The Fur & Feather is located on the premises of the Woodforde’s Brewery (also located adjacent is the bottle shop where you can pick up all the beers including some of the rarer/better ones - Norfolk Nip).
The pub itself is in a nice setting with a traditional feel and a good beer garden. The draft range is good with 6-7 Woodfordes on tap, when I visited there was the new(ish) Once Bittern and the aptly named Headcracker available. I haven’t eaten there so can not comment.
All in all this is a good pub with a selection of local ales, the location is rural (out of the way) but is in a good location for a quick beverage after a short jaunt in the Broads. Worth a look.

Seems to be very popular place to eat. At least on Wednesday at 1 pm.
7 casks (all Woodforde’s obviously) and 4 taps of some other brews. Not the cheapest around. Quite cozy. Location needs some effort (or a car and sober driver...).

A few visits here were my first ventures into real local ale & I’ve never looked back. Spacious pub, always guaranteed the Woodfordes range and as it’s a brewpub the condition can’t be faulted. I’ve eaten here on every visit and it’s always been cracking pub grub.

Finally got around to visiting it last year. I’ve been meaning to for ages as I’m a great fan of Woodforde’s beers, especially Wherry and Nelson’s Revenge. While I enjoyed my favourites there, I did find the Fur and Feather bitter, (brewed only for the premises?) a bit watery and not up to Woodforde’s usual high standards. I liked the shop too.

100% on the money. Set aside one of the finest breweries this earth has to offer - Woodforde’s Norfolk Ales - this is a little piece of paradise hidden amongst the farming lowlands of Norfolk. Food is tasty, substantial and varied and the service exceptional. The beer speaks numbers, far outweighing the set-out of the bar or the friendly patrons in this corner of the earth. Geez the boys at Woodforde’s brew a mean bunch of ales. Caught off hand commenting on the quality of the beers, a man approached us from the bar and lo-and-behold it was the head brewer Dr. David Crease. Spent the afternoon tasting various samples of various beers from various batches, had a laugh and got a grandish, royal tour of the new brewery. Thankyou Dave. As I said, one of the best!!!
