The Willow House is a beautiful 16th century, grade 2 listed, family run inn & restaurant with en-suite accommodation, located in the market town of Watton, Norfolk. We are situated in the heart of Breckland, close to the ancient Peddars Way and Wayland Wood- the scene from 'Babes in the Wood'.

The Drink

On offer in our bar are a selection of great real ales, lagers and wines from across the Globe. If you are a lager drinker you will delight in our draught selection of Czech's finest Staropramen, the 'slow' beer from España, San Miguel. Or the slightly lighter Hosten Vier.

Alternatively, you may wish to try some of our beers sold by the bottle, from Corona to Budvar, Grimbergen to Erdinger Weissbier and Flying Dog’s Easy IPA to local ales, mild and lager.

If you are a real ale drinker you will not be disappointed at The Willow House. For the first time in 2012 The Willow House has been added to CAMRA's Good Beer Guide, due to us always having 4 ever changing cask ales.

We stock beers from local breweries such as Buffy's, Wolf, Moon Gazer, Humpty Dumpty and Elmtree as well as larger breweries such as Fullers, St. Austell’s and Adnams.

Why not call in and see for yourself.
