Well, we feel really lucky to be so very close to The Duck Inn in Stanhoe. It has become a real hotspot under the ownership of Chef and front of House team Ben and Sarah Handley. They have won a truly impressive, and well deserved range of awards and plaudits, including the Waitrose/Good Food Guide Regional restaurant of the year and the GQ food and drink award Best Pub - and seriously, the list goes on and on - have a look at their website for more. But also, it is a great local pub, serving reliably delicious and interesting food, without forgetting that there is always someone who wants a fabulous steak and chips and they deliver it all professionally and in a really warm and friendly way. Another wonderful local place that we really love.Read More
One of the wonderful things that happens at Creake Abbey, just outside Burnham Market, in North Creake is wonderful Art Exhibitions. This photo is from a Harry Cory Wright Exhibition in 2017. The Photo is from his 'Hey Charlie' collection of work.
They also host a hugely popular monthly Farmer's Market - featuring our own delicious Great Granola made by Sara Bonallack. This is held the first Saturday of every month - get there early.
There is a brilliant food hall too, a good place to stock up on the way home. The cheese counter is a particular favourite of ours. Everything is at peak ripeness and there is a great selection too.
There are several other shops with desirable bits - antique garden bric a brac, divine french soaps etc. Worth a little wander...
All of this is set in a beautiful countryside location in the grounds of ancient Creake Abbey and just a few miles from us at The White House.
They also do picnics, hampers and food to take away - ring ahead or ask us to help. Delicious.
