Downham Market Tips

The Crown is the very best place to eat, the Coaching Inn was built in 1700, pass through the big black gates and glance right, you will see the step used to mount horses. Either eat in the bar, or the Stables restaurant which as the name suggests used to be the stables when it was a coaching Inn, the food is seriously good value and in a really pretty pub, in the summer sit outside in the old courtyard where the stunning colourful hanging baskets please the eye. Parking in the town by the way is free! - Sharon

Denver - Norfolk
For a really pretty pub and delightful walk along a canal path the Jenyns Arms at Denver Sluice really is worthwhile, drive along sluice road and go further than you think you should across the sluice gates and you will see the small car park of the Jenyns Arms, to your right there is the canal path or straight ahead is the pub, once your drinks are chosen move outside and the really pretty garden sits on the edge of the water, the ducks and swans glide by and itís beautiful. A couple of minutes away is a working flour Mill and a couple of craft shops, one definitely worth calling into is the leather shop where everything is hand tooled, you can see the items being made.. fascinating.
