Welcome to The Gull

Four miles South of Norwich on the A146 lies The Gull Inn. This traditional country restaurant hold a varying selection of real ales as well as premium continental lagers. Anne and Mario welcome you to their country restaurant, and delight in preparing for you an extensive range of English and Continental cuisine.

Real Ale

Real ale straight from the barrel. We delight in the variety of real ale available and do all we can to present the cask conditioned beers as well as possible. Local brews such as Abbott Ale and IPA are firm favourites. We also have a different guest ale every week.

From Tuscany To Framingham!

Anne and Mario Iacovazzo came to Norfolk in 2002, bringing with them their experience of running restaurants in Paris and various parts of Italy. Since then The Gull has seen the benefit of extensive redecoration and the development of the menu to include a selection of dishes from around England and Europe. The drink menu has also been extended to include some of the best lagers and real ales available to a Free house.

18th Century Coaching Inn


Built in the 18th Century, The Gull Inn provides a country restaurant atmosphere within five miles of the centre of Norwich. There is a cosy atmosphere, where the open fire and exposed beams of the snug cast their spell; while in summer a garden provides an area with tables and seating to enjoy a meal and drinks in the open air.

During the week and on Saturday we have a lunchtime board that changes on a daily basis. Regular favourites include homemade Cottage Pie, Salmon Fillet in Cream Sauce and Tagliatelle Carbonara.

Real Ales
A variety of real ales are kept in the climate controlled cellar. This allows for the ale to be presented to you in top condition. All our real ale is served the traditional way, straight from the barrel, guaranteeing its freshness for our customers.


We have lagers that are old favourites, like Carlsberg and San Miguel, we also have East Coast IPA, Mild and Aspalls and Strongbow Ciders. We have a wide selection of bottled lagers kept in the cooler.

Children Welcome
Children are welcome at The Gull, and a child menu is always available during kitchen hours.

It should be noted that due to licensing laws, children are not permitted at the bar, but are allowed to use the pool room and of course the snug and the restaurant.
