Our Story

Welcome to Darby’s, your family friendly Freehouse and Restaurant where well-behaved children and pets are welcome.  Following an extensive two month refurbishment, we extend a very warm welcome to our customers, old and new.  Our Chefs are eagerly awaiting to serve you with delicious dishes, all cooked to order using locally produced ingredients.  Whether you visit for a freshly brewed cup of coffee, a pint of local Norfolk real ale or a family gathering, our team of friendly staff will be delighted
to serve you.

Since 1988

Darby’s was created in 1988 from two unoccupied farm cottages, following the closure of the Papermakers Arms in Town Street since then the pub has built up a  loyal following of customers from far and wide.  To cater for todays discerning customers and current legislation, Darbys underwent a major refit.  Our aim is to provide a meeting place for every resident of the village and to continue our tradition of combining great hospitality, friendship and outstanding food and drink.  The pub is the hub!
