When you long for a pub lunch - go to the Fishermans Return
Winterton-on Sea is a small village in Norfolk. The beach here is sandy and wide, and it's where grey seals come onto the land every winter to give birth to their pups. It's a very popular holiday destination, and as pretty as a picture. For a hearty lunch and cold drink, the Fishermans Return is hard to beat. With a traditional interior and large outdoor seating area, it's the perfect place to rest after a long morning on the beach.

The Fishermans Return was built more than 300 years ago to be the heart of a quiet working village. It's located a short distance down The Lane nestled in amongst residential houses. As a Freehouse, it isn't tied to any brewery and serves real ales, ciders, wine and spirits. Local beers are available most days too.

The food is homemade and traditional. Fish and chips, sausage and mash, ploughman's lunch and pies are all on the menu. There is a specials board as well. They can run out of food especially at the weekend because it is such a popular place to eat.

There are 6 modern bedrooms at the pub if you're looking for a place to stay in the area.

The roads around the Fishermans Return are very narrow so parking is difficult. It is best to park at either the beach car park a few minutes away, or on the wider road that leads into the village.
