Food & Drink

The Maids Head Hotel is increasingly becoming known for the food and drink served in the restaurant and private dining rooms, bar and lounges.

Our 2 AA Rosette Winepress Restaurant offers some of the best local and seasonal dishes in the County. Guests have the option of our tasting menu, complete with wines, or a traditional a la carte menu, prepared and served by our highly skilled kitchen and front of house teams. For a lighter bite we have a delicious bar and lounge menu, or for a little indulgence try our delightful Afternoon Tea. Sunday lunch is also highly popular – just sit back, relax and enjoy!

An inn has operated on the Maids Head site since the 13th century and the original inn was called the Molde Fish or Murtel Fish Tavern. The name the Maids Head, gets its first public mention  on 22 November 1472 in a Paston Letter, when John Paston recommends the inn as a good place to stable your horse. The Maids Head has had a long history of looking after visitors and local people including the Black Prince who was entertained by the people of Norwich when he visited in 1350 and Queen Katherine of Aragon visited in 1519.
