Late lunch in January

The Lifeboat Inn has plenty of room. There are bar, conservatory and restaurant and atmospheric corners to sit and rest after walk along beach. Staff is friendly. We ordered vegan butternut squash/pea risotto which was good and vegan basil gniocchi which was tasty.

Pros: Up to 8 vegan options

Cons: Expensive

Great place for a beer and lunch

We chose from the vegan menu and enjoyed the ratatouille and the main dish super food salad. The ratatouille was great but the superfood salad wasn’t very hardy. It only had a couple of spoonfuls of quinoa.

Upmarket pub with great vegan menu

The Lifeboat Inn is a first class pub, restaurant and hotel and booking is advisable especially at weekends when this popular corner of North Norfolk fills with walkers and other tourists.
Note that the Lifeboat now has a complete vegan menu with imaginative options for starters, mains and desserts. Several non-vegans from our group chose from the vegan menu and were not disappointed, especially by the roasted gnocchi.

A welcome break

We came to this pub after a good walk around the dunes to the beach and back. The pub is in a lovely setting; it’s dog friendly, and they have a full 3 course vegan menu, including multiple choices for each course. It was great to see a restaurant in this area trying something a bit different. The starters and desserts were both delicious, and the mains we had (a sweet potato and squash crumble) were good, if not quite as good as the rest.

Pros: Separate vegan menu with multiple choices, Different from your standard falafel salad, Leading the way for vegan food in the area

Cons: Quite expensive
