The Lifeboat Inn is a traditional coastal hotel situated in Thornham village minutes from the stunning sandy beaches on the North Norfolk coast which of course is paradise for all dog lovers and pet friendly Lifeboat Inn warmly welcomes all of the four -legged community..
The Lifeboat Inn serves seasonal changing menus that represent the very best of British food and offers a variety of places and cosy corners with roaring fires, comfy sofas to dine or simply have a drink and unwind. Whether you prefer to dine in our history-soaked bar, spacious, bright conservatory or relaxed dining room, we're as passionate about the quality of our food as we are about its provenance.
With some of the UK's best local producers on our doorstep, we're proud to be able to showcase locally-reared meats, freshly caught fish and Norfolk grown vegetables on our comprehensive, home-cooked menu.
Our Head Chef and his dedicated, highly skilled team knows just how to make the most of this locally-grown fayre. Our menus evolve constantly and feature seasonal produce while it is at its best.
From delicious, set-you-up-for-the-day hearty breakfasts, to traditional lunchtime or evening meals like fish and chips, country pates, ploughman's platters, crisp salads, hearty soups and stews and the best Sunday roasts, rest assured that each and every dish is sourced, prepared and cooked with provenance in mind, from field, sea or river to fork. All our breads are baked daily in our kitchen ovens; as are our indulgent desserts, even the ice-cream.
Catering for all dietary requirements (vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy -free), we also provide a well-balanced children's menu. Small groups with set menus for any occasion, whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner, can also be catered for.
If you are looking for a private space for you and your guests and enjoy eating outside then why not choose one of our pavilions?
Beautiful and stylish our cedar wood pavilions are perfect for groups, private dining, parties and celebrations. It is a versatile outdoor dining space that can be enjoyed regardless of the weather conditions in our charming courtyard at The Lifeboat Inn.
As well as being perfect during the spring and summer warm weather, each pavilion can have its blinds rolled down and with a heating lamp inside ensures they can be used even if we cannot guarantee the weather! The smaller pavilion can seat up to 10 guests and the larger pavilion can seat up to 14 guests.
Our kitchen team can create a special banquet style menu just for you and your group or you can choose from our a la carte menu.
The Lifeboat is situated near Hunstanton, Brancaster and Holkham beaches, the RSPB bird reserve in Titchwell and on the doorstep of the royal estate at Sandringham.
We understand that whether you're here on a day trip or treating your dog to a well-deserved mini-break, your four-legged friends should be as welcome as you are.
We offer thirsty pooches a bowl of water and they can dine with you in our cosy bar or in front of our roaring log fire in the lounge.
