The Windham Arms was highly recommended by everyone who we spoke to about Sheringham. It’s a large pub, divided in two – that we rather naughtily labelled one side the ‘grockles‘ bar and the other the locals bar! (Though I hasten to add, that wasn’t the case – we did overhear some very interesting lifeboat stories in the grockles bar!)
As indicated by the sign, there was indeed delicious food. A combination of traditional English pub grub and Greek, with Ruth opting for the former and myself a Lamb Kelftiko, very much the latter. It was pretty good, though the veg that came with mine was a strange. I’m familiar with the concept of the sundried tomato but the sundried carrot? (Sadly I didn’t take a photo…so I guess for the purpose of the internets it didn’t happen).
The beer here was generally excellent. The first night I had a Humpty Dumpty brewery’s ‘Little Sharpie’ (not much to write home about), the second visit a Wolf’s ‘straw dog’ (a lovely straw coloured wheat beer) and the last visit Woodforde’s Nog. Nog has a special place for me as one of the first beer kits I tried to brew at home – and provided 40 excellent pints of dark beer for the last ever student party we had. It was great to try real Nog for the first time. Nothing like the kit, but much better. A proper sour old ale and very refreshing even through it is a dark beer.
Well recommended and definitely somewhere I would return to, if I do ever return to Sheringham!
