About the hotel

Originally a cottage home of a Mousehold shepherd, The King William IV now stands in the garden grounds. It has been a tavern for at least 150 years and is mentioned in Joseph Manning's 1834 survey of licensed premises. Telegraph Lane, in those days would have been no more than a footpath leading from Gas Hill to Yarmouth Road.

The lane was named after the semaphoring system used in 1807, when the site of the water tower was used as a vantage point to receive signals from Great Yarmouth in the event of a French invasion. Our bar is open all day from 11am for drinks or coffee. The popular restaurant is open 7am - 10am for breakfast 12 noon - 9pm for lunches, snacks & evening meals, we offer a varied lunch and dinner menu with dishes carefully chosen to make the most of local seasonal produce. Steeped in atmosphere and peppered with unique architectural treasures the city of Norwich is dominated by its magnificent Norman Cathedral boasting the second tallest spire in the country. Norwich is proud of its past and present status and it’s not hard to see why. Its ancient buildings and city walls make it the most complete medieval city in Britain today, still offering a rare blend of historic interest and modern sophistication. Its not just history which Norwich has in abundance. Norwich is home to a large number of beautifully ornate and well maintained parks and gardens. The secret garden hidden away in the heart of the city is breathtakingly calm and beautiful. Castle Gardens comes alive during the summer months. Venture out on a summers evening and take in the outdoor theatre productions and cinema screenings held at Castle Gardens to add that little extra sparkle to an evening out. Entertainment in Norwich doesn't stop with outdoor theatre. Dining out in Norwich is all about the pleasure of enjoying wonderful Norfolk produce. Restaurants in Norwich offer the sophistication of award winning eateries from trendy bistros to homely gastropubs.

Disappointed that despite phoning in advance to book, we were unable to have a meal on the Friday night.

If we had known this in advance we would have booked a meal elsewhere with our friends. Room not cleaned on the Saturday, despite our request that it was done.

Breakfast good on Saturday morning, less so on Sunday. Overall a disappointing experience, poor value for money, and I would not recommend. Always try to use independents, but such experiences put me off.

Very convenient for the city, ample parking space, easy access without going through pub.

Flexible breakfast time was a great idea. Bed comfy.
