beers in some welcoming local pubs, you can try some fantastic real ale, some of it brewed in Norfolk itself.
In the village of West Acre in the heart of Norfolk, the small pub is charming and always busy – just one sign you need to visit when on your holidays. There are always at least three high quality guest ales served on a day to day basis, and the guest ales changed regularly, so anytime you stop by, there will be something different to try out.
The Dabbling Duck
Situated in a lovely location in the attractive village of Great Massingham between two ponds, The Dabbling Duck has previously been awarded Norfolk Pub of the Year in 2011 by Campaign for Real Ale. The old building is an interesting place to sit back with a beer, and the friendly atmosphere will bring you back year after year.
The Fat Cat

In Edgefield you can enjoy an evening meal out, as well as sample the five real ales served there, including its own Edgefield Old Spot brewed locally at the Wolf Brewery.
In the seaside town of Cromer, you can pop into the family-run pub The Wellington. Located close to the pier, it serves real ales all year round.
