DAMM GOOD GASTROPUBS
Two Norfolk pubs have cemented their places as some of the best spots to eat in the UK, making it onto the prestigious Estrella Damm Top 50 Gastropubs list 2019.
Sitting alongside famed dining pubs such as The Sportsman and celebrity chef Tom Kerridge’s The Hand and Flowers are The
Gunton Arms of Thorpe Market, at 44 in its fourth appearance on the list, and
The Duck Inn in Stanhoe. This is the first time The Duck Inn has made the listing and is placed at 35, making it one of the highest new entries. The patrons of The Duck Inn, Ben and Sarah Handley, said being listed for the first time felt like a massive achievement.
Ben said: “It’s a reflection of the wonderful produce that we are lucky to have at our disposal here in Norfolk.”
Ben’s brother Sam, general manager of The Duck, added: “This is a wonderful celebration of the UK pub scene and we are incredibly proud to be representing our corner of Norfolk.”
