Positive Reviews


Great for exploring Norfolk

If you want to just park your car and do all your exploring from one central spot, then The Lifeboat Inn in Thornham will be the perfect location for you. Guests who enjoy a good walk describe the coastal walks as magnificent, and tend to come back each year.


Cosy restaurant and bar area

Many guests have described the restaurant and bar area as the best place to be every evening. There is a roaring fire where visitors can gather around and make new friends, or just relax with a specialty cocktail or glass of wine. Most guests don't leave till late at night.


Great steaks

Many visitors have commented on the delicious cuisine that is served at the restaurant. The steaks have been complimented over and over again, since it is reported that they are always cooked to perfection. You should try the fresh fish and salads too.

Negative Reviews


No pet free rooms

Each and every guest room at The Lifeboat Inn is a pet-friendly room. For those who do not generally travel with their pets, this is something that they would prefer management to change. Suggestions have been made by some guests to allocate a number of rooms as pet free.


In need of an upgrade

Guests who have stayed at this Inn are delighted to report that there is an upgrade underway. Currently the carpets are a little shabby, and the hallways dusty and damp, nonetheless there are rumours that within a short period of time it will be as good as new.


Great atmosphere, but noisy bar

Although the vibe is great at the bar area, for some guests who prefer to retire early, this can become quite an issue. There is quite a high noise level, so if you prefer a quiet spot, ask the reception staff to make sure you have a room far away from the pub.
